We stayed at the Americana 3 nights and when we got our first glimpse, we were a little scared of what was in store for us. However we were pleasently surprised. The staff is wonderfull, helpfull, and full of information on the area and DC. The rooms were really basic but comfortable. They have a washer and dryer available for use and even provide the soap, you do have to pay for the dryer though.
As for the safety, we walked around the area at night and did not feel at all unsafe in the area or in the hotel. The metro is indeed with in walking distance, especially if you take the short cut through the Marriott.
If you are looking for comfortable and affordable we definately suggest the Americana, just prepare your self for the appearence, it is not the Marriott. If we ever come back to the area though, we will definately stay at the Americana.
