We had to go to an embassy to get my son's study visa, a quick in and out. I didn't want to spend a fortune, just a clean room for the night. When we pulled in in the middle of a rainy night I started to second guess myself-this is NOT a modern looking, sleek hotel. And then we got... More

We stayed in a newly renovated room which was very nice. The bathroom was not renovated but ok anyway. The hotel was located within 5-10 minutes walk from two metrostations. The area felt safe to walk around in, even in the evenings. It's a 10 minute walk to the Pentagon City shopping mall and in that area there are a... More

A quick run down of what is great about this hotel. The price, the staff helpfulness, the shuttle bus to restaurant area or Metro stations, the rooms - perfectly adequate (and we were there 6 nights), a decent breakfast range, free coffee and sometimes doughnuts all day. The area was safe. We walked back from 23rd street two or three... More

My wife and I called this hotel 3 days before deciding to go to DC. I spoke with Esther, a very friendly lady at the front desk and she told me that she had to call me back for there was no vacancy at that time. What's amazing was that Esther called me back that very same day and assured... More

The gentlemen behind the desk and the lady with long black hair were extremely nice and so informative and very very nice. There was one lady with short hair that seemed to think that we were bothering her every time we said hi or if anyone walked up to her. We informed her on our first night 11/1 that our... More

My husband and I went to Washington to babysit for our grandson while our daughter attended a conference that was held at an elegant hotel in the city. We chose the Americana as a less expensive alternative to that hotel. We were very pleased with our decision. Although the breakfast was a very satisfactory cold buffet, there was NO free... More

My wife and I stayed here on our honey moon in March. We loved the retro feel and nice staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Great location for walking to the metro and getting to the Crystal City shops. Good breakfast and quiet rooms. Loved the water pressure in the shower. We will most definitely return on our next trip... More

Traveled from Nashville to D.C. for the Marine Corps Marathon. Stayed from Oct. 27th to Nov. 1st. Upon arrival our bathroom toilet did not want to flush. Our so called newly renovated room had a broken chair at least 30yrs old. The paint was chipping in the bathroom and had a funny smell. We overlooked these things but when the... More

Accommodating and many visitors are regular such as airline crew, business people and it is not as well known so they may have an opening when all other hotels are booked. Very close to the airport with a shuttle. Not a bad option just know it is an extended and upgraded motel but still has the motel as part of... More
