The Americana was great! For just about $70 a night we had a lovely room unbelievably close to DC. Other hotels in the neighborhood were four times as expensive, and didn't include breakfast, wifi, and more that came with the price of the room at the Americana. The staff was extremely kind and helpful, parking couldn't have been easier, the... More

The Americana does the important task of getting all of be basics down, without getting lost in making a bullet list of amenities. Do you want a good bed, in a quiet room, in a great location, for a shockingly low price? If so, then the Americana is a brilliant hotel for your stay.

I stayed in this small hotel for 7 days, and all was great. This hotel (unlike other big hotels) offers many free services such as wifi, shuttle services to nearby locations (such as metro, airport), parking, and coffee and tea all day long. The rooms are big and very clean. The only one thing I didn't like is that the... More

This hotel was relatively cheap ($69 in total per night) and was 4 minutes drive to Reagan Airport. I also took a quick cab ride to all the major tourist attractions (about $15 if you begin with Lincoln Memorial). Room was relatively clean, except for the bottle of used lotion on the bedside table (ewwwwww...) I've stayed in worse places,... More

A little run down, but the rooms are comfortable. The hallways are hot from air conditioners venting into them, and the elevator is slow. Breakfast minimal but okay. Room though, are clean and comfortablea and reasonable quite. Desk personnel friendly. Kind of a cool, old-world vibe.

This hotel is convenient to the metro and has free parking which is a big benefit if you drive to DC and don't want to pay an extra $40-$50 for parking in additional to much higher hotel prices. All was clean and the service was good. The staff very helpful and polite. The breakfast was not my kind of breakfast... More

The Americana Hotel is very well located for the metro but not for amenities such as restaurants, etc. However, the hotel offers a free shuttle to Regan Airport and the local area so it balances out. The hotel is quaint in some aspects but VERY dated in most others and is in dire need of renovation. The bathrooms are old... More

I recently took a group of high school seniors on their class trip to Washington DC from a very small town in northern Wisconsin. The kids were on a budget and we were trying to find a good deal on hotel rooms. We didn't want to pay a lot because we were going to be touring the city all day.... More

-Clean room, linens, bathroom, etc. -I got the deluxe queen room, and should have just gone w/ the standard. there was nothing special about the room. further, the sliding glass door to the room didn't close all the way--there was a gap that let in a lot of street noise. a bar at the bottom of the slider kept it...

I've stayed at the Americana twice and have really enjoyed both of my stays. The hotel is very close to the Crystal City metro station (approximately a 5 minute walk) and they have a free shuttle that will take you pretty much anywhere. I love that there is free parking, which is rare in the DC area. They also have... More
