This is my third stay here and there will be more in the future. The first time I stayed at the Americana I thought UH OH when I pulled into the parking lot. The hotel is kind of sunken down below the neighboring high rises but thats due to the Highway construction and properties that built up around it. The parking lot (Wow it has one) is a little dingy and could use a little makeup but....FREE PARKING!!! The office is in the back (which used to be the front before the highway was improved) but is large and comfortable for breakfast or relaxing w/a cup of coffee. Check in was simple with no hassles even when trying to use a coupon. My room was fine and VERY clean even though the hotel is obviously over 50 years old (which is kind of charming). Basic amenities like soap, shampoo, hair dryer, iorn, board, micro fridge, ice, laundry room and 24 hour desk clerk. Internet access is free but only in part of the hotel...so ask for that section when you check in or you will be in the hallway sitting on a couch with your laptop. Our window was not in too good of shape. They are sliding glass but disabled so you can't go out on the balcony for some reason.. The patrons have been mixed ranging from high school sports teams to buisness people to tourists to some airline pilots. After 3 stays I feel very safe in this hotel with no shady looking people hanging around. The location couldn't be much better. Two subway stations within 2 or 3 blocks (pentagon city) and (crystal city) a little closer but pentagon city is at the mall. Not many restaurants on the block but many at 2 to 4 blocks away.
