This hotel was built in 1968. It is a quaint charming hotel in the shadows of the modern high rise hotels which tower above it. Looking at the hotel I imagine it as it must have been in it's heyday just a few miles from the Pentagon. This hotel may be older but it's is very nice (and I am...

The Americana Hotel is very reasonably priced, especially compared to the majority of hotels anywhere near the Washington DC area. Clean, comfortable, free parking and breakfast, and very friendly staff. very accessible to get into DC...especially using Uber!

Good price, great staff, good room and maintained well. Internet was spotty. No microwave, but small refrigerator was fine. Great location near shopping, restaurants, and the metro. No exercise equipment but, it wasn't what I came for... no big deal.

This hotel doesn't pack a punch on the outside, but it's what's on the inside that counts. First, Esther at the front desk/booking really helped me when I discovered that I had not made the reservation that I thought I had. She checked and called me back to make sure I got in. Then, all the people at the front...

Super clean, super affordable, super friendly staff, super stay! I was a little worried that for the price it wouldn't be a nice hotel but I was wrong! Comfortable bed and so clean! Continental breakfast was pretty minimal but you're only two blocks from the metro. Make sure to reserve your room in advance for the best price.

I choose this Hotel as it had an affordable price and was near the subway ( 500M). Also they had a transfer to-from airport, which i used, at the time i needed; no wasting time. I advised them i expected ( many) merchandise from Amazom, and they kept all for mewithout pricing it. Decente breakfast from 6-10 Am. Very nice...

The Americana Hotel was not my first choice, but the conference hotel was fully booked, and I am very happy I ended up there. My conference did not allow for a lot of free time so I was looking for a comfortable, clean place to get a good night's sleep so I could operate effectively. The Americana really filled the...

The airport shuttle was well organized, easily available, clean and with a good driver. The facilities were clean and location was awesome. Price was great too for the area. Staff was nice and helpful. Small room but for the purpose was absolutely fine. Breakfast had some fruits but we did not use it much anyway having breakfast provided at another...

The Americana is a small motel like hotel in Arlington VA just a few minute walk to the crystal city metro station. The room was a decent size, no odors noted. The bed was king size and about average comfort for a hotel room. Only problem was the key card didn't work at first so had to head back to...
