Yes, it's not super fancy. Yes, the amenities are basic. But for a budget hotel - especially mid-week, when other hotel prices are outrageous, it's absolutely perfect. Easy to get in and out of, just minutes at most from 395 and Rt. 1. The Crystal City shops & metro stop are a block away, it was snowing & cold while...

We stayed at the Americana during a DC snowstorm. Everything was welcoming and warm. The staff helped us with directions to the underground mall nearby and updated info on the airport . Our shuttle took us right to our flight the next morning even though snow was everywhere.

Although we started off a little iffy ... non-smoking hotel but got a room that reeked of cigarette smoke and it was 11:00 pm, this incredibly accommodating staff moved us into a different room for the night then set us up in another room the next day. Beds were comfortable and the room was extremely clean. It was bitterly cold...
