Although I gave a 5 star, it should probably be a 4.5 because it is impossible to be that perfect. I also read in the past some bad comments about old key entry and other things that have all been updated. The keyless touch entry cards are great when trying to get into your room with your hands full. The...

This hotel was great for an affordable rate but when comes to the well kept of the property it was not a great property to stay at. I was given not right information for traveling during the holidays and I had to pay for transportation to an from the hotel to airport because the free shuttle was not running for...

Nice location and services but i had two specific problems, one was the wifi signal is bad and two was that during my stay the room door was damage and i need to force it to open, once the manager fixed was good the stay.

This hotel is an amazing bargain for the location. If you drive, you can park your car yourself (free) with easy access in and out. Their 24 hour shuttle takes you anywhere you need to go throughout the Crystal City area, including Reagan National airport. If you need "fancy" and "luxury" then pay a minimum of 2-3 times more and...

I stayed at AH for five nights. Staff are good, room is nice, large, and clean, bed is very comfort, and breakfast is also worth enough. The location is convenience from D.C. by metro, and Pentagon City is also close from AH. Wifi signal is not so strong, it's only small problem for me. Thanks AH during my stay there.

Easy to overlook due to its low profile in an upscale area of Crystal City this hotel is a low cost alternative for a stay in DC. Great location near Metro, inexpensive, comfortable rooms, free breakfast, and a free shuttle to Wash National airport. Not luxurious but clean and well kept.

I've stayed at the Americana numerous times and find it pleasant and clean, and the staff is very helpful and courteous. They have very prompt, convenient free shuttle service to Reagan National Airport (and some other places too). It may not be luxurious, but it is clean and comfortable, has good free WiFi, a decent breakfast, and good service. They've...

Rooms were clean, bed was comfy, nearby metro, and overall great value for the location. Only problem I had was almost no wifi signal in the room. I had to sit in the lobby to get a signal. Since I was on a business and trip and needed wifi for several hours of work, this was a major pita.

Comfortable, clean, convenient to Washington, D.C. attractions. Great value. I've stayed multiple times. From Crystal City metro, go to/through Crystal GATEWAY Marriott, to Eads St., and north 1 block. (Wish there was a lighted sign since it's dark early now and if I had not been before I would have missed it.)

Location was perfect. Short walk to the metro and the underground mall (crystal city). Easy to get into DC from there each day. Loved exploring the underground malls around the area which seemed to have passages leading on for miles. The staff were quite friendly even though they were quite busy. The elevator needs replacing, it nearly felt unsafe and...
