This hotel was cheaper than almost every hotel in a 10 mile radius, newly renovated, and small by hotel standards. But it was charming! It looks iffy from the outside, but rest assured it was just right for us. Parking area protected our car from the snowstorm, the free breakfast was quite nice, and the staff was beyond helpful. We...

The place is clean and nice. I found the shuttle to be helpful. There were several miscommunications on their part that effected me pretty dramatically. Asking LOTS of questions and rechecking reservation details seems to be in order with this hotel. The place is old and the tub did not plug for bath, nor Adrian well for showering. All in...

I found the room to be perfect for my quick stay. It was a bit small, but really just right for one person. The room was clean and I was able to walk to the Metro station at Pentagon City within a few minutes and get on over to the Pentagon. The room was clean. The TV was an older...

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...

Staying at the Americana has become a habit for us when visiting DC. They have an EXCELLENT staff, very pleasant and friendly.

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...
