As many have posted, the hotel looks very dated and out of place for the area, but it is VERY clean and is probably the best deal in DC area.
The staff were very helpful and shuttle service was great. If you want to stay in for dinner after a long day, ask the shuttle driver to take you to the Kabob Palace a few blocks away for some take-out....simply awesome.
If you're looking for the Ritz, this isn't it. But if you're looking for a good clean and inexpensive tourist hotel in the DC area, I'd advise you to give the Americana a chance.
