Another great stay at this property. Great location with easy access to Metro, shopping, restaurants and DC. The staff is always pleasant and helpful, the rooms a great value and clean, free parking, free breakfast, free shuttle service.....what more could you ask. If I has to find a negative, the Wi-Fi connection in my room was nonexistent but I was able to connect on my phone so it really wasn't an issue. Will continue to recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for one night. We had to be to Arlington for a funeral early in the AM so stayed over night. Our room was very clean, reasonably priced and the staff were wonderful. We would stay here again. The breakfast was nice and convenient. Parking on site was a plus since many of the DC hotels charge for parking. It is close to Metro and places to eat. We really liked it. The 4 min drive to the cemetery was so nice, especially knowing what DC traffic can be like. If you need a clean, friendly, inexpensive place to base camp for DC this is the place. Thank you Americana Hotel.

The people were very accommodating when my original booked room was not available. They got me in a new room, newly renovated, very clean, and a new flat screen tv.
Location within walking distance from the train station.

The price was right for this hotel and although dated, it was very clean. The group I traveled with had no issues with their room. It was just me.

I checked in at 3:45 PM and got a key. I requested a deluxe room on the first floor. When I got to the room, I had to wait outside as they were just starting to clean it. Check in time is 3:30 PM so it should have been finished and they also shouldn't check people in to a room that isn't cleaned yet.

The Deluxe room is supposedly a renovated room. Probably just the sheets since the rest of the room was pretty dated. The refrigerator in the room didn't work. They came to make sure it was plugged in, which it was, and there was nothing they could do about it on a Saturday night. Then I went to shower. The water was ice cold and wouldn't get hot no matter what I did. Finally took a cold shower since I was meeting friends. Maintenance came and he had no issue getting it hot. The next morning I discovered what the issue was since it was scalding hot and it wouldn't cool down. Seems the hot and cold water control was loose. The only way to adjust the temp was to turn it off, move the control to where you thought it would be at a good temperature and then turn it back on. This worked. I realized that it worked for maintenance since he had turned it off and was moving it back and forth before turning it back on.

I will say the maintenance man was extremely pleasant and nice. And the hotel was responsive in sending maintenance. The other odd thing was that my friends asked me why I didn't get some ice to help get my bottled water cold and it was then I learned that they all had ice buckets except me.

Overall it's a good deal for the money and the included breakfast was a real plus. I just didn't like paying for a deluxe room that had so many issues.

It's the second time we went to D.C and it's the second time we spend the night in the Americana hotel. We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is in Arlington but very close by to the subway station. In 10 minutes you can get to downtown traveling in very clean subways.
The hotel in itself is very clean and quiet, with a very decent breakfast and very helpful people at the front desk. In addition it has parking for free, which make you save some bucks.
To sum up, the hotel has all you need when you go to D.C and all for a very affordable price.
We strongly recommend this hotel.

our flight out of washington was delayed so we had to find a nearby hotel to spend the night. we searched the web and found americana which was reasonably priced compared to other hotels in the area. the free shuttle was really beneficial to us. the rooms a bit ran down and though clean, you cant help but feel itchy or sneezy once inside. the free breakfast was mostly bread, muffins, donuts and cereals. there is a vending machine that sells water, coke, etc. it is also a few blocks away from pentagon city mall so we bought our dinner there.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The price was very reasonable; the room was neat and clean; the staff was very friendly and helpful; and the breakfast was quite good. Three different kinds of fruit were provided, as well as four kinds of dry cereal plus oatmeal. They also had two kinds of juice, bagels, toast, and very good pastries.

It was also just a five minute walk one direction from the Metro, and a five minute walk the other direction to the conference hotels like the Doubletree. For those who do not want to walk, they also provide shuttle van service to the area.

Travelers hints: If you need more than one electrical outlet at either the table or at bedside, be sure to bring a short extension cord. There is one outlet available both places, but if you need more than one, you'll need an extension cord with a multiple outlet.

Also, shampoo, hand lotion, tissues, and a hair dryer were provided, there was no clock or clock radio.
