We stayed at the Americana for almost a week while visiting DC. A friend had recommended it, and we were not disappointed. It is a no-frills place next to a highway but clean, comfortable and well managed. And the prices are very reasonable. One of the main pluses is convenience - the metro yellow and green lines are just a block away and take you into the heart of DC in a few minutes. So although you're a bit outside the city it really doesn't feel like it. The neighborhood is blah to look at but seems safe. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. The only minuses were that the decor and furnishings are really quite dated and basic. In fact, when we first arrived we were a bit apprehensive upon seeing the rundown sign for the hotel and the peeling carpet in the elevator. But seeing our room put us at ease. Keep in mind the breakfast is just coffee, orange juice and pastries, so don't expect too much. But overall, this place scores above its price range in my opinion, and I would recommend it for the bargain traveler looking for a good place to stay.
