I stayed at Americana Hotel this past weekend with two of my friends. We loved everything about the hotel. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the continental breakfast was a nice touch. We loved the fact that we didn't have to move the car, because of the wonderful driving service, and the fact that the hotel was close to the metro. Best of all, the people who work at the hotel were so friendly and helpful! We will be back!

We did not know what to expect from what we saw online, but we were surprisingly pleased. The rooms were clean and all of the staff was very accommodating. The only thing that we would have changed is that our bathroom did not have a fan and became foggy and very humid after showers.

We stayed just one night to be close to DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival. Room was clean and large enough for our needs. Location was great, just a block from the Crystal City Metro (through the Marriott). Only problem was traffic noise and late night guests next door. We could hear their shower and toilet - woke us up! Breakfast in the morning was good, enough to get the day started. Free parking a huge plus!

At first I was afraid to book this hotel since it is not very pretty to look at but most of the reviews were very good. So I decided to take the chance. I just have to say that I got exactly what I was told I would get. It is definitely not a luxury hotel but it is clean, friendly, and safe. As most of the reviews say, the furnishings are a bit old but they are well kept. After spending all day riding the metro and walking around DC, it was great to get off at the station and walk a block and half to the hotel and go to sleep on good bed. I did not wake up sore like I have in most of the more expensive chain hotels that I've stayed at before. The continental breakfast was as good as you would get at more expensive hotel. The staff was very helpful when we asked where, when, and how to get somewhere. All in all, it was a pleasant stay and I would definitely go back again.

Stayed at the Americana for 2 nights over Easter break. Ideal location. Clean hotel, decent continental breakfast and very, very friendly staff. Near the Crystal City shopping area and a quick walk to the metro. Also, FREE PARKING. Where can you get free parking in DC? This is an ideal spot for touring DC. Blue line metro takes you to all the touristy stops (Smithsonian and Foggy Bottom). The hotel is dated, but who cares? You will get a comfortable bed, clean accommodations, free parking, and a breakfast to get you going. Also free WIFI. Check on line at their web page... rates are better than any other site and also better than if you call the hotel. Spend all of the money saved on great dining in Crystal City.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Americana Hotel. The area is very safe and the price was just right for our budget; Continental breakfast is included; the hotel is two blocks from the metro station; they have a shuttle that takes you around. Parking is free. The hotel is clean and close to DC by Metro or car, and the hotel personnel was extremely nice. I would definitely recommend it if you are visiting DC and you are on a budget. I traveled with my husband and a 16 and a 17 year old.

The Americana Hotel is a fabulous place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Washington. From its convenient location (a 5-7 minute walk away from 2 separate Metro stations; very near Reagan Airport and downtown DC) to its helpful and friendly staff to the quality of the rooms to the continental breakfast (with a variety of foods to select) to the fantastic value, it's difficult to top an experience at the Americana.
