I actually stayed in December 2015 but it has taken me this long to write this. I wanted to do it still though because this place was great. It is older and the bathroom was small, but as a solo traveller, not an issue. The actual room was a decent size and you do not hear much noise at all...

This is our third time staying at the Americana. Small family owned. Friendly check in, shuttle and small breakfast. Not all modern and sleek but clean and comfortable. Free wi-fi. Good location. Right next to Crystal City Metro. Free car parking. Easy access from interstate. We will be back to stay again.

My husband and I stayed in room 221 and thought the room was a great value near DCA 2 nights before Inauguration. quiet and comfy. Clean with great wifi. $12 taxi fare from DCA after 11pm when shuttle stops. Close to bus stop. Free continental breakfast. Didn't give it 5 stars due to lack of ice machine on 2nd floor...

If someone is coming to the D.C. area, I doubt he or she is going to stay in the hotel all day. Why not rent a room at an immaculately clean hotel, that's quiet, with a great staff, and a free breakfast? The location is a five-minute walk from the subway, and Crystal City has tons of restaurants and activities...

I was slightly apprehensive when we first arrived at the hotel - the outside could definitely do with some work. However I was pleasantly surprised when we went in. Our room was lovely and modern; the bathroom was slightly dated but clean enough. Free continental breakfast in the morning which was good enough. Couldn't have asked for more for our...

If you're looking for a fancy high-rise, this isn't it. If you're looking for a hotel that is clean, comfortable, has a friendly and accommodating staff, is in a safe location within minutes of a short metro ride to downtown, this is the one! We loved staying here. The staff of this hotel treated us like family- and it's easy...

I'm not going to lie, I was very apprehensive when we arrived at the hotel, the outside looked very dated and more like a motel. It wasn't until we actually stepped into our room that I felt ok. Bathrooms are still dated but the actual room has modern upgrades. The staff were very helpful and my husband and I appreciated...

Conveniently located near the metro, plenty of parking and large room, the Americana sports everything the business traveller needs. Breakfast is a bit Spartan but staff are friendly and helpful. This is a no-fuss hotel

This hotel offers very affordable accommodation in the Arlington area. It is very convenient to travel by metro into town. The rooms are quite spacious and the air conditioning worked well. Yes the bathroom is old-style, but it is very clean so it really didn't matter. The lift is very slow but there are stairs so it's not a problem....
