Clean rooms, friendly staff, decent continetal breakfast- all at an inexpensive price in the heart of Arlington. Easy walking distance to the metro, the Pentagon and Crystal City. Great value for the price!

We are amazed at how nice and convenient the Americana is. We love staying there. We will be back. Convenient to the metro and all DC landmarks. Free parking! That's incredible. Low rates. Clean. Good breakfast for free.

I am a professional Entomologist and stayed at this hotel. The second night at the hotel I was bitten by bedbugs. I reported the mild infestation and requested to be changed to a new room.

My boyfriend and I were taking our first trip together to Washington DC for half of our spring break in March. We chose this hotel based on the reviews of tripadvisor and we were not disappointed.

"To each his own" -- obviously, there are enough guests who have a good experience and rate this place highly. The good reviews were why I gave this place a try.

This hotel was cheaper than almost every hotel in a 10 mile radius, newly renovated, and small by hotel standards. But it was charming! It looks iffy from the outside, but rest assured it was just right for us. Parking area protected our car from the snowstorm, the free breakfast was quite nice, and the staff was beyond helpful.
