This was our first trip the DC area and we really enjoyed our 4 night stay. There is so much to see in the area it would take months to try to see everything.We stayed at the Americana hotel because some friends had stayed a few years ago and told us if we went to DC we should stay there...

This hotel is older but has been looked after. The rooms are in the process of being updated although the room we stayed in, which hadn't been decorated, was perfectly fine. It wasn't the largest room we had on our trip but was adequate for our needs. The hotel staff were incredibly helpful, even offering to drive us to the...

Our goal was to have a clean, comfortable room that was close to the metro and had free parking. The Americana Hotel fit all of our criteria. The staff was very friendly and the rooms clean, although a bit outdated. The bed was great. They supply a refrigerator in each room and even gave us a 7th night free for...

This was a rather retro hotel complete with neon signs and ageing furnishings in the room. The bathroom and its shower and sink was really small, though the other rooms our family was in had slightly bigger bathrooms. The bed was decent and everything was clean, but the TV reception wasn't of good quality in my room though it was...

The Americana Hotel is vintage 60s, updated with smart modern interior fabrics, a good quality breakfast, some of the best brewed coffee I've had in hotel breakfasts and more. We arrived early and got a check in immediately. And we parked our car free for 3 full days with a two night stay. The staff provides free shuttle service to...

This was our first time at this hotel. The shuttle service from DCA was awesome! The front desk was so accommodating and allowed us to check in several hours early so we could get to an appointment. The location is perfect; just a block or so away from the blue line Metro making travel so easy. The front desk guy...

This is a very nice, clean and friendly hotel. My room with two double beds was roomy. The bathroom was a bit dated but very clean and even a bit retro, quite functional. The towels and linens are great quality and generously supplied as are the soap, lotion, shampoo etc. this hotel is a super location for catching the metro...

This was my second stay in this hotel. It was just as great as the first one. We arrived a hour or so earlier than check-in time, but the clerk graciously allowed us to go ahead to our room. The room is basic but clean and adequate for our needs. I especially appreciated the mini fridge in the room where...
