Stayed here in April and found the place to be an older one but was very comfortable and clean and the staff were so helpful. The place was close to all the amenities and had a choice of two rail stations close by to choose from.

We always stay at the Americana whenever we are in the DC area. The beds are so comfy and I always get a great nights sleep. The staff is fantastic. The place is always very clean and the low price lets us do something extra while we are visiting Washington DC.

This is our second stay at the Americana and we love it as much now as when we first visited. We were in one of the newly renovated rooms, which are very nice but we would still have been happy with the room we had the last time we stayed. The hotel ticks all our boxes - clean rooms, comfy...

I was surprised that a budget hotel could offer so much for such a nice price! Very nice and spacious Queen Bedroom, everything very clean and confortable. The breakfast was included in the price and it was very nice, offering toasts, bagels, donuts, fresh fruit, cereal, and hot drinks. During the whole breakfast the staff keeps filling everything to make...

The hotel looks a little rough in the outside but the lobby and rooms were SO clean. Definitely worth the outstanding rates! Other DC hotels are three times as much so definitely a bang for your buck.

Because we were landing at midnite with a small child, we opted for a hotel very near Reagan Airport. We picked something with a moderate price as our stay would be only a few hours. Tho the property is older, circa 1950, there was some nostalgic charm. Our biggest surprise was the amazing, large, comfortable high quality beds. The sheets...
