My husband and I drove down to DC from NH in September. We chose this hotel mostly based on the reviews here and an amazing price. The parking was included which was a huge plus for us since we were driving down. We left the car at the hotel most days, since we took the metro everywhere except one day....

We came to Washington for my Dad's inurnment ceremony at the national cemetery. (My stepmom stayed at the nearby Key Bridge Marriott; she had a great view, but had a smaller room for way more than twice the price.) We found the hotwater faucet handle in our bathroom sink almost twisted off so we had to use the undersink valve...

This place was a steal for the money. My room was updated except the bathroom, which seemed to be original. It was clean, the staff was friendly, they offered a free shuttle around the area, free breakfast and the price was amazing. Recommend and will be back 😍

The hotel is nothing special but the staff was great and the location is awesome. The hotel is kind of hard to find, as the address is listed on Jefferson Davis Highway but the entrance to the hotel is on Eads St. The rooms were nothing special but comfortable and great for the price. The Crystal City metro stop is...

The Americana is an old school hotel....no frills...but safe and comfortable. The breakfast and free WiFi are very nice extras. The staff is friendly and helpful. Hotel is close to subway and very affordable.

Although I gave a 5 star, it should probably be a 4.5 because it is impossible to be that perfect. I also read in the past some bad comments about old key entry and other things that have all been updated. The keyless touch entry cards are great when trying to get into your room with your hands full. The...

Nice location and services but i had two specific problems, one was the wifi signal is bad and two was that during my stay the room door was damage and i need to force it to open, once the manager fixed was good the stay.

This hotel is an amazing bargain for the location. If you drive, you can park your car yourself (free) with easy access in and out. Their 24 hour shuttle takes you anywhere you need to go throughout the Crystal City area, including Reagan National airport. If you need "fancy" and "luxury" then pay a minimum of 2-3 times more and...
