I've stayed at the Americana numerous times and find it pleasant and clean, and the staff is very helpful and courteous. They have very prompt, convenient free shuttle service to Reagan National Airport (and some other places too). It may not be luxurious, but it is clean and comfortable, has good free WiFi, a decent breakfast, and good service. They've...

Rooms were clean, bed was comfy, nearby metro, and overall great value for the location. Only problem I had was almost no wifi signal in the room. I had to sit in the lobby to get a signal. Since I was on a business and trip and needed wifi for several hours of work, this was a major pita.

Comfortable, clean, convenient to Washington, D.C. attractions. Great value. I've stayed multiple times. From Crystal City metro, go to/through Crystal GATEWAY Marriott, to Eads St., and north 1 block. (Wish there was a lighted sign since it's dark early now and if I had not been before I would have missed it.)

Location was perfect. Short walk to the metro and the underground mall (crystal city). Easy to get into DC from there each day. Loved exploring the underground malls around the area which seemed to have passages leading on for miles. The staff were quite friendly even though they were quite busy. The elevator needs replacing, it nearly felt unsafe and...

If you want upscale luxury with a hot breakfast-look at spending another $100 or more a night and go somewhere else. If you want a clean, comfortable room with helpful staff, free parking, pastry, cereal, fruit, juice, & coffee for breakfast-that's close to the Metro & reasonably priced-this is the place for you! Would highly recommend!

I stay here most every time I have to work in DC and it's always been the most convenient and affordable. You can walk to the metro and the rooms have always been clean and the beds comfortable. The rooms have mini fridges but no microwaves but there is one in the lobby to use. Great deal for the money.

I'd echo the previous reviews. Free parking and breakfast, clean, helpful staff and plenty of retro character. We didn't bother with the shuttle as the metro is only a short walk away and you can cut through the Marriott. Good strong air con was also a plus.

I go to an annual conference in DC. This hotel costs me about a third of the hotels in downtown DC. The room is basic, but clean. Bed is comfortable. Breakfast is included. And, the Americana shuttle will take you anywhere you need to go within Crystal City. Julio, the driver, always is awesome! In addition, the Americana is 2...

We spent six nights at the Americana while touring Washington DC. I would stay here again. The Americana is a 1960's-era "Motor Lodge" that has remained unchanged while the nearby highway became a freeway and the neighborhood was built up with high rise condos and large, expensive hotels. The Crystal City Metro station is two easy blocks away, with DC...
