Our family of four stayed here this June while visiting Washington DC for tourism. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. The hotel and rooms are immaculate and well tended. Each day, a housekeeper thoroughly cleaned the room and provided us with ample towels. Our room had a fridge where we could keep snacks, adequate power outlets...

Whenever I'm in the Arlington, VA./DC area I stay at the Americana Hotel. Although a bit old fashioned (I like this), it's very clean and comfortable. The shower in my room was amazing. They have a wonderful continental breakfast every morning, free parking and it is less than a block to the metro. The staff is very friendly (and actually...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for four nights. Location is perfect, few blocks from the subway, restaurants and shops. The hotel is clean, offers free parking which is very rare close to DC, we never try the breakfast but is also included. The bed was very small and old, but what we suffer the most was the...

I have stayed at the Americana over the past few years for Memorial Day weekend. Of all the hotels I've stayed in over the years I have to say the staff, prices and cleanliness is the best. I love the newly upgraded rooms. The area is beautiful and only a short walk to the METRO and Chrystal City attractions. I...
