The Americana Hotel is a great option for those on a budget. It’s one of the older style hotels in the area and is close to the airport and mass transit, plenty of restaurants and shopping.
Other perks at the Americana include free wifi, free parking, and free continental breakfast. The hotel also offers free local shuttle service to and from Reagan National Airport, Crystal City, Metro Stations, the Pentagon, the Pentagon City Mall, Crystal City Shops and Crystal Drive, Pentagon Row and 23rd Street Restaurant Row. There are also two Metro stops within walking distance. The hotel has been serving the Washington, D.C. area for more than 50 years.
