We stayed at the American Inn and used the Metro to get into Washington DC to do some sightseeing. This hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the nearest Metro station. By purchasing a metro pass, you can get anywhere in DC and not have to attempt the traffic, which is a HUGE plus. Not to mention, this hotel has tons of restaurants around it, and a top rated Mexican restaurant in it. You won’t lack for choices here.
The rooms themselves are nice and clean. Not a lot of modern touches, but you get super fast WiFi, and Directv service. Breakfast is complimentary and is served from 6:30-9:30 am and has hot and cold choices. Again, everyone can find something they like to start their day. The staff are very pleasant and welcoming. Parking is limited, but also free. If you can’t find a spot on the site, they work with you to accommodate for it.
We chose to stay here based on recommendations from friends. The rates are less than finding a room in DC and the free parking and breakfast was a bonus. Let’s face it, you aren’t going to be hanging out in your room all day, so why pay extra for something. The American Inn was a perfect fit for us, and I would definitely recommend and return here in the future.
