This is an old hotel and the small room was decorated in a time warp to the 1990s, but everything was clean and worked well. A great location and a great money-saving option. The black out curtains were excellent for those of you with jetlag.

Stayed at this hotel with my sister and grandkids. We were a bit skeptical of this place because of the low price and a few of the reviews. Well, let me tell you - we will definitely be staying here again. In fact, we often take Amtrak from VA and return the same day because of the high prices of... More

Location and travel value define Hotel Harrington. Stayed for three nights (my second stay by the way), this time on the 6th floor. I truly appreciate the super location and pricing for a visit to Washington. The queen sized beds were comfortable, refrigerator in room, ice machine on the same floor. Front desk was most helpful during our stay, and... More

My husband and I had tickets to a performance at Warner Theater so we decided to stay at Hotel Harrington - a 3 minute walk. We were greeted by a very friendly staff and the room was very acceptable, bathroom was clean and bed comfortable. This is an old hotel but it does have character. After we checked in and... More

This was the worst hotel I have stayed in over 40 years. The management of this hotel has apparently made a decision to cut the costs of operations rather than to invest in the property. I chose this hotel by its rate and proximity. Also many of the comments on Tripadvisor rated it as at least acceptable to a very... More

Just a block away from the train station, this 100-year old hotel is definitely OLD but in D.C. i think this is a good thing. History is part of its charm. If you do not believe in ghosts that is. I don't and although the age of the rooms may give an errie feel to it, everything was fine. Everything... More

This hotel has been around for 100 years but it doesn't feel that old. It's not fancy but it is in a great location and everyone who worked there was nice and helpful. I would stay here for a night again.

My husband and I stayed here because all of the other hotels we like were booked. The location is good, just a few minutes walk to the Mall and the White House. The accommodations were in need of an upgrade, but for the price we paid, it's what we would expect. This is not a Marriott but a few steps... More

I was prepared for an old hotel on the basis of other reviews I had read. What I found at Hotel Harrington was better than I had expected. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the bathroom was clean and everything worked fine, apart from the fact that there was no plug for the hairdryer in the bathroom. There was... More

My daughters and I stayed here in late January while we toured DC. We absolutely loved it!! We were all tired of the same old cookie cutter hotels, and enjoyed the old charm this place has. The hotel is over 100 years old, and has some quirks. The rooms are small. WHO CARES!?!?! You're sleeping, not doing floor gymnastics. The... More
