This hotel is more than 100 years old and it shows. Accommodations are very humble but the location is absolutely fantastic. Within 5 minutes walk to the National Mall and all the amazing sights and museums. The White House is about a 10mins walk. Public transportation (bus, subway) nearby and taxi cabs by the door. The rooms were clean and... More

Location and cost were the most important things to us while visiting Washington D.C. and Hotel Harrington was perfectly located and perfectly priced! The employees were very pleasant and we especially liked that they take pets. We had a small dog with us and he stayed in a room that was designated for pets. The only downfall was the itty... More

The hotel is in a great location close to union station and all of the monuments! The hotel its self is 101 years old and has not been renovated since the 70's. There is no air conditioning in the rooms and we were placed in a smoking room it was not a good experience. The price is very low for... More

Our family was visiting DC for a quick 3 day, 2 night trip. Our goal was to cram as much as possible into that time. We wanted to be as centrally located as possible and not spend a lot of money on a hotel, because we weren't going to be spending much time there. We needed a comfortable place to... More

Wow... Where do I begin? We booked this room because it was centrally located. Totally made a wrong decision. Stains on walls, mattresses, return air vent clogged, smelled, bought a shower curtain to put on top of bed. I wished I brought bed bug spray!! The towels had a odor to them. Told front desk... Gave us a 10% discount... More

The Harrington was absolutely fine for us. It is good value, and bedrooms are clean. The location is phenomenal, a couple of blocks from the Smithsonian etc. It is basic and rather dated but very convenient and the staff are helpful.

The hotel was recommended by tourist board but rooms are very dated and dirty. Nearby building had construction all night. Although it's convenient would not recommend. Rooms felt unsafe and the beds need new mattresses bad. Suggest looking for other options before you travel.

Hotel Harrington is one of the few places where a family can get multiple beds in the same room, which, traveling with children and grandchildren, was the most important thing we were searching for.. While a little outdated, it is 100 years old, it is clean and comfortable, offers free WIFI, and has competent and courteous staff. The Harrington is... More

The room was very small and there was this very weird system to adjust the A/C. A/C couldnt be turned off and I ended up having a cold after staying there for a night. The room was also not clean and did not look very pleasant. Wifi was also quite slow.

The hotel and rooms are very basic. The general condition is clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for the DC tourist. The food at Harrys was good and affordable. There is a Subway a block away for the basics. For a room to sleep in at less than 1/2 the cost of surrounding hotels I... More
