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

This hotel is like stepping back in time and I loved it! If you are looking for a posh, luxury experience this hotel is not for you.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Harrington in mid-November. We liked it a lot. True, it is old, but that adds to it's charm. We were in a Queen room. It was small, but nice.

We stayed in a room with a queen sized bed and two single beds. But the bathroom looks very dirty and the floor is very dusty, so everyone I step on it with my bare foot my feet will get all black! The telephone is also from the 1800s and there is no boiler. At least there is quite a... More

Hotel has a small fridge, kettle and coffee but not much else in terms of facilities. Breakfast is not included but Harry's downstairs is nice with okay pricing. Decent for a dinner though and plenty of options for meals. Hotel desk clerk lacked enthusiasm. You can reach all major sights from here by walking which is the biggest plus. CVS... More

This hotel is in an excellent location - the Whitehouse is within walking distance and the monuments are a bit further on from the Whitehouse. However, for the price we paid to stay here, we would have paid a little bit extra to stay somewhere much nicer. The hotel is run down, the rooms are small and mouldy, and the... More
