Hotel was older, small rooms, staff was in no hurry, yet polite. Parking is a block down, not next to hotel, but a great deal at only 17 dollars for day you arrive until 4pm the next day. We arrived early and we checked our luggage, nice attendants. Hotel is located in excellent proximity to all Smithsonian's and monuments. When... More

Great location. Small rooms, clean but with few amenities. Good friendly service. We usually stay in Crystal City but wanted to be right in DC. We walked everywhere. Great price. Would stay there again.

Very modest downtown Washington DC hotel with much older rooms. Very clean but very rough looking. The room looked out on an alleyway and was in need of desperate repair and remodel. The room was pricy for its appearance. Great/safe location and friendly staff. Walk everywhere in minutes. We will return.

Right in the middle and easy walking to most everything in DC. The staff was great, our room was clean and neat. The housekeeping was excellent and our only complaint, the bed was anything but new. This is not a 5 star hotel but for your money and if you're on a budget like we are, it would be hard... More

I have stayed at the Harrington five times over the last five years, taking students from the UK. The location is just superb for getting round Washington. The folk at the Harrington, I have always found are helpful and kind. There has been a big effort to refurbish and improve the hotel. It may not pack the big luxuries but... More

It´s over 100 years old and might need a good reurbishment, but beyond that, the rooms are clean and spacious, lights and water work, there are eatig outlets all around for all budgets, and you are 15 minutes away from many of the downtown DC attractios, including the White House, the Mall and its dozens of museums and government buildings,...

As others have said, this is an old building and needs a lot of updating. The location is very close to museums and monuments so that is a plus. Beware of staying there in the summer as the room we had did not have air conditioning. Only a small window opening onto the street with a lot of noise at... More

A museum in itself, the hotel is a delight (101 years old). My family of three was there the week after Easter, 2015, and we spent three nights and four lovely days in DC. Hotel Harrington was convenient to the Washington Visitor Center, Ford's Theatre, and Lincoln Waffle House...all within an easy 1 1/2 blocks. The room 1146 was just... More

This is the only place to stay when in town. You are in the center of everything and can walk wherever. Employees are great, local restraunts are great too. Will definitely be coming here when back in town and reccommending to others.
