The hotel is over 100 years old. It is fine for the location, but not fancy at all. We chose it for the price and location and we were very happy with both. We could easily walk to the Metro and even most of the sights. Room had a m'wave and small fridge, and AC. The AC was central, meaning... More

We are somewhat familiar with Washington, but we have visitors from Poland who wanted to see DC. We found the Harrington to be a good, basic accommodation, and reasonably priced, at least be Washington standards, and a location close to tour bus stops, and the White House.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights. When I arrived, the hotel smelled of stale seafood. I checked in with the clerk whom was very friendly. The appearance of the hotel seemed to be clean. I went to my room and the room was pretty small. The tub had lots of calk work done to it. The ice machine... More

Clean and reasonable. Best part is walking distance to all major attractions. National mall just a block away. Not the best in facilities, but clean and friendly staff. Stayed for 3 days and enjoyed it. Recommended.

The room was clean and tidy however the walls and ceiling looked a bit damp. The decor was dated and the blanket on the bed felt very old. The shower wasn't great, it only sprayed out one side and without much force. Furthermore it was hard to get a good temperature as it kept going freezing cold or boiling hot.... More

The hotel and the rooms are old , but it is clean and the location and price is right! The staff is very helpful and friendly. My son and I took Uber which cost $7 and was a lot nicer than the taxi's. The hotel offers room service and I would definitely recommend their chicken salad, salad. I would love... More

After reading reviews I decided that outdated but clean and comfy with a perfect location would work for me and my boyfriend. Boy was I so wrong, I had stayed at outdated hotels before and still had a good experience but not at the Hotel Harrington. It was not clean. There was dust and lint caked in the bathroom vent,...

We (family of four) stayed a few nights while touring Washington DC. This 100 year old establishment didn't have any bells or whistles, but the staff were very nice and helpful. They gave the kids a nice kids guide which they thought was cool. The room was small and couldn't open the closest door all the way because of the... More

This was my homebase as I explored DC. Easy to walk and catch the train. Best of all, easy for tourists to FIND in the midst of a new city as there are flags lining the entire perimeter. Maps were helpful to tourists. Room was a bit dark but this is really a get up and go launch pad rather... More

About a mile from the train station and two blocks from the Smithsonian. If you don't mind walking then you're about 15 minutes from the Capitol building or the Lincoln memorial. If you take a cab $15 will get you anywhere. The hotel and rooms are nice and clean but the room was a little small. Awesome view from my... More
