This was everything we expected from previous reviews. Well located, cheap, and a bit rundown. It's a bit like an old London hotel in the 1980s. Still, it did the trick and if you are looking for someone good and cheap close to the Mall, this is well worth a look.

We visited this hotel over Easter! Fantastic location! Within walking distance to the White House and Smithsonians and Spy Museum. It's a bit of a walk but worth it to avoid parking issues. Parking is a block down for this hotel but reasonably priced. The hotel is dated, but very clean. Staff was nice. We didn't eat onsite so cannot... More

This hotel is clearly in need of a cash infusion, but the location is wonderful. Close to the metro, great restaurants and the Smithsonian. If they do make it improvements, the price will probably change, so if you want a reasonable price, it is a good choice. We were in room 833 and it was quiet and the bathroom was... More

The first two nights we needed rooms, the Holiday Inn was too expensive, so we just booked this hotel for all 5 nights. However, for $175/night, this place was too 'budget'. No perks, including not being able to adjust the AC, so too hot at night, and wifi did not work. Holiday Inn ended up being about $50 more a... More

DC is prohibitively expensive. Hotel Harrington is conveniently located, clean, and quiet enough for us. We asked for an extra fan that was promised but not delivered twice, so my husband finally went down and got their attention face-to-face. The fan was then delivered lickety-split. The place is old -- celebrating their centennial is kind of a giveaway -- but... More

As everyone has said, the location for the price is fantastic. The staff was especially helpful to us. Held our bags until check in and remembered us easily a few hours later with warm greeting. Can't beat that! Yes, it's older and yes, it's just in mediocore shape (paint is thickly layered to cover age instead of sanding and restoring,... More

My family and I recently stayed at the Hotel Harrington and had a very good experience. The location was fantastic and allowed us to walk to all of the museums and many wonderful restaurants. Yes it is old and I would love to see some restoration/updates done to embrace it's history and modernize it. However, if you are used to... More

At check-in, I thought oh-oh....as the lady that checked us in was initially rude. Other than that small blip, the rest of our 4 day stay was great! To be sure, the hotel is old and really could use an update....but, our rooms were clean, housekeeping was responsive to our needs (kids/baby), everything we needed was there and if it... More
