I was here for a school group trip and we stayed here for three nights. I thought the hotel was nice for its age and I liked the fact of how old it looked. The only problem that I had was that when I tryed to charge my phone the plugin sorta fell out of the wall. My group stayed... More

The Harrington is the longest continuously running hotel in DC. And it shows. The rooms, even the deluxe suite I was in, are old, rundown and a little mouldy. This say said, you don't stay here for the rooms. You stay here for the location. You are two blocks from The White House. You are a five minute walk from... More

I just could not believe the poor level of infrastructure of this hotel. I don't think that 170 USD per night is cheap. I would pay 40 a night at the most. After check in, I spent 45 minutes in my room, in absolute shock, then left in panic to a friend's house at 11 pm on a Sunday. The... More

We arrived on the Greyhound bus from Newark to spend 3 nights at the Hotel Harrington in Washington DC where we found we could easily walk to the White House and was right in the heart of the old part of DC close to most of the things we wanted to see. Yes the hotel is old and could do... More

The Hotel is an old (like maybe 80+ years old) that reminds one of pre-World War II business hotels. It is well worn, nothing fancy. I have rated with two stars because it just isn't average when compared with other hotels in the downtown area; but it still charges average rates. There are much nicer places one can find on...

If you want the cheapest hotel in downtown Washington DC and do not need any fancy frills then this is okay for you. My shower was hopeless but deep tub. Electrics looked in need up upgrading. Location is the best for walking around and near the Metro but it sells itself as a "tourist hotel" which means basic, no facilities,... More

Hotel Harrington is nothing fancy, but it was clean and comfortable. The parking is a couple blocks away, but is reasonably priced. What we liked best about the hotel was its location. We were able to walk to the White House, the Capitol and the Smithsonian museums. Most of the hotels in the area cost far more than the Harrington.... More

The best way to enjoy this hotel is to think of it as a "European style" small hotel in a great location. We arrived by using the Metro Rail from Reagan Airport with a 2 block walk. Fare $3.05 each. Many restaurants in the area; the hotel has 3 restaurants which are convenient, but nothing special, if you don't want... More

Old hotel in a great location. We were given a family room which consisted of two room one with a double bed and another with two single beds, each room had a tv and a bathroom. Plenty of plugs and a kettle and fridge in the double bed room. Iron/ironing board also available. We used the laundry there (buy the... More

Centrally situated, this is the best aspect of the Harrington. Close to the metro and all the major sites, it is very conveniently sited. That said, it a hotel in need of serious upgrading. Although clean and comfortable, we felt it was resting on its laurels as an old established hotel, but this is not really enough nowadays unless the... More
