I endeavoured to stay at the Harrington Hotel this fall, and I can't say I've ever stayed in a more abyssmal, god forsaken hellhole. I was greeted at the misleadingly auspicious entrance by a trio of obese half wits. Spirits dampened by the combination of this, the grimy gift shop and dysfunctional elevator, I climbed the barren, prison-esque flight of... More

Hotel Harrington has been open since 1914. It has modern conveniences such as free wi-fi in all rooms along with old style charm such as antiquish bathroom fixtures and such. If your looking for luxury, this may not be the place for you. If you want clean and affordable, not to mention conveniently located one block from Pennsylvania Ave between... More

This is a relatively inexpensive hotel for the DC area (possibly the least expensive), but far below the quality that you would get for an equivalently priced hotel outside of the city. The service is okay and rooms are clean. The rooms have an odd layout, limited amenities, and are not in the greatest condition. Water pressure is good but... More

In fairness this hotel is reasonably priced in an expensive city. We paid $160 for the two of us and that included parking. Everything is within walking distance. However, be aware this hotel is 100 years old and in parts it shows. Can't imagine when it last had a facelift. The bathrooms are BASIC. there was no breakfast included, nor... More

Location is everything! This hotel is 100 years old and shows the wear. However, it is clean and the staff is terrific. I took a group of 43 middle, high schoolers and parents for a weekend and we had no issues. We opted for breakfast to be included, it doesn't happen automatically, and it was good. There is a large... More

This was my first time visiting D.C. for four days with some family members. We stayed on the 11th floor in the room enough for five people. The rooms are obviously very dated due to the history of the hotel. The only downside to our room was that the electrical outlets needed updating. Our camera and phone chargers were falling... More

We've stayed here for a week while visiting DC. And the Hotel is on excellent location. It is close to the museums and White house but also to train station. The staff on reception was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very old and it is quite visible on many places but it is quite clean despite the looks... More

Stayed at this family run hotel that has been in the family for 5 generations. It was a little dated but had photos of all the presidents on the wall. The staff were friendly & it was lovely & clean. It was down the road from the whitehouse & the hop on hop off bus for all attractions. There is... More

I have no issue paying a reasonable price for a basic hotel which is well located. The Harrington fits the bill. Our room on the 9th floor was basic but was cojoined to the next. The kids slept in one room and M&D in the other. We had no problems with space with this set up. No issues with cleanliness,... More

This is a great location for tourism or business at a very competitive price. Unsurprisingly the service is not great, the rooms are wanting, and the hotel seems dirty. The biggest problem I had, however, was poor internet. i was forced to work in the hotel lobby because the internet in the rooms did not work - which went on... More
