The location teally cannot be beat and the price (while not cheap...we paid 503.95 for 2 nights) was a relative bargain. The hotel hasn't been updated since the 60's/70's as evidenced by the tired burgundy carpets that prevail thru out. The staff is not helpful and dont even know the street address of their parking garage so forget about mapquesting... More

There is a garage owned by the same company (PMI) that shares a wall w/ Hotel Harrington, but they make you park in one 6 blocks away. We had to walk with all our bags, because the small drop-off curb always had a bus or an a-hole taxi driver taking up the entire space. Also, you pay for your parking... More

This hotel is not just outdated, it's like a time warp into 1972. However, the bathroom was clean and the beds were okay. For one night this is not a bad deal. The location is very good. Heads up that there is no shampoo or conditioner in the room.

Walking distance to all we were able to do in 2 1/2 days! Love the charm. Lots of restaurants close by as well as one on the property. Bring your own toiletries! There is a hair dryer in the room. We stayed in a king room with a window and enjoyed it. Nice bath tub to soak my aching feet... More

Tired, grubby, old hotel. The reception area looks as if it needs a good clean and tidy. Staff fine. Room small and oddly shaped and strange in that next doors bathroom juts into your room and yours into the next one. Price was good compared to others in the area. It is very convenient for getting around sight seeing, we... More

I was hesitant to reserve this property after reading so many mixed reviews, but considering the prices of all other hotels in the are I couldn't pass it up. The staff is wonderful, hotel is clean (yes it's old, but worn doesn't equate to dirty) and parking was a breeze. If you are an average American family traveling on a... More
