This was a perfect location for our visit of DC! We walked to Ford's Theater, Smithsonian, and the Washington Monument. Parking was in a garage not far from the hotel. The room was very clean and perfect for our family.

The reviews mostly say that this hotel is shabby and dated, but clean and affordable for its location. It most definitely is shabby and dated. Indeed, it's hard to see how it could be brought up to a modern standard (e.g. by adding A/C) without demolishing the interior altogether. The heating was some sort of radiators under stained metal radiator... More

This was our second stay at the Hotel Harrington with a group of students. The hotel is perfect for this. The location is so central - this meant we could walk to the key sites without need of the metro. The rooms are a mix of sizes - again great for a school group. Other reviews comment on the hotel...

This hotel is in the perfect location. On entry you may think what have we come too! But, when you get to your room they are very spacious & extremly clean. We had clean sheets & towels every day. The staff were so friendly & helpful. The little restaurant sells the best steak & eggs! I most definitely will return.... More

Lovely family run hotel in a good central location. We arrive by car and park outside to unload our bags. Hotel doesn't have a car park but arrange parking a block away at a good price (5minute walk) friendly staff and prompt checkin. On arrival in the foyer we are hit by a very strong smell not sure what it... More

Great Location. Walking distance to everything you want to see on the Mall in Washington DC. Lots of Charm for a 100 year old hotel. Remember it is a 100 year old hotel. Old pipes, old décor. Great price for the location. We stayed in a family suite which was 2 rooms with an adjourning door between the two of... More

The location was fantastic. We walked almost everyone - from the train station, to the museums, to Fords Theatre, to restaurants, and shopping. Can't beat the location. The hotel itself is old and it shows its age. We stayed there because of the location and because we could get three beds in one room, which was great, and not easy... More

Cheap and a good location but it feels like an old, cheap European hotel. Needs to be cleaned and refurbished. Had to open the window as there was no adjustment for the heat and it was about 100 when I arrived. Many better options in the area. At least there is a good bar off the lobby

I booked a brief stay to try this on the recommendation of a friend. While the location is absolutely tops, here are other considerations: 1. Very old facility, showing its wear and tear on the facade, the lobby, the halls, the room walls, and furnishings. 2. Other than slim soap bars, no toiletries are provided. 3. No hair dryer in...
