Semi Close to everything in Washington DC, its a good little hotel for the money. The rooms need a bit of updating, but it offered decent restaurants nearby and the rooms were comfortable enough for a good night's sleep. If you are looking for an economical way to see Washington DC, this is the hotel for you. If you want luxury, pick another hotel. You won't be sorry if you are not high maintenance when staying here.

Great place to stay for a reasonable price. D.C. is expensive enough without an expensive hotel. Close to Museums, Monuments, Federal Buildings and Ella's Wood fired pizza, the best pizza in D.C. with great pizza, great salad and great service.

Room Tip: room 108 was a little loud with the street and elevator noise, but the a/c was still cold on the hottest days of the year!

This hotel is few months shy of clebrating it's 100th birthday. It's basically a no frills hotel that caters to large families and student groups. If ultra modern furniture and little shampoo bottles on the counter are important to you then pick another hotel. Harrington is at E and 11th and is perfectly positioned. My family of 5 booked early and received a room for $205/ni, including taxes. It was three mini hotel rooms that had been opened up into each other. Room 926 (i think that's right) is a corner room with 1 queen bed and THREE single beds. OUr three girls loved having their own areas. It also had three full bathroom and 3 tvs. Mini fridge is standard. There were students in the building - we saw them in the lobby - but never heard any from our room. The place is clean - but showing it's age. the linens and towels were spot free but they showed age. the tub drained slowly and there was some funky stuff growing on the shower head in one bath but it certainly didn't out weigh the positives. the desk staff were helpful (happily handed to us extra pillows, gave directions, etc) and the restaurant downstairs convienant. Would I stay there again? If it were just my husband and me....maybe I'd upgrade a little. If I were with the kids then Harrington is the only way I could afford a weeklong trip in DC.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room

Hotel Harrington is in a great location downtown DC. Walking distance to restaurants, museums, and one block from the tourist trolley stop #1. It was very convenient! The rooms are old, but clean. TV worked but fuzzy, no outlets in the bathrooms. No outlets next to mirrors. Still a great room for the price and location. We will definitely stay again.

We were in Washington for 4 nights with our grandchildren, a boy and a girl, ages 6 and 9. We chose this hotel because it was centrally located and had a two-room "deluxe" family unit. The staff was friendly.

The temperature in Washington was in the mid to upper 90s. The air-conditioning worked very poorly. There was only one little vent in each room over the door leading into the entry hallway and apparently did not have a blower connected because the only somewhat cool air you could feel was when you stood right in front of the door. The only thing cool in the room was the fridge.

This is a very old hotel, 100 years old in 2014. The rooms are small, the bathrooms haven't been modernized in many years, and the lighting was poor. The diverter in the shower in the "master" bath in the unit barely worked so most of the water came out of the faucet instead of the shower head. As a result, I was standing ankle deep in water by the time I finished my shower. There was no towel bar in the other bathroom so the kids had to hang their towels on a hook. The closet had no rod, just a row of hooks so you had to hang your clothes sideways.

We stayed just one night and then transferred to another hotel that was a palace by comparison. The staff did not give us any problem about checking out even though we had booked 4 nights.
