We've been to D.C. many many many times -except for once we've stayed right at Hotel Harrington. Everything is right THERE for you. Step out of the hotels doors and take a right, with 15 seconds you are at the corner and ON Constitution Ave. If you take a left within 2-3 minutes you are at the Metro and can...

I can't describe it is an above-average hotel and yet I really recommend it and will stay again. It may seem contradictory, but let me explain. Everything is just slightly worn and dated, woodwork is over-overpainted, a little paint on some shower tiles was peeled off, and a lot of tour-bus travelers seem to stay here, so there is some...

After reading some of the reviews, we were really nervous. But we went prepared. You must understand this is a historic hotel so you will not have USB plugins and ton of space. We were one the 7th floor and did not encounter any bad smells or anything yucky. We had reserved the Family plus size room for 7 days....

We've stayed at the Harrington four times in the last four years and find it to be the perfect location. Just 2 blocks from Metro Station we bought the week long short pass and stayed the entire week only using public transit. If you are coming to see the history in DC this is the place to stay. The Harrington...

This hotel is OLD but the location just can't be beat. It's within easy walking distance to most everything on the Mall and the Metro is just 1 block away. The rooms were cheap, clean, and small and the beds are good. We only used it as a place to sleep while our group of 20 students toured the city....

The location is just a half block from Trump Hotel Centrally located in DC. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Room rates are very reasonable would 100% stay there again & refer to friends. This historic hotel has been there for over 100 years. A clean & comfortable place. Enjoy your stay:)

I just returned from my stay at the Hotel Harrington, rm.1133, where I joined 2 acquaintances to March on Washington. I immediately checked for bedbugs, since this is an old budget hotel. NONE. The staff was courteous and welcoming. Quiet, clean, spacious room. Excellent, safe neighborhood, close to White House. Ask for high floor. No frills but great value!
