Fair 4.0
I won’t be back
Chose that hotel only due to location/price, but knowing now that Washington has such a good public transport I would stay a bit further away, Definitively you would get more for your money. Run down hotel, need renovation urgently. Unfriendly staff. Good points are location and cleanliness.

Fantastic location
It is an old hotel. It has be adequate in its maintenance but nothing more. Its location is perfect but expect absolutely no frills. It is clean and the staff was nice.
Katharine, ie1 night business trip
Very Good 8.0
Hotel is an excellent location and reasonably priced. Had been concerned about reviews about the food in the restaurant for breakfast - didn't have any issues re same given the level of pricing charged for the breakfast. Skirting boards in room could do with a good dusting though this didn't impact on our stay because the room was otherwise clean. Would stay there again if I was back in the city.

Downtown Washington DC
The staff was nice and courteous. They don't have parking you have to park on the street for overnight parking or walk two blocks to a public garage. There is a couple bars make it very loud all night long. It is the city though. All in all it was nice affordable place to stay in Heart of the City

Great location and i enjoyed my stay but it's a older hotel and the room wasn't the cleanest.

Very good value
We enjoyed our stay at the Harrington. The room(s) for our family of five was great and was a pleasant surprise since the website photos show a different room. The hotel is very old and dated but the room felt clean and beds were comfortable. Overall the hotel has a very historic feel to it and if you don’t need a lot of amenities, the Harrington is a very good value. The location was great for us because of proximity to the National Mall and museums. Two Metro stations within about two blocks.

Budget older hotel convenient to everything
This hotel is old and not fancy at all. That said, the staff were terrific, the room was spacious (picked a 'twin' room when booking which turned out to be two queens). The bathroom is small-ish and the shower was either super hot or super cold so I danced around a bit to get clean. The price is very affordable and you are only two blocks from the National Mall. The neighborhood is very safe and within walking distance to everything.Just keep in mind this is an older hotel that has not had updates done, yet it is not horrible for the price and proximity to everything.
