The only thing this hotel has going for it is its location!. Upon entering the hotel foyer to check in we were completely ignored by the front desk staff who eventually acknowledged us by saying "yes", absolutely no customer service skills at all. Our room was tiny, dated and dusty. We wore clothes to bed as the sheets seemed limp...

The hotel is old and the rooms are small but being located in the very centre of Washington DC you are not likely to be spending too much time in your room. The staff were friendly and most helpful and is the best value hotel in the best location. Food is fine for breakfast and if you do not want...

I stayed here for one night to attend a concert at the Verizon Center which is within walking distance. There were also lots of restaurants within walking distance. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and a good size, and it didn't cost an arm and a leg. I would definitely recommend this hotel. One thing I...

If you're in DC to sightsee, you won't be spending much time in your room so this hotel is fine. The location is great, beds comfortable and the a/c works. If they spent some money and renovated the lobby I think that would go a long way toward creating a better first impression. That being said, I would stay here...

This hotel is in the heart of the city and walking to anywhere is great. The hotel staff at reception were superb, friendly, welcoming and happy to please. We were a group of over 20 staying for several days and we enjoyed every day. Excellent meals/drinks at Harry's and yes, we would stay again.

I loved staying at this old hotel! It's over 100 years old, such history and character!! If you stay here, don't miss meandering down the hall to the left of the reservations desk where significant historic events are recorded on the wall detailing from the time the hotel opened through to the present. There's also nifty little display case in...

I agree with other people's review that Hotel Harrington is old, but i have to say that we didn't mind it a bit. Yes the hotel is old and tired, but it has it's own appeal and character. It is definitely not a luxury hotel, but i dont need a luxury hotel when you are basically out the whole day....

This is an old hotel in a great location. There has been renovation but it could be better. The place is clean and comfortable but certainly not first rate. No way to control heat or A/C as it is centrally controlled. The nightly rate is very reasonable for the area, thus the reason they exist I suppose. Above Harriets Restaurant...

While the position of this hotel was great the hotel was run down and weary. The staff in the restaurant were amazing but the rest, well. Our room did not have wifi so 4 moves later we were installed on the 8 th floor. Unfortunately to get there we had to use the service lift at the back of the...

Room sizes vary in our group. Some very small, some very large, some in between. Very basic accomodation but very clean & convenient location. Walking distance to White House and museums. Serviced daily.
