6/10 Good

Disappointing, but with a saving grace!
I was very disappointed by the condition of my room, and its miniscule size. While less expensive than some options, it wasn't exactly cheap. Yet there was paint peeling off doors, peeling wallpaper, mildew in the shower and the toilet would often not shut off, wasting gallons of water until manipulation of the handle finally did the trick. Also, no hangers in the closet, and I had business clothes that really needed to be hung. However, I got wonderful service after checking out. I'd left my laptop charger in the room. They tracked it, and were able to return it to me later that day. I'm very grateful for that service.

Great location, deplorable hotel
The hotel is in a great location, that is the only good thing about it. The beds are uncomfortable and noisy, electrical wires are exposed all around the room, conversations from guests in adjacent rooms can be heard through the walls, air conditioner did not work, even the lobby was smelly. The overall conditions of the bathroom and our room were deplorable. Hotel Harrington is in need of some much needed renovations.

The building is over 100 years old. The room is dated. The telephone was not working, but it got fixed. The blind in bathroom was broken.

No Go Harrington
This Hotel is shabby, not real clean, and customer service was neglible. The Harrington needs a complete renovation.

This place is really of a dump. It has not been updated in years. The lobby rug is disgustingly dirty and worn

I would recommend
I would recommend based on location alone lots of restaurants and close to the monuments. I personally went with family and a friend so it was fine but I wouldn't recommend if it's a couples trip. Everything is very much dated. I stayed in the room of which it has 3 beds more than enough space in the room for everyone to feel comfortable but had 0 view of anything but the building beside is. So no real sunlight so i had to keep the lamps on to just have some brightness in the room

Charming DC Hotel
Charming downtown DC hotel. Be prepared that this is a non renovated hotel and part of staying here is for the experience and not for the creature comforts. Staff was friendly and very helpful.
