We stayed at the Harrington for two weeks in June, visiting Washington as tourists. It's an old hotel, updated over the decades but not restored. There's a well-done display of the hotel's history in a corridor off the lobby, plus three restaurants and an inexpensive gift shop. The location is absolutely excellent for tourists, two blocks from a multi-line Metro station (Metro Center), an easy walk to a dozen coffee shops and restaurants, and within walking distance of most of Washington's museums, galleries and monuments. It's also tourist-priced; we saved about $75 a night compared with mid-priced chain hotels. Internet was fine in the mornings but iffy in the evenings; probably a lot of guests live-streaming. Our bathroom had lumpy plaster, cracked tiles and sloppy painting and you had to lift the bathroom door to close it. But the beds were quite comfortable, the showers were hot, and our room was clean and quiet. If this hotel is ever restored, the price will soar. Meanwhile, it's a great bargain if you don't mind the esthetics. Lots of families and groups of students staying there. We'd stay again.

Near focal points of interest. The resturants are aweful and very tacky. Very dated.

This is the least expensive hotel in the best location for tourists in Washington DC. Nothing fancy at all but the price is right! Parking available and less expensive than other hotels. Many restaurants in the same block. Walk everywhere.

Very convenient location. Many interesting restaurants nearby. Lobby is pretty tired, carpet looks very well used. Harriet's restaurant next door had a breakfast buffet that was a good value, IMO. Bathroom plumbing needed some attention (and shared with cleaning service staff before checking out). Furniture in the room was dated but functional.
