    About this area


    In the historical district and near a metro station, Hotel Harrington is in an area with good shopping. White House and Washington Monument are notable landmarks, and travelers looking to shop may want to visit CityCenterDC and L'Enfant Plaza. Check out an event or a game at Capital One Arena, and consider making time for Smithsonian's National Zoo, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hotel's location for the sightseeing. It's also convenient to public transportation: Center Station is 4 minutes by foot and Federal Triangle Station is 4 minutes.

    Good hotel, but no parking and complementary meal

    Overall Good, but heating system needs to be on more regularly.

    Satisfied and will return again!

    I got just what I expected. An affordable place to stay that was very small but clean. DC is an old town. No one expects updated rooms. There were plenty of 120VAC outlets which was very very handy for CPAP and Electronics etc. The desk was perfect for working and the fridge was plenty cold.

    MAL weekend stay

    Had to get someone to fix old style radiator heater because it was too hot in the room. Front desk did give us a box fan to help. Found one bug but nothing else seemed too bad.

    As one of the oldest hotels in DC, I thought it was in pretty good condition. Everything was super clean, but you can definitely tell the building is old. My window was broken initially, but the staff was very nice and accommodating and switched my room. The pipes are very loud at night though and woke me up a lot. The location is very ideal though if you are looking to see the National Mall or travel on the metro. The nearest metro stop was less than five minutes away.

    The Harrington Hotel is in a fantastic central location when in Washington! Friendly staff and a comfortable room. Also when traveling their laundry facilities come in very handy!
