A review of Hotel Harrington must take into account individual tastes. The building is old and it definitely shows. I wanted a clean warm bed, a clean warm shower with good water pressure and an easy walk to the Smithsonian, Washington Monument etc. I got exactly what I wanted plus extremely welcome help with check-in when I arrived early but tired after a long flight.

Great location! Our room was a bit 'frayed around the edges', but thats to be expected given the age of the building.
