  • Earlier this summer I took a business trip to Washington, DC, and my organization set up accomodations for my group at the Hotel Harrington, which was supposed to be comfortable accomodations in a convenient location
  • The staff was less than courteous, although I think they must have just been embarrased to be working at such a dump

      Earlier this summer I took a business trip to Washington, DC, and my organization set up accomodations for my group at the Hotel Harrington, which was supposed to be comfortable accomodations in a convenient location. While the location, at the corner of 11th and E streets, was convenient and close to events, the accomodations were disgusting.

      When I arrived in my room, the sheets were dirty, the towels were thin


      and scratchy, and I opened my curtains to find that I had a view of a large sewer pipe.

      The rooms themselves were tiny, they couldn’t have been over 12 x 15.

      The “bathroom” was nothing more than a broom closet with a toilet, shower, and sink shoved into it.

      The staff was less than courteous, although I think they must have just been embarrased to be working at such ...


      • a dump.

        I think that it’s possible that the Hotel Harrington was perhaps a really nice place at one time - 30 years ago.

        But apparently the owner doesn’t want to keep the place up.

        The rates for 2 double beds are $109 per night though, so it seems like they could schedule a little renovation.

        If you are planning a trip to DC on a budget, howeer, and luxury

        is no consideration, you can find rates for other rooms, maps, and additional information at the hotel’s website, hotel-harrington.

        com.

        You can also call 1-800-424-8532 or email [email protected]

        com.

        Please keep in mind, however, to turn off your computer’s speakers if you decide to visit the website.

        If you do not, you will be blasted with a terrifying MIDI rendition of “Hail to the Chief” that is just as unbearable as the hotel itself.
