Hotel Policies

Words cannot express how much we value guests who respect our property and policies. To maintain the integrity of our business and to comply with government regulations, fire codes and insurance standards there are vital policies that we must enforce. Violations will result in a $250 charge to room rate, reservation will be cancelled and no refund will be issued.

Hotel Harrington is a non-smoking property and all guest rooms are non-smoking. Candles, incense, oils, grills, burners, and open flames of any kind are prohibited. Evidence of smoking residue and odors anywhere in room, including doorways, windows and bathrooms, and/or tampering with smoke alarm systems will result in fine. Policy includes e-cigarettes and vaping.

No pets of any kind are allowed.

Cooking is allowed in the provided microwave only. Fire and insurance regulations prohibit the use of small appliances in guestroom. No small cooking appliances, such as percolators, crock-pots or electric burners, are permitted.
The microwave is a high heat cooking device that requires caution and care when using. Properly operating microwave to prevent explosions, injuries and fires is of utmost importance. Oven misuse may activate emergency systems, may ruin microwaves and may burn skin. Additional fees will be charged to your account for replacement of microwave and any damages caused by misuse. Food preparation or actions that create odors that are pungent, unhealthy, objectionable or deemed difficult to remove from the air, carpet, walls and furniture are prohibited. Cleaning fee may be assessed.

Maximum occupancy is determined by fire codes, insurance regulations and health guidelines. Published rates are nightly, for double occupancy (2 people). NUMBER OF PEOPLE occupying room, (including children), must be claimed at the time of booking or registered at check-in. An EXTRA-PERSON FEE (EPF) is charged for each guests beyond double occupancy, not to exceed room’s sleeping capacity (maximum occupancy).

EPF is $10 per person (including children over 5-years of age), per night. Failure to register and pay for all people in your room is considered fraud and theft of services. Use of facility is monitored by staff and security system. If it is apparent that the number of people occupying your room is more than claimed, the EPF will be charged to the credit card on file. If number of people exceeds maximum occupancy, you will be asked to rent another room (if available) or to leave hotel with no refund given. 

VISITORS, PARTIES and ROOM USE LIMITATIONS: Due to COVID-19 regulations, only registered guests only may enter the hotel building and rooms; Guests who would like to meet with visitors (non-registered guests) must notify the front desk and register visitors. At no time should room key be given to an unregistered guest to utilize sleeping room or other parts of the facility. Unauthorized visitors in rooms (especially when maximum occupancy is exceeded) will result in cancellation of reservation; and guest will be asked to leave with no refund given. Guests who wish to meet with visitors should check with management about availability of public meeting space.

Rooms are rented as sleeping rooms and not as hospitality suites. Parties cannot be held in sleeping rooms and maximum occupancy cannot be exceeded. Rooms cannot be used for beauty services of any kind and outside vendors are not permitted to utilize guest rooms for their services. Guest contract with vendor is not a contract with hotel.

Guest’s safety and the security of guest’s personal property are of highest concern to us. Please help us in maintaining safety and security by not propping open exit doors, leaving room windows open, allowing unregistered guests access to the facility, or giving your key to non-registered visitors. Respect your neighboring guests by not being unreasonably loud or disruptive. Quiet hours are from 10pm – 8am. TVs, voices and other devices must be kept at a respectful level; doors opened and closed quietly; no congregating or running in halls. In addition, notify the management immediately if you notice or smell anything suspicious or of an alarming nature!

Guests may check in between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. Early arrivals are not guaranteed; if you need to occupy the room before 4 p.m., a two-night reservation is needed (i.e., the night before arrival). Arrangements to enter the building when checking in after 10 p.m. must be made in advance. Failure to arrive by 10 p.m. (without late arrival arrangements) will result in a no show charge and reservation will be cancelled.

Cancellation policies vary depending on the type of room and amenities and are confirmed by email following booking. No refunds are issued for “Acts of God” that may occur during your stay, including, but not limited to, public utility failure, severe weather, pandemics or personal emergencies.
