I usually prefer to stay in modern hotels, but we booked our family holiday to the USA via a travel agent who was well versed in our interests. She suggested this hotel and I assumed that we would not be impressed. However I must say there is something grand and Kennedy-ish about this hotel; even though its decor is not... More

Not sure why this place gets such a high percentage of "excellent" ratings. For our family stay, it seemed a little dated: older lobby, dated furnishings, room showed some wear and tear, especially the balcony area. It looked like a work horse hotel for large conventions. Our son, however, LOVED the outdoor heated pool and hot tub which was open... More

I stayed here for a large professional meeting over Labor Day week-end. The hotel is impressive looking and in a great location -- easy walks to nice restaurants, lively area, near the zoo. Room was smallish (could use more workspace) but comfortable and extremely quiet. My room was on the first floor. I hate taking an elevator for just one... More

I stayed here for a conference, and really enjoyed it. It is an old hotel, and the rooms show it in some details. The place is very well maintained. The rooms are on the large side, have extremely comfortable king beds, and there is lots of hot water available in the showers. My room was on the seventh floor and... More

This Omni Shoreham is a very good hotel for working, visiting, and relaxing in Washington D.C. The hotel is located in the Woodley Park Northwest Section of Washington, D.C. The Woodley Park Metro stop (Red Line) is approximately 2 blocks from the Metro right off Calvert Street. (When you exit the Metro either go to the right and go down... More

Great place that brings back the charm and class of a 1930/40's era hotel. The property is huge. Attended a conference there, which the hotel hosted it well. I would have given it a 5/5, but my room smelled a little like cigarettes, and parking is pricy, at $40/day. It had the feel of a place where someone would always... More

No problems. Served purpose of our conference (Preventive Medicine Board Review). Great location for walking distance to restaurants, a few fast foods, a drug store, and Metro (Subway). Slight longer walk to the Zoo. For several mile walking trip, you can walk past all the embassies. Take fluids along, as no place to eat, drink or restaurants on embassy row.

The room was super nice. The closet was huge! The shower was nice. AC worked great. There wasnt much of a view, but that wasnt awful because I wasnt in the room much. If I head back to DC for business, this a great place to stay. Also, the rooms were pretty large, so they would probably good place for... More

We stayed at the Liaison for 2 nights, then transferred to the Omni. First, dont be afraid of switching it up because taxi rides in d.c. are relatively inexpensive. I prefer variety on trips to experience more locations and offerings. I chose both of these frankly for the pool and their proximity to the old trolley tour stops. I chose... More
