This is a classic hotel with pictures of celebrities who have stayed there ranging from the Kennedy clan to the Beatles. We were there for 10 days on the 8th floor. Two very small elevators service the enormous wing where our room was and one of the elevators was out of service the entire time--lots of waiting in the hall... More

Whenever I attended a conference at the large conference hotel across the way (every two years or so) I stay here instead. This hotel has so much character, and is a well maintained historical property. One this trip I reserved a queen beds suite-- what a wonderful space!

One of two elevators in West Wing was not working throughout stay, and there was no notice of this posted. This caused considerable back-up since I was staying there for a three-day conference. Computer system caused check-out delay, and final bill has not yet yet arrived.

Omni Shoreham at Woodly Park DC is an exceptional property for business or pleasure. If you can think of it on an overnight stay, they provide it for you.

This was a great hotel with a lot of history. Very Clean, good staff and great location ! A little pricey but it was peak season for Spring breakers ! It was within walking distance to a few restaurants that were good and very close to the airport yet close to museum also. Never had to get on to freeway.
