2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Let me begin by saying, the Omni Shoreham is beautiful property, in a very convenient location to metro line. Such easy access to all major city destinations. Aside from these attributes, I was disappointed for the first time in an Omni property. I felt as if staff was courteous, but nothing exceptional. The housekeeping was horrific. Never have I placed... More

This is an historic hotel with large rooms which is rare for older hotels. I've stayed at this hotel many times and always enjoy it. The staff is extremely friendly, the room clean and the food good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the DC area.

We had a great time at the Omni Shoreham. The room was elegant, the hotel had great amenities, and the grounds are beautiful. Outdoor pool and jacuzzi, fitness center, hammocks to relax in, fire pit to sit around in the evening! Hotel is in walking distance to the national zoo and many delicious restaurants. We took advantage of the splash... More

My brothers and I met in D.C. for a quick family holiday. Our children range in ages from 7 -14 years old. Everyone had a fantastic time and we all LOVED the Shoreham! The check in staff were very accommodating and gladly gave one of us our room early as we had to change flights at the last minute and... More

Pretty Hotel. Historical Rooms. Small bathroom. No counters to put medicines or makeup on. Lovely lobby. We were able to meet and talk often. The elevators were too small and too few. Check-in went very smoothly and the staff were very friendly.

The rooms were very clean, and the hotel overall was beautiful and in a very nice quiet area of the city (Woodley Park). The metro station is within two blocks of the hotel (3 stops to metro center) and the zoo is a short 10-15 minute walk away. Parking is not included and runs about $41 a night, but we... More

I typically stay at smaller, boutique hotels when I'm in DC and generally prefer newer, more modern hotels, so I was a bit hesitant about staying at the classic Omni Shoreham. The moment I got there, though, all that changed. You immediately get the sense that you're in a place with a long, illustrious history but one that has kept... More

Hotel is in great location and very old-fashion, but elegant. Parking is a bear. But it is right on metro-rail line. The pool is a great place to wind down after taking in National Mall activities. Service is also great and rooms have comfortable beds. If your in to spa and fitness center, you'll enjoy these options as well.

I stayed July 22-24. The staff was very gracious and promptly resolved a couple of issues. I called for help with a broken air conditioner and they fixed it within a couple of hours. A very comfortable bed! The food at the conference was fantastic. The location is awesome, within walking distance of the zoo and metro stops. I will... More
