As welcoming as always, the Omni Shoreham Hotel never disappoints. This elegant old world hotel, right in the middle of the Dupont Circle/ National Zoo area is upscale and down to earth at the same time. Perfect for families as well as conventioneers. The common spaces are stunning, the open dining area is beautiful, and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. When traveling with grandkids, they were treated in their room to a backpack filled with crayons, paper and projects, and at bedtime, chocolate chip cookies and milk arrived to their surprise and delight! When I've stayed in warmer months, the pool was a welcome respite for my family. One of my favorite hotels anywhere!
