“Clean, convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Room was large, clean, comfortable and well appointed. I'm not a fan of the giant , mall-like atmosphere of the hotel and the lobby area but appreciated the amenities and overall comfort level of the room. Conveniently located close to a metro and you can easily walk to Adams Morgan for access to restaurants and bars from the hotel (as long as you don't mind about a 15 minute walk). Again, while not personally a fan of the property's general layout and design, I would stay here again as the rooms are clean and comfortable.

Hotel has a large beautiful lobby. Lots of pictures and history displayed in the hotel. Very beautiful grounds with a wedding during our stay. Lots of meeting rooms for business or other gatherings. Room was a little stale and had a small bathroom but clean. Would stay again.

I have not yet stayed at the Omni Shoreham and am due to check in tomorrow. However, I am sitting at my desk looking at other options for my stay. My online check-in was unsuccessful and I called the 800 number for assistance. Incredibly rude, so I called the hotel directly. If Mary, on the 800 call was rude, there are no to words to describe the rudeness of the woman at the front desk at this hotel. I am still not certain if we have been checked in, but I'm betting against it! As a very frequent traveler, I have to say that this was the worst first impression I have experienced at any hotel! If we do decide to stay at the Omni, I hope my first impression was wrong!!!

Stayed at the Omni Shoreham for a weekend get away in late October. Hotel was away from the hustle and bustle of the city; however, was close enough via the subway to be just perfect. Hotel was only a few blocks from the Zoo, about a 5 minute walk to a subway stop and then less than a 10 minute subway ride to the center of DC. Hotel is older but has so much history, the lobby is filled with poster detailing special events that have been held at the hotel and famous folks who have stayed there. The only negative, was the size of the bathroom in our room, very small but clean. One suggestion if you are a breakfast person, purchase a package that includes the breakfast buffet, it is amazing. We stay their again.

Only stayed the one night for a football game but received a very warm welcome in a huge reception area very well decked out in Christmas decorations. Never seen so many Christmas trees. Staff are universally excellent - concierge very helpful in getting me sorted out. Metro very convenient for trips around, White house only two stops away. Room decoration was a bit dated but very clean. Certainly would go back.

A beautiful hotel in a charming part of DC. The hotel has a rich history, with posters around the lobby chronicling the large number of famous folks who frequented the hotel in years past. The room was well-appointed, though the bed wasn't the most comfortable I've seen. In contrast to what most hotel chains offer, there we only two pillows for a king bed. Wrth the stay.

This hotel is very grand, but the staff are friendly and efficient, not at all stuffy.
The rooms were very comfortable, but showing their age. The included breakfast buffet was very good, including fresh waffles, omlettes, etc.
The location was excellent - very close to a range of restaurants, the Metro, the bus, a Trolley stop. It is walking distance to the zoo, which is a great place to spend some time relaxing.
The lifts were a problem - they were small and there weren't sufficient to efficiently service the number of rooms, so accessing our room took some time at peak periods.

Room Tip: I would suggest joining their free member program for added benefits (eg. morning beverage delivered...
