“Old charm, superb staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Staying at this hotel is like staying in a hotel from the "Mad Men" days. It's my favorite hotel in DC. The rooms need to be updated. But always clean and housekeeping staff goes out of its way, especially if you are a select member. The breakfast and buffet at Robert's Restaurant is not to be missed. The Marquee Lounge staff and door staff make this place 5 star, despite the need for room updating.

What an awesome hotel. Had a conference there and they definitely made the stay a great one. The meeting rooms were very good. The hotel staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Took care of any concerns and went out of their way to make sure the stay was pleasant. Was pleased with the entire stay. Great hotel!

The good thing to say about this hotel is that it has comfortable beds. Roo clean but washed out colours that extended throght the public spaces. It is like going bak to the '70s. It is urgent need of renovation. As for the food, well one gets big portions but the taste is poor. A lot of effort appears to go into peculiar combinations of seasoning that contain a lot of sugar. More attention should be paid the quality and cooking of the meat. I suggest the chef uses a timer .A local diner, 50 metres away across the road, has better food, but lacks linen. At $260 per night it is expensive

OmniMgr, Manager at Omni Shoreham Hotel, responded to this review, November 22, 2013
Thank you for sharing all of your comments. We just concluded a complete renovation of our public areas and meeting space and I regret to read that it wasn't done to your liking. Our hope was to give the hotel a fresh new look while maintaining the classic look that would embrace the character of our historic hotel. I do appreciate that you also took the time to share feedback regarding your meals with us and I will share those comments with our chef. We are always tweaking our menu offerings and hope that if you return we will have something available to suit your tastes. Guest feedback is our best gauge of how we are doing and I am grateful that you took the time to share with us. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back again soon.

Sincerely,

Nicole Holmes
Loyalty Manager

This was the fourth time I stayed at the Omni Shoreham in DC. I love the location, not too busy, but enough to do within walking distance. The staff is always friendly and courteous. The amenities are great, especially if you join the loyalty club. The banquet and conferences staff are absolutely amazing - you couldn't tell you're one of hundreds with their personalization of services.

This hotel provides a good location (near a metro stop and several good dining options) and top notch amenities (fitness center, in-room coffee, etc...) but it is a little pricy. Not for the budget minded traveler.

If you have the opportunity (and the funds) to stay at the historic Omni Shoreham Hotel, near the Woodley Park (and National Zoo) metro, pick up the phone now and make your reservation! You will not be disappointed! The rooms are beautiful. The staff are knowledgable, professional, and kind. The hotel lobby and common areas are plush! It's no wonder that Frank Sinatra and the Beatles stayed here! :) There's lots to do in the area, with lots of various restaurants offering cuisine from around the world. I hope you get to experience this. It ruins you for any other hotel you in which you have to stay! ENJOY!
