I had occasion to stay at the Omni during the first week of April for a conference that took place in the hotel. I brought my teenage son with me for the trip during Cherry Blossom Week so that we could take in some of the museums during my trip. The hotel accommodations were wonderful, and the hotel staff couldn't have been better or nicer. Dolly, our housekeeper, was adorable - she even let us tour The Ghost Suite, which was right next door to our room 871 in the Main Building. She took really good care of us, and gently chided my son for sleeping the days away preventing her from cleaning our room when she needed to. It was pleasant banter, and made our stay seem more like being at home. Our beds were extremely comfortable, and we liked being able to open our windows for fresh air. The bathrooms are small, but adequate and the amenities were good. Two of the 5 nights we stayed there, we were unable to access the movie channel, which sucked. The hotel is also dog-friendly, which had we known, we would have brought our dog along. The food was excellent, except for some asian vegetable dish that was ghastly. The conference was wonderful - one of the best I'd been to - the meeting rooms were absolutely stunning - a great place for any special occasion. The location was good - close to the Metro, and various tour stops. There are some nice restaurants within a block that were good if you wanted to get out of the hotel - I recommend Mediterano and the little cafe at the corner (great desserts!). I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to the DC area for business or pleasure. The only downside of our trip was the traffic getting to and from the Mall or other tourist destinations - we were there during Cherry Blossom Week, and it was so crowded, one could only imagine what it was like during the inauguration. I wouldn't come again at this time of year, especially if you dislike crowds.
