I stayed at the Omni on October 27 with my sister. It's is a really big hotel with a very kind staff. Overll, we were pleased with our stay. The hotel's location is superb with a subway station right around the corner. The staff was welcoming and friendly.
I have two problems with this hotel.
First, there was something wrong with the heating. The heating would make our room either a sauna or a freezer. We were only staying one night so we didn't bother to call the reception and ask for another room, perhaps they would have tried to help us. I'm just writing this because at a 5 stars hotel you expect the heating to work flawless.
Another problem was the valet parking fee. We drove to this hotel and used their valet parking service, which is $33 + plus tax for a night. Here is the thing, DC has a huge parking problem, so valet parking is very important there. But I still think it's weird for a 5 stars hotel to charge its customers $33 for parking. I would understand if they charge other people who are not currently staying at the hotel, but parking fee for the current customers to me is greedy. I live in New York, and I travel a lot to Boston, Rochester, London, Istanbul, Paris, Rome etc and DC's hotels are the only ones with this weird parking fee policy. And I'm only talking about 5 stars hotel. I mean they may have outrageous room rates, but parking is generally a customer perk.
