“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

The omni is a beautiful hotel, inside and out. Great location, helpful staff, clean rooms with a very comfortable bed. We really enjoyed our stay. Hotel restaurants are high priced, but there are restaurants of every kind within a block of the motel. We're looking forward to staying at the Omni again next spring

I go this hotel at least once every couple of months; so i am certainly a fan. although i do have to admit that i was a bit taken aback my last visit; the fire alarm went off 2 times during the night and the late night room service messed up my order (which is pretty unusual for this place so really not a big deal). the best part about this place is the area its located in; it is just 5 minute (if that) walk to the metro and is pretty close to the national zoo (which is awesome) and some good restaurants (Open City, Taste of india, Thai taste, Medaterra and Chen's Chinese are pretty good) . The staff at the Shoreham is always spectacular and are consistent in providing great service when you need it. It is a bit pricey but the location and service makes it certainly worth it.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms close to the elevator and the housekeeping rooms and it tends to get a bit loud...

Another trip to Washington allowed me to stay at the Omni Shoreham. I found the same great service from every staff person I encountered. They really focus on providing a great experience...and didn't disappoint. From the minute I walked through the door I was greeted and made to feel valued and special. Check in was a breeze; they accommodated my request for a quiet room, which was spacious and had wonderful views from the bay window and even the bathroom! Robert's Restaurant for breakfast was great. Service and food for the functions I attended were stellar. Close to many fabulous restaurants and the zoo, this is a great place to lay your head!

My husband was attending a conference here at the hotel, and we were put in one of the Gardenview rooms. The view out of the window was gorgeous! We ordered room service many times throughout our stay and felt that it was the best we have had in a long time. The staff was always extremely accomodating and curteous and the concierge spent a long time assisting me to plan daytrips while my husband was busy. The first night we slept great (very comfortable beds and clean space); however, on the second and third nights, we struggled to get any sleep at all due to noisy neighbors. It was clear the the family next door was not trying to be unusually obnoxious, but the walls were so thin, we could nearly hear all of their conversations throughout the night... the noise was so loud that I was still being woken up after I put ear plugs in. It really surprised me that a hotel of this quality would have such weak noise insultation between rooms. I called the hotel front desk, and they were very kind about it and offered to call the family. Unfortunately, the problem was never really resolved (the level of noise persisted) throughout our stay and made for a bit of a miserable time for my husband and I who missed out on a couple of good nights rest. We were impressed with how the staff graciously handled it when we mentioned the problem to them, but I would not recommend getting a room in the Gardenview portion of the hotel.

Loved this hotel, have stayed here before. Very nice property with some minor upgrades needed. Restaurants excellent. Service was awesome. Right by Woodley Park Metro. Be sure you join their rewards program to take advantage of extra amenities.

The Omni Shoreham is a wonderful piece of history in Washington, DC. Beautiful hotel in a great location within easy walking distance of the zoo. The staff was extremely cordial and accommodating. A great hotel for families- especially the zoo package. Best breakfast buffet ever! Gorgeous pool and grounds.
We will definitely stay here the next time we visit DC.

Second stay and had another great stay. The hotel is only about 1 block from Woodly Park metro. There are lots of restaurants around and the zoo is near by. The hotel is beautiful. Some of the furniture should use a little old english. The staff is friendly and room was nice and big. Can't wait to plan another stay this summer.
