“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

I stayed in this hotel during the IHTC14 conference. Clean and comfortable, with free wifi access in the rooms. Rooms are spacious with a big walk-in closet. Restaurant on the ground floor has excellent food. There is also a mini-Starbucks on the ground floor, which came in handy! Conference facilities was excellent.

There was nothing about my stay here that was not outstanding. Right from the location to the staff, it was all just outstanding. Perfect service all throughout, the staff were very friendly & helpful.

The room was brilliant, it was clean, the beds were really good and also the size of the room was a big positive. Another good thing about the room was the view, it was lovely.

The hotel may be far from the main city, but thats actually a good thing! Metro was very close so that helped out going into downtown DC.

There are many restaurants of all kinds of cuisines near by the hotel, enjoyed that.

The concierge in particular were extremely helpful, they booked us on a night tour of dc and oh was it magnificent! One of the best tours i've ever taken till date.

This was the best hotel of my may 2013 usa trip, i would certainly return to the hotel and will recommend this hotel as a must to anyone visiting washington dc.

Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful and make it feel like a smaller place than it is. The common areas are good for networking. I liked the gym facility. Decent number of cardio machines, free weights, and machines but could have used a bit more free floor space. Unlike a number of hotels I visit on business, the Omni is in walking distance from some pretty cool local bars and restaurants as well as the metro station. Property is well kept and it also seems to have been remodeled not long ago.

My age comment is based on things that remodeling can't fix like the size of elevators, which many people had to wait for on occasions with the number of people going up or down and only two small elevators for each wing. Also the closet was a bit tight and the safe was mounted on top shelf...such that the door did not open completely before hitting the door frame.

Definitely would not mind staying again.

This was our go-to hotel when our daughter was a student at nearby American University. It is also the hotel where her grandfather took his dates for dancing when he was stationed in Washington during world War II. Now that she has stated in the city, we still chose to stay here when we visit her. We love the charm and grandeur of the older hotel. The splendid lobby with fresh flowers and high ceilings welcomes us each time we visit. The rooms and bathrooms can be a bit small, but not always. They are restful in a tasteful manner. The view are wonderful from the higher floors, either of Rock Creek Park or the hustle of the city. The ground can not be matched...a lovely our door pool in season, tress,, flowers and quiet areas. You can forget you are just a short walk away from the redline metro and all the benefits of the city. There are many good and varied restaurants just around the corner on Conn. Ave. It is a short walk to the National Zoo. There is valet parking available, with in and out privileges. We have always found the staff the be attentative and helpful. Some of the carpeting in the hallways is a bit worn and there can be large groups staying there which can be noisy at times. (in the lobby, not the room areas. During the summer you will meet many foreign tourists in the elevators. We have stayed her at least 15 times, if not more., so you know we like it. This last time there was a problem with our room (someone had gained access after it was cleaned and took a shower!). When we notified the desk they were horrified, quickly found us a new, comparable room with more apologies. Later that evening, a complimentary cheese/fruit plate and drinks arrived with even more apologies. We will keep coming back, even if the daughter now lives near Capitol Hill.

Just left Omni Shoreham and loved our time there. Just a few minutes from the city centre and close to a great selection of bars and resturanrs. The rooms are large for Washington and nicely set up. The resturanrs fine and the staff helpful. Great value for the capital

We booked this hotel for it's location in a nice area of Washington DC, far enough outside the hussle of downtown DC area, but easy to access via Woodley Metro station, which is just five minutes walk from the hotel. Once we arrived at the hotel it was quick to check in and the receptionist was pleasant and efficient. We arrived at our room which was located in the Parkview part of the hotel. The room was clean and tidy, with a large flat screen TV. The bathroom was an average size and clean with plenty of towels. We did have a problem with the wash basin plug, which didn't fit to well and let all the water drain away when inserted. This was reported to reception and within 30 minutes there was a maintenance man to repair the wash basin.
I couldn't recommend this hotel enough, so if you are visiting DC, do yourself a favour and check in to this hotel, you won't regret it.

Just left the Omni Shoreham after 2 nights and wanted to compliment the staff and the hotel.
The room was generous, the staff was friendly, and the quiet of the room was superb!!!
The room was spotless, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom with very hot water, large towels and good shampoo.
I was able to traverse the city easily and when taking a taxi, obtained one quickly!
Would soooo recommend for travelers!
