“Our recent stay at the Omni in DC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Upon our arrival at this hotel we were greeted with prompt and friendly service. We initially had an issue with their first choice for our room however they corrected this situation within a few moments and the rest of our stay was above our expectations. The bell staff even provided us with coupons to the local Dunkin Donuts that had recently opened within walking distance from the hotel. Our family would choose this hotel again (possibly during a different time of year so that we may enjoy the pool - it closing during the winter months). They are conveniently located near restaurants as well as the zoo. The metro is approximately 1.5 blocks away for easy travel to local attractions.

The OMNI was an excellent experience for our family. The hotel has a beautiful interior, and our room was great. We had a large closet and a dressing area. We used the Zoo package rate, so parking and breakfast was included. The breakfast was great every morning. The staff was always friendly and helpful,and we enjoyed the neighborhood and its close proximity to the metro. Our entire family enjoyed our stay here.

I had a very pleasant stay at the Omni in Washington, D.C. over the Christmas holidays. The room was comfortable and pleasant, staff friendly and courteous, and restaurant elegant and spacious. The hotel also has a wonderful location, close to the metro and lots of fun little restaurants. Had a great time.

Hotel is very nice, historic and good location near zoo. Don't accept the room near the elevator if they give it to you. Way too loud. Valet parking may get a screw in your tire. Don't use it. And when you speak to them about it, as nice as they sound, they will not call back. Sunday brunch is excellent.

I just love this hotel. Spacious rooms, gracious decor, real closets -- with padded hangers for sweaters! -- and such a grand feel. I imagine I'm a 1930s movie star every time I stay here. Yet it never feels "dated"; more like a classic that never goes out of style. The hotel also has just enough modern amenities for today's traveler, including WiFi (free if you're an Omni Select member), room safes large enough for laptops, an ambient music channel for working/relaxing, etc. My only quibble is the early and inflexible cancellation deadline of 2pm day of arrival, which left people with cancelled evening flights due to Winter Storm Hercules paying for rooms they did not occupy. This is such a service glitch in an otherwise fine hotel.

With that policy caveat, the Omni Shoreham is a gracious hotel and such an oasis.

We attended the New Year's Ball and stayed overnight. It was a great experience. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, probably the best I've encountered in a while (and I travel a lot, domestically and internationally) especially considering it was a major holiday when many of them perhaps wished to be elsewhere. The hotel is very pretty--inside. Outside, the building is just a brown non-descript structure. (It's DC, not Las Vegas!) The elevators on the West side are small, but that just speaks of the historic nature of the building. The room was clean and tastefully decorated, although I noticed a few spots in which the wallpaper was peeling away from the wall. The bathroom is a bit small too, but again, that is to be expected in a hotel built in the 1930's. Everything (within the room and in the common areas) was well stocked and comfortably arranged. The hallways were quiet at all times (I feared they wouldn't be...with such a huge NYE celebration downstairs...) and we had no trouble sleeping. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of a Metro station and just off major highways. The New Year's Ball was very well planned and managed. I assume the catering was provided by the hotel, and I have to say, the food was surprisingly good, especially the superbly roasted leg of lamb, a treat I did not expect at such a huge event! There were many meatless options too, all tasty, and I appreciated the "international cuisine" flair. The "open bar" options were...open bar quality: plentiful, well stocked, well serviced, just not top shelf, of course. After having a couple of "free" drinks, we walked to the hotel bar to have a proper drink. Cocktails were reasonably priced and well-crafted.

I've stayed at motels for the same quality but a much cheaper price. I had a two double beds in my room. The comforters were really nice but the light shines too brightly in the room and can't be blocked out with curtains. There's only a sheer curtain to "block" out the sunlight.
