Omni Shoreham Hotel
Ranked #80 of 141 Hotels in Washington DC
Reviewed April 22, 2014

This grand hotel was built in 1930 and the elegance is still present. From the beautiful chandeliers to the gorgeous wood trims and furnishings, this hotel definitely feels elegant. The room was very comfortable and there is a large heated pool alongside the hot tub. Being just steps from the Metro and many local eating establishments is so convenient when you just want a close location to eat. You will not be disappointed in this hotel as a choice for your visit to DC.

My recent visit to The Omni was fantastic and I have found that the staff at The Omni were all extremely courteous and friendly. The service in the restaurants and lounge areas were superb. I attend a conference in DC every spring and will certainly make this my hotel of choice when there, I highly recommend this hotel when visiting Washington DC.

My friend and I took our two 7 year olds to DC for a couple of days during spring break. It was one of the girls birthdays and when the staff found out they send up a special birthday cake for her. Additionally their valet parking was great, they don't charge extra to stay past check-out like most area hotels. All of the staff from valet, bellhops, front desk, etc were beyond welcoming and friendly.

I stayed two nights at the Omni Shoreham for work conference/training held in the hotel. Obviously, the location was convenient for me with regards to the training. Even better, the hotel is very close to a Metro stop. Using the Metro, it was an easy and inexpensive ~30 minute trip from Regan National airport. This also made it easy to hop on the Metro and spend some time sightseeing in my free time. There are bus stops nearby, too, but I did not use them. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. At first, I thought I'd have issues with the noise from people outside and sirens, but I ended up sleeping very soundly both nights. Since I was traveling light, I appreciated the use of the robe. By joining the Omni Select Guest program at booking, I was able to get coffee delivered to the room. I don't recall if the room had a coffee maker, but the coffee delivered was much better than what comes out of most hotel room coffee makers. The fitness room was a little cramped, but that's because it was well stocked with good quality equipment. It's open 24 hours. No excuses for skipping your workout while here! I had the restaurant's breakfast buffet one morning. It wasn't inexpensive, but at least the offerings and quality of the food matched the cost. It was a good way to start the day. During my training, the hotel supplied a lunch. It was excellent. There are many restaurants within walking distance, too. The only minor issues I had was a malfunctioning deadbolt (I failed to inform the hotel at the time, so I'm not sure how they would have handelled it) and the lack of a wired network connection when the wifi connection wasn't stable (I'm not sure if it was an issue with my computer or the service itself, although I've never had that problem with my computer). All in all a smooth, enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

Everything about our stay was great. The concierge went out of their way to be helpful. Great food options right across the street from the hotel, you must try Woodley Café- terrific!! We walked to the zoo and to the metro. The location was perfect! We will stay with them again. Would have liked another parking option (valet only), but the valets were helpful.

After one stay, it's become my wife's favorite DC hotel because of the grand grounds, wonderful pool, and all the offerings. It's in a great location in NW DC, with great Metro and bus access. In good weather it's great walking distance to upper Dupont or Adams Morgan, just across stunning Rock Creek. This past weekend, the hotel was awash with tulips and cherry blossoms in the front and the back.

All the staff was friendly and helpful, especially Steve at the front desk and Brittany at Morsels, which had a delicious variety of breakfast and lunch specialties - and Starbucks coffees - for quick pickup.

Our room was quite large, outfitted with great work space, a comfortable chair, quick, free Internet, and lots of electrical outlets. It also had a coffeemaker and refrigerator. In short, all the essentials to make a hotel room a thorough comfort.

Room Tip: We asked for a low-floor room. You can use the stairs.
