“What can i say........speechless”
Reviewed October 1, 2010

First of all, WOW! This hotel is fantastic!! When we arrived at the hotel, we were amazed at how beutiful this hotel is! Being british and very modest, we were expecting one of the normal rooms but as we checked in, we were told we had a Queen Suite!? Ok! If you want us to have a Queen Suite, we will take the Queen Suite, Im not going to argue with you. We had paid before we left home and we didnt have to pay extra. The room was mahusive! Like a small flat, and the bed was enormous! Had a sitting room, bedroom and a large bathroom. Its a shame we only stayed here for one night but i would definatley like to say here longer in the not to distant future. Room should of cost $519.00 for the one night

3-night stay at the Omni Shoreham. The hotel is approximately 3 blocks from the Metro off the red line which is very convenient. The room was very clean and comfortable and surprisingly quiet given that I was on the second floor. Ordered room service once and it came very quickly. The staff was very friendly. I plan on staying again at this hotel.

Stayed at the Omni Shoreham only for 1 night in June,really wish it was for longer.The room we had was massive,they had upgraded us to a suite as it was my birthday.The bedroom was spacious with a queen size bed and a bit plasma T.V,with a big en suite bathroom.The living area had sofas,coffee table,desk and chair,plasma T.V and a bay window overlooking the front area of the hotel.The hotel has a nice big pool at the back,sometimes got a little busy.There are a few shops inside the hotel that offered a great selection of goods at good prices.Staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us to make our stay pleasant.The hotel is about 5 minutes walk to the nearest Metro Station which offers great rates.Hopefully will visit this hotel again in the near future but for longer.

We stayed in the Omni last week and it was great. fab room with a comfortable bed. The little extras were great. My husband had celebrated his birthday before we got there and on the day of our arrival a beautifully decorated cupcake and a handwritten card were delivered to our room, fantastic service! Would stay there again. Only disappointment was that the pool cafe/bar was shut.

Have reviewed this one before and I now say we had an even better time. Everything here works. We got upgraded to a suite and it was beautiful. The room couldn't be more comfortable and attractive. The morning coffee service for Omni preferred guests is great. The pool is gorgeous. I had a massage at the spa. I think it might be among the best I have ever had -- I was very tense when I walked in and I walked out on a cloud. The breakfast is not inexpensive but it is really excellent food and service. It is only a little more money than the restaurant across the street and it is much better food, more choice and better service. We enjoyed an evening glass of wine in their very attractive bar. For a hotel bar, it is quite reasonable. Every little thing there is nice -- the check in clerks are charming, the staff in the gift shop are pleasant. It is clearly a very well run property with very high standards. We love walking a few blocks to the zoo and the train stop is just a block away when we want to go around the city. This is among my favorite hotels.

My husband and I met my sister and her family here and we spent four nights at this hotel. It was my first time visiting DC and we were there to visit the sights. We absolutely loved this hotel. Everything was top notch...from the concierge desk to the cleanliness of our rooms. There were a couple of conventions while we were there, so we sometimes had a small wait for the elevator, but considering the size of the hotel, it's bound to happen. We did not eat here, as the prices were a little steep and there were so many restaurants right outside our door to choose from. The metro system is just a block away so no car is needed. I just have to say...good luck figuring out just how the Metro works, seems as though we were always having to replace our tickets...
