Had a great experience. Will definitely stay again at the Omni when in DC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very highly satisfied with the hotel and our stay except for the valet service. Found some marks on outside of vehicle where it had scraped something and the rearview mirror had fallen and was sitting on seat. We were also surprised at the daily amount of parking fees.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Omni was more elegant than we expecting. The photos online didn't do it justice. The staff was courteous and effective. The room was beautiful, as well as the view. The location was centrally located to the transit system and there were numerous restaurants within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place to stat"
The place was great, one of the most affordable available when we were booking. Very convenient location, few resturants clost by, metro just a block away and 10 minute walk to the Zoo. The rooms were clean and very big which was fantastic. This place I will book again for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location to drive or ride the Metro."
Loved it!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We'll be back"
Enjoyed our stay vary much. 1st room on 3rd floor had some sort of laundry facility next to it and was a bit noisy. They found another room for us a little further down which was great. Very quiet, peaceful view and a very big room. If you signup for their rewards program, they will deliver morning drinks and a newspaper to your room at no charge each […] day. Nice touch.

"Great Hotel, no free wifi, nice pool and good view"
I though it was great and very comfortable, no free wifi unless you join there club.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
All was well. We took advantage of the pool - which felt great after a hot day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Nice hotel and good staff. Hotel is very up to date for the most part. Only issue is parking is valet only.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Older but nice"
This hotel is older in a good location one block from metro redline makes it pretty easy to get around. Staff was friendly. Pool is very nice with a good little bar. Only complaint is that elevators are small and slow. It is a big hotel so it can be frustrating waiting only to find elevator is fullGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and Comfortable but not again"
It's a lovely historic hotel. We were told we could have the haunted suite by reservations, but then found out when we arrived that they do not rent this suite. It happened to be the reason we chose this hotel. It's comfortable and the staff are nice enough. Parking fees are atrocious, it's a long walk to the national mall but the subway is close.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location and surrounding community is great. Good value !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Next to a metro station with plenty of places to eat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I always stay at the Hyatt. Discovered this beautiful hotel with a very classical environment. Loved every minute of my stay - from checking in to leaving. Restaurant meal was great. View was very good. Quality of service- excellent. Great location. I will return. First time using Hotel.com. Was very skeptical about service. You are GREAT! Will use […] your service again. Thanks for helping to make my visit where I wanted to stay very enjoyable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best hotel in DC"
Had a fantastic time. Great hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice staff, very helpful, good location, interesting neighborhood, good transportationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
From the moment of our arrival the Omni's staff was truly amazing. Courteous, cheerful, informative and very efficient. Good thing because the rooms was quite mediocre. Pretty much so a beige box with no appeal. Everything looked old and dull. The walls were completely bare. Bathrooms were very small and, strangely enough, the sinks were unusually high. […] This massive complex was the host hotel for a family event which explains our stay and while the staff was way above average I doubt we would choose to stay here again. The DC area offers so much better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was in great location. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The only negative was the slowness of the elevators and the fact that if you forgot something in your car you had to go to the valet and they had to walk you to the car and wait for you to finish. I would have liked to have gone on my own and returned the key to them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The property is exquisite, the location ideal, the amenities are better than described, and the staff are warming upon arrival and always with regard to making your stay perfect. We spent two nights to go to the National Zoo, an outstanding adventure, but the stay was the basis of a great time. I would recommend the property to anyone looking for that […] perfect stay!

"Nice hotel, close to tourist area"
We had a really good time. The location is close to tourist area. We had a big room, nice and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice staff, comfy room, great location, everything was great. I would stay here againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Historic hotel, nice area"
The hotel is older and it is kept up well. The rooms are spacious, the bed and linen were nice. Housekeeping did well. It is close to metro and some restaurants. The major issue we had here was the doors. They are heavy and self closing so be prepared to have your room shake and your wake up calls to be at all hours at the whim of the other guests. […] It is a major mistake that needs to be addressed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Metro"
Enjoyed the hotel and the easy access to public transportation. Really didn't want to rent a car knowing ahead of time of the expensive parking, worked out great for me as the train was a very short walk. I wouldn't defiantly recommend signing up for the hotel rewards program ahead of time. Free WiFi and coffee delivered each morning for free, the rewards […] program is also free to sign up.

"Close to bus and trains"
Well kept older hotel although the air conditioning was noisy. Very convenient to public transit. Plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood. Hotel staff was very helpful giving information and directions. Will stay there again on next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my third time staying at the Omni, once for a conference, twice for pleasure. I love this enormous old hotel. I love the old standards they play in the lobby, the gorgeous gardens and grounds, the location next to Rock Creek Park. I prefer big, anonymous grand hotels like these to boutiques and small inns, and the Omni is a classic. Next time, […] I'll request a room with a small balcony as I had the last time but not this time. It may seem a little dated to some, but I find it clean, very comfortable, and luxurious in an old-school way. And their buffet breakfast is pretty much heaven. Don't miss it.

"Good choice for DC."
Nicely refurbished historic hotel. The two queen suite with sofabed is spacious, comfortable and a bargain for DC. Efficient valet parking. No charge for WiFi. Didn't try the restaurant. Nice setting, gardens.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Classic, "grand" hotel, easy access to downtown DC"
Excellent base for visits to national art galleries, a pleasant walk down Rock Creek (where we saw a blue heron catch a good-sized fish and a large turtle sunning itself), a performance of Henry IV Part 2, and half a day at the National Arboretum on the way home. We did not take advantage of many of the hotel's amenities, but we enjoyed a walk around […] the grounds, very pleasant service in all situations, and a good Sunday breakfast. As it was a weekend, we were able to park from Friday evening to Sunday on the street, right across from the hotel, at no cost. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Omni frequent guest rewards vs. Expedia"
Expedia greatly undercut the Internet special rate offered by Omni. Therefore, it was a slam dunk that we took the Expedia offer. That means no points toward frequent stays with Omni. However, we're still supposed to get Omni Select member benefits. We got none of them: no choice of beverage, no newspaper, no nothing. I attribute this to the hotel staff […] member who checked us in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the zoo."
Never been to D.C. and my husband wanted to see the zoo. Close to metro and only about a 10 min taxi ride to Arlington National Cemetery. Definitely a walking trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
When we arrived we thought this is a great place. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The location is great being close to a subway station. Everything about the stay was good except the valet parking which was very expensive and annoying. It is always so much easier to do it yourself but I realize that because of cramped quarters for parking […] this isn't feasible. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Omni a big hit!"
Fantastic. Beautiful room overlooking the park and complimentary milk and cookie! Best deal ever!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect hotel for family with small kids"
Love this hotel. We are a family of 4 with kids ages 2& 5 .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family vacation w/ 5 year old kid"
The hotel is conveniently located nearby Metro station, and within walking distance to the National Zoo. It's easy to explore DC without a car from this location. The room is clean and comfortable. The outdoor pool is kids' favorite.Genuine Expedia guest review
Love the ambiance of the hotel! Love the shops nearby. Did not get to eat in the hotel but I bet it was good too. Metro located just down the block. Will definitely be staying here again at next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Another excellent stay at the Omni Shoreham"
Although extremely crowded during the memorial Day holiday weekend (at least 4 weddings) we enoyed our vist, the third time we've stayed at the Omni Shoreham. We've also stayed at the newer Marriot Woodley park next door and prefer the Omni. Our only complaint are the two small elevators in our wing. As an older hotel, it requires more patience due […] to the smaller number of elevators. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed only one night, but my expirience was great. There is only one thing that I didn't like too much, price's food at restaurant and service room.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a nice hotel. I liked it? It was a nice hotel I slept there. It was clean. The water was hot? Okay?Genuine Expedia guest review
Travelled with hubby and our 1 yr old son, we were able to check in early without an early check in fee, was given a microwave in the room thanks to Fernanda, were able to check out late at 2pm free of charge. You can't beat that! Definitely recommendable. We had a wonderful stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little out of the way, little things add up!"
The Omni Shoreham is a nice hotel, very large with many amenities. Our room was very spacious,especially for DC. Everything was clean and the overall condition of the room was very good, with some minor cosmetic issues. For the price we paid on Expedia it was an excellent value. The downside is that the location requires a car or significant use of […] the Metro system to get to downtown tourist attractions. The only other complaint is that it seems that the more grandiose the hotel, the more everything else costs. Soda's are $4 each, and wi-fi is only free in the lobby. The restaurant was way overpriced for us average travelers and would appear to be pretty steep given the quality of other eateries in DC. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful Hotel - but maybe bagels too expensive"
I had business in this section of DC and received a wonderful 1-night rate from Hotels.com at the Omni Shoreman. Normally, I would not stay at the Omni because it is simply too expensive. With the hotels.com deal, I could sample it. All in all, the Omni is a wonderful hotel in the old-classic-style of the customer is our highest priority. This is great. […] There is much to praise and not much to complain about. Location is great, neighborhood is great - Metro stop is 30 second walk away. My one quibble is the cost of in-hotel amenities. I am not allowed to cite specific costs and rates in this review. Let it be said that I stopped by the lobby coffee bar for a snack - and nearly fainted from the cost of a single bagel. This was not a "sit down" coffee-shop. It was a walk-up counter-coffee-shop. Again, I'm not allowed to say how much it cost. However, the cost was so high that I was shocked. (Mind you, I have stayed in many very fancy hotels in my time and paid a lot for a bagel - this was way over the top.) There was a small market/convenience store 1 block away and I purchased a package of 6 bagels for what it would have cost for 1 bagel at the Omni. My quibble is that there comes a point where you feel taken advantage of. The mega-cost bagel is that point. The Omni could have charged a few dollars more for the room and had reasonably priced bagels in the coffee-bar. I would not have felt so taken-advantage-of. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful upscale hotel!!"
Great rooms!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to metro and restaurants"
Wonderful hotel. Beautiful 4 star hotel but needs a little TLC on some sections. Room was very spacious and clean including the bathroom. Bed was great! About 2 blocks from metro and many restaurants around so we didn't eat at the hotel restaurant, its too expensive. Overall this hotel was beautiful except for the few areas where you can tell its age. […] If we return to DC we will definitely stay at this hotel because it is not near the craziness of downtown but its close to many attractions. You Must go to Medaterra restaurant which is right by the hotel, they had food/drink specials for the 3 days (all day) we were there. Also must go to Nando's Peri-Peri restaurant by the Chinatown metro stop, the chicken is amazing and very reasonably prices. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
