Lot's of history and elegance at this place. If you are disabled, you might need to use a separate entrance because they don't want to detract from the opulence. But it was certainly fun to stay in this unique hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just okay - not worth the price tag"
Omni was just okay...very oppulent, think Great Gatsby, when you first enter the reception hall/lobby and the courtyard is beautiful but the rooms are a disappointment compared to everything else - felt like we were in a room of an apartment. Our room was dusty and hair in the tub, not cleaned well. Also, the decor is very dated and the bathroom is […] beyond small. We would have preferred a walk-in shower instead of a tub which took up considerable space. Overall, we were not impressed with the value of the room and what it had to offer for a 4 star hotel.

Except for the tiny, often crowded, elevators, I've got nothing negative to say about the Omni Shoreham. The staff was pleasant, the room clean and comfortable, and the location superb.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved our stay last week -- conveniently located to most things DC -- cabs to downtown about $17 -- parking was a little high but the Valet service was nice -- my suggestion take an airport shuttle to the hotel and use cabs to take you to front doors of attractions - don't rent a car - finding places to park is beyond calculus !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very uncomfortable bed!"
We stayed across the street for three nights at the Marriott Wardman Park an, frankly, the bed was much more comfortable. The Omni needs to look into the problemGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Really fun pool and beautiful gardens. Good restaurants nearby and close to metro.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent area, friendly staff, pristine hotel"
My children and I have stayed at the Omni Shoreham twice now. We love it, because they are attentive to the children, professional, and friendly. The lobby and room are pristine. The outdoor pool is absolutely lovely. It's close to a red line Metro stop (Woodley Park), within walking distance to Rock Creek Park, the National Zoo, and great restaurants. […] It's also accessible to roads leading to DC and VA. Would definitely stay there again and again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Metro station, Food, Easy access to sites"
The nearest Metro station was a short 5 minute walk in a safe neighborhood. There are several different restaurants in the area with good prices and friendly waiters. Most all memorials and museums are a quick Metro ride away and not far from stations. Washington DC is easy to navigate and citizens were willing to help visitors, and even suggested other […] sites and tour companies. Everyone at the Omni Shoreham was friendly and helpful. The guest room, gift shops, and restaurant were always clean and beautifully decorated. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent DC hotel."
Close to the National Cathedral and the Zoo. Metro station is steps away, connecting you to all of DC. Restaurants, shops and stores directly across the street as well. Connecticut Avenue brings you right down to the capitol sights.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Wonderful must stay hotel in DC"
The Hotel is located in the NW portion of DC, near the National Zoo, and behind Rock Creek Park and close to all public transportation . The hotel had been updated, and has a rich history dating back to the 1930s , its Lobby/ garden/main entrances etc. all reflected its pride in its history. So too the room, it was clean, tastefully decorated, and both […] beds being very comfortable to sleep in. The Wifi was easy to use, and after becoming members (a free signup) to the Omni rewards plan, it was free. Towels were replaced daily, and the sheets on the beds replace when asked to do so, but what really made our stay a pleasure was the staff. From the valets, who parked and retrieved our vehicle when asked, to the doormen always accommodating with our luggage, and assisting us with information, to the knowledgable concierge helping us with getting about DC, by directing us to the Metro, places to eat locally and the use of taxis to get about, they were very friendly and helpful. The pool staff too helped us with getting towels, and food at the pool area. Breakfast was wonderful with a buffet and omelets made to order and friendly morning service with coffee, tea or juices. During our stay we felt like family getting to know them better each day. This hotel truly reflected its quality via its staff, and its décor. Its a wonderful hotel for families and older travelers.

"Not a 4 star hotel"
Omni is a "refurbished" older Hotel. It has a good history. Many celebrities have used it in the past. Based on my experience with 4 star hotels Omni, in my opinion should not be ranked as a 4 star hotel. May be a 3 star. Positives: Location is good, closed to metro station and it is surrounded by a lot of restaurants. Negatives: Parking charge is way […] too steep (I am not supposed to mention the rate). Elevators are too small and you have to wait. Bathroom is unacceptably small. Carpets are old and stained. But the most annoying thing is the noisy air conditioning unit which keeps you awake.

The hotel can use a wheelchair-like ramp near the front doors to assist with getting luggage from the front desk to 'out the door' instead of dragging the luggage up the stairs to the front door to get your shuttle or cab. Otherwise, everything & everybody were great!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Value and ammenities"
Loved this Hotel. Would definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for an extended stay"
Very comfortable hotel with great amenities both inside and outside. the décor is traditional DC and you are reminded of the dignitaries and important people that have stayed there. A block away fro the red-line creates access to all points in DC. the neighborhood restaurant and stores create interest and affordability when you want it. The outdoor […] pool and lawn in the rear of the hotel are beautiful and scenic. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel Close to Metro in Quiet Area"
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. The hotel was excellent. The room was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the hotel amenities such as the beautiful pool and exercise area. The only downside was the ridiculously high cost of parking. While it was convenient to not have to worry about finding parking in D.C., $82.00 for 2 nights of […] parking seemed excessive.

"Good historic hotel"
Located in the zoo area between goergetown & White House. Stayed on the north side suite 762 with no view but seen VPs daily motorcade on street. Comfortable suite with dated AC unit. Failed to get the breakfast option with our room & staff would not add on to 3rd party booking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel with a Past"
The hotel was located very near the metro with many restaurants near by. Metro was easy to access. Choice of restaurants were from McDonalds to international food in finer restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was very old but nice enough. My main two problems were clean room and the service of the staf. Our room smelled of mold and old water. The staff was nonchalant at best and hostile at worst. I will explore another hotel if I visit again .Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nursing home smell"
We were very uncomfortable, as the room smelled like a nursing home. It was very overwhelming.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room was bland"
All was nice at the Omni. I just didnt like that my room was so plain. There weren't any pictures and everything, desk, and bed seemed to be too close to the door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Iconic Hotel.My daughter said may be the "Beatles" stayed in our room.Great History.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointing... not what it used to be"
I always stay at the Omni when I visit DC, but this time the wifi was not free for select guests because I did not book directly through the hotels website. I understand the hotel has to make money but I was not told this when I checked in and gave my select guest number. Also after the first night we were there housekeeping never cleaned our room, […] the trash was full, the bed was not made, the only thing the maid did was bring in new towels and then proceeded to hang the privacy sign on the door... which I know for a fact we removed before leaving for the day. I usually give this hotel 5 stars for everything but I was kind of disappointed this time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel in nice area of DC"
The parking is very expensive. The room was okay; wall paper peeling from walls; shower did not function.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was beautiful and clean. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. The hotel restaurant was pretty expensive, but there were many restaurants close by. The metro was just a short walk from the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed at the Omni Shoreham for three nights with my wife and daughter. It's a classic hotel in great style. The room was very comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed the outdoors swimming pool every day in very pleasant surroundings. The only complaint is that the elevator capacity is a bit low for the large hotel, so at peak hours one may have to wait […] a few minutes for the elevator to come.

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
Hotel and front desk staff were lovely! The room was fantastic, but the front door staff seemed disorganized.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's all about the money when it is Expedia booked"
$50 a night to park, they make sure you know everything costs and I wasn't disappointed or impressedGenuine Expedia 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
"Beautiful hotel in a good location."
The room was very quiet overall, however the last morning of our stay the cleaning staff were talking and laughing quite loudly not far from our door. Also the ice machine didn't work on our floor so had to go to another floor to get ice. With that said this hotel has an absolutely beautiful large garden area with patio tables and chairs, a gazebo, […] a fountain, and some hammocks under the trees. Beautiful flowers all around. The staff is very kind and the hotel holds much history. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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
Staff was accommodating helpful and very pleasant... the room where we stayed was not in the main side of the hotel (more like an annex..lol) but even with that you did not feel isolated.... the room has something that is not always available in hotels... A WINDOW THAT ACTUALLY OPENS!.... great location if you want to do site seeing (very close to metro) […] and is very child friendly (even for a hotel of this stature in Washington DC).. It is located in an area in NW that has a nice selection of eating choices (both for adults and family friendly).... Great place to spend a few days or a few weeks....

"Nice older hotel, but I had a few issues"
The Omni Shoreham is conveniently located a mere block (or less) from the Red Line so it is convenient to take public transportation to the hotel. The decor is lovely and the staff friendly. HOWEVER, I was there attending a conference which began before room check-in time. I left my luggage with hotel staff and went to my meeting. when I checked in […] later, the check-in staff assured me that she would make sure my bag was delivered to my room. Well I attended a reception and then went to dinner. Three hours later still no bag. I called the front desk and my bag was promptly delivered. THEY DISCOVERED THEY HAD DELIVERED IT TO THE WRONG ROOM!!!!! Thank goodness I had no real valuables in my bag. My other complaint is there was no light fixture in the closet. I had to turn on the main ceiling light in the main room in order to see in the closet. Also the light blocking curtain was torn where the wand to close the curtain used to be. It was missing. Oh! The salmon we had for lunch was overcooked. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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
"Good location but old room"
This hotel is in a very good neiborhood at the north of DC downtown. 12 minutes walk to DC Zoo. 5 minutes walk to metro red line station Woodley Park. Convenient to go to everywhere taking metro. A lot of restaurants near by. The room is old but clean. However, the main problem is the venting fan in the bathroom cannot be turned off. It keeps running […] all night.
