"Nice hotel, but .."
Nice hotel, but the housekeeping talk too hard in the morning.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice "class" hotel"
Helpful staff, good valets , nice amenities, older hotel but very very well kept- amazing ambiance, good location, good selection of area restaurants within 2 blocks- metro and bus stop across the street and Rock Creek Park behind the hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"85 year old hotel, nicely kept"
We were there for 2 nights. The hotel is huge, providing space for large events. We had a rather mixed experience with the quality of their services: excellent at the reception and with cleaning staff, poor otherwise, especially regarding the bell captain. Very thin walls, we unwillingly followed each and every conversation in the next room, and not […] only that. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful hotel - comfortable - great location, near zoo and metro. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Our kids loved it! Pool is in a beautiful setting!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Service, Very Friendly Staff"
Our room was enormous, very comfortable, and very convenient for two elderly people. The roll-in shower was especially nice. However, the laundry service was quite costly and there was no coin-operated laundry for the patrons to use. The restaurant was also high in price, but the meals were absolutely delicious every time, with elegant presentation […] and more-than-ample portions. I downgraded the convenience and neighborhood because it is quite far from downtown and all the attractions, creating a hefty taxi charge or long subway trip each day.

Wonderful hotel and surroundings. Just be aware that you must valet your car. There are no other options.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Short DC Stay"
We arriived on a Wednesday and left that Saturday. The best part about the hotel was the location. It is a short two block walk to the Metro. I felt that for the price the room was very dated. There are illustrations in front touting the famous people that have stayed there over the last seventy five years. From the multiple layers of paint to the pealing […] walpaper in the bathroom I felt that they could have proclaimed that "Washington slept here" and have been accurate.

Beautiful large hotel with an elegant lobby and gorgeous grounds, including a pool with a bar and food service.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was in DC for business for the week. My stay was exceptional.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family holiday with teenagers"
Great place to stay while visiting Washington in summer holiday. Early morning excellent breakfast in beautiful surroundings. Hotel is in a relaxed neighbourhood so we felt very safe. After visiting the museums it's wonderful to relax in the pool. Hotelstaff is excellent. Very helpful and we felt very welcomeGenuine Expedia guest review
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
Room environment was great but the bed mattress was to hard. Hotel staff was friendly, hotel lobby classic and elegant.Genuine Expedia 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
"Would Come Back"
Beautiful lobby and meeting rooms. Nice pool. Clean room. Friendly staff. Right next to Metro stop making access to access to everything really convenient. Hotel food was overpriced, but probably to be expected. Would have liked to have a microwave in room.Genuine Expedia guest review
The kids loved it. The hotel is older, but the vibe and convenience outweigh that aspect. And, a short walk to the zoo.Genuine Expedia guest review
Over all experience in this hotel is very good. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The lobby was a nice place to relax sit and visit. The restaurant in the hotel was excellent particularly the breakfast.Genuine Expedia 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
"Beautiful historic hotel very close to metro"
Great hotel. Comfortable. Staff was very pleasant. Room was very clean. Historic. Very close to metro so it was convenient for sightseeing. Loved it!Genuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel was beautiful and well kept!"
Enjoyed our experience completely! Staff was attentive and caring! Great location and accessible.Genuine Expedia 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
Nice Hotel. Friendly People. Very Good location. Closet o Restaurants, Monuments, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel Location"
Backround: Late 20's couple visiting DC for a week. Driving up to the hotel it look great. Tried to find self parking but it didn't exist. I had to valet the rental car. The valet people were the first staff member of the hotel. Super friendly and they all said hi to us as we walked into the hotel. The entrance lobby was great. It looks like your walking […] into a old era hotel with huge chandaliers and marble floors. As we check in i ask about the rate for valet. To my shocking surprise it was $40 a night!!! We weren't expecting to have to pay an extra $200 in parking. I found that a little outrages. We get our key and walk through the hotel to the elevators. These are the smallest elevators possible for a HUGE hotel. It could only fit 4 people with luggage. We get to our room and walk in and I can't help but notice the smell of a older hotel room. That musky type smell. We had a king size bed, a chair and a desk. The bed was ok. Some people say its the best but it was nothing special. It was weird big bed with only 2 pillows on it. Our room had a nice view of the pool. Until i realized your can hear everything going on outside.Our bathroom was nice and there was absolutely no counter space for any of our things. That really annoyed us. Found it odd when i showered there was a air vent right above the shower head. It was pretty gross showering and seeing the dust filled vent right above my head. No free wifi unless in the lobby.No sound insolation.Could hear everything Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The kids loved getting a cookie with milk at night. We had a great time!Genuine 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
PBS Centenial Celebration was an excellent experience with a great stay at Omni ShorehamGenuine 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
"Great experience.Would love to come back."
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.
