"Not my previous experience:"
I recommend against booking this hotel through Expedia because although you get your room cheap, you apparently get a cheap room. I've stayed at the Omni Shoreham before, and it was wonderful. This time I was relegated to their rather run-down outbuilding, where the curtains don't close, the heat is unreliable, and the housekeeping is slipshod.Genuine Expedia guest review
Let me start by saying the hotel is beautiful. I have stayed at the Omni Shoreham before and have good experiences. However, my last visit was not a good experience. They put me in a room that could not be further away from the lobby. I walked down a long hall way, then down another long hall way, then in a elevator that took me down 4 flights, then […] down a long lonely and windowless hall way. I walked so far that I am not even sure I was staying at the Omni and thought that perhaps I had walked to a 2 star motel. Made me think of Get Smart where he walks down long sterile hallways. The room was small and depressing. I dropped my bags off in my room and figured I would go to the bar. So I made the long walk back to the bar area. I sat there and was ignored by the wait staff. I was rather annoyed so I decided to dog sled back to my closet of a room and read -- only to find that Omni charges for wireless. Does any one really still charge for wireless service? Overall not a good experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice large rooms!"
Nice historical hotel in a good location with good rates for the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"4 star hotel that's really a 2 star hotel"
Not a good experience. They gave us an annex room that, from the outside, looked like a cheap roadside motel. On the first night the toilet bowl overflowed and required a plumbing repair. Not all the electric outlets in the room worked, and the in-room coffee brewer did not work properly. The walls are paper thin and you could hear people conversing […] in the adjoining room as if they were in your room. This hotel charges you for w-fi use in your room. and, if you use their business center, the cost is $9.95 for 15 minutes. Outrageous. Also, the hotel is not handicapped accessibly. To exit the hotel you have to climb about 10 steps and there is no ramp adjacent to the stairs.. All in all a most disappointing experience, and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

This hotel was great! I really enjoyed my stay here. It was clean, comfortable. Close enough to all forms of transportation, but far enough from all the congestion. The only drawback is that the room wasn't ready for 1.5 hours and if I book a room, specifying 2 beds, I don't want to be asked over and over how many beds did I request. The young lady […] at the counter was very professional and did apologize profusely. I just wish something would have been offered to make the situation better. One last thing, wireless access should be an accomadation already. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"DC area - Near the National Zoo"
Excellent hotel located near the Smithsonian Institute National Zoo. Nice room with a view, I was there on business for one day so didn't get to take in the sights.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, and near the metro!"
The perfect hotel! Comfortable, and near the metro for easy travel to any place we wanted to go! It wasn't cheap to eat there, but when we did the food was pretty good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"LOVELY lobby, room didn't meet the same standards"
We stayed at the Omni for mid-week family retreat before a video shoot we had in Baltimore. The lobby is beautiful and very impressive, and service when we arrived was top notch. CONS: Unfortunately, the room didn't meet those same high standards. It seemed like a very average room, not particularly large. The adjoining room was unlocked and open […] when we arrived (boy, you can imagine THEIR surprise when we opened up our half and said "hi!"). ALL the food options are exceedingly expensive, including a simple drink in the overpriced bar. Perhaps this is typical for DC, but I've traveled lots in other towns and this really seemed excessively high all around. I believe we had to pay $29 PER DAY also, for essentially mandatory valet parking; there really are no other free or lower-priced parking options for folks staying a few days to visit DC, at least none they were willing to share with us. Some pros: they DID bring up a microwave when we asked for one. They are conveniently located near takeout chinese, a few pubs, subway, a walk from a CVS and just about anything else you might want (we even walked to a "Best Buy" about 25 minute walk away to get a charger I needed) and VERY near the metro system. We also did enjoy their pool. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great suite. Loved everything except the pillows were very flat.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is so beautiful, we couldn't believe how little we paid for a night stay! From the lobby to the room itself, the hotel is spotless and gorgeous. It's located just 2 minutes from the Woodley Metro Station which made it very easy to move around DC and get to the Smithsonian. The staff was very friendly. When we checked in, we were greeted and […] spoken to like old friends. Our room was very comfortable, the bathroom was very updated, and we slept great...the bed is comfy and the room was very quiet. Check out was simple. We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend this hotel to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel & Location, beautiful & historical."
Hotel was older, but beautifuly restored and had a great history, especially of famous visitors. The lobby was very grand and classical including all the amenities one could need/want (bar, restaurant, computers, conceierege, etc.). Our room was very clean and maintained throughout our stay (towels and bedding). Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. […] Taxis are always available, and the metro is a very close walk, taking you to all the national attractions. I would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends.

"Would definitely stay here again."
The staff is helpful, the facility is beautiful and is dripping with history, and we had a comfortable week's stay. I do wish the on-site Hertz rental car system was better and had free parking at the hotel (as other Omni hotels do), and that they were as on-time and as professional as the hotel's staff. But, c'est la vie! We also saw a gorgeous wedding […] take place there in the garden, which overlooks a nature preserve. Don't miss the chance to have a breakfast or lunch at Open City Diner, just across the corner. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Feeling like a celebrity at the Omni Shoreham"
We stayed at the Omni for 8 nights and enjoyed it. The lobby is fantastic. We were happy as to how convenient the location was to transportation and restaurants.

"Fabulous Hotel with superb service"
This was a wonderful place to stay. It's right at a metro stop which puts everything into easy reach, including the museums and monuments. Good restaurants and fun establishments are within walking distance. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. the Concierge staff was extremely well informed and very pleasant to talk with. They had suggestions […] for how to get around to regular tourist destinations and ideas for places that appealed to us that we would not have known about. I know we will make it our destination again soon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"One of the last of the gresat old hotels"
Stayed the weekend Friday-Sunday Oct. 4-6. Gorgeous old hotel (circa 1930) and well-renovated (at least the part I saw.) Large, comfortable room with private balcony. Clean and tasteful. Numerous luxurious details. Fabulous formal garden and access to Rock Creek Park. Friendly, gracious service at front desk and valet service. Only irritant was charge […] for in-room wi-fi, whose service was mediocre anyway. However, front desk may waive this fee for you if you ask. Hotels.com found me a great rate: four-star hotel at 3-star price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
