"One night in DC"
The Omni is a fantastic property. It's super convenient to get to from the metro and has an incredible staff. The particular room I was in was interesting as it was a King suite with what seemed like a lot of wasted space. Overall, it was a great, comfortable stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Fabulous hotel, great staff, super location in DC with less than two block safe walk to Metro, with all the charm of an old hotel. Definitely worth the high rating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ugly surprise at the Omni"
It sounded good on paper.The advertised rate was competitive and the photos showed a nice hotel with many of the comforts and amenities we come to expect from a hotel of this category.The first nasty surprise you encounter is the way the hotel has decided to handle the almost impossible parking situation in the area.A bit of background,the street right […] in front of the hotel has very few parking spots and they are always taken.The next possibility of street parking is on Connecticut ave which is a strech walking and inconvenient if you have suitcases and the like.What does Omni do when confronted with this situation? Charge a hefty $35 valet parking fee (the hotel has no self park lot) for a few hours of parking or an outrageous $45 for overnight parking.These are Ne York City rates and are definitely in the price gouging territory,a great shame.Once you have the privilege of paying your $35/$45 parking fee you need to be VERY careful.When I picked up my car it was returned with severe damage to the undercarriage front section that cost me several thousands of dollars to repair.I did not realize that the damage was there until a day later and I had already left the hotel.I truly regret having booked at the Omni,the catastrophe of what happened to me with their valet parking personnel should be a warning to all. If you decide to stay here,DEFINITELY check your car carefully when they bring it out.Good luck... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Honeymooners enjoy Ombi"
It was a honey moon (one of several). We were in the annex. We enjoyed it very much. Some electric outlets weren't working. Also better lighting would be appreciated in the main bedroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice area to stay. Great restaurant across the street (Open City). Nice staff. Very Happy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I found my stay to be enjoyable. The hotel itself does not have many attractions. It is situated close to the Metro which is very convenient and has some very good restaurants across the street. I enjoyed walking to Adams Morgan area and exploring that neighborhood and shops. The room was on the 7th floor overlooking the capital area. Due to the age […] of the hotel the bathroom area was a little awkward and cramped but the room was spacious and adequate for my needs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice but noisy"
Could hear the traffic from the road. Asked for a room on other side and not available. Nice big room though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family trip to D.C"
Wonderful 4 days! Beautiful hotel with the friendliest and most accommodating staff we've ever experienced. Great location! Short walk to metro. Would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent Stay in DC"
We ended up staying here because it was a conference Hotel choice. The price on Hotels.com ended up being better than the conference negotiated rate. The hotel was overall 4/5 stars: This is a solid and decent hotel but was just a little overpriced due to the conference. One day I ended up spilling coffee on the bed and the staff took care of it right […] away. The only complaint we have is they double billed us after already being paid for on the Hotels.com website. The staff took care of removing this but could be a problem if it was not caught. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mediocre stay in DC"
I am a frequent traveller to DC and the only reason I ever choose to stay at the Omni is the price and the neighborhood not the hotel. The hotel lobby is lovely but the rooms themselves are uninspiring and the bed and sheets quite uncomfortable. The hotel is massive and if you stay on the park view side be prepared to walk for 15 to get to your room. […] My TV didn't work and it took and hour for it to be fixed. Overall a very mediocre experience Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice place to relax."
Was a comfortable and relaxing stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was a beautiful hotel to spend a much needed weekend getaway in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful visit with our son. The hotel was clean and pleasant. Unfortunately we were not able to sleep very well because the bed was extremely soft. We did talk to the desk about the situation but nothing was done.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A classic Grand Hotel in DC"
We stayed four nights at the Shoreham for a Thanksgiving visit with family and friends, and enjoyed it very much. Our room was spacious and comfortable, overlooking the outdoor pool. The staff was efficient and friendly. The location could not be better--5 minutes walk from the Metro Red Line, an easy walk to the National Zoo, and close to the bustling […] Adams Morgan area. There are several restaurants close by, and the hotel serves a very nice breakfast/brunch on weekends. We only had two minor issues: (a)there was inadequate hot water in the shower one morning, and (b) the printer in the internet room did not work when we tried to print our boarding passes. Both issues were quickly taken care of by the staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Omni Shoreham is an excellent hotel, with a long history. It's conveniently located to many places in D.C., very close to the Metro station, and has great amenities. It's extremely affordable for the quality of service you receive. The staff is very professional and courteous. They are also very nice with young guests, offering them a welcome gift […] with crayons and activity books, and bringing milk and cookies to their room every evening. Highly recommended!

"very nice hotel, but small room"
We stayed in this hotel many times, however, this is the smallest room we ever got (might be due to booking through hotel.com?). The hotel is beautiful, but our room is okay. The bathroom is very small with a wobbly toilet (we did report to the front desk upon checking out and they said they would fix it). The floor was not very clean after we came […] back from our outing as if they did not vacuum it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in great neighborhood"

"Tiny bathroom in an otherwise good hotel"
Bathroom was too small and the sink could not hold my shaving stuff. Excellent location of the hotel, with good amenities. The king size bed was firm and we slept well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect location. A terrific hotel with a rich history. The mattresses do need updating though ... a little too soft for our liking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I will definitely continue to stay at this Omni when I visit family in DC. It was safe, clean, very comfortable bed, and quiet. My room was in an older part but it was charming. I also loved the area. A quick walk to the National Zoo, Cathedral and wonderful restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful hotel - great price...hope to get this price again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Should've Researched More Before Booking"
Stay was Mediocre, Staff very friendly. Parking Cost was Ridiculous (40.50 for 1 night). The King Deluxe Room was extremely small and the ventilation system was the worst. It's an older building so it didn't have Central AC--so it was Extremely hot w/the heat on, and freezing with it off. Our noses were stuffed up the entire night. Checked out at […] 7AM the next morning which I never do, I typically stay until checkout but not this time. Hotel was ok, very clean but the next time I'll book more carefully.

"Great hotel, $$$ Parking."
Hotel was nice and nearby a good set of restaurants. What was really surprising was when I realized it's valet parking only and it cost me $41. Unfortunately we arrived late so I had limited choice. Plan ahead.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overpriced rooms, window broken, I paid over $400, worth no more than $200. Breakfast good at Roberts, hotel conference dinner there, miserable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Everything was perfect!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The pillows were great but the bed itself was pathetic. I've slept on better beds at holiday inns. The TV needs to be upgraded as well. Awesome, historic hotel but it's time for a major makeover of the rooms.Genuine Hotels.com 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

"QUICK 0NE DAY TRIP"
OVERALL A VERY PLEASANT EXPERIENCE. HOWEVER PARKING WAS VERY EXPENSIVE & LIMITED OPTIONS. THE STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL & PLEASANT.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great people, did not like to pay for parking.Genuine Hotels.com 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

"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.
