Convention destination

Stayed here for a convention that I was attending. The location is far away from the DC city sites , so expect to pay for taxis. Trip to downtown where everything was is about $30 one way including tip. Staff at hotel was decent but very forgetful . They forgot to comp the basic things like wifi and morning drinks for my omni select member card. I had to remind them several times . Maid staff forgetting to restock water, coffee, and tea in rooms. Room service forgetting items on what was ordered. It seemed like I was always calling for something they forgot. For a hotel charging over $300 a night, they really need to step it up. The rooms are older, but nice and big, and it was clean.

Great hotel, great location!

The hotel was really beautiful, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was very close to Woodley Park Metro Station and walking distance to multiple restaurants. Only minutes from the National Zoo! It really couldn't have been a better hotel for the price & location. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. If I get a room on my next visit to DC, I'll definitely look to the Omni Shoreham first.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

I got to DC hours before check in. The hotel let me bring my luggage in advance of check in, which saved me money over the luggage storage company at Union Station. Even with the Metro ride & tip, it was cheaper than the $30 cost at Union Station.

Nice but over priced

The Omni's staff was helpful and the room nice, however the room service was WAY over priced. Each time we ordered something we were also charged a hefty delivery fee as well as taxed on each item on top of the already included gratuity. For two drinks to be delivered it was a $50 charge! Parking was also over priced at $35 a night, with a $6.50 tax on top of it! We enjoyed our stay but will not be coming back.

Great Stay

From the time that I arrived to the time I left, the staff was very friendly and informative. The hotel was beautiful and clean. The room had high ceilings which made the room feel very spacious. Room service was fantastic as well. There are multiple restaurants near this hotel as well that range from Italian to Lebanese food.

good place

Everything is good for a DC hotel. Of course you don't get complimentary wifi in room... Any like many others in DC, breakfast is only served 6-10:30.

Great stay in DC

We were very pleased with our stay at the Omni Shoreham and plan to return on our next trip to DC. The hotel is very beautiful and impeccably kept with access to perfectly manicured outdoor space. The bar is lovely and the restaurant had a fantastic breakfast buffet for a great price. The rooms are clean and comfortable with all necessary updates. And I cannot say enough about the professionalism and kindness of the staff. The nearest metro station is within close walking distance and we were downtown in a flash.

Howad University Homecoming

I was extremely pleased with The Omni Shoreham Hotel, The Staff was most pleaseant , polite and professional. The room I stayed in was not a suite but it was roomy and had all the amenities of a suite. The only problem I experienced at this location there was no parking in the area and the parking at the hotel was 35.00 per day

Beautiful location, need a little work

We stayed here for one night while in town for a wedding. The lobby and gardens were beautiful, and while our room was clean ,it showcased peeling wall paper and thin hallway doors. Room service also seemed over priced for the portions, but that's probably normal for the area. We would stay again, just eat elsewhere instead.
