Wonderful Place To Stay

We traveled to Washington, D.C. for the first time and chose the Omni as a place to stay. It was fantastic! A beautiful hotel in a great location with many restaurants, close to the Metro and the national zoo as well as Washington National Cathedral. The concierge at the hotel booked us a night tour of D.C. the first night we were there and it was wonderful. The lobby is beautiful and very comfortable, the staff very polite and attentive. The room we chose was a queen size bed with a lovely bathroom. The housekeeping staff was very attentive. We were able to get to the Capitol, the National Mall and the Smithsonian very quickly as we were close to a Metro station. Well worth the stay and located in a lovely section of D.C.

Took the Super Shuttle from Dulles International Airport to hotel for $29 and $10 for second person saving money over/taxi. Reagan National Airport would have been closer. Used the Metro to get around for the first 4 days and rented a car the last 4 days to go to Monticello, Mount Vernon and Gettysburg for full day trips. All were a must see!

Great Location for the Price

Great hotel. A little far away from the Mall area which is where most of your time is spent if you are sightseeing. The rooms are not very quiet and you could hear everything through the doors as people moved down the hall at all hours. We even had an incident after being out all day and the cleaning folks left our door cracked and not fully closed. A little scary but all of our things were intact. Overall, though, it was a very nice hotel for the price and the staff were very helpful and nice.

Go to the Matchbox restaurant. What an amazing place. Best Pizza ever, and has so much more. I was not looking forward to a pizza place our first night there, I wanted Blue Crabs, but this place is amazing.

Good location, big room

The hotel was well-located - about a block away from the subway and quite close to Kalorama and Adams Morgan. Cabs were also readily available outside and it's only a 15 minute trip to Reagan airport. For the price, it was pretty great. I only have 2 complaints: (1) upon entering the shower, there were strands of someone else's blonde hair on the wall! It would be easy enough to miss when cleaning, but it was kind of gross. Otherwise, the room was spotless. (2) the heater/ac unit was extremely loud

Great father and Son trip

We arrived late, and our room was not what we had desired. Additionally, the water system was down. I voiced my dissatisfaction. They went out of their way to correct the problem. The room was changed the next day. The staff, under pressure,handled it very professionally. I was impressed. I am very particular about hotels. They salvaged my initial impression, and we had a great stay.

This hotel is located only one block from the subway. From there, all of the Washington sites are easily accessible. We took the train to the Smithsonian Station, Dupont Circle, and Federal Triangle. It was very easy.
