Great location, good facilities

close to restaurants & Metro. Attended Conference while staying there. Wifi worked well enough, although they try and charged me but I managed to sign up for some club so that I got free. Gym was very good, spacious. Its a busy place, but that makes it all the more cool.

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.

I could live here.

Comfortable, clean, organized, and beautiful. Any staff member that I approached immediately stopped what they were doing to give me their full attention and stayed with me until my need or question was taken care of.

Excellent fitness room and service

I received excellent service from the moment I checked in. I wanted access to their fitness room. They suggestedI join their "Omni Select" Club so that the fitness room and Wifi would be free throughout my stay. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel lobby was decorated beautifully for Christmas. The best part of the hotel - the fitness room. State of the art ellipticals and treadmills with TV/radio/CD/DVD/mp3 access with free headphones to use. The only thing I missed - they only have an outdoor pool. Too cold for December. The Chicken stir-fry from room service was very expensive, but was the BEST I have ever eaten. I would purchase it again.
