Here since the 1930s, the Omni Shoreham has hosted a number of dignitaries, US senators and representatives, AND the Beatles! It's easy to see why--the expansive layout of the winged building, HUGE ballrooms, and beautiful guest accommodations are well worth the price!

The hotel looks pretty from a nice distance but some major issues here 1) mouse running across the floor of my room 2) waited in hallway 30 minutes for manager to bring key to a new room Hotel is old and needs basic work. Staff are nice but completely overwhelmed. You can easily find a better place than this!

Decent hotel. They believe in maintenance and repair more than replacement so the furniture and fixtures look dated.

If you're looking for spacious rooms, the Omni definitely has them. The rooms could use an update, but it was fine for a couple of days and priced just right. It is in walking distance to the zoo which is great if you're traveling with kids. They are very kid friendly and even gave our kids a little big back...

My stay at the Shoreham for a conference was excellent. The room was comfortable, spacious and clean with all the amenities needed. Since it was December, the lobby was beautifully decorated with fantastic Christmas trees and decorations. The food served at the conference was high quality, tasty and plentiful. I had a great stay.
