We were blown away by the Omni Shoreham. The hotel's rich history, the spacious rooms, the very comfortable beds, and the beautiful pool were all spectacular. But what made this hotel stand out were the people running it. Scott the concierge is the very best at what he does. Not only is he kind and helpful, there is nothing he doesn't know about D.C. We were traveling with 5 children, and at the end of each day, the only person they wanted to see was Scott. He spoiled our kids rotten. He made us feel special. And like all the other employees here, no need was unmet. Even the nice lady in the on site jewelry store was hugging our kids goodbye the day we left! Our rooms were immaculate and comfortable. We usually stay at the Ritz, but NO MORE! Thank you, Scott, and thanks to all who made our vacation the best ever!

my family and i stayed there from 6/15 - 6/19. We were able to check in after arriving at 10:30AM which was a hugh plus in my books. There lobby was georgus. The room had some bumps and bruises however the beds were very comfy. the windows opened which i like for fresh air. The walk in closed doubled as a dressing room for us. the bathroom was very big and the room size nice. unlike other reviews we had a quiet air conditioner no problems there. We became loyality members and used the free wifi. enoyed the complmenty beverages and for 4 dollars more a person muffins it made for a nice eazy morning. The delivery time was always as requested. The first night my son got cookies and milk really impressed him. the pool was great with childrens pool and hot tub nice pool bar as well. Only thing is that pool should stay open till midnight alot of people felt that way why shut it at 10:00 . Gym was well equiped and very clean as well as nice open 24hrs hours. Food was great at both resturants in hotel. Grounds were awsome, beautiful and sparkling clean. Was very disappoined that the firepits were not on in the evenings we were there we would have really enoyed that. Everyone that we encounted who worked there were spot on and the best of the best. They really knew there stuff. Thumbs up to them. The furniture in the room was chipped, scratched and dented however that didn't bother us that much. We will probably be returning there again in august

My wife and I just returned from a recent week / weekend vacation to DC and landed a great deal on the Omni Shoreham for 2 nights of our stay thanks to Priceline. The hotel itself is located in Woodley Park, which is not exactly close to the main DC area attractions, but is conveniently located a block away from the Metro so everything is just a short ride away. The hotel itself definitely has a charm or older feel to it. It is a little dated, but that didn't detract from our stay. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The Marquee Lounge is a great way to spend a night out too! The staff there was great and the food was top notch! As others have suggested, join the Omni Select and you'll get some nice perks :) . On a side note, I remember reading reviews about the AC units being somewhat loud when they kicked on - ours made a little kick when it came on but nothing major - however, while it was running we kept hearing a rattling that made sleeping a little uncomfortable until I discovered a fix - simply removing one of the filters that slide in and out made the noise go away and smooth sleeping after that :)

I booked through Hotwire so my initial room was on floor 1 right beside the loud outdoor (aircon?) machinery. I asked for another room and they helpfully put me far away and higher next time. The interior of the hotel has a classic 1930s elegance, as in the lobby etc. Although the hotel has been upated at some point in the last several decades, it has a bit of a dated 1980s look still. That said, rooms are large, quiet, bdes are very comfortable, and the (small) pool will be great for those with kids. Location is fine if you don't mind taking sa taxi or subway across the ravine/ park. But it's not walking distance to the main DC attractions, unlike if you stay near Logan Circle, Dupont, or K Street or even closer to the Mall. (Walkability depends on how much you like to walk; I don't mind a 30 min walk.) There are some good, casual restaurants right across the street so unless you desire to pay $15 for a bagel at such hotels, I'd cross the parking lot to the selection nearby. If you like younger, hipper more central or boutique hotels, this is not for you.

Room Tip: Re-ask if you don't like your room.

Superb from start to finish. The pool was a resort style pool complete with full service bar, food and great service. Grounds were drop dead gorgeous and though it seemed like thousands of people in the halls and lobby, the grounds including hammocks and pool area never felt crowded. Room itself was plenty big with 2 full size Queens and a walk in closet. Staff were all excellent from the Valet, front desk, pool area, and service staff. Am a HHonors Diamond Member but thinking I'll be at the Omni much more often from here on out.

The reviews that I read about this hotel were spot on. The staff is beyond friendly. The presentation of the room and the meals were fabulous. Its location is very convenient when traveling to the Smithsonian and the monuments etc. I do wish that the pool cafe/bar kept later hours to 11pm rather than 9pm though. Housekeeping could perform more rounds and clear room service from the hallways in a more reasonable time. Overall this hotel was a pleasure and I'll definitely stay here in the future.
