“Best place to stay in D.C.!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, alone or with your family, if you are looking for a gold star experience in the DC area, look no further. We stayed at the Omni Shoreham for seven nights last week and an seven nights last August and we felt like royalty! The hotel is exquisitely beautiful, the gardens are like those at a palace, the outdoor pool is the closest you'll get to a resort in the city, the breakfast buffet is to die for, and the rooms are unusually spacious and comfortable. Plus, you will love the way every single member of the staff treats you! The hotel is just a few blocks from the Metro station and there are lots of great little restaurants in the area. The only downside is that the room AC is noisy, but that's par for the course in most hotels and besides, you don't need to keep it running all the time. We booked the Zoo Package for $196 a night (plus tax) which included a huge room, full buffet breakfast every morning for our family of four, and valet parking for the week. The hotel offers many different rates and packages, so be sure to check out the fine points of each one before you decide which one to go with.

Outstanding staff, very professional and eager to please. Good location and near metro for traveling to the downtown area. Rooms spacious and very clean. Valet service is excellent but a bit expensive. I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was a wonderful place to stay for the 4 days we were in DC. The staff are wonderful, the hotel itself absolutely gorgeous (reminded us of the Overlook in the Shining, for you Stephen King fans!) and we really enjoyed our stay. Our room was spacious and very clean, and we enjoyed the friendly nature of the staff.
It is conveniently located, very close to many restaurants and supermarkets about a 5 minute walk away. In addition, there is a wonderful Zoo that we walked to from the hotel, all free entry!
Access to the subway is also excellent, with the nearest station again about a 5 minute walk away.
We absolutely loved our stay here and would love to come back again!

A beautiful, impressive, historical hotel with the best staff ever. Close to anything you may need to have a great time. Metro station, restaurants, pharmacy, shops and the zoo are within four blocks. Great running trails and fitness stops behind the hotel.

Interesting historic hotel at hotel row near the National Zoo. Took 3 trys over 2 days to get a desk lamp lightbulb replaced, never got a morning newspaper outside my door (others did), and Front Desk did get the maid service to replace towels when they weren't one time.

Excellent five-star historic hotel with all modern amenities. Exceptional staff, from the driveway to the housekeeping. Spacious rooms and common areas. Convenient to the Metro station 200 yards away. Nice walking neighborhood - stores and restaurants. Great scenic location at Rock Creek Park - an oasis. Issues: loud A/C units, some dated furnishings, but pros far outweigh the cons.

Our experience at this hotel went way beyond our expectations. I can easily say that this was the best travel experience my family has ever had. The hotel in itself was beautiful and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. The service we received from the wait staff at Roberts restaurant was excellent and the food was delicious. We have done nothing but brag to our friends and family about our stay. We agreed that we will definitely be staying here on any future trips to DC and recommend it everyone we know.
