Omni Shoreham is an interesting hotel. It was built in 1930, which generally is code for "get ready for weird odors, strange proportions, and zero soundproofing." (Ok, I guess I should be taken by the history, the unique accents, the grandness and whatnot, but I prioritize creature comforts first.) Ultimately we had a very good stay here.
* If you find the right room, this place rocks. We spent 4 nights in 697, which which extremely private, quiet and spacious.
* The staff is excellent (front desk, valet, room service.)
* The rooms were nice, considering the age. (See photos.)
* The lobby feels "alive." There were several events going on, the restaurants were busy, etc. This is a good sign considering how deep into off-season we were.
* The neighborhood was really nice and safe. We took several walks in the area.
* The price was right. Shop GHA and Omni flash sales for good last-minute prices.
* The first room we had (in the middle of the hotel) was noisy. Really noisy. If you get this sort of thing, ask to be moved, because habituation doesn't improve your mood.
* Our light in the closet of the first room randomly turned on and off when the door was closed. Google auto-complete reveals that there is some haunting mystique to this hotel (for the Ghost suite only), but our first room had the same symptom. Boo!
Overall, I'd totally stay here again.
