“Retreat to Romance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

I reserved the Retreat to Romance package for valentine's day for my husband and myself. I thought the package was an EXCELLENT value for a mini-Valentine's Day retreat. I was quiet pleasantly surprised to be able to get such a great offer for Valentine's Day at such a quality hotel. I was extremely pleased with the pre-call concierge service that assisted me in getting a last-minute reservation at the restuarant to be able to benefit from the Valentine's Day pre-fix menu. I would definitely recommend this package and reserve it again for a special, romantic retreat.

Stayed here on a recent business trip. Was worried about it being too far outside the city but the hotel is a 2 minute walk to a Metro stop and two stops into the center of DC. It's a beautiful property in a great neighborhood in NW DC with lots of restaurant options.

Our family stayed at the Omni Shoreham and could not have asked for a better location and wonderful stay. From the valet, check-in, beautiful entrance and friendly staff. This was my first overnight stay in Washington and I was extremely impressed. The location was great and many shops within walking distance and the Metro across the street. I will defintely plan to stay there for any future trips! Also, very close the Rock Creek Park, the Kennedy Center and many tourist attractions.

The public areas of the hotel are beautiful. The lobby is huge and is a great place to meet friends, hang out and people watch or just to relax after a day of sight seeing. The location was ideal for visiting D.C. We were there to visit colleges and to do some touring. The food and drinks in the lounge were great. My athletic daughter said the fitness center was excellent. A great time had by all.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel to a friend and would go back there in a heartbeat.

We arrived sans baggage (thank you JFK!) and explained our plight to Emily. She supplied us with all the toiletries we needed until we could get them back. By the 3rd day we were getting pretty frustrated that we still hadn't received our luggage but we were so cheered up when we got back to the hotel and received a complimentary bottle of wine and cheese platter sent to us (from Emily) to make us feel a little bit better. The service at Omni Shoreham was absolutely splendid.

The hotel itself is grand and you could live out of there with the number of shops it has. The location is great too - right near a subway station.

Sure you could pay for the Mayflower or the W, but Omni Shoreham has a great value for the price. Convenient to the metro (when that's working) and the great city it reside in. Check in and out was a breeze, the rooms are nice. We keep coming back for the most comfortable bed we can find. Only downside is the expensive parking.

Dear “Kosampler,”

Thank you for your kind comments and rating regarding our beautiful and historic hotel. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It’s a bit embarrassing for me that we missed servicing your room on one of your nights. I assure you that it had everything to do with the large snowstorm and nothing to do with a gratuity. Given the coincidence I could see how you might feel that way, but I assure you, your tip did not affect your service. Our housekeepers really enjoy working here and take pride in making you feel at home.

Thank you again. I look forward to having you as our guest the next time you are in the Nation’s Capitol.

Warm regards,

Terry Marks
