“Good location and large rooms”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

The Omni Shoreham has many very good features - its location is good, rooms are generous and have everything one would require. Yet, it does feel very dated and is a bit tired in some areas - especially the décor. I would have rated the hotel very good had it not been for the wifi charges (which I think should come as standard) and the fact that my room was incredibly cold even with the heating on (leaky windows).

Our room was on the 2nd floor. It is big and clean. The building itself is an antique. So sound-proof system is not that good. We could hear people talking in the hallway from the room. And I bet our kids were probably heard by half of the guests there! LOL!
The hotel is located at a convennient place for dinning and grocery shopping. The valet parking is alittle over-priced: $42; but it is very covennient and safe.
If there was a microwave in the room, it would have made our stay even better since we had a toddler, who only drinks warm milk.
Plus it is fun to know there were so many celebrities lived there! I wouldn't mind returning at all.

Hotel is beautiful, great area, close to metro, sights and restaurants. Check in was a bit of a hassle so if you are going on business make sure you have a business credit card in your name because even with a credit card authorization, it was still an issue. Be careful with the valet service because they moved our car from one spot to another for no reason and they could not tell us why they moved it. Also, don't expect timely service for the room. Never stayed in a hotel before where they want to clean your room at 6:30pm.

The Omni Shoreham is a gem. Close to everything in DC yet you feel like you are in the suburbs. Nice sized rooms and the staff is great. Best if you have a car. Great food in the hotel as well as interesting places to eat right across the street

This was my first time at the Omni Shoreham and I came away very impressed. Nicely maintained, large rooms, excellent services and a wide range of restaurants within a block of the hotel. Conference meals were also very good.

The Omni Shoreham is an exquisite experience - really unique in this day and age. It is charming and encourages one to stop a moment and just enjoy the experience of being there - even if on business. Rooms are very special "from another period elegant" yet modernly efficient. It is a terrific value. Staff is first-class all the way. Great and dear people.The best experience I have had in many years. Nice location in a neighborhood that is fun to walk around in. Just the best overall experience.
