The staff at the Omni Hotel in Washington DC are awesome! They went above and beyond to make sure everything about our stay was perfect. The rooms were clean and beautiful! The restaurant breakfast buffet amazing! Wonderful vacation!
"A Great Affordable, Deluxe and Historical Venue"
I had no idea when I decided to treat myself to a local getaway thanks to another site's discount offer that the Omni would not only be very affordable for a high end four star hotel but that it has such history, as well. The decor was wonderful, standard king sized bedroom comfortable and nicely sized, excellent lounge atmosphere, polite server and excellent food and drink. The outside garden is awesome to behold (I must go back when it is warmer out and just sit an breathe it in.) Who knew, however, that so many entertainers, including The Beatles in their 1st US appearance, had performed here in the fabled (although only open now for events - not concerts) Blue Room. I should also mention that the location of this Omni can not be beat as close as it is to a metro stop and several sites including the National Zoo!
"Grand old hotel in the best sense"
The Shoreham was built in 1930, and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. It just gives such a feel of Washington history and the lobby and rooms are filled with details from an earlier, more gracious, era. I know many people prefer modern sleek hotels, but this is to my taste. The view from our window was of Rock Creek Park and was very pleasant. The only glitch we had was that our room was not made up one morning, but when we came back and called the front desk, they responded immediately and had the room made up while we were out at lunch. Also, the hotel's location in Woodley Park is great -- we walked across the bridge into hip Adams Morgan, and since the hotel is at an entrance to the Rock Creek Parkway, it was less than 15 minutes to the Mall and downtown. The residential area is quiet and beautiful, and has many interesting restaurants in the immediate neighborhood. We will try to stay here in the future, and we will also investigate booking directly through Omni instead of priceline -- like other hotel chains, Omni is discounting rooms to compete with the direct booking services.
"Get a room (on a low floor)!"
I stayed at the Omni Shoreham during a business conference. Nice property, very friendly staff and a comfortable room. My main complaint is the lack of elevators. Basically 4 VERY SLOW, very small, obviously old elevators for a hotel with something like 900 rooms. I (and many others) spent a great deal of time waiting on the elevators. Better to ask for a room on a low floor and take the stairs. My room was comfortable, but the bathroom was very small. The toilet was placed in such a way that I had to sit at an angle. The room was almost too large in comparison. Even with a king-sized bed, dresser, chair and desk, there was so much open space it seemed as though you could fit a second bed and still have plenty of room. The conference facilities were very nice but laid out in a very unwieldy manner. Lots of stairs to navigate and no real rhyme or reason - as if that part of the facility was designed by committee. The neighborhood around the property is very nice with many great restaurants within a few block walk. I would not go out of my way to stay at the Omni but if there was a conference held there, I would attend and stay at the property.
"Always a great place to stay..."
Our stay was, as ever, delightful. Good sized rooms, comfortable bed, excellent shower. Staff helpful and courteous. Just a really professionally run and managed hotel. Great location if you're not needing to be downtown - and the subway is just round the corner.
