of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
The hotel is a beautiful historic hotel. The location is perfect since it is right down the street from the metro which is clean and very safe to travel to an from the National Mall. We also traveled from the train station via the metro to the hotel. Highly recommend this hotel!
"Nice hotel pricey but normal for D.C. "
Very nice and comfortable hotel. Close walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Two things to be aware of prior to making your mind up: valet parking is $49 per night. An amazing buffet in the morning that gives you everything from fresh local ingredient omelette, breads, cheeses meat. Great but $27 a person. Understandable but just want to make sure you are prepared for the cost. Would return to the hotel for sure. Great and friendly staff.
"A Grand Hotel"
The Omni Shoreham is an elegant jewel in the Woodley Park section of Washington. It’s filled with charm and has a star-studded history of hosting presidents and movie stars. Situated just off Connecticut Avenue and a short walk from the Woodley Park Metro station, the location is ideal. It's even close to the National Zoo While it often hosts large meetings, the hotel never loses its personal touch. The staff provides phenomenal service. The rooms are spacious and have a distinctive feel. Don't miss the chance to stay in this wonderful property, even if your conference is at another hotel.
Large quiet room, great location, excellent service. Staff was attentive. The room was cleaned in the morning and refreshed again in the evening turndown. They even left chocolates on the pillows on Valentines day. Only negative is the elevators can be frustratingly slow, but that's not surprising for a historic hotel. I often found it easier to just take the stairs up to my room even though it was on the seventh floor.
"Grand public spaces, a little old and tired in the room"
I stayed recently in this hotel for a meeting. It is a great meeting hotel. The public spaces are large and grand. The food service for the meeting was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The valet parking service was quick and efficient (expensive, $49 per day, but rather unavoidable if you drive there; no inexpensive self-park options either). My criticisms would be of the room. I was in the east wing. First, the positives. The room itself was very large, with two queen beds, a large walk-in closet, a couple of other pass-through rooms of uncertain purpose (maybe just related to the shape or footprint of the room; one for example was between the bedroom area and the bathroom and was the size of a large walk-in closet). So the overall size of the room was very nice. There was an in-room safe and small refrigerator. Unlike many of these older hotels, this hotel does seem to have good sound insulation room-to-room. You don’t hear much from the other rooms or other floors. And, the floor, while a little uneven in places (in the walk-in closet in this case), was solid and did not creak. The negatives were the following: the carpet looked somewhat dirty (light colored carpet), and a number of electrical elements just didn’t work. The power outlets on the side of the desk did not work. The one at the base of the lamp did work. Another power outlet at the base of the wall had only one out of two plugs that actually worked. The closet had a burned out bulb (at first, I thought I just couldn’t figure out how to turn it on, but it was supposed to come on when you opened the closet door, but the bulb itself was burned out). So, in a higher end place, like an Omni branded hotel, you just expect more attention to detail and more things to work, even in an older vintage hotel. In general, I really like these old classic hotels and am willing to cut some slack. But this one seemed to have more than its share of shortcomings. The final thing was that this was a very warm spell in February in DC, into the lower 70s during the day. The air conditioner would kick on periodically to cool the room. During the night, it would kick on with a rumble and then a roar. Really loud. It woke me up a number of times. I cannot speak to all of the rooms, but that was my experience in my room. I have only stayed here this one time. It was for 3 nights. I would stay here again if I was attending a meeting here. But, quite honestly, if I was on my own and just picking a hotel for pleasure in DC, I would go elsewhere.
