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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

Great staff, gorgeous lobby . Comfortable bed. Bathroom needs updating. Bathtub and Fixtures old. Too much water wasted. Near zoo but 1 subway ride from central DC. We got discounted rate of $100 so it was a great value for one night.

Simply the best. Old world elegance with modern conveniences. Close to Metro, restaurants and walking distance to Adams Morgan and DuPont Circle. Rooms large, spacious, beds are great but internet is slow.

The public areas at the this hotel are still very impressive. The entry foyer leads into a beautiful dining area. The rooms are ample in size, but they lack any serious up-dating. The toilets look like they have been unchanged since the 60's. The heat and A/C is from a wall unit. The location is good, but certainly is not... More

Stayed here back in June for a conference I was attending at another hotel. There rooms was wonderful, very clean and comfortable. The elevators in this hotel are horrible though, it took a lot of time to get one and they are very tight. Overall great stay though.
