    The rooms are nice. And the garden is beautiful. With that being said. If you stay with your pet, they say if your pet has too many complaints they reserve the right to kick you out. Not cool.

    Clean and comfortable home base for the family vacation in DC. Very convenient to the metro and friendly little restaurants in the neighborhood. Rooms are large, quiet, and secure with comfy beds.

    Cheaper parking options in the area. Overnight hotel parking is $41+ incl taxes. There is public parking on Calvert a few blocks away for $20. Or park on street. Tickets are $30 if you stay 2+ hours.

    Beautiful, historic hotel in lovely area of DC. Staff is fantastic, especially the hot bartender Bo from Georgia. Highly recommend staying here as there is easy access to Woodley Park-Zoo Metro.

    There is only one Omni Shoreham. It's full of history and grandeur. If you haven't been inside, it's a must see. Make sure to check out the garden in the back especially in April.

    Nice Jacuzzi (though could be hotter, good after arriving from the airport) and beautiful garden (with fountain great to sit and have a couple of beers in the evening/night )

    While the front is less-than-impressive, the rear garden is quite scenic and pleasant. Outdoor pool can be warm & busy in summer: just a relaxing pool not a swimming/lap pool.

    Mickey Mantle would lead his teammates to the rooftop of this hotel hoping to see nudity when the team was in town to play. In 1941, the Yankees held a surprise party in room 609D for Joe DiMaggio.

    If you need Internet access, this is NOT the place to stay. 4 the 3 weeks I've been here, it has been a major problem with it going down, not working in some areas etc. Tech support is poor at best

    If wifi is important to you, make sure to ask when you check in for a room with strong wifi signal. Major differences thru-out in ability to connect.

    When you come to the hotel make sure you ask to stay on the 8th Floor, which overlooks Rock Creek Park. Beautiful view of the city!

    Warning: If you check in late at night, they may not have a room for you. Maybe corporate gives them a bonus for overselling -- booting those who get a deal and keeping those who overpay.

    Back garden is a great place for the kids to burn off energy. Beds are fantastic! Breakfast buffet is great! Loved our stay!

    Great rooms. Horrible experience thus far. Front desk does not communicate what they are trying to say. Refused to let us speak with a manager. Overcharged us for incidentals.

    Skip the lobby bar - walk across Calvert to one of the restaurants on Connecticut or 24th. Adams Morgan Metro stop is close - save in taxis and experience the awesome escalator ride!

    Only took 2.5 hours to get on the Internet tonight. Bring lots of reading material if you need to use wifi. And don't hold your breath waiting for the morning juice promised.

    If ordering room service, I highly suggest the Crab Cake sandwich and mac n' cheese. Not the healthiest, but absolutely delicious.

    Call me fickle, but I don't think I should have to sign in to access wifi 12 X a day, & 8 min to load email is excessive.
