The four-diamond Omni Shoreham Hotel is nestled on 11 acres in picturesque Rock Creek Park in northwest Washington, DC and is only steps away from the National Zoo.
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.
All hotel staff has been superb, taking good care of all guests that could not leave because of "Sandy", customer service at its best, thank you!
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 hotel! The staff was very nice and the rooms were sparkly clean. Beds are super comfy, snuggle in and have a good nights sleep.
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.
Great hotel, the wifi is okay if you are in the correct room. The hotel has a great style and the beds are great.
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!
The rooms are super comfortable and the hotel is in a great location with the metro stop only a short walk away!
Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean, staff is pleasant and the free wifi with select guest program has been great. .
Great hotel - Wifi can be a bit spotty but it's free! Coffee on the room, and great TV selection..
In 1933, the hotel was outfitted with a special ramp and an elevator to accommodate the needs of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Free wifi and morning beverages if you join the rewards club. I love this place I never stay anywhere else in DC.
Thought it great that they have free wifi for loyalty program members. Then found wifi doesn't connect most of time. :(
Great hotel. Very nice rooms, great rates,friendly staff. A five-star experience at two-star proces.
This is not just a beautiful hotel, but also a union establishment with employees who make a living wage. Please patronize!
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.
Another fantastic historic Omni property. Great location with food options and bars nearby.
The food is the bomb! Order the Lemon Seafood Fettuccine! Best Seafood that I have ever had!
The Metro station is just right across the street from here, so transportation will be convenient.
If ordering room service, I highly suggest the Crab Cake sandwich and mac n' cheese. Not the healthiest, but absolutely delicious.

To celebrate the inauguration of our 33rd President, The Democratic National Committee held a reception for Harry S. Truman here on January 21, 1949.
Great for conferences although the complimentary wifi service could improve!
Terrible parking. Otherwise, a very beautiful hotel. Check out room 870, it's the Ghost Suite.

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.
If you want to sleep past 6 a.m. Then stay somewhere else. But the pool is wonderful!!
Enjoy the beautiful gardens, patio and of course the hotel itself.
Wife and is stayed or 3 days, had an excellent experience. Will return again.
Apply for Select Guest member beforehand. It's free and enjoy extra benefits such as free wifi in rooms!
