Close to everything you want to do. Parking fees are outrageous. Hotel staff are "old school" Reach deep in your pocket for tips. Staff does not let you take your own luggage to your room. Very noisy party downstairs, late into the night on Saturday. When they got Christmas decorations up around the lobby, the improved.

Grand old palace, still offering comfort

Pros: Classic old-hotel ambiance.
Cons: Mattress could be firmer.
Location: Very centrally located, near good dining options. Convenient Metro access.
The Omni Shoreham provides a nice change of pace from the sea of sameness offered by the McHotel chain-type establishments dotting the country. This very large hotel displays photos of some of the many famous guests whom it has hosted throughout the years. What it lacks in up-to-the-minute amenities, it tries to compensate for with gracious ambiance and attentive service. Mattresses could be firmer. Elevators are a bit slow (part, it can be assumed, of the age of the place), but the lobby is magnificent - so take a moment and enjoy the atmosphere. Would stay here again. Location is central and convenient. Would stay here again.

Great location, child friendly, but horrible beds

First the bad review. Omni's beds were so uncomfortable it was shocking. However we liked everything else about it. We loved that the Metro was right across the street. They gave the kids milk and cookies their first night and several nights later had a movie night for them all. Omni is right across an amazing diner, Open City, which is really helpful when you crave something late at night. All in all it was a good stay, just very tiring when we couldn't sleep.
