The hotel

I stayed at the Omni hotel for 5 nights in May and would not stay there again. I received the absolute minimum service level when checking in and problem solving throughout my stay. Breakfast is not included in the steep nightly fee and there was no service on the terrace of the back porch. We even had to pay separately for WiFi (15 dollars per… Read more
I stayed at the Omni hotel for 5 nights in May and would not stay there again. I received the absolute minimum service level when checking in and problem solving throughout my stay. Breakfast is not included in the steep nightly fee and there was no service on the terrace of the back porch. We even had to pay separately for WiFi (15 dollars per day!), which feels very 'cheap' in this day and age. This is very much a 'conference hotel' with several conferences happening at the same time. I'm afraid the scale of it all meant that focus on serving the individual guests is not a priority. Read less

The Omni Shoreham Hotel is spacious, peaceful, and elegant.

The Omni Shoreham Hotel is spacious, peaceful, and elegant. But beyond the well appointed lobby, wonderful grounds, beautiful decor, convenient coffee shop, and comfortable beds, the Omni Shoreham has outstanding service. Kudos in particular during our stay to Sherry, the manager, who took care of us and stored our excess luggage for several days for us. Also, Mr Tulu at the bell desk was very helpful and courteous. Finally, Tran at Robert’s restaurant and the manager there were both very thoughtful during our meal one evening. All in all, a really great stay. We were in town for our daughter’s graduation, and this made a big difference for us. Read less

I booked this hotel thinking it was going to be luxurious, but was disappointed to be met by rude staff and underwhelming service. Right off the bat they made us feel unwelcome when we checked in, telling us the room wasn’t ready, but rolling their eyes when we asked to keep our bags there while we went to explore the city. But the worst was the attendant working the pool area, who was just plain rude and unprofessional, even bordering on confrontational, for absolutely no reason. We were treated like we snuck into the hotel rather than being treated like paying guests. (We didn’t ask for anything from staff or complain once. They just seemed annoyed with all guests in general). I only booked the Omni for the hot tub, which at least didn’t disappoint, but it was annoying to have to sign in on a piece of paper before being allowed to use the pool area and to deal with an impolite attendant every time, who frankly made me uncomfortable with the rude demeanor. We had an easier time getting into some of the government buildings in D.C. than we did the hotel pool we were paying for. The pool bar also was not open, despite the pool area being advertised as fully open for the season starting in May, so there was nothing to drink by the pool. Plus, the housekeeping was sub-par. The beds were itchy, everything was run down, and they didn’t replace the used cups in the room or provide more plastic bags for the ice bucket. I began questioning how clean everything really was after seeing how little they cleaned each day (which was less and less as it went on). They shut off the air conditioning every time they came in to clean as well, so instead of coming back to a chilled room after hours of sweating walking around the city, we were met with a stuffy room each day and had to wait for it to cool down. They also didn’t answer the phone if you called to ask that something be brought to your room, which wasn’t even the biggest deal, but for the price and the Omni’s reputation, I was surprised. We made do without the extra towels we needed, but shouldn’t have had to. I have actually never stayed in such a terrible hotel and I’m not even a traveler who stays at a lot of fancy places. If you are planning a trip to DC, I would only advise to book this hotel for the outdoor pool/the location near the train if you aren’t bothered by bad service and rude encounters. For me, the Omni put a damper on an otherwise great trip, and I would never stay there in the future. Read less

I believe they have the best customer service. The rooms are just perfect for what you need and the hotel was clean everywhere I went.
