About Omni Shoreham Hotel

Sometimes a hotel just gets it right. Conceived during the roaring 20's, the Omni Shoreham Washington DC opened its doors in 1930 and spent the next many years welcoming world leaders, presidents and celebrities into its glamorous arena. In 1964, the Beatles took an entire floor for their first performance in the states. Clinton played his saxophone here at his inaugural ball. Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Bob Hope all performed in these rooms. In more recent times Julia Roberts filmed parts of the Pelican Brief at the Omni. And the list goes on.

Sitting on 11 acres overlooking Rock Creek Park and boasting 836 guest rooms, this grand dame of hotels, beautifully remodeled through the years, awaits exhausted parents seeking a comfortable resting spot after hours of sightseeing.

The Omni's history is impressive, sure, but there's so much more to this hotel than just yesteryear stardust. To begin, there's the super close location to the National Zoo and, a little further away, the Washington National Cathedral. Then there's the place's golden-era resort feel with its country hideaway style, the inviting outdoor pool, kid's pool, hot tub, small spa and well-appointed fitness room. The fine dining restaurant and elegant lounge add to the old world charm.

Last there's the many small personal touches sprinkled throughout a family's stay at the Omni. When you first arrive the kids are welcomed with colorful backpacks bursting with toys, a water bottle, a flashlight, licorice and more. Later that evening, with a light tap at the door a silver tray appears holding large chocolate chip cookies and frosty glasses of milk for the kids.

Parents will love a stay at the Omni for the elegance and location. The sumptuous lobby, laden with long stem roses, sits beneath six beautiful chandeliers. Kids, if they're anything like my two boys, will always refer to the Omni as "that pretty hotel that gave me a flashlight."
