This grand hotel in Washington is in an ideal location, surrounded by restaurants and markets within walking distance and Omni Shoreham is surrounded by Rock Creek Park. There is a short walk to the Metro Station and Woodley Park Zoo. The rooms can inconsistent in size but the staff are very accommodating. Omni Shoreham is an old building so expect some character and a few cracks here and there. There are a lot of conferences held at Omni Shoreham so it can get very busy at times. But don't let this deter you for a family holiday or break in Washington.
