For us the Omni Shoreham was a perfect location feeling like a home from home.
We had breakfast once in the hotel as a treat as every day would have been pricey and we love to be urban explorers in the areas we stay in. There's so much choice eating wise around the Omni Shoreham you will be spoilt for choice , I only had one meal I wasn't keen on and that was when we went to some shrimp place and they insisted tieing a bib around us all .
The Omni Shoreham is a 1930s historic hotel , the Beatles stopped there as well as Frank Sinatra . Inaugural balls for various presidents have graced the marble floors and high ceilings. History is embedded very much in this luxury hotel , there's even a haunted suite which the concierge will let you visit if no one is staying there .
There is always a conference cracking off and whilst we were there it was a Nelson Mandela young African leaders conference.
There's a gym which We didn't visit and a pool which we didn't dip out tootsies in .
The Metro( their version of the underground) is only a short walk away and enables you to get about Washington DC with ease.
