We just had our wedding at the Omni Shoreham this past weekend. I never wanted to have a wedding at a hotel, but then we we starting planning, we realized due to our Hindu/Christian fusion weekend and multiple events (Mehendi, Sangeet, Christian Wedding, Hindu wedding, Reception, farewell brunch) we needed to have a place where our guests could stay and attend all these events. Omni was perfect. It has so many unique and beautiful ballrooms that it felt like each event was at a completely different location! It was a simply magical place to have a wedding. Our guests were treated so well all weekend as were we. We worked with Dom from Omni who was fantastic. Always responsive, very professional, and treated us so well for the weekend. Kara, our room block manager, worked miracles on our behalf. Our guests have rave reviews of their stay there. The grounds are also beautiful whether you have your wedding there or just some photographs. If we could do it all over again, we would choose the Omni every time. Especially if you are having a Hindu wedding and all the specific things that come with that (outside catering of Indian food, fire, etc) they are so accommodating. Strongly, strongly recommended.

The professionalism and dedication of almost everyone on the Omni staff toward making our big day "picture-perfect" stands as one of the most memorable aspects of our wedding -- not just for us, but for many of our guests as well. Dominic and Herb were nothing short of outstanding -- from the very start of the planning process through our actual wedding day.

They helped to shape our vision for that day, and once we had formulated it they meticulously went above-and-beyond the call of duty to make that vision a reality. We cannot possibly say enough about the entire catering department. The food and service were everything you'd expect from a luxury hotel.

The only shortcoming we experienced at all was with a block room reservation for a key member of our wedding party -- which was handled quite poorly through a series of snafus that really never should have happened at all. But we realize that was probably one of those rare flukes that almost never occur. All in all, booking the Omni Shoreham as our venue was among our very best choices that we made.

We just celebrated our daughter's wedding at the Omni Shoreham. We worked with Michael Schneider. From the first phone call last August 2013 to this past weekend's magnificent experience, Michael was fabulous to work with. He was generous with his time and ideas. He was enthusiastic about our wedding planning process and flexible as we decided which ballroom, which menu, which guestrooms, and all the other thousands of decisions that you make as you approach the big day. Most of our guests were from out of town and made a holiday of the weekend. We all felt like we were at a destination wedding in the middle of Washington, D.C. Our guests all loved the hotel and commented repeatedly on the friendliness of the Omni staff.

The venue is gorgeous. It doesn't hurt to have Mother Nature on your side in the middle of August! At both the cocktail hour and the reception, the food was delicious and the service impeccable. We would highly recommend Michael and the Omni as you plan your wedding.

Dom Sanchez was amazing to work with. He really did an A+ job! He was quick to get back to any emails we had through the whole process and on the day of, he made sure everything looked amazing and ran smoothly.

As well, the gentleman (I think his name is Herb) who assisted us with everything during the reception (told us where to walk, handed the microphone to people, told us how to cut the cake feed each other, etc.) was AMAZING as well. He really made sure everything ran smoothly.
Both my husband and I were really impressed and we would recommend the Omni Shoreham to anyone who wants a beautiful location, great food and great staff.

Our wedding at the Omni Shoreham in October was perfect. The gardens in the back of the hotel proved to be gorgeous for pictures. Dominic, the wedding planner, was always available to answer any of our questions, and did so promptly! The venue itself was beautiful, and the hotel provided very nice linens and catering as well. The catering staff went above and beyond on our wedding day to make sure all of our guests had what they needed, and gave extra attention to the bridal party as well. We received many compliments from our guests about how beautiful the ballroom was and how amazing their dinner tasted! The entire process was seamless from start to finish, and we look forward to going back to the Omni each year and reminiscing about our amazing wedding there. Thank you to everyone at the Omni for a very special evening!

"Wow, wow, wow!" Those were my words when I first saw our beautiful wedding reception at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. Everything at this venue is absolutely top-notch. The ballrooms are gorgeous, and our guests are still talking about the food. Above all, the service was incredible. The staff at the Omni Shoreham truly went above-and-beyond for our wedding, from the moment we first toured the venue. I still daydream about our beautiful reception. Worth every penny.

When I first walked in to the Omni and saw the gazebo and garden in the back, I thought there would be no way I could afford this place and the gazebo could not possibly be available for me to book. But it was! I worked with Dominic who was absolutely fantastic in working with us on picking a date and room that worked for us. Every little question we had - small or large - was answered promptly and clearly. Dom was so easy to work with and made us feel special. The food was amazing - all our guests commented about how good the food was and how beautiful the outdoor area was. It was truly a dream come true. Thanks Dom!

I gave the Omni 5 stars, but I will comment on having a couple issues with the hotel room block - in which some of our guests got mis-informtation about the hotel block being full when it was not and guests being entered for two rooms instead of one.

If you are looking for an outdoor area in the city with a quiet atmosphere - this is your place. The gazebo, fountains, garden and patio were beautiful and the rooms were just updated and ours looked fantastic.

The staff at the Omni Shoreham were so gracious, so meticulous with every detail, so tremendous in the implementation of our vision...it was absolutely wonderful! Dominic Sanchez was incredible to work with - he was flexible, visionary, and truly made everything come together in the end that made it a wonderful day. Herb Cupo...well, there is not enough kind words to express my gratitude. Herb was so attentive and unbelievably stealth on the wedding day.
