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.

"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.

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!

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.
EVERYONE should check out the Omni Shoreham for their wedding venue. You can't go wrong. You definitely get what you pay for. The quality of service is exceptional!

The Omni Shoreham is a perfect venue if you're looking for a combination of an outdoor ceremony and a indoor reception. The garden/gazebo and the empire ball room where our ceremony and reception took place was breathtaking. The staff was extremely helpful from the moment we arrived and my point of contact, Dominic Sanchez and Lori Amery was incredibly responsive to all my emails. They worked extremely hard to make sure all of our needs were met.

I had two tastings to assure that all the food met my expectation and at the second tasting, the chef nailed all of the recipes I provided to them. On the night of the wedding as I walked around to all the tables to greet my guest, everyone was telling us how great the food tasted. After the wedding, the groom and I continued to receive compliments by email about how great the food was. The flavor of the food was very important to me and the catering department nailed it! Some of my guest are already talking about having their future events there because of the location and the food. Thank you for making our wedding amazing!

I was one of those girls who picked their reception site as a child and having my reception here was my dream. The Omni was the first venue we looked at and although I was forced to look at others we all knew this was the place. Everything was absolutely perfect! We started looking over a year out and Lori Amery was amazing from day one. She always kept in contact about everything and the hotel had some coordinator changes while we were planning(we dealt with Haydee at first but then Dominic) but you would never know. Everyone was up to date with everything we had done before the changeover and Lori facilitated it fantastically. As wonderful as the planning was, the day of was even better! Lori, Dominic, and all of the staff were AMAZING. The food was phenomenal. Our guests are still talking about how great everything was and it's 2 months after the wedding! You definitely get what you pay for. I think what made things even more special was their attention to detail. My husband and I had a specialty drink that my husband created and they did everything in their power to make it perfect(and did!). There were a few things that my husband loved as well.. 1. TEMPURA SHRIMP. 2. All he needed to do was turn and the staff were there asking him what he needed(they were super attentive). 3. Everyone was SO friendly and professional. 4. We got plates sent up to the room after the party so we could eat after the event. 5. Did I mention tempura shrimp? I think he was more excited about that than getting married. :) All in all the Omni Shoreham is an absolutely amazing venue and if I could do it all over again I'd still choose to have my reception there.
