We got married at the Omni on 4/27/19 and it was perfect! The outdoor venue is GORGEOUS! Working with Shannon and her team was so easy. She was responsive to emails and met with us as much as we liked. We had our dream wedding and our friends and family LOVED the hotel! The room were just renovated and are so beautiful. I would highly recommend this venue!Sent on 05/15/2019

Wedding of our Dreams
We had the wedding of our dreams at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. Leading up to our wedding, we spent our time focused on mechanics, hiring vendors and thinking about things: flowers, food, beverage, music, décor, invitations, ceremony scripts, etc., and we hadn’t honestly given a lot of thought to how much service could matter. Nevertheless, the Omni Shoreham staff brought excellent service and it permeated every aspect of the hotel and our experience. We were blown away.Sent on 10/20/2019
We primarily worked with the Omni’s Kelly Crowley. Our ideas were benefited and enhanced with her experience, leading to a great plan, and she was there on the day-of to make sure it all came together flawlessly. She helped with suggestions for our ceremony entrance, the room layouts, and décor selections. She facilitated our non-traditional tasting and worked with us through all of the other mechanics. She was very professional and personable and seemed to be good at understanding and getting through our pre-event anxieties.
The food preparation and the accommodation of our guest's various dietary restrictions were excellent. The food and beverage team was top notch. Our banquet captain, Herb Cupo, was very kind and attentive, the perfect mix of being in the background and stepping forward and guiding us and taking care of us when needed all the way through the reception. Before the wedding, our cake happened to suffer a minor mishap during delivery, but the Omni had the in-house expertise to perfectly touch it up – with no request or involvement needed from us.
While it might otherwise go without staying, I’ll add that our guests had good things to say to us about their stays and we especially enjoyed our roomy wedding suite. We had great interactions with everyone we encountered working at the hotel, from luggage handlers, to front desk, to housekeeping.

Kelly Crowley was the best coordinator, catering manager, FAQ answerer, and sounding board for our wedding! The Omni Shoreham staff overall was a class act and our day couldn't have went any smoother! They made us feel so special and were busy bees behind the scenes which made the event seem flawless! Our wedding experience at the Omni was perfect. The Blue Room was the ideal size for our 200-person party and the private veranda adjacent to the space didn't hurt! Our guests loved the secluded gardens in the background and our large extended families & friends really enjoyed having the reception and hotel rooms all in the same place. A big perk for us was getting to retreat to the bridal suite prior to the reception to unwind for a minute. We had a balcony that provided the most amazing views of the city plus some of our favorite pics. I would pick this venue again in a heartbeat and loved every second of our wedding weekend at the Omni! -The Metzgers, July 2018Sent on 08/10/2018
Omni Shoreham Hotel's reply:Hi Christina! Congratulations on your marriage! Thank you so much for acknowledging Kelly and the rest of the staff - we are truly lucky to have such a wonderful, dedicated team here. We're very grateful to be a part of your story, and we hope the memories last a lifetime. We appreciate your feedback and we wish you the best in the future!! Cheers!
Without a doubt, the best and most beautiful place to be married in Washington, DC. The elegant, tiered, flowered and magnificently landscaped backyard - buttressed up against Rock Creek Park - is spectacular ... unable to be matched by any location in the city. The patio adjacent is beautifully terraced with trees, and lends itself to the perfect setting for cocktails after the ceremony. Then go inside to the wonderful ballroom for a dinner unmatched. I'm not exaggerating. This is the spot you want! When I get the opportunity to officiate a wedding at the Omni Shoreham, I truly look forward to it. The staff is like old friends, and they provide the couple and their guests perfect service. You will not regret this choice ever!
Omni Shoreham is such a beautiful venue conveniently located in Adams Morgan. I truly enjoyed photographing at Omni. I couldn't have asked for a better venue to shoot at. Their staff is extremely organized and punctual. I highly recommend booking this venue.
