We live in Cleveland Park and wanted a "destination wedding in the neighborhood" and the Omni delivered. Bryan Stiffler was absolutely fabulous and made everything run flawlessly. We had the most amazing weather for an outdoor wedding in August. We had about 100 guests, so we used the Diplomat ballroom and it was perfect, guests could come and go from the ballroom to the outdoor terrace to the patio with fire pit so easily. An unforgettable wedding! We are still getting thank you's, texts and emails two weeks later from guests telling us how amazing everything was.

We hosted our multi-cultural wedding weekend at the Omni and had all of our expectations exceeded in a huge way. The venue itself is incredible - aside from being a historic property in DC, the numerous ballrooms for our cocktail hours, Indian wedding ceremony, and reception, outdoor gazebo for our western ceremony, and driveway for the baraat were all perfect. But what made the event really phenomenal in our eyes was the staff, led by Bryan. His attention to detail and hyperfocus on making sure that the couple and families have the best experience are unlike anything we have seen. From the time he came on board, through the wedding, he was responsive, present, and always found a balance between just making our wishes happen and presenting creative and improved ideas of his own (or just surprising us). On the day of he was everywhere at all times, and again, not just for the couple but for the entire family as well. The little details and touches really made our day. His talent flows through the rest of the team at the Omni, as every member of the staff who we dealt with treated us like royalty and made sure we had everything we needed at all times. Herb was with us in the evening and for the after party and was fantastic in bringing the night to a close on a high note. In addition to our own catering, we had the Omni prepare a few hors d’oeuvres and a few plates for the dinner, all of which were delicious. Weather presented a little bit of a challenge for us early in the day, but everyone at the Omni supported us and worked tirelessly to make the day beyond anything we could have imagined.

Our wedding reception and cocktail hour at the Omni was truly special! Kylan, our catering manager, was extremely thoughtful and thorough and was an amazing asset prior to and during the big day. Our passed hors devours during cocktail hour were perfect and inventive and truly pleased ALL of our guests. The room was set up was exactly as discussed and Kylan went above and beyond went our cake failed to arrive. I recommend this venue highly!

We recently had an outdoor wedding at the Omni Shoreham and I cannot imagine a better venue. Bryan, Herb and company were excellent to work with throughout the process, and the results were absolutely tremendous. Every guest we had could not stop commenting on the beautiful outdoor gazebo area, the fantastic cocktail hour and the wonderful room and service we had for the reception. The staff truly cared about our experience and went far above and beyond to ensure that our needs were taken care of, while also making sure that each guest felt special and had a great experience. Kara, our room block manager, did a great job keeping us abreast of how things were shaping up and was able to accommodate us at every turn. The hotel was extremely easy to work with during planning and never said no to any request. Another plus - the food is *excellent*, so you should not feel like you have to sacrifice because you aren't able to do outside catering. Herb gets a special shout out for being such a courteous and gracious host during the night of the wedding - he was absolutely fantastic, and a big part of the overall experience. After the wedding was over, many of our guests remarked that it was one of the better weddings they've ever been to - while I'd like to think it was because of us, it was actually because of all our vendors, with the Omni Shoreham being the biggest of them all. We can't thank them enough, but as a show of appreciation, I hope that you consider them for your big day. You will not regret it.

Dominic Sanchez at the Omni was incredible to work with throughout the entire process. He was an incredibly patient with all our questions and a great mediator between my mother and myself, who often had different visions for the day. Dominic even helped us achieve our dream of having a Venezuelan arepas sandwich bar at the cocktail hour. The venue was beautiful the day of the wedding. We were so happy we chose the Omni!

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.
