Room Reservations

*NOTE* – The Omni Shoreham is currently booked out for several of our core convention nights. You can join the waitlist (see below for more details) or inquire after room shares on our Facebook Group Page or on our Hotel Room Share section of our Discord server. We are currently compiling a list of alternative hotels for your consideration, and will post them here soon.  If there are any other updates they will be posted here, emailed to members, and posted on our social media.

DisCon III has reserved a block of rooms at the Omni Shoreham.  The cost of a room is $169/night plus 14.95% tax (for a total of $194.27 per night) for single-quad occupancy. You can make reservations at the Omni Shoreham via a link on the membership portal.

If our room block at the Omni Shoreham fills up, and you still wish to try and reserve a room, we ask that you fill out this Waitlist Request Form. There is a chance people with reservations will cancel them, or we may be able to reserve another block of rooms. In those events, we will be contacting those people who filled out the form. We also recommend periodically going through the membership portal and trying to reserve a room, as we are not immediately notified when a reservation cancellation occurs. You might get your room reservation faster.

Need Extra Room Nights?

We have room nights in the block for some nights before and after DisCon III’s official dates, and they may initially fill up.  If you cannot make a reservation for all of the nights you want, please make a reservation for the nights that you are available (so you are in the Omni’s reservation system) and then complete this form to request additional room nights be added to your existing reservation.  Facilities will work with the Omni to try to meet your needs.

Suite Requests

The following types of suites are available at the Omni Shoreham:

Presidential Suite – this type of suite has only king beds, but has a dining room and good-sized kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator.  The cost of this suite is $250/night plus 14.95% taxes (for a total of $287.38 per night). This suite also adjoins a sleeping room with two (2) queen beds.

One Bedroom Suite – this type of suite has only king beds, and has a separate sitting area.  The couch folds out to a queen sleeper sofa. The cost of this suite is $189/night plus 14.95% taxes (for a total of $217.26 per night).

Classic Suite – this suite can have either a king bed or two queen beds. The couch folds out to a queen sleeper sofa. While not shown on the drawing, there is a partial wall between the bedroom and the sitting area with openings on both sides to be able to walk between the rooms. The cost of this suite is $185/night plus 14.95% taxes (for a total of $212.65 per night).

Suites can be requested by completing this form.  Once general bookings open and we have an idea of how many requests we have for each type of suite vs. how many we have available, we will determine how suites will be allocated.  If you have an existing reservation for a regular sleeping room, we will convert that existing reservation into the suite if you receive one.

Access

Accessible rooms will be available featuring enlarged door openings and visual notifications for the hotel alarm system and phone. Guests have the option of rooms with a roll-in shower and toilet no higher than 29 inches (74 centimeters) from the floor, or a room with a standard shower and tub. Both have a hand-held showerhead, a standard sink, and grab bars.

At this time, there are no ADA-accessible rooms remaining with two queen beds, and very limited ADA-accessible king rooms available. Additionally, there are no remaining rooms with roll-in showers. If you require ADA accommodations and have not made your hotel reservation yet, please contact access@discon3.org to discuss your needs with DisCon III staff.

WiFi

WiFi is complimentary for those in the Select Guest loyalty program.

Parking

Parking at the Omni Shoreham will be extremely limited. We are serious about this – EXTREMELY LIMITED, which means we will almost certainly run out. Parking is a flat $35 for overnight, any duration during the day, and is valet only.  

One option is either after arriving at the Omni Shoreham and unloading, to drive to one of the following Metro stations and ride the Red Line back to the Woodley Park-Zoo Metro stop, which is around the corner from the Omni (or you can park there first and ride in with your luggage):

Grosevenor-Strathmore: $5.20/day, with departure on a weekend being no charge

Union Station Parking: this lot has a variety of charges, and is also on Metro’s Red Line, a direct connection to the Omni Shoreham.  This lot can also be used for oversize vehicles.

DisCon III is researching other nearby parking options and will provide additional information on this page when we have verified them.

Rooms

The Omni Shoreham has over 830 rooms, which are located in the various towers served by elevators that all provide access to the conference and exhibit space – everything is under one roof.

All rooms feature items like plush robes, marble bathrooms, and complimentary Wolfgang Puck coffee and Tea Forte tea.
