Both have a hand-held showerhead, a standard sink, and grab bars.

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 – not available yet] to request additional room nights be added to your existing reservation. Facilities will work with the Omni to try to meet your needs.

Other Places to Stay
DisCon III is only going to have an official block of rooms at the Omni Shoreham.
Other options are as follows:
Windsor Park Hotel – .6 miles south of the Omni Shoreham on Connecticut Avenue.
The Normandy Hotel – .6 miles south of the Omni Shoreham on Connecticut Avenue.
Churchill Hotel – .7 miles south of the Omni Shoreham on Connecticut Avenue.
Washington Hilton Hotel – .8 miles south of the Omni Shoreham on Connecticut Avenue (across Connecticut Avenue from the Churchill Hotel).
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.
