How to Get There
We had a discount on a nice suite that had laminate flooring and windows that actually opened, very cool. Had we not had such a good discount we would have stayed elsewhere. Walked to starbucks for breakfast it was cheaper than other options and a good way to start the day. Parking is a nightmare at this hotel. We self parked and it was confusing and even after moving car in the morning and feeding meter we still received a ticket. The staff was not very helpful when it came to asking questions about the area. My husband felt the architecture/ decor was cold and uninviting. I felt our room was clean but as mentioned it was lacking in warmth. It’s an old hotel located across the street from the theater so if you’re going to a show this would be a great place for a nights stay. Chips and snacks in the room were expired that’s pretty obvious that little details are often overlooked. My advice, don’t pay full price to stay here you could have a better stay elsewhere for the same amount of money.
We arrived early in Omaha and inquired at the front desk whether our room was available. The response from the employee, to my chagrin, was flatly “there are no rooms available.” There was no initial greeting or offer to call when one was available, basically you’re out of luck “come back between 2-3pm.” Not the way to start things out, specially from a so-called four star hotel.
While the exterior and lobby were very well kept, our room didn’t match up. Wallpaper was falling off the wall, the air conditioner had one setting (62 degrees), the shower door leaked — leaving a large puddle of water on the bathroom floor, and the small 32” TV did not suffice the size of the room.
The windows were as old as the building itself (1930), and thus you heard everything happening on the street. I actually thought the windows were open do to the fact I could clearly hear conversations on the sidewalk from our fourth floor room as if I was a part of them myself.
At 9am housekeeping was knocking on the door (recall our room wasn’t “available” until 2-3pm). I asked her to return later, which she kindly agreed, although the do not disturb sign wouldn’t hang on the handle because it was so mangled. Might sound minor, yet not the type of attention to detail issue you find in four star hotels.
Ultimately our short stay was uneventful, yet the unfriendly employees at the front desk and the lack of detail did not match the price — therefore two stars.
First, this is Nebraska, so considering the landscape, do not expect the same sort of modern hotel you'd get elsewhere in the USA. Second, the service is okay, not great. They seemed rushed and generally disinterested in helping out the customer, but they did give us a drink coupon which was nice. The room was nice, beds were comfortable and shower was fantastic, HOWEVER, there was dirt and dust built up around the window. Valet is also 22/23$ which for one night, I was hesitant to pay, but oh well. For one night, this sort of cheap hotel disguised under modern aesthetic is fine, it does the job especially if you care that your trip to Omaha looks great on your snapchat or instagram.
