I stayed at the Deco XV while on business in Omaha. As with most cities, downtown lodging is quite expensive, and I was very intrigued by the $118 prepay I found on travelocity.
The decor of this historic hotel is stunningly beautiful. Traditional art deco in the entryway and lobby has been complemented by what I will call "deco nouveau," or art deco with 21st century touches.
To say I was pleased would be an understatement. My King Suite room was immaculately clean, the bed comfortable and the bedding soft and luxurious (but what's with the small pillows that seem to be the trend in hotels these days?).
I also was very impressed with the full-body shower. I was concerned that some reviews here and on other sites had mentioned lack of hot water, but this was not an issue for me. As hot as I wanted, and for as long as I wanted...from the cascading shower head to the six body jets.
I was also impressed with the fleece bath robe in the closet, as well as the slightly larger-than-usual bottles of shampoo, shower gel, conditioner, and hand/body lotion. Cordless phones and two 36" flat screens rounded out the amenities. Missing from the room, however, was a channel guide.
Given that my stay was on a December week night, noise was not an issue for me, however I did notice traffic noise.
The service provided was outstanding, from the friendly greeting by the doorman, to the front desk clerks, to the parking valets. Valet parking is complementary, by the way, as is a Mercedes-Benz shuttle to/from any location in a 3-5 mile radius from the hotel.
The bartender in the Encore lounge was also very helpful, keeping me stocked with ice since the 6th floor ice machine was out of order. The lounge also boasts a beautiful (if not slightly out of tune) grand piano, and beautiful art deco styling.
I was delighted with my stay at this hotel. While not perfect, it is obvious that the staff and management of Hotel Deco XV aim to please, and service is a huge priority for them.
They'll get repeat business from me the next time I am in town.
