A good, generally clean downtown hotel within walking distance to a number of restaurants and businesses. Great shuttle service, decent breakfast. On site bar, pool, restaurant, room service. Good views of downtown.

Very friendly staff. Clean room and comfortable bed. In the heart of down town Omaha. We were able to walk to many restaurants. We were there for a wedding at the Paxton and we were able to take a shuttle to the Paxton ball room and we were able to take a shuttle home after the wedding reception. The staff also were more than willing and able to help with all of our requests. Such as a leaky faucet, extra cookies, a wine opener, and extra tissues.

We flew into Omaha for my class reunion. We stayed at the Double Tree because that is where the reunion was held. They gave us a great rate on the rooms. They were very clean and updated. The staff was great, and we used the shuttles to go everywhere. We never had to wait more than 10 minutes to catch a shuttle. I was also told by the Reunion committee members that they were very happy with the catering service. We will stay here the next time we visit Omaha.

Stayed here over the weekend & was pleasantly surprised! I knew it was an older hotel so i was expecting it to be a little run down, but it wasn't. The room i received was huge & the bathroom amentities were nice. I enjoyed the wide open lobby where several groups of people met each night to socialize. The staff was super freindly! The only complaint i had was the breakfast buffet. Not a lot of variety & some of the food was not high quality. I guess i have been spoiled by the buffets in Vegas! The hotel is very close to most of the downtown landmarks & activities. Overall i enjoyed my stay very much!

Food - questionable - got sick after dinner the first night of a week long stay and could not eat the rest of the week; Noise - I know everything about the wife and kids of the man in the room next to me because it sounded like he was in my room; cleanliness - I really didn't want the towels from the person before me in my shower. Need I say more?

Dear traveler,

We are very concerned reading about your food illness and I understand our chef was already in touch with you, being able to demonstrate we had no involvement in your unfortunate food illness. While I am glad to learn you are better, it was very distressing to learn about your other unfortunate impressions. We strive for perfection and operate our hotel with great pride and attention to detail. It is very rare that we get things wrong and I am very sorry to learn you were unhappy. I remain hopeful that you will give us an opportunity to make this right for you. Please contact me at your convenience and I will make this right.

stephan.meier@hilton.com or 402-636-4947.

With our best wishes,

Stephan & team Omaha

Please don't ever waste your money on staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown Omaha. Not only do you pay extra fees for EVERYTHING such as parking, internet, and breakfast; the staff has a lack of accountability. I was trapped in the elevator by myself Sunday morning when it quit working. My several attempts at catching anyone's attention with the alarm button were ignored and when I used the call button, I was hung up on several different times. Finally someone took my call seriously and I'm sure that was only because I was crying very loudly after being hung up on and ignored. When I finally got back to our stuffy room (the A/C didn't work that well), we checked out shortly after this. We were offered a free breakfast to make up for the elevator incident but at that point, I wanted nothing to do with this hotel. We had a stuffy room, paid extra to park our car, walked several blocks to the Old Market District for a drink and ended up driving elsewhere for supper because restaurant at the hotel was closed that night (a Saturday night). The staff at checkout promised that a manager would call and follow up with us because they "felt so terrible" about the elevator problem and promised us a free stay. They took my name and phone number but it's been days and I still have not received a call. I see the management responds to these reviews but please don't expect me to call you. It was "so important" that the hotel had my contact number for follow up, I will not go chasing after you to rememdy the situation. We were given a free breakfast (to go) which consisted of bruised strawberries and dried out bacon. I see by reading other reviews that this seems to be the way the management remedies their mistakes. We got free cookies at check in but that was about the end of the good times. No appliances in our room (you would think for the price we paid we would at least get a fridge) and the Starbucks/gift shop in the lobby was staffed by one person on a Sunday morning so I waited 15 minutes to pay for some simple personal items that I wanted to purchase. As this was my birthday weekend, I feel like I got cheated of a great birthday weekend.

I guess the lack of accountability and follow up by management is the most disappointing of all. I wanted to like this hotel but their actions can speak for themselves.

Room Tip: If you decided to stay here, south facing rooms have the best view and always carry your cell phone...

My stay at the hotel was great. I have to travel a couple times per year and this year my room was perfect. The only thing I would say is that the floor I stayed on was noisy due to other guest and there kids. I was disappointed in the quality of my food at lunch time. My hamberger looked like it was microwaved. It was brown on the out side and edges but bloody raw on the inside. I could not eat it.
