Although Omaha is not a huge city and nothing is too far away when compared to traveling in a place like Los Angeles or London, there are still locations within the city that are more convenient than others. The Sheraton Omaha is very well located at the intersection of two major roads, within the immediate area of more than one shopping mall, upscale shopping area, and many restaurants. Downtown Omaha is only 10 minutes drive in one direction, the westernmost suburbs a 10 minute drive in the opposite direction and the airport & zoo within 10-15 minutes as well. The hotel is much nicer inside than it appears outside which is pretty plain and simple. We've stayed at the hotel 3 or 4 times over the past 18 months and have always found it to be very clean and well appointed. If you're a Starwood member and have access to the Club Level floor, the Club room (cocktails, appetizers, breakfast as well as business needs, large flat screen TV, etc.) is at least as nice as any of the other Sheratons I've been to, if not nicer. If you're going to Omaha for business or with family I would recommend this Sheraton.
