“Mixed bag”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Really mixed bag of thoughts on this place.. maybe expectations exceeded actual...mix of old and new in the room...and transitional work seemed. Very dyi...beds comfortable but seemed smaller...tv's newer but remotes ancient and barely working....hotel was very busy and could hear comments in regards to underage drinking with large group in atrium ..liked the cookies..lol

I wanted to personally thank you for staying with us and for taking a moment to review your experience on TripAdvisor. I do want to apologize that you heard about underage drinking while staying here. Unfortunately, we did have an incident in one of the sleeping rooms that involved this behavior and I was very proud of our staff members that recognized the situation, took the appropriate actions and for the Police officers that handled the situation as effeciently as possible. Once again, I do thank you for staying with us and for your comments and if I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Very disappointing. Upon check in I was told the pool & hot tub were getting renovated & would not be available (it was one of the main reasons I chose them in the first place). I found the suite to be very outdated, the 80's called and wanted their pictures & living room furniture back.
I did not feel safe because the entry to the room is a big glass French type door. Also, in the bedroom there is a sliding glass door leading to a public balcony that goes around the building and my view from it was a run down Asian restaurant with writing on the roof.
The food was horrible and the worst part was in the morning when they double charged me. My company had already prepaid for the room & then they also went and charged it again to my personal credit card that I gave them for incidentals. It took 4 phone calls for me to get it resolved. The girls at the front desk were nice enough but they were young (college age) and should not have had to handle the complaint, the manager should have called me.
Overall I was disappointed, it was by no means a dump, but I expected more for the money. I will not go back there next time I'm in town.

I recently stayed at the DoubleTree Suites while the U.S. Figure Skating Championships were in Omaha.

The hotel is very easy to find...just a few block north of I-80. I arrived at just about 3:00pm and there was no waiting for the room. The check-in process was seamless, the staff courteous, and I was offered in 'Hilton' fashion a warm chocolate chip cookie.

The suites are quite spacious complete with living area, small kitchenette, bedroom, and bathroom. The decor was fairly modern, the room very clean, and plenty of space to spread out. Both the living area and bedroom feature flat screen HD televisions. The bed was very comfortable with clean white linens and lots of pillows. The sofa in the living room was a bit dated but that was one of the few drawbacks I could mention about the room.

One of the things I didn't care for about the room is the shared balcony space outside the bedroom. There are large sliding doors that lead to a balcony outside however the balcony is accessible by everyone on your floor. At anytime someone could pass your room. I kept the blinds closed which mitigated the issue but limited the natural light in the room. Another was the internet. The internet worked free the first night (you login in with your Hilton HHonors information) but then was 9.95 a day after that. Kind of steep...but the internet was very quick.

The actual hotel itself looks a little drab from the outside. Some minor work to the hotel exterior would make it sing a bit more. When you walk inside you actually walk into a huge atrium complete with living plants and trees. The hotel features a small bar and restaurant (I never ate at the hotel so I cannot comment on the food) which seemed well frequented in morning and on the nights during the weekend I stayed. You can actually see each room from the atrium as each floor has an inward facing hallway with access to each room. There are two large glass elevators that easily transport you up. There was a small exercise room that I noticed with treadmills, weights, and other exercise accessories. there was also a small pool and jacuzzi.

The hotel sits right off of 72nd Street which has lots of restaurants and shopping centers nearby. There is convienient access to downtown via I-80 to I-480. I actually found it easy to get downtown by simply driving down Dodge Street and avoiding the Interstate. Travel time from the Hotel to Century Link Center was less about 15 minutes.

Parking was available for free and I was able to park where I could see my car.

I stayed Thursday thru Monday. While Thursday and Sunday night were very quiet, Friday and Saturday appeared to be busy nights. The hotel was noticeably louder these nights. In the bedroom of the suite you caouldn't hear the noise but in the living area you definitely could. Seemed to be a lot of activity outside the rooms pretty late into the night.

Overall I was very comfortable and would easily stay here again if in the area. Again, the rooms were comfortable and the location right. If Hilton would spend the time and money to get the outside of the hotel a refreshed look, wrk on some landscaping, and some minor tweaks to the inside decor and furnishings, this would be an astonishing hotel. As it, it still is quite comfortable.

Room Tip: Seemed quiter the higher up your room. If your looking for silence, request a room on the 6th floor...

One of the best things about a hotel of this type is the room size. We found the suite to be very spacious for our one night stay as well as being well appointed. We arrived after 11pm and the front desk staff was considerate in providing a quick and easy check in process along with their famous warm cookies. Our room was on the second floor with a king bed. Here are our positive and negative comments about our stay:

Negative:
1) Breakfast buffet is way too expensive for what you get. I believe we paid $15 per person and was adequate at best.
2) Bed: very soft. One of the hallmarks of any hotel is their bedding and we were really surprised in a bad way to sink into the mattress. I would have expected something on par with a Heavenly Bed but we were wrong.
3) Lack of hanging space. A true closet would be helpful rather than just an armoire. No place to hang a long overcoat.

Positives:
1) Very helpful staff! We requested a late check out and there wasnt even a pause by the front desk in agreeing to do so.
2) Well cared for fitness room. Good equipment and was empty when we used it.
3) Great selection of newspapers: local Omaha, USA Today and WSJ.
4) Easy and free parking.
5) Central location we were downtown in 10 minutes.
6) Very clean and well appointed areas.

We would not hesitate to stay again and hope the mattresses are replaced by then.

Room Tip: Ask for a room farthest from the elevator as their are windows on the hallway side of the suite so l...

We have stayed at this hotel quite a few times over the past years, and absolutely plan on returning (!). One huge reason why is for the staff & service... we've been so pleased, each and every time. We have seen many of the same faces there over the years, and they have been delightful and very accommodating (truly above & beyond). The value of receiving 2 rooms for the price of 1 can't be beat. I disagree with other reviews that say the hotel is loud; this has never been the case for us (and we stayed on the 1st floor our last trip over the busy holiday season). I find the beds wonderfully comfortable and though I don't care for the Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries the rest of my family does. The location is convenient, we love that it has a pool and fitness center too... and did I mention the great service, all around?

We stay her with my small children when we visit my in-laws because we can put them to bed and close the door to the bedroom and still watch tv or socialize with the family. The service is always great. The hotel is a bit outdated and could use at the very least a new couch in the rooms, but the beds are comfortable and there are two flat screen tvs and the bathroom amenities are Crabtree and Evelyn. Overall this hotel is perfect for our family as it gives us a lot of room for a reasonable price. The one weird thing about this hotel is that it tends to have a lot of partiers. There was an actual party in one of the conference rooms one night we stayed for a nurse's association, and there tends to be big groups that stay there (with or without kids) so that there is a lot of traffic in the hallways and at the pool.

Room Tip: With the first floor you hear a lot of foot traffic to the dining area/restaurant and pool. Higher...

I stay at they doubletree suites every time I come into Omaha which is at least once a month. The service at the front desk is always polite and quick to respond when I call for anything.
