When I travel, the Doubletree brand is one of my favorite places to stay (yes it's partly the cookies), but there is also a common level of service that I can expect.
Until now. The Doubletree property in Omaha went far beyond what I normally expect. First, the scale of the property is much larger and nicer than the 'avg' Doubletree; I surmise that it may have been a Hilton or other in a previous incarnation. It seems they changed the name, but everything about it says 'Hilton'.
At check in, the manager was roaming the lobby and personally greeted me and escorted me to the desk. Later I was in the restaurant (which was good) and there he was conversing with other guests. I must have seen this man at least a half dozen times; it was obvious that this is 'his hotel' and he runs it with pride.
The room was very spacious, especially when compared to other Doubletrees. I rarely eat in the hotels I stay at, but I enjoyed the food in the restaurant and the pub very much. The onion rings were fantastic, but should probably be eaten not more than once a year by anyone over 30 as I am sure they were as fattening as they were delicious. Also, congrats to the pub for their excellent selection of brews.
I previously would stay in the Council Bluffs area when visiting Omaha, but not anymore.
