Do I recommend this place, despite the 3 that I give it? Yes I do, but it's a real puzzle. it should be rated a lot higher. The location is a 5. It is right across the street from one of the best tourist attractions in Omaha, the Old Market. There's an atrium that forms the entire interior of the hotel. Every room opens onto the atrium. And the atrium is great. The Embassy also offers a really nice buffet breakfast with made to order omelettes. What's puzzling is that there are too many annoying things about the hotel. One is that at various times of day, the place is absolutely freezing. Now, I understand that you can't please everyone when it comes to temperature. But Omaha, in the summer, is sometimes hotter than Orlando, Florida. I think that the Embassy sets the air temp for the middle of the day when it's hottest. But that makes the hotel freezing early in the morning when you go down for breakfast and late at night. I guess there's not much one can do about that. But, there's more. The rooms also seem to be set for freezing before guests check in. My room was at 65 degrees ambient when I checked in, and a member of my party had a room that was at 60 degrees ambient at check in. Wow! More puzzles: My poor 84 year old mother-in-law checked into a room with no electricity!! For two hours that meant no AC and no lights in the bathroom. (The entire hotel was booked. So, she had no choice but to wait.) Things like these shouldn't happen at such a property. Finally, and this is really aggravating, one had to use a room card to gain access to the surface parking lot. Only most of the time the cards didn't work! So, you had to seek help from a very rude person at the other end of a call box, or gain help from another guest who was passing by. Ultimately, what I'm saying is that this is basically a good place, but it has issues. You'll have to be a very adaptable person to the conditions. If you are, things will work out. You may actually find this place to be a 4.
