I have a daughter at Creighton, and I've long been looking for the right place to stay when visiting. This place is it, hands down. It is directly adjacent to the Old Market; and while I can't claim to be an Omaha expert after 4 visits, the Old Market seems like the best place for shopping, dining, hanging, etc. And it's a very short drive to Creighton, or just about anyplace else in the city center. Everyplace else we've stayed (including the Doubletree) is in a neighborhood that feels dead and deserted at night, which is no fun.
The hotel is, by and large, pretty cool. A large and elaborate sky-lit lobby, with a bar, a restaurant (which I haven't tried), a mini-Starbucks, sort of a koi-pond thing. A very decent-sized indoor pool and hot tub, which can be great if you're traveling with younger kids. The suites are spacious, and unlike some "suite" hotels, they're really suites, with bedrooms separate from the living area. As others have noted, they're not super-updated (it's become funny to see square-shaped tube TVs!), but they're clean and fine, with good beds, beddings and towels.
There's a better-than-average free breakfast. They charge for wireless internet, which drives me crazy. I'd rather pay an extra 20 bucks for the room then get nickel-and-dimed for ten bucks to use the internet.
