Unfortunately, the good points about this place have little to do with the hotel itself.
It is very close to the Old Market... and the Old Market is a great place. The location is ideal if you are doing business in downtown Omaha, and there is a convenient airport shuttle.
The check in area looks like a bank teller window in a cramped entry way. I know they are tring to maintain the historical integrity of the design, but the check in "window" is inches from the front door. It is not welcoming.
The rooms are very nicely done in a modern chic design. The decor is very nice. This was a high point. The bathrooms were nice, but water pressure was very poor in the shower and the toilet could barely flush.
I can forgive a lot if there is historical charm, but there were a lot of scratches on the wood doors etc. The courtyard looked abandoned, and desolate. This place could be a showpiece but it was just left to look at with not activity there. The elevators were very slow.
The breakfast buffet was okay but they make you eat it in a windowless room with plain white convention tablecloths thrown over fold up round tables. Very odd. All of these windows and scenery available on the property and they make you eat in a dreary room with no decor. The coffee was excellent... however.
The Restaurant Bar
This is the best part of the place. The decor is very, very cool, the space is nice with outdoor seating. John the bartender was fantastic. They also have a free drink happy hour, nice televisions and VERY cool music. They need to let the look and feel of that space linger into the breakfast area.
It is Free... But was very slow in peak periods.
Way too pricey for the experience you get. This would have been more tolerable with a price fitting the quality of the place.
