We chose this hotel in downtown Omaha for its proximity to the Orpheum Theater and The Old Market. It was a great place to stay, park the car (for $15 per night in the hotel's lot), and just walk the downtown district.
Check in and check out were smooth. The hotel desk staff was very helpful and gave us some tips on restaurants in the Old Market. We did spend some time in the hotel bar and had some rather lacking service there. Even though the bar was nearly empty other than patrons up at the bar (mid afternoon) we sat and waited a good 15 minutes within full view of the wait staff and did not even garner a glance. My husband finally went to the bar to order our drinks and was simply ignored. The bartender then claimed to be hard of hearing (?) I think she had difficulty with her eyesight as well. We returned to the hotel bar later that evening and had the same ho-hum service.
The hotel is a historic building and has pretty interior details. Our room was small but sufficient for a 1-night stay. Gotta say, the bed was WONDERFUL! Such a comfortable mattress and bedding. Went out like a light. Bathroom was small and there was no real dressing area so it would be difficult to have 2 people trying to get ready to go someplace at the same time. No bathtub, just a shower. There was a full size blow dryer that wasn't tethered to the wall and a small single-serve coffee pot. The common areas and rooms were well-cleaned and kept.
Overall, a nice hotel in a nice location.
