Magnolia Hotel Omaha
Ranked #3 of 82 Hotels in Omaha
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 21, 2012

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.

We once again stayed at the Magnolia and were completely satisfied with our experience there. Comfortable, Clean, and Friendly! The evening cookies and milk are a nice touch. Great breakfast and a very pleasant happy hour. Magnolia is within working distance of most downtown Omaha eateries, bars and entertainment...lots of art galleries, etc...and if you don't/can't walk, the Magnolia valet service is great!

In after 24 hours of traveling we drive up, unloaded and checked in. Straight to the room and fell into bed. Not overly busy on a Sunday evening and front desk staff very friendly. Bar was open with several patrons. Free cookies at check in. Quiet nights sleep and great amenities in room. Plug ins right by bedsides. Blackout curtains. Big bathroom with nice soaps and a hair dryer. W have stayed here multiple times and recommended to lots of friends. Easy access from airport. Easy to get car from valet. Nice area with lots to do for anyone. Explore a little, you won't regret it. We will be back.

My daughter and I needed to find a room so she could check out Creighton for Graduate School. Wouldn't you know that her only 4 consecutive days off corresponded to the NCAA tournament being held in Omaha. The Magnolia was the only downtown property that still had a room available so we booked it. We're glad we ended up here! The king bed room was quite small but comfortable and very modern. A nice big tv and comfortable bed. The bathroom was quite impressive; I have never stepped up a step into a shower before! The extras were what made the Magnolia so nice: complimentary cocktail hour, warm cookies at the cookie bar and a good breakfast. We used the hotel's shuttle and it was just great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a downtown Omaha experience.

I was nervous booking this hotel because we were traveling with kids. I have done a lot of traveling and I would rate this hotel among the best! So clean and well designed, with lots of great perks like the cookie bar and evening reception. The breakfast was amazing, too! Will definitely stay here again!!
