“Comfy”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a great hotel! Every employee was very friendly and helpful. It's the little things there that are nice; cookies & milk in the evening, wonderful breakfast, cocktail reception. Room (single Queen) was a bit smaller than many hotels, but still nice (& clean). I thought it was so wonderful that each employee received a gingerbread house to decorate, then they were all put together as a village just inside the lobby! The employees were very proud of their work & they should be. The only thing negative is the parking. There is minimal parking on the streets, so the Valet is almost a must. (the price is $17/per night!). The shuttle is wonderful and will take you anywhere within almost a 3 mile radius. But overall, the employees were so happy to work there and it showed.

We were married at The Magnolia Omaha in November of 2008. We go back at least once a year because the service is always the best in town. The lounge is a great place to grab a glass of wine and relax and the rooms are perfect for a romantic getaway.

Great Room. They had free breakfast, a free social hour in the evening and milk and cookies. They also have a workout room in the basement. Room was clean and very modern design. Love this place. Will stay here on my next trip.

I regularly stay at the Magnolia when in town on business.
The atmosphere is not the traditional chain hotel like a Hilton....very cozy and a little old school, but with all the things you need for a great nights stay.
The Magnolia is the only Hotel I don't sit in my room to work, I spend it in the Lounge....very nice and functional.

The only negative....I can hear the person in the room next to me snoring...I think his headboard shared the same wall as mine.

Hey David M,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. You dig our lounge and you use it to get work done, you dig the cozy vibe, you caught the "old school" flavor, but the Snore Monster was in the next room.

Well, we can statistically assure you that the next time you stay with us, the Snore Monster won't be in the next room. And numbers, like you David, never lie. If that happens again, give a call down to the front desk, and we'll do our best to arrange a good night's sleep for everyone.

Thanks again for the positive review and we look forward to your next stay with us.

Best,
Ryan

The majority of my experience was great! A great venue and very helpful staff. One thing: Don't put the person who doesn't know how to make drinks behind the bar...

I ordered a sandwich and parmesan fries, ended up with sweet potato fries. A trivial thing, but there were only four customers there at the time so I don't think it was an overwhelming order...

Hey riflemanHouston,

Thanks for taking time to review our hotel. From what I gather there was a potato mix-up and you got some drinks that didn't quite do it for you, but other than that your stay was good. This is all addressable and usable info. Your feedback helps us improve so thank you.

Next time you're in town, stop by and give us another shot - tell us exactly what you're looking for and we'll do our best to whip it up.

Cheers,
Ryan

Very nice hotel for our one night in Omaha. We had dinner in the lounge and a free cookie. Both very nice. It was nice and quiet. I had no complaints. Valet parking was very convenient and the valet took the time to scrape the ice off the car in the 12 degree weather.

Lynn,

You didn't have to review your stay with us, but you did.
Well, we wanted to thank you for it. The ice on the windshield thing, that's our favorite thing to do. Thanks for dropping us a line.

Continue being awesome.

Such a beautiful historic building, I fell in love with the marble floors, the Lobby ceiling, and the many arches. The lounge was comfortable and inviting, and the patio is something I want to visit next spring! Our room was large, and had character. I didn't hear any running water sounds like people taking showers or flushing of toilets, and I didn't hear anyone in the halls. It was nice to be able to enjoy the quiet! The front desk was very quick to respond to any request, with no waiting at check in/out. The staff was friendly and enlightening, and the Valet parking was exceptional. I am looking forward to staying here again in the near future. Thank you for making this an unforgettable experience.
