My husband and I recently stayed at your hotel as part of my birthday celebration! EVERYTHING about our stay was perfect. Upon check-in, the staff upgraded us to a suite since it was my birthday, the room was exceptionally clean, elegant and welcoming. Loved the lounge reception before the hotel shuttle took us to our dinner destination at the Old Market. The shuttle home was perfect as we'd celebrated! Great sleep, nice breakfast before the trip home. Staff was superb and helpful. Can't wait to come back! Cheers, Lynn M.

Hey Lynn M,

A couple things to start -
First off, Happy Birthday again, and secondly, when's your next birthday?

We're assuming it's a year from now, (math!) - we're only asking because we want to be there again to make it just as awesome as this year's.

You didn't have to write this review, or notice how much we care about making our guest's special occasions even more special, but you did. And for this, we thank you.

We'll hopefully see you next year and until then, many happy returns.

Cheers,
Ryan

I wanted to like this hotel, I really liked the name, the reviews looked great, and I wanted this trip to be simply fantastic, but none of this was the case. The front desk clerk ignored me for 5-10 minutes while I stood directly in front of him. They advertised free parking and it was $17 to park. The room was renovated but still old in a lot of ways. The TV did not work easily and the selection was very small, the Pay Per View movies were $15 each, a ridiculous price when you are already paying so much for the hotel. The bed was not extremely comfortable, but adequate for an extremely tired person. The main reason I picked this hotel was because of the reviews and because it had a shuttle that could take me to the airport. I double checked that they could take me to the airport when I arrived the first day. The night before I left I checked again to make sure that I could get a shuttle at 5:30 am the next morning. They only had a shuttle run at 4am and 5:45am, but my flight was at 6:45am. The airport is small so I agreed to push it and take the 5:45 shuttle with the assurance that it would be on time. I was in the lobby at 5:30 and there were two other people waiting for the shuttle with me. I overheard the front desk lady say that the shuttle was running late. I went over and asked if I had heard correctly and she assured me that the shuttle would be on time. Ten minutes later we were told that the shuttle would arrive in 5 minutes. 5 minutes later, at 5:50, the front desk lady came over and said that it would be at least 15 minutes until the shuttle could pick us up, but that she could get a taxi to us in 5minutes if we would like split a taxi fare. We agreed to take this course of action and I was the last person to board my flight, thank goodness they let me board. I do not appreciate the the hotel promised a shuttle ride and then did not even offer to pay for the short taxi ride when the shuttle was late.

In short I would avoid this hotel because of its extremely rude staff and the discourtesy of the shuttle fiasco.

The bar tender is the exception to the rule, and is a very courteous and adept staff member.

Room Tip: Higher floors because the hotel is above several busy streets

I had a highly enjoyable stay. I was treated warmly by each employee that I encountered. The doorman wished me a good day every morning. The room was beautiful and exceptionally clean. I enjoyed the evening reception in the lounge; wine by the fireplace each night, what a treat! I really don't know what could have made my stay more pleasant. I will definitely choose the Magnolia the next time that I travel to Omaha.

Hey Megan,

Well now what do we do? Your review was so nice, we had to share it with our staff - but now our doorman misses you, our comfy lounge misses you, the wine and fireplace have threatened to leave if you don't come back. Now what?

I'm kidding, but I am serious about you being nice. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us and the next time you're in Omaha, you can be assured of the same treatment. It's just what we do. We hope to see you soon.

Regards,
Ryan

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.
