Reviewed December 30, 2013

My friend and I were having a girls vacation. I hadn't heard of the Magnolia before, but the price was very reasonable for a higher end hotel so we gave it a shot and booked. The hotel was easy to find and they have a loading/unloading area in the front so you can go check in and find out where to park. They have a valet service for extra $ or you can park on the street at a meter. The meters are free on the weekends so we street parked. We were given an option of wines to choose from upon check in. A complimentary bottle was brought up to our room chilled with 2 glasses. The staff was impressively courteous. The girl at the front desk, Erin, gave us some great restaurant recommendations. There is a complimentary 24hr shuttle service that will take you anywhere you want to go with in a 3 mile radius. That may not sound like much, but you're in the center of downtown so everything is within a 3 mile radius. The complimentary breakfast buffet was delicious and impressive- not just danishes and cold things. There was a full hot spread. We missed the wine/beer social from 530-630 in the lounge but next time we'll be sure to make it. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: Its a older building so the rooms are on the smaller side. Plan for the size of your party according...

Hey Victoria S,

"Impressively courteous, chilled glasses, Erin at the front desk, shuttles, hot breakfast" - if I didn't already know you were talking about Magnolia, I'd want to stay at this hotel you're writing about.

What a great review, what a great time with a great friend! We're so happy we got to make this occasion special for you and we'd love to be part of the next one.

Cheers,
Ryan

Stayed for short getaway the weekend after Thanksgiving. We liked the location, an easy walk to the Old Market area but quiet at night and a quick drive to other attractions. We also enjoyed that this re-purposed space displayed a tenant directory from decade agos when it was a bustling office building. The lounge area with its comfortable seating, fireplaces, newspapers and imaginative cocktail list is a great place to relax. The staff was consistently friendly and helpful. The hot breakfast, cocktail hour and evening milk and cookies that were included as part of the stay made this even more of a value. The only minor drawback was the valet only parking for a daily fee, but in the evening and weekends, street parking is free.

A very historical but well renovated to modern motel in downtown Omaha. Very clean, pleasant helpful staff, and even romantic get-a-way. Walking distance to many shops and restaurants and Omahas Old Market District. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Omaha.

We always choose the Magnolia for our Girl's Weekend trips. If you're a woman, you understand that the girl's trips are all about fun, shopping, food and drinks. We are returning customers because of the helpful staff and excellent services. We appreciate the ideas from the front desk staff and shuttle drivers on where to shop or eat out. We appreciate having the shuttle service available so we can enjoy our nightly outings in the Old Market area. We also enjoy being able to return to a cozy lounge to have an after dinner drink. The rooms are always clean, have comfy beds and great showers. We always look forward to the next Girl's Weekend and never hesitate on where we're staying.

The Magnolia is a beautiful hotel that is very reasonably priced, and has all the amenities a business traveler would need. Incredibly comfy bed, big beautiful shower, wonderful, cozy lounge, and the free breakfast includes eggs, waffles, sausage, etc. Plus airport shuttle service! Love this hotel!!

Travelling a lot this year - and I wish all the places I stayed were as nice as the Magnolia Omaha. On an earlier trip, I changed my flight to go home earlier, so I ended up cancelling my first stay - but having stayed there, I might change my mind next time I'm done early.
