I stayed at the Element twice this winter for business at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Everyone at the hotel is very helpful, starting with the wonderful shuttle driver who brought me in from the airport. The shuttle is readily available to bring you wherever you need to go in the downtown area or to the airport.
Midtown Crossing is very nice. Nice places to eat, get coffee and get groceries all within a block. The location is very convenient to both the downtown area and to the University.
The room was fine. Comfortable bed. I had two problems with the room. First, whatever cleaning solution they use has a very strong odor, and not a pleasant one. I was having an asthma exacerbation while I was there on the second visit, and I think these chemicals may have made it a bit worse. The other complaint is that the "green" shower head made it hard to take a shower if you did not want to get your hair wet. Instead of a traditional nozzle, the shower head is a large, square, flat shower head which is trying to rain on you. Since the shower comes directly from over your head and not at an angle, it makes it impossible to shower your body without getting wet hair. Annoying for female business travelers. Also, this shower had very low water pressure. Not sure how much water they save if I have to double my time in the shower to get all the shampoo out and soap off.
Breakfast was very good - nothing fancy, but yogurts, bagels, toast, cereal, muffins, fresh fruit and breakfast burritos. It is possible to get a filling and healthy breakfast here in very little time.
It is very nice to have the kitchenette in the rooms along with a grocery store on the second level of the building. This allowed me to make my own lunches and save some money.
Overall, a good visit.
