I'm a monthly traveler to Omaha. Our company has a rate at a not so nice hotel, so I use my hotel allowance and usually go to Hotwire or Priceline. This time, it was Hotwire to give me a good rate. Quite honestly, even with my travels to the area... I never knew this hotel was here.
Check in process went really well. The staff was friendly and had my arrangements ready to go. My room was one of the rooms on the angle (318) and I had a really nice room and a HUGE bathroom. That part was really cool! The sleep quality was about average, as their must have been some guests on the first night that had a little too much fun at the casino next door. The room was quite nice, and comfortably sized. The bed was comfortable, the internet speed was very good, and LED TV's are always a plus.
In addition, I had a toilet that refilled every hour. I alerted the staff to this on my first night, and when I came in for the second night, it had not been fixed, so I simply shut off the valve. Also, the air conditioner barely cooled to my expectations. (probably about 68 degrees). Sleeping with the comforter on the bed just doesn't happen at that temperature. I wish that their was a fan on switch on the AC as well to help drown out the noise in the corridor.
Breakfast was very good. The kitchen staff were also very friendly, and there was a nice selection of items. The gym area was also very good, but my recommendation is for a 24 hour gym for us early-birds.
Overall, I am scoring my experience as very good, and would definitely recommend the hotel and stay at the hotel again.
Thanks for the Hotwire rate, and hope we are able to make that happen again in the future.
