“Downtown”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The arrival was as expected; great help from valet to check in and checking in was easy. We stayed here for a wedding not knowing the area. The room was nice. The shower was different than I have experienced, you had to step up to enter the shower. The beds were pretty comfy. The room was very clean and cleaned every day. The breakfast and evening reception was nice. The cookies and milk at night were a surprise to a long day. We were just a few blocks to the nightlife. The hotel was just perfect.

I generally hate hotels, but needed to stop through Omaha on a family trip from Denver to NE Iowa. I was pleasantly surprised with the Magnolia after finding it on Hotels.com, at a great rate. Fresh, crisp, sophisticated rooms, pleasant and helpful staff, plenty of free overnight street parking, but also a secured valet lot which made me more comfortable since I was traveling cross country with a fully loaded car. The complimentary breakfast buffet (not just continental), and free milk and cookies in the evening were icing on the cake (and a hit with my kids). While not what one would call spacious, the rooms very very comfortable and what you would expect in any downtown hotel, and I did have a larger room on our return trip--we liked it so much we made sure to stop through on our way back!

My husband and I came to town to go to a wedding. He called and booked the room over the phone. We were told the block was expired even though it was not. The wedding couple had to call to make them let us book under the block. The hotel told us it was a suite. We just arrived it most certainly is NOT a suite. I know we were told it was a suite we booked because the lady told us it was a "king suite" we asked if we could get a "king room" instead to get it cheaper and she said "we don't offer king rooms for wedding parties". So my husband went down to the desk and the girl said "you booked a room and we're out of suites". We are being charged the price quoted for the king suite. She was also very rude to the other desk girl in front of us by telling her not to touch anything. I felt bad for her, she was just trying to help us. When we walked in to check in she ignored us until my husband walked up to the desk to ask what we needed to do. This room is ridiculously small and the desk girl is quite rude. She should not be in hospitality. Additionally we went online and it would be cheaper to book it tonight than it cost for our incorrect room. Blah. Don't come here. Super incompetent.

After reading reviews of this hotel, we booked a queen suite for a weekend getaway. We were completely satisfied. Special touches such as breakfast, happy hour,free shuttle to and from the Old Market, cookies and milk in the evening and free parking on the street on weekends made it even more lovely. Our room was nice, quiet and comfortable, though not too spacious. However the bed was comfortable and all of the staff were polite and helpful.

We pulled in after a long day along I-80. Immediately, the valet greeted me to inform me of some less expensive parking options! He suggested using the meters in front of the hotel in order to avoid the $17 valet charge. Because we are driving cross-country and have an outback packed to the gills with "stuff" we opted for the security of the camera monitored valet lot. But, I greatly appreciated his money saving tip! Note to others: the meters are free from 5:00 to 8 a.m..
Everyone we encountered at the Magnolia went out of his or her way to be friendly and helpful. We appreciated the friendly smiles at the front desk, the clean, well-appointed room and especially the free wine at happy hour after a long day on the road!
The next morning, we had a wonderful, complimentary breakfast and while we were not here long, we definitely enjoyed every minute at this charming hotel.
The fitness room was well-equipped and the location cannot be beat! We walked to the Hollywood candy store, as well as a wonderful happy hour at The Plank. Both, quick walks from the hotel.
Honestly, I cannot think of a reason to not stay at the Magnolia while in Omaha!

After asking the price at reception and telling that booking.com was cheaper, they could not change the price, so I did a reservation on booking.com via the phone.
Also, unlikely most of hotels in US, their queen bed room did not have fridge.
For the parking, parking in public spots is easy and free for the night until 8am.
As for the rest, the room was good and the breakfast quite good in comparison with similar hotels in US.

Way better than either of us expected, turned a quick getaway into a romantic getaway. Location is awesome walking distance to the amazing old market area. We drove up from Kansas City, MO planning on visiting the zoo, fantastic zoo, the hotel is very close to the zoo.when we arrived we were extremely pleased with the repurposed elegance of the old aquilla court house. Every thing was very nice, and made for an amazing getaway.
