Magnolia Hotel Omaha

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The only positive part of the experience were the hotel staff who were friendly and informative. The thermostat in our room wouldn't work and we had an used towel in our room. Since we had a tight schedule visiting places, we knew our time in the hotel would be very minimal so we made a conscious choice not to complain. Noise travels easily into the room.

The room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast includes hot dishes as well as continental. The location is great. It is close to good restaurants and bars as well as parks and good walking areas. An easy drive to the zoo and botanical gardens.

What a fantastic place to celebrate a special occasion! This hotel has old world charm with modern conveniences. Loved the free shuttle to the Old Market area, the cookies and milk every night, and the delicious breakfasts. There is not a fridge in the room and the wireless internet did not work well.

While we enjoyed our stay, here are a few suggestions for the hotel to make it a 5 star experience: -free parking -fresher breakfast (cold eggs are not appealing) -warm cookies (we went each night at 8:00 and the cookies were not freshly baked) -an ice maker on each floor

Unfriendly front females stuff. ( Exept the Chinese gentleman ). No shuttle available when called at midnight from the airport.

Very average hotel. Needs attention to overall cleanliness of the hotel. Carpet in the hall is stained. Paint needs touching up. Average workout facility. Staff at the front desk have an attitude that it truly is just a job. Mattresses and pillows are horrible. Bathroom door doesn't completely close. Susie is a great waitress in the bar. She was the best part of our stay friendly and helpful. She made sure we were satisfied with our drinks. I will be there again in 1 month for a conference, I wish I was looking forward to going back there.

Loved it! Super clean, very friendly, loved it! Couldn't recommend another hotel more.

Lovely hotel! The staff was so pleasant. My kids (teenagers) enjoyed the milk and cookies and the breakfast was awesome. Nice location too!

The people at the hotel do a lot of nice things for you--free shuttle service, free wine in the evening, milk and cookies, etc. I do wish their computers were free, however, or free for the first 10 minutes or so.

I stayed here when I went to visit my son who works at Union Pacific downtown. The hotel is very welcoming, great price and excellent location. Loved the historic building and modern upgrades along with the lobby, and reception area with breakfast

Could be better if I can open the windows and let fresh air in.

I only stayed for one night, but it was a nice hotel and well priced. I would definitely stay here again.

I'm moving to Nebraska and stayed at this hotel while looking for an apartment. It completely surpassed my expectations. Such a beautiful building in a historic area.

Fun place to stay. Just beautiful old historic building remodled into a elegant place to stay. Good food in the lounge. Close and affordable option to stay near old marketplace. Wish I could've stayed longer!

Nice stay, nice staff, nothing extraordinary, but delivered as advertised.

This was my second stay and it was very pleasant. The rooms are attractive and comfortable and it has more charm than most of the chain hotels in the area. The free shuttle is a nice perk. The fitness center could use an update, but is still functional. Overall I would recommend it.

My stay at the Magnolia was a very pleasant experience. The service was very professional and friendly. The appointments and amenities are high-quality and the overall experience was very good. It is an exceptional value given the reasonable pricing. It remains my regular 'go to' hotel for visits to Omaha. And I am looking forward to trying their locations in other cities.

The hotel staff were very helpful and informative. The cookies and milk in the lobby was a nice touch. The room was small but nice and clean. Only issue we had was the very thin walls. We were able to hear the conversation of the people next door and unfortunately it was until 3 in the morning so it made sleeping hard.

We booked and paid for a King room and we were put in a double. We called down to the front desk to question it and the woman was EXTREMELY rude and told us there was nothing they could do they were all booked up and that's what we get for not booking it directly on their website. After that my husband went to use the bathroom and the door wouldn't close. We again called down to the front desk and requested someone come fix it. It still never worked correctly but at least with a lot of muscle you could close it most of the way. A sliding door for a bathroom is the stupidest thing I've ever seen in a hotel!! The only thing that saved the hotel experience for us was the evening reception and the bartender Chris. He was great!
