Well located with great staff. Neighborhood has developed well from the old Aksarben race track days. Easy access to the major roadways around Omaha. We stay here on a regular basis. Our grandsons always enjoy the pool.
I'll preface that my thoughts on this hotel are really based on what one would expect from a hotel of this class. Nothing against Courtyard or Marriott in general - but I've been a a number of Courtyards throughout the country and this was not the greatest experience.
Starting with positives. Check in was good. Really nice and cordial woman at the front desk already had my key ready. I had checked in via my mobile app for Bonvoy - which makes things easier.
Next, the room. Not great. Flushed the toilet and it kept running for about 20 minutes. Notified service about the issue which I'm assuming that they have resolved. Room smelled like cigarettes/cleanser - which is a HUGE sticking point for me. Room seemed a little dated in decor.
Sleep quality was ok. If you are looking to stay warm, it might be a little difficult as the bed coverings are a little thin.
In terms of location, it is a good spot for those that are looking to be near the U of N - Omaha campus. Easy access to the conference center and other buildings.
Overall, I may not choose to stay here again - mainly because of the smell. It is my biggest pet peeve.
