Our first room was okay, but the door didn't latch.....so we moved rooms because maintenance wasn't there on a Saturday, that is understandable. The woman at the front desk was really sweet and apologetic. We put our belongings in the room then checked the door to make sure it latched/locked, then went on our way. We spent the day shopping and enjoying ourselves. When we came back, around 8:30 PM, and had our dinner. I went to shut the curtains and something like that looked like BLOOD or something was on the sheer outer curtain. It was later and I decided to let it go for the night because we were exhausted and just wanted to sleep, so we didn't touch it and went to bed. Then in the morning, we discovered the conditioner was empty in the shower, and the mount that held the shower products was all broken. This is the least of all the issues, but the towels were absolutely stiff as a rock. Like, I don't know how to even describe them except extremely scratchy or sharp feeling?? At that point, we're getting ready to check out so I held wrote a note for housekeeping to let them know about the issues of the curtain and mount..... and we left. We walked over to Jimmy's Egg for breakfast because if the room is in that state, what is the breakfast area cleanliness going to be? Disappointing to say the least.
The Staybridge on Davenport Street is above average. The staff was friendly, the room spacious, the bed comfortable and the breakfasts and happy hour (drinks and meal) were commendable. The only reason we gave this hotel an an overall rating of average is the cleanliness. The halls espically needed a good cleaning.
The hotel was very busy the days we stayed. We will consider staying at the Staybridge the next time we're in the Omaha area.
