Hilton Omaha. Hotel Review.

The stay was nothing special. It was okay.

I stayed at the Hilton Omaha hotel property while I was on business in that city earlier this year. I had never stayed at Hilton Omaha before. It was convenient enough to where I needed to be for business that I did not need a rental vehicle.

I checked in at the front desk after I walked through Iowa from the airport, where I returned a rental car prior to my stay. I was given two bottles of water.

The lobby area of the hotel property includes an open cocktail lounge with a full service bar, which was quite popular while I was there.

Plenty of seating, flat-screen televisions, and even bookshelves with books comprised much of the spacious lobby area.

The seventh floor is the top floor of Hilton Omaha. The unusual view facing west from the hallway was of Interstate 480. It seemed like the hotel property was in the middle of a freeway.

The Room

The room to which I was assigned was located on the seventh floor. The room had a typical short corridor with access to the bathroom and the closet. A comfortable chair with an ottoman was located in a corner by the window.

The king size bed was quite comfortable. I had no problems sleeping in it.

Each side of the bed had a night stand. An alarm clock was on the night stand on the left of the bed.

Located opposite the bed was a unit which integrated a dresser and a desk. A large flat-screen television was on top of the unit. This part of the room appeared to be sparsely decorated.

At one end of the unit was a miniature refrigerator. Above it was a coffee station with a Cuisinart coffee machine. Sweeteners, two small cups of creamer, stirrers, two coffee cup jackets, and two coffee cups accompanied two packets of coffee.

Inside of the closet was a luggage rack, an iron, an ironing board, a safe, a plastic laundry bag, and nine wooden hangers. A full length mirror was affixed to the inside of the door of the closet. When the door was open, the short corridor or the entrance to the bathroom was blocked.

In one of the night stands was a tray with an ice bucket and two wrapped plastic cups. On the wall was a basic thermostat. The room had ample outlets and Universal Serial Bus ports.

The Bathroom

The bathroom was of a typical size of one found in a typical hotel room. Several towels, a box of tissues, and a magnifying mirror were available. The illuminated mirror was nice and large.

The water pressure from the adjustable shower head was good. An interesting piece of art work hung above the toilet.

Affixed to the wall were bulk dispensers by Crabtree & Evelyn that contained:

  • Moisturize + renew conditioner
  • Cleanse + clarify shampoo, and
  • Cleanse + awaken shower gel

Atop a tray on the counter of the vanity were two rolled washcloths, a deluxe shower cap in a box, and a couple of packets of makeup remover wipes.

A box containing a bar of cleansing hand soap by Crabtree & Evelyn was in a soap dish on the counter of the vanity. In one of the drawers was an electric hand-held hair dryer and an extra roll of toilet paper.

The intersection of Cass Street and North 12 Street is part of the view. Blatt Beer & Table is located in the brick building on the right side of the photograph above.

Night time also offered a decent view.

The view included the Charles Schwab Field Omaha baseball stadium…

…as well as the CHI Health Center and Omaha Convention Center — and plenty of parking lots.

Other Areas of the Hotel Property

Breakfast at the Hilton Omaha hotel property was the most ridiculous that I have ever experienced. This article delves into more details about my experience — including the use of a robot to serve food.

I believe that the Castle Meeting Room was once an executive lounge. On the sign next to the entrance were the following words:


The Castle Hotel served as a home away from home for thousands of cowboys and cattlemen, often riding their horses into the lobby to find a room. Stopping in Omaha, they would make their way to the Castle, sometimes the hotel would be so full, and the cowboys would use the lobby floor for their resting place.

Final Boarding Call

The total cost for the room for two nights was $356.45, including all taxes and fees. The base rate for the first night was $132.45; and the base rate for the second night was $169.22. Lodging at a lower cost was available nearby.

The Hilton Omaha hotel property is conveniently located in downtown Omaha. Gene Leahy Mall at The Riverfront, Blatt Beer & Table, J. Gilbert’s Wood-Fired Steaks and Seafood, and the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge are all within walking distance. If weather conditions are favorable and you are willing to walk three miles in approximately one hour, you can even walk to or from the airport. Interstate 480 and United States Highway 75 are close by as well.

I recommend staying at the Hilton Omaha for the location. The room rates were not usurious, either. Members of the staff were nice and offered good service; but it was not outstanding. The hotel property in general was not extraordinary, special, or exciting. It was rather dated and plain by modern standards and could use a refurbishing.

I did not use the indoor pool or fitness center.

Self parking costs $22.00 per day. Valet parking costs $37.00.

A free shuttle service between the hotel property and the airport is available every 30 minutes.

Consider several interesting things which you can do in the greater Omaha metropolitan area when staying at the Hilton Omaha hotel property.
