Attractions, Dining, and Shopping: Downtown Omaha is home to some of the US’s top companies, but you’ll also find the historic Old Market district here. This area is 6 blocks from the hotel or you can access it using the free hotel shuttle. You can walk around its brick-and-cobblestoned streets among restored 19th-century warehouses now house loft apartments, independent boutiques and bookstores, galleries, and many restaurants.  The Joslyn Art Museum is blocks from the hotel. It is housed in a 1931 Art Deco building clad in pink marble and includes beautiful standing and visiting exhibits. Also, within range of the free shuttle is the Durham History Museum housed in a historic train station.   Also within a few blocks is TD Ameritrade Park (home of the College World Series) and Holland Performing Arts Center.

Outdoor Activities:  The hotel is located near the riverfront where there are nice running/bike pathways where you can cross a pedestrian bridge into Iowa. Additionally, the #1 ranked Henry Dorley Zoo is near downtown is open year round with a lot of outdoor and indoor exhibit options.

Getting around Omaha is seldom a problem, with many amenities close to the hotel and others with the free hotel shuttle. Getting to the city is even easier, with a major airport and many highways that lead right to the heart of everything!

You are going to love Omaha!
