... thousand kms.
Had a nice swim in Lake Michigan near Chicago, huge lake can’t see the other side, there were large sand dunes and a small wave. Apparently a hippie in a combi does surf tours on the lake, but it just didn’t feel like the sea. Hils and I had several theories why not. I thought because we were higher the horizon has less of a curve, Hils thought because we were higher than sea level the clouds looked closer. Either way, it certainly looked like ...
Today we went to see the Strategic Air and Space Command Museum southwest of Omaha in Ashland, NE, about 30 minutes away. It was very good! When you enter the lobby (on the second floor), the first thing you see is a real SR-71 Blackbird suspended from the ceiling right in front of you. I like SR-71s!
We spent more than 3 hours at the museum and enjoyed the exhibits. There was even ...
... bigger than a typical hotel room, but not a 2 room suite like we were blessed with at Scott AFB. We went for a walk around the area; Offut boasts the country's largest "field house" (a gym), in an enormous former hangar that did the mods on aircraft during WWII.
Tomorrow (Friday), we are staying in Omaha, going to look at the SAC museum here, and possible some other places, too.
... enough it is. I wrote it down on a stolen napkin and the taxi driver looks at it from time to time. His name is Javier Pardo and he's friendly and chatty. I think all the drivers who go to the airport are. He tells us that we should call him if we need a taxi and I write down his phone number. I figure he could take us to the airport when we leave. He asks us why we chose that hotel, how much is it because he knows a better place. We tell ...
Sam Marchese is a good friend who's married to my cousin Lynn. He invited me to a really great Italian-American lunch event on a cold day in Omaha.
There was a huge crowd there and lots of warm handshakes as people encouraged me in my campaign and asked me to work ******* fixing our nation's finances and job picture.

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree Hotel Omaha - Downtown
This hotel has been left to the dogs. I'm surprised Hilton Hotels, who bought out the Doubletrees, allows this to happen. The hotel was remodeled and cleaned up about 5 years ago. We have stayed there a number of times since the remodel and totally enjoyed it. It used to be super clean and nice with good service. We had not stayed there for about one year and then we stayed there on February 15, 16th 2005. The place was absolutely gross. The pool was filthy and had alot of mold and slim growing on the deck and was loaded to the max with chlorine. The sauna was run down also. The rooms were filthy. The bath was only wiped down in the middle and the sides of the vanity were still dirty. The carpets in the room had a ton of dirt built up around the edges like they only vacuumed the middle of the room. Mold was growing on the tile grout in the bathroom shower. We watched the maid clean and she just used the towels you left on the floor to wipe down the toilet and sink area. Totally gross. The buffet was still good. The door man chased you around and gave you dirty looks because we did not want them to carry our three bags to and from our room. The place used to be first class, but is now low class. The newer Hilton at the Q West Center is sweet and better to stay in.
Tired in Omaha
I agree with the previous reviewers. This property feels tired and neglected. While the front desk is always nice, the warm cookies don't make up for saggy matteresses, threadbare sheets, and weak showers. The upside? I've alway get a good rate here, and it's a relatively short walk/shuttle bus ride to the Old Market. If you're a Hilton Hhonors member, I recommend checking out the either the new Hilton or the Hilton Garden. There both nicer properties and closer to the Old Market.
Cheap and clean
I echo the others who felt that this hotel was a blast from the past but I didn't have any problems or issues that really turned me off. The decor is a bit dated but the front desk staff was super friendly and check in was a breeze. The room was a standard king bed, desk, chair and TV armoire. This is a very affordable hotel and convenient to the Old Market area. If you are looking for a place to literally lay your head, close to downtown and convenient to 480 then this is it. If you want luxury this is definitely not for you.
Overall, the stay was fine.
A little old - but nice
I have stayed at this Doubletree several times on business. It is within walking distance (10-12 blocks) of the old market district. The food at the hotel is average but old market has great places! This place seemed like it needed a renovation (it was an old Red Lion hotel previously). The carpet looked old, etc. Overall, the service was good and the shuttle service was very accomodating. There is no need for taxis in Omaha with the way most hotels shuttle you around. I would suggest the Hilton Omaha before this one, but when they are full, this place does just fine.
Average Stay in Omaha
Stayed two nights (Sunday and Monday) at the Doubletree Downtown Omaha. The stay was adequate. The room was very large, but everything in it, especially the matress, linen, window coverings, carpetting, furniture, lamps, and coffee maker, looked like (or felt like) they should have been replaced years ago.
The staff were friendly, helpful, and knowledgable, and the food in the restaurant was excellent. The fitness center is misnamed: it is four unusable cardio machines in a cramped humid room near the pool.
OK Hotel, lousy location
This bland 70's style hotel is in downtown Omaha, which is mostly empty buildings and parking garages. The rooms, restaurants and bars are all acceptable, and have some nice views at night, but this town closes up shop at 5pm. It's close to the airport, and the major corporate headquarters of Omaha, but that's about it. If you find yourself in this town, it's a little better out west, but still no "urban nightlife"
On the upside, I wouldn't worry about being out in downtown Omaha after dark - the streets are so empty even the muggers are elsewhere.
Nice, if your short
Not a bad hotel. The shower was poor. Noozle was low (0kay if your under 5' 6") and the water pressure was very weak. Would not stay there again just for that reason.
I belive it is good hotel, but I stayed in the best room ($>400.00) and the picture on the tv was bad, room was outdated, and i felt i didnt get my moneys worth.
You Get What You Pay For
Omaha is a larger city than you think, and I believe that this Doubletree makes the city feel larger.
The Doubletree is a huge high-rise hotel and almost feels out of place there. Large rooms, attentive staff, and of course, the cookies.
Parking is a pain in the butt, however this place makes one feel priveledged in downtown Omaha.
