Travel Blogs from Omaha
So I've decided to start keeping a record of my travels even if it's just done the street to a restaurant. This was my first time at Nebraska Brewing Company and I enjoyed it for what it was. I went during lunch time so there weren't many people around but it had the look and feel of a roomy sports bar with a wide selection of beers. I started with one of their pumpkin brews that they said ...
Sunday sees us tackling the most travelled peak in Colorado, Pikes Peak. At just over 14,000ft (3890m) up we go through the Forest Service toll gates and onwards to the peak which gives magnificent views out over the plains below. Then we set the navman to Aspen, via Buens Vista and the Arkansas River. We stop at the Gunsmoke Roadhouse for lunch before travelling through some of the ...
Cheyenne is the capital of Wyoming, and a most appropriate place to be so. It is very neat and well cared for. We had a look at the historic site of the Sand Creek massacre of 1864, when General George Crook made his oft quoted and now fiercely inappropriate statement that the "only good Indian is a dead Indian", shortly before his troops massacred several hundred old ...
After almost 18 months in the planning we are finally on the road. Thanks to a free upgrade we are now driving a Nissan Rogue SUV instead of the smaller intermediate we had reserved. Nice!
Drove 741 miles today! It was hot (89) and windy once we got in Illinois. Iowa really is a pretty state. Lots of rolling farmland - almost all of it in corn. It ...
What a bummer - we are now officially headed home. We about 1,400 miles to go to get there! We are still in Wisconsin, but the border of Illinois is only a short distance. We will then have the state of Iowa to get across.
Lots and lots of farm ground, mostly corn fields. We did get to stop at a few Harley stores. There was lots of freeway... ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Omaha
Excellent hotel adjacent to convention center. Great gym with men's sauna. Exceptional buffet breakfast. Starbucks on site.
BEST hotel EVER!
This hotel is AWESOME! I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great stay in a hotel. The staff is great and the rooms are the best!!!!! BEAUTIFUL and CLEAN!!
Loved the Hilton!!!
If you are looking to stay at a hotel that is beautiful, comfotable and has a great location then stay at the Hilton in Omaha. The decor is amazing and so are the beds. The staff was very polite and helpful. The only meal we had there was breakfast and the buffet was very good. Went to dinner at Rick's Cafe Boatyard behind the Qwest Center (within walking distance from the hotel) and the service could of been better but everything else was great! The next trip I plan to Omaha will include the Hilton and Rick's.
We spent two nights here this past weekend (July 23 and 24). The hotel just opened April 1st. It is a beautiful hotel!! It was a very nice change after staying at the "historic" Sheraton Omaha the night before and having to deal with the Sheraton's cracked walls and musty smell.
What a place!
The bed, the pillows, the mattress pads - like sleeping in heaven. The facility is great. The shuttle drivers are very flexible.
Yes, the staff (some) are a little pretentious, but the can afford it for the end product.
Hotwire does it again! When one plays the Hotwire game, one takes a certain amount of risk.........this time, we drew a Royal Flush! A quick week-end trip to Omaha was in our calendar, and it didn't really matter much where we stayed - so, just for kicks, we did the Hotwire routine and ended up at the gorgeous new Omaha Hilton. From arrival to departure, we were treated as though we were paying rack rates - and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
We stayed on the Executive floor, and the lounge was well-maintained by attentive and courteous staff members. Our room was spacious. Having a leather desk chair was a nice distinction--as it offered more comfort than the stiff, fabricated kind that hotels customarily use. The bedding was clean and comfortable, with the exception of the feather comforter which was quite a nuisance, as some of the filling often escaped--aggravating our sinuses. Housekeeping staff were efficient and cordial. The indoor pool and the enclosed area were well-ventilated and kept at comfortable temperatures. We (especially my daughter) enjoyed the quality food and service we received through both dining in at the hotel restaurant and through room service. We will be returning to Omaha soon and have already made reservations to stay here again!
Could not have been much better
Stayed here during the College World Series. Very nice rooms with perfect beds and pillows. Staff was excellent from the front desk, to the executive concierge, to the waitstaff and management. Great location next to the arena and a few blocks to the old market - we even got a carriage driver to take us back to the hotel! I would stay here again and recommend this hotel to friends.
This newly opened hotel looks great. The rooms are beautiful and the bedding was fantastic! The best I've ever experienced in the Hilton chain. However the front desk gave conflicting answers re: an inquiry and seemed clueless. I can understand that because the hotel is only 2 months old. There are some things that can't be overcome however. The only way to get to the pool is through a narrow hall by which you have to pass right in front of the front desk to enter and the fact that you must go outside to get to the parking garage as there is no way to access it from inside the building even though it's attached to the building. Poor design. Old Market is 4-5 blocks away.
Liked the Hilton Garden much better...
Overpriced for what you actually get, numerous extra charges, pretentious staff. Go to the Hilton Garden Inn two blocks away, much better deal, and a lot more fun too.
