    4 of us had to attend a training held at this hotel 2 different weekends. We just completed our final weekend. Everything was excellent!! Staff were helpful, friendly, accommodating and fun. The only upgrade I would request would be for more co.fy chairs in the meeting spaces as 2 of us have horrible back issues and struggled sitting for 8 hours a day 3 days at a time in them. Otherwise! Great place to stay for business, pleasure, and fun!

    Front desk not helpful. Shuttle service, great

    We have always enjoyed staying at this hotel when we go to visit our son in college. This time, the front desk female refused to keep our bags behind the counter until our room was ready, which I have never experienced at any hotel. However, the shuttle service was a great benefit and the driver was very enjoyable.

    I was very disappointed due to the resurfacing of the parking lot I had to park quite a distance. I'm handicapped and so it was an issue for me. Wish they would have at least advised of the repavement construction at the time of booking.

    Nice bed but had other issues.

    The view from the room was nice. The ac unit wasn't being controlled by the wall unit. The bathroom door did not close. The extra security flap on the main door flipped up when we left our room and we were not able to get back in. Had to go down to the front desk to let them know then they sent up maintenance. Apparently it happens often. So we would put a hair tie around it when we would leave so it would stay down. The breakfast was cold and very crowded.

    Great Service, Weird Air in Room. Happy overall!

    Everyone at the hotel was very friendly! The river view was incredible and the location was perfect. Just far enough from Downton Omaha that we felt out of the hustle when we wanted to be, but also just a 10 minute drive from the fun. They don't have a sauna and the air in the room was a little weird for us to get used to (steady at 1 temp - switching between air and heat). But overall, we'd love to come stay again!
