The Chicago Tribune calls the Magnolia Hotel Omaha a "cool place to stay". (Reporter's story and video here). The Omaha Magnolia Hotel's stunning new design is reminiscent of the building's 1920s Italian heritage. Upon entry, the beautiful lobby reflects Italian architecture in the original marble floor, travertine walls, Roman columns, and elegant vaulted ceiling. Modern touches liven up this exclusive space, including elliptical-shaped chandeliers, a modern seating area with leather ottomans, a mahogany registration desk with a concrete countertop, and a custom area rug with a floating blossom design.
