If you thought the hotels in Omaha were surrounded by cornfields, you’re due for a trip to the Gateway to the West. Step into this sprawling city and you’ll be greeted by amazing century-old architecture, a world-famous zoo and a certain billionaire who brought Fortune 500 businesses to Omaha. The Big O has some of the coolest sites this side of the Missouri, and these hotels in Omaha – bookable on Culture Trip – are your gateway to it all.

No hotels in Omaha have an outdoor terrace bar larger than the Farnam. Now, that’s certainly not the sole reason to base your booking on, but we can confirm that the Catalyst Urban Lounge will be your favorite part of this hotel. The runner-up will certainly be the breathtaking Billionaire Suite that boasts floor-to-ceiling city views, soundproof windows and a dining table set for four of your big baller friends.

2. Kimpton Cottonwood, an IHG Hotel

Kimpton Cottonwood is packed with so many amenities and services that we’re surprised they found room for the actual rooms. Every morning your nose will wake you up to the scent of coffee and tea, unless you’d rather the breeze perk you up atop a loaner bicycle. Everything from cell phone chargers to humidifiers are available for free, and yes, that includes a host of pet items. Add in a kids’ program, resort-style pool and five restaurants, and we still won’t have covered it all.

3. EVEN Hotels Omaha Downtown, an IHG Hotel

It’s all about balance at EVEN Hotel. Unlike the standard hotels in Omaha, they’re ready to welcome you with wellness programs like group exercise classes and in-room training zones with on-demand workout videos. Healthy eats are made to order, freeing you from fast food reliance. Standing workspaces and elevated fitness equipment in your wellness suite ensure that your body, mind and spirit are always on an even keel.

4. Hotel Deco

Keeping art deco alive in the Big O since 1930, Hotel Deco brings a rebirth to its century-old style by decking out its guest rooms in bold artisan wallpaper. Journey down the rabbit hole when you take a closer look at the room decor – you might just spot an Alice in Wonderland theme running above the hardwood floors. If the words “eat me” and “drink me” appear before you, you don’t need to follow a white rabbit. Just walk down to Monarch Restaurant for a cake that will only make your belly larger.

5. Magnolia Hotel Omaha

Take one look at the Magnolia Hotel and you’ll rightly think that you’re in Italy. Mimicking a grand palace in Florence, this 1920s upscale hotel just south of downtown is ready to introduce you to the Old Market district. Let the Magnolia team cruise you around the city, but be sure to reserve a few hours at the District for a bourbon Re-Fashioned or a scotchy Glasgow Mule.

6. DoubleTree by Hilton Omaha Southwest

Is an Omaha vacation on deck for a trip to the College World Series? DoubleTree by Hilton is a grand slam for your budget. Only 10 minutes from TD Ameritrade Park and even closer to the University of Nebraska Omaha, you can hit a line drive to both and be back in time for dinner at Vida. No ticket to the game? No problem. Kick back and catch it in your two-room suite.

7. Hilton Garden Inn Omaha Aksarben Village

Most hotels in Omaha will detour you to downtown, but the Hilton Garden Inn wants to show you a new part of the Big O. Take your time making yourself at home in your double queen room, maybe even take a dip in the pool to loosen up after a long flight. When you’re ready, slip on a pair of comfortable shoes and stroll around Stinson Park to catch a live concert, hit Baxter Arena for a game or check out the Omaha Farmers Market.

8. The Peregrine Omaha Downtown

You don’t have to fly far to find peregrine-inspired artwork at hotels in Omaha – it’s all perched in the guest rooms of the Peregrine Hotel. The fresh seasonal cuisine makes a statement, but the rule of the roost here belongs to the Takeoff rooftop bar. With near-360-views and a fire pit, this is the sole rooftop bar downtown and the only place you’ll want to be when you’re not cozied up in your suite.
