OMAHA, NE—The Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol has opened. The 333-room, 12-story hotel is the first new full-service premium hotel to open in Omaha in more than a decade. Marcus Hotels & Resorts is a minority investor in the property and is managing the new hotel.
The new Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District was designed by architecture firm Leo A Daly and was built by construction firm JE Dunn. Materials, such as brick and iron, are used throughout the property to convey a warehouse style inspired by Omaha’s Old Market neighborhood. Wood paneling hints at Omaha’s roots but is tailored with modern details in keeping with Marriott’s midcentury-modern-inspired aesthetic.
The property has floor-to-ceiling windows in all its guestrooms, contemporary chic decor throughout the property, deluxe bathroom amenities and 13 suites with custom furnishings.
The Omaha Marriott Downtown’s ground floor has a full-service dining restaurant, Society 1854, and bar, Burdock + Bitters. Both concepts pay homage to Omaha’s industrial history.
Property amenities include a rooftop pool with a bar and entertainment area, outdoor event areas and more than 17,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, including an 11,000 sq.-ft. ballroom.
The new property also has a concierge lounge. Located on the third floor of the hotel, the lounge offers guests a range of complimentary food and beverage options, a private pool deck entrance, free wifi, 24-hour access and other business necessities.
