The Magnolia Hotel was all decked out for the holidays this year. We were there for our holiday staycation in December.
The hotel had a variety of decorations.
From a gingerbread house display that had a jar for donations…
We were fortunate to visit the Omaha Children’s Museum (with our niece), dine at Spaghetti Works in the Old Market, visit the Durham Museum, Hollywood Candy store, Hot Shops art center, Union Pizzeria for dinner, Lauritzen Gardens and the Gene Leahy pedestrian mall.
The Magnolia Hotel offered us the feel of an upscale hotel while providing a boutique hotel setting. It is a fantastic hotel, centrally located a few blocks from most downtown attractions.
The hotel staff had us stay in a queen loft suite, which overlooked the courtyard.
The suite is divided into the living quarters on the main floor, and the bedroom and bathroom on the loft level.
It had the feel of a small apartment. The set up was nice. As you enter the second floor suite, you see a full-size kitchen and a smaller dining area.
The stairs led to the bedroom level. The queen bed was very comfy to relax in for a few minutes between tour stops. Both the living room and bedroom have decent-sized flat screen TVs.
Following our day of adventure in the Big O, we settled for a cup of hot chocolate and a plate of cookies. The hotel sponsors a “milk and cookie” hour nightly. In addition to the hot chocolate, guests can have milk, coffee or hot tea.
The hotel also sponsors a managers reception with alcohol and non-alcoholic drinks and appetizers. We missed the reception because we were out touring.
After a great night’s rest in a comfy bed, we enjoyed the hotel’s complimentary full breakfast buffet.
