The majority of the Nebraska luxury hotels are found in Lincoln, the capital of the state; and luxury hotels in Omaha are numerous, as it is the state’s largest city. Outside of these two cities, most of the luxury hotels in Nebraska are resorts and conference centers, several with full-service spas. One of these is the Arbor Day Lied Lodge and Conference Center located in Nebraska City, about an hour’s drive south of Omaha and an hour’s drive east of Lincoln. It is set on 72 acres of beautiful park-like grounds with walking and hiking trails and has an Olympic-sized swimming pool, fitness center, fine dining, and many more amenities including a golf course.
One of the Lincoln Nebraska luxury hotels is the Marriott Cornhusker, also a conference center and located within minutes of all the city attractions. This property has all the facilities and amenities you might expect of a fine city hotel anywhere. There are other nationwide franchise chains, such as Best Western, Comfort Suites, Days Inn, and Embassy Suites. These are generally more extensive and luxurious than representatives of the same names that you might find in the more rural areas of the state. Because this is the capital city with more business travelers, and a university city where family and faculty stay for more extended periods of time, you will find numerous properties with suites and full kitchens. Many of these are 4-star properties.
Even if you are far from the two largest cities, you can find some Nebraska luxury hotels in charming bed and breakfast inns. Many of these also give you a taste of the region’s history, as they are located in old homes of historical significance. Some of these are Omaha luxury hotels set in one of the several historic preserved districts and neighborhoods. One of the most elegant is the Cornerstone Mansion, built in 1894 and located in the Gold Coast neighborhood near the Old Market District. Several of these unique properties are also located in Lincoln, including the beautiful Atwood House, a colonnaded 1894 Neoclassical Georgian Revival mansion and the Westview Inn located a bit outside of the downtown area. You can also get a taste of the city’s history here, as this property was formerly the County Home (also known as the “poor farm”). The 15,000-square-foot structure was completed in 1916, and will host special events. Do bear in mind that few historic bed and breakfast inns allow smoking or pets, and some will not accept children under twelve years of age.
Luxury hotels in Omaha are the most plentiful in all the state. You will find a number of these located near the Old Market District, the highly-respected Joslyn Art Museum, or the old State Capitol building. These luxury hotels in Omaha are almost all recognizable national and international chains, such as Hilton, Courtyard by Marriott, and Embassy Suites. The unique and elegant Magnolia is located in a historic 1920s building that is on the National Register of Historic Places. Spacious rooms and suites offer full amenities, and facilities include a fitness and business center.
Some Omaha luxury hotels are located not far outside of the city. These Omaha luxury hotels are especially centered around the many golfing resorts. Luxurious vacation rentals are available at Fontenelle Hills. You can get all the deluxe amenities and facilities with a bit more of a laid back family atmosphere at one of the state’s water parks, the CoCo Key, which has a very reasonably priced Holiday Inn and Convention Center.
