Omaha: Hotel Deco XV
We've longed for a high-end hotel in downtown Omaha, and now we have one. The 89 rooms in this restored 1930s building blend Art Deco elements with sleek neoclassical touches in a silver, black and white palette.
Located across from the Orpheum Theater, Hotel Deco XV has a retro-hip vibe—you can easily imagine Tony Bennett having a postshow cocktail in the Encore lobby lounge. Valet parking, Wi-Fi and an overnight shoe shine are complimentary. The mattresses are comfy, the bathrooms have eight-spray European shower panels, and the Zin Room restaurant serves beautifully plated comfort food. Bring on the pampering! From $200 (866/475-3326; hoteldecoomaha.com).
