Overnight Luxury

I am all about adding bits of luxury into one's everyday life, so the news of Omaha's first and only luxury boutique hotel is all I have been able to think about lately. Hotel Deco XV opened its doors at 15th and Harney on May 20th. The 89 room development prides itself on high standards and elegant modern style for "the most discerning of guests".

With such amenities as in-room massage services, 37-inch flat screen HD televisions in each room, complimentary shoe shine service and indoor valet parking, and rooms complete with iPod docking stations as well as iPad rental, Hotel Deco is sure to become a relaxing getaway for in and out of towners alike. The rooms and suites are finished with a clean design. Plush beds adorned with fine linens are tucked away in each room-complete with hardwood floors, custom Belgium wallpaper, Italian bath tile and spa-inspired shower panels.

The building (formerly the Redick Hotel), was originally built in 1930 as an office building with interior parking and later converted to a full service hotel in 1989. In 2010, under new ownership, upgrades and renovations began, and now Hotel Deco XV is among those in the Preferred Hotel Group's collection of 650 worldwide luxe properties.

The hotel also houses Encore, described as "the heartbeat of the hotel", an in-house lounge with a focus on classic handcrafted cocktails. Local Chef Ryan Gish, of West Omaha's Ryan's Bistro, was enlisted to head The Zin Room an on-location dining site. The two-story, Americana Fusion restaurant is also open to the public. The menu features tasty morsels like stuffed dates, gouda chicken mac and cheese, mango shrimp, and Chilean sea bass.

Fine linens, good design, superb service, and delectable food. What more could you ask for? With a build-up this good, hopefully it will not disappoint. Check out what all the talk is about at Hotel Deco's Grand Opening Gala on Saturday, June 11, 7PM.
