The Farnam

Now, about the hotel. The Farnam is Omaha's first Marriott Autograph Collection hotel and it is spectacular. The rates for us are as follows:


King $146
Queen $156
Visionary Suite $271
Metropolitan Suite $296
Billionaire Suite $346

(Who's going to be the first among us to take the Billionaire Suite? It has lots of seating and a bar area and measures around 800 square feet and I'm counting on him or her to feel obligated to host a party for fellow alums!)

I was given a tour on April 9th and expressed doubt that the hotel would be ready for its announced May 1 opening. This photo of the lobby area suggests the reason I was skeptical. (LSJ)

I was assured it will open on time, and I can attest it will be spectacular. The hotel's theme is Omaha history. The carpet in the halls combines references to the Missouri river, the Omaha shore to its side, and the state flower, goldenrod. Tables in some of the rooms are constructed from railroad ties as Omaha's connection to Union Pacific and the other railroads is given a lot of attention. All artwork in the place has been locally curated.

Though the hotel isn't finished as I write this, there are, though the wonders of computer technology, "photographs" of the finished product:
