A new midtown Omaha hotel — seven stories high, with indoor swimming and parking — is slated to rise southeast of Dodge Street and Saddle Creek Road.
Intended to help cater to the growing University of Nebraska Medical Center campus to the south, the 120-room hotel would bring a big change to the intersection surrounded mostly by fast-food restaurants, residen- ces and other low-rise buildings.
One house and a vacant retail Premier bank building are to be razed to make way for the 83,000-square-foot hotel. Its three lower levels would contain a lobby area, offices, a swimming pool and about 125 parking stalls. The remaining floors would be guest rooms.
