Double Tree back to Embassy Suites

Postby Brad » Tue Jan 21, 2014 5:15 pm

According to a rumor passed along on last Saturday's Grow Omaha Radio Show...

The Double Tree at 72 and Mercy could be going back to an Embassy Suites.

I wonder why it ever changed in the first place.

I hope so. Embassy would be much better to have on 72nd anyways. But i believe the structure isn't large enough to support the prototype for Embassy.

This ended up becoming "Aksarben Suites"

This place has closed now. Looks like some construction may be going on. Anybody heard anything on it?

Might have been short term. Looks like it's open again. If you go, ask them what's been going on. Would love to know status.

I also went by the one at 72nd and Center that houses Shark Club, and now it looks closed. Sign down and they would not let you enter parking lot from 72nd. Anybody know this status?

The Double Tree was closed for renovation but is now open.

The hotels I've been referring to are at 72nd and Center area (one is the Ak Sar Been Suites that was originally Embassy Suites), are you referring to that or the current DoubleTree at 72nd and I80 that has been open for a while?

Aksarben Suites @ 72nd and Cedar. I just called them again and was told they were closed for renovation from 1/1 thru 4/30. They reopened on 5/1.

Great info, thanks! I wonder if something similar is going on with the hotel across Center?
