The Farnam, Autograph Collection will take its place as Omaha’s premier boutique hotel on Thursday May 20th, welcoming discerning travelers and urban flavor makers for a truly unique hospitality experience in the heart of the famous city.
Overlooking Omaha’s riverside and historic Old Market from one of the tallest buildings in the city, The Farnam, the Autograph Collection offers the most coveted views of its 120 rooms, including 24 suites. Each room has its own view, ranging from the cityscape in the north, west and south to the river valley in the east. Here guests will find a uniquely upscale atmosphere with shiny, modern glass surfaces that merge with historical details and textures that are reminiscent of a busy production and storage district on the Alter Markt. The hotel is part of the Autograph Collection from Marriott International, a group of more than 200 independent hotels hand-selected for their craft and different perspectives on design and hospitality.
“When it comes to creating the most memorable guest experience, we believe the little things are transformative,” said Jason Fisher of Omahas Cushman & Wakefield / the Lund Co., a major investor in the property. “When we designed the hotel, we made it our business to be focused on even the smallest of details. If you look carefully, you will notice the thought that has gone into every material selection that we know our discerning guests are about will appreciate him. “

Rooms have lantern-inspired lamps, art hanging from pulley systems, and side tables made from railway sleepers that blend seamlessly with luxurious modern comfort, locally curated art, and rich furnishings. The tiles, wallcovering textures, color palettes, and carpets that run through the sprawling corridors such as the nine-mile stretch of the Missouri River near Omaha, inspiring its design and signature scent, add depth to The Farnam, Autograph Collection, multi-sensory experience .
