With the nation’s road trip trend showing no sign of stopping, it’s the ideal time for Chicagoans to look farther afield for weekend adventures. Our pick? Omaha, whose just-debuted Cottonwood Hotel makes a compelling reason for a trek. In the heart of the city’s buzzing Blackstone District, the European-inspired, 205-room boutique property—set in the historic former Blackstone Hotel building and now part of Kimpton after a $75 million reinvention—is an ideal spot from which to explore the Gateway to the West’s shops, museums, and restaurants and bars, as well as enjoy upcoming events like the 2021 College World Series and, for fans of swimming and that oh-so-Midwestern sport of curling, the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials. Or not: Ensconce yourself in the hotel’s 700-square-foot, top-floor Presidential Suite (from $750 per night, thecottonwoodhotel.com), and you may not want to leave the premises. We wouldn’t blame you, with hotel amenities like a full on-site fitness center (Peloton, anyone?), plus tempting food and bev options like The Cottonwood Room cocktail bar and The Committee Chophouse. All in all, it’s an Omaha experience like no other. Says general manager Mara Bouvier, “Whether you wish to explore the incredible local art scene, dine in Omaha’s finest chophouse or lounge poolside with a cocktail in hand, our team will flawlessly oblige without guests ever having to leave the hotel.”
