Restoration of Cottonwood Hotel Starts New Chapter for Storied Blackstone Building
The Cottonwood Hotel in Omaha reopens this week after a $75 million restoration launched more than three years ago.
“We now have a showcase for Omaha,” said Tom McLeay of Clarity Development, noting that other growing metro areas have historic hotels as central gathering points. “I’m thrilled we’re able to do our part to bring this element of Omaha’s history back to the city.”
To better grasp the prestigious past, one need only look at old publications, like a 1950 Hotel Management story that described the hotel as “one of the country’s best glamour houses with three restaurants, a cocktail lounge, two bars, a ballroom and several function rooms.”
