Inspired by Omaha’s Best

At the turn of the 20th century, ambitious groups of American go-getters moved to Omaha by way of the railroad in hopes of making it big. These visionaries helped shape the city of Omaha early on, building up a great fortune while realizing the grand potential of this booming Midwestern destination. Over a hundred years later, this determined spirit remains the inspiration behind The Farnam. With our arms opened wide, we invite you to visit our one-of-a-kind Omaha hotel and discover the emboldened essence of the Billionaire To Be.

A History of Enterprise

Our hotel is named after Henry Farnam, the man who lobbied for the country’s most ambitious railroad building project in 1862. Known as the Pacific Railroad Act, this venture launched Omaha into a trajectory to become the metropolis of Nebraska it is today.

Guest Reviews

I have stayed in dozens of the nicest hotels all over the world and I can say emphatically the Farnam Autograph Collection is one of the best!!! The amazing views from the floor to ceiling windows were exceptional and everything from the from the check in to check out was truly first class. No detail was left out of this facility and we will certainly be returning. My only recommendation would be for availability of breakfast at the restaurant on weekends/holidays but even the hot breakfast sandwiches at the small coffee shop were satisfying! Great job!

By far THE best hotel in Omaha I’ve ever stayed in. We had a corner room with a view that’s breathtaking. The hotel is clean, comfy, and modern. We were VERY impressed overall. The staff was pleasant and helpful in all our requests. It’s hard to go back home because of this experience.
I have been waiting for an Autograph Collection hotel in Omaha for years!

This hotel, while only open for two months, is a real treasure! From the friendly valet who greets you at your car, the wonderful fragrance upon entering the hotel, to your beautifully designed room, thoughtfully laid out bathrooms, oversized sweatshirt robes to the comfortable beds! Everyone we encountered was friendly and made us feel at home immediately! Weary traveler, this is where you want to be! I can't wait to visit Omaha, Nebraska again to relive this experience.
Had a short weekend getaway with my wife for our anniversary. When traveling we make a point of trying Autograph collection hotels when possible. So far they have not disappointed and The Farnum was no exception. This place was beautiful and had the familiar lemongrass scent as soon as we opened the lobby doors. Our room was cozy and intimate. The service was top notch especially the valet/bellman Derek. He was an absolutely outstanding worker. Always hustling with a smile on his face and offering tidbits of advice and suggestions. His service alone is worth coming back for. The location was central to everything we needed downtown near the Old Market and everywhere we went was an easy walk.
Incredible hotel and great location. We were driving home from Denver back to Chicago and decided to stop in Omaha and try the old market neighborhood. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! The hotel is one of the nicest I’ve stayed at (my wife and I like to stay at boutique hotels all around the country). The room is like a luxury loft apartment, modern, and super classy. We walked downtown and got dinner outside at M’s on a random Tuesday night (incredible food) and we’re treated to an amazingly talented local street musician playing cello on the corner. The total Omaha experience was amazing. One of the best evenings my wife and I have had in any city! We will definitely come back.
My husband, son and I stayed here for one night while we were visiting family in the area. It is a beautiful hotel that is extremely modern and clean. The service at the bar and restaurant was fabulous, and it is walking distance to so many restaurants and shops. I will definitely stay here again whenever I’m on the area. Best hotel I’ve ever stayed at in the Omaha area.

his was by far the best hotel we have stayed it in our travels. Our goal is to visit all 50 states. This year we travelled from Omaha, Nebraska through Iowa, South and North Dakota to Denver Colorado. The Farnam is a short walk from The Old Market downtown. The room was large, well appointed, welcoming and the design is spot on. A tremendous amount of thought went into making the room as comfortable as our home. The staff was stellar in pointing us in the right direction. Thank you so much!
This new hotel in the trendy old market is gorgeous! I checked in May 2020 when they had just opened and let me tell you it did not disappoint. It's centered within walking distance of various food, coffee shops, trendy nightlife spots and so much more! Staff is very friendly and helpful as well. Room was a good size with king bed beautiful bathroom layout and great interior selections. I would definitely recommend!
