The historic Omaha Federal Building has opened for business as the Residence Inn by Marriott Omaha Downtown.

The 150-room hotel at 15th and Dodge Streets features a 1,000-square-foot penthouse suite on the privately accessed 12th floor that offers panoramic views of Omaha and a private rooftop patio.

First Hospitality Group President Robert Habeeb called the transformation of the historic structure an exciting journey.

“We take great pride in our adaptive reuse projects like this one that allow us to preserve history and simultaneously create a world-class hotel experience for business and leisure travelers alike,” he said.

First Hospitality of Rosemont, Ill., teamed up with Nelson Construction to convert the building. Omaha’s Alley Poyner Macchietto was project designer.
