An Expression of the Ideals, Ambitions and Inten
tions of the Owners and Management of the New
s&Jsj sJgj
r If HIS HOTEL, we earnestly believe, typifies all that is best,
all that is recognized as desirable, in the most modern hos
telries of the highest class the world over. We cannot, how
ever, too strongly impress the thought upon the public that
as true as this statement is, the house will be more especially dif
ferentiated by the fact that it will be entirely devoid of the op
pressive atmosphere of stateliness and the senseless extravagance
of tariff which characterizes too many of the famous hotels.
(fTT Over and above its exceptional beauties and its manifold ex
it cellence, moreover, it stands for an ideal, a definite purpose,
upon the part of those who have made it possible.
That they have unwavering confidence in the commercial fu
ture of the community is self-evident.
(QT That they expect the venture to prove reasonably profitable
11 is only natural but, at the same time, from its inception to its
completion, they have been pleased to look upon it more as a monu
ment to the indomitable spirit, the indefatigable industry, and,
above all, to the open-hearted manhood and womanhood of those
who have made this community what it is.
(Hf With this idea in mind, they have not sought to build a mere
II show place, a mere temple of gorgeous magnificence, but rather
a hotel fine enough for the most particular, yet one so free from
formality, and so expressive of hospitality, that those finding occa
sion, from time to time, to sojourn in Omaha will look forward with
pleasure to their stay within its walls.
(nr That they have succeeded admirably is evidenced by the words
n of approval of those who have inspected the house and who
have been kind enough to say that in its arrangement, its orna
mentation and its appointments it is truly an unique expression of
homelike hospitality.
(nr To the tourist and the traveler from a distance we extend our
ll hearty welcome, well convinced that they will agree with us
that the house has few equals, and no superiors in this country
in fact, that in many respects it strikes an entirely new note in
hotel excellence.
QT To the citizens of Omaha we extend a hearty welcome and as-
sure them that it will be our everlasting purpose to serve and
serve them well when they enter our doors and we recognize that
in order to make our hotel a genuine success we must make every
one feel absolutely at home.
While our house ranks with the best in the country our prices
are within the means of everyone.
