All Eyes Will Be On The Hilton in Omaha This Weekend
You'd never think it but the the Hilton Omaha. is going to be bumpin' this weekend, thanks to Buffettchella aka the annual shareholders conference for Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
Fox Business's Liz Claman (@LizClaman) dished out her tips on what to do in Omaha for our brother site, Jaunted and in it she gave a shout-out to the Omaha Hilton for their service. She said:
We stay and broadcast from Hilton It is right across from the (Qwest) convention center where the meetings are taking place and centrally located downtown near all of my favorite restaurants. It is actually my favorite hotel of any place I have ever stayed. Who would have known? Once a year shareholders, business leaders, and the media descend upon this tiny city once and they handle it incredibly well.
Liz doesn't even leave the hotel for a java jolt as the hotel brews Starbucks coffee in the lobby. (We just hope the hotel waives their WiFi charge for her.)
The Hilton recently completed a $37 million renovation this year to accommodate Buffettchellas as well as the College World Series and U.S. Olympic Swim Trials in June. Even though the hotel upped their room count by 150 rooms for a grand total of 600, they are still completely sold-out this weekend.
So if you can afford the $120,000+ stock price for one share of Berkshire Hathaway, then you should probably start booking your room at the Hilton for next year.
