You Look So Pretty And I Love This View

The Elevators by The Cottonwood Room

Hello from Davenport, but I am going to take a second to talk about Omaha. I had such a great time there. The hotel I stayed at was definitely my favorite of this trip and probably one of my favorites of all time. So, if you go to Omaha, you should stay at The Cottonwood Hotel.

The hotel used to be The Blackstone Hotel and has a pretty storied history. One of its claims to fame is that it is the birthplace of the Reuben Sandwich, one of my favorite kinds of sandwich. I am currently eating the most disappointing sandwich at a hotel in Iowa, longing for that spicy mustard perfection from last night.

Writing has been going slow, it is hard to fit it in with driving, work, and travel. A lot of times, I am just so tired by the end of the day that I can’t think clearly enough to get a rough sketch of the scene. I am hoping to spend some quality time with it at my parents’ house though after they go to bed.

So, quick little recap, I’ll have two posts tomorrow: one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

See you tomorrow! ❤ Spencer.

The Orleans Room.. Birthplace of the Reuben
In the original bar this was a real cottonwood tree.. I really enjoyed this bar.
Look out Omaha, here comes trouble.
The Signature Cocktail of the Cottonwood room… Very strong, but really good.

Petite Orleans
The only good coffee of the trip so far, I’m willing to call it, unless we stop at Intelligentsia in Chicago, I doubt there will be a better cup of coffee.
