The Omaha Magnolia Hotel was built in 1923 by Chicago capitalist Chester Cook, and named the Aquila Court building after Chester's grandfather. The faces of George and Aquila Cook are on the front of the hotel, which is constructed of Bedford limestone and contains Tennessee marble floors and a Brazilian cherry wood lobby. The building design was based on the Bargello, a palace in Florence, Italy, which contained a peaceful courtyard. The Bargello is now a museum that contains early Italian sculpture. The U-shape structure's design is indicative of the renaissance revival style. The building originally contained 18 shops and 240 offices. In 1995, the building was renovated into the Westin Aquila Hotel. In 1999, the building was renamed the Sheraton Omaha Hotel. In the fall 2006, Magnolia Hotels acquired the building, and a renovation began to update the property.
