Room was over $300 a night. The bed was way too soft and the shower had no pressure. No continental breakfast; had to dine at hotel restaurant. Beds were awfully small. There was no hotel parking that was free; paid $20 to park my car. I think a guest in a hotel should have free parking.

I was very pleased with my stay at The Cornhusker. The room was tastefully renovated, large in size, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept on. Check-In was a pleasant experience. I was asked if I had stayed with them before. When I replied no I was assigned a room with a nice view of downtown.... More

After a long day of travel I finally got to the hotel. The stay got off to a bad start when I stood on the curb waiting for the valet. Had to finally go look for him. The room was clean, and consistent for the Marriott brand. Went down to the Miller Time Pub and Grill, which was advertised in... More

Whenever I'm in Lincoln, The Cornhusker is always my first choice. Its proximity to downtown makes doing business in Lincoln a snap. The recent renovations have turned a traditionally nice hotel into a progressive, "go-to" hotel with the best amenities in town. Service is exemplary with staff proactively offering to assist travels in whatever way might make the experience at... More

It had been some time since I had stayed at the Cornhusker and I was very pleased with the hotel. The rooms are comfortable, clean and roomy. The location of this hotel is perfect if you are visiting the capitol, city campus or other downtown businesses. I was here the week that students were moving in to campus, so the... More

If your travels take you to Lincoln, you would be hard pressed to find a better hotel. The renovations are complete and the hotel is in great shape with very nice public spaces and large, clean, well appointed rooms. The staff were all very helpful (although some seemed a little inexperienced). I stayed for 4 nights during a conference. The... More

This place used to be a pit. So bad that it lost its Marriott association and had to cover the word "Marriott" on the side of the hotel. But all that has changed. It is now nice enough that I wouldn't be embarrassed for someone I know to stay there. This place is a historic hotel in Lincoln, the first... More

The communication between the staff is not effective, even to guests they gave out way too much misinformation and messed up reservations in the span of two days. Very disappointed with the food quality and variety. The eggs in the concierge lounge were dry each morning and quite disgusting. Room service was quick and friendly, however the limited menu made...
