I was in Lincoln to attend the 100th anniversary of my sorority chapter and stayed at the Cornhusker. They didn't even mention that I was too early to check in - they just checked me in. They have a valet but you can self-park in a nice clean garage attached. The hotel is just a few blocks from the student union and closer to all sorts of businesses and an Old Market-like area of bars and restaurants. Being from Houston, I don't get a chance to walk much (we drive everywhere) so I really loved the opportunity. The room was very clean and the bed was very, very comfortable. I forgot to take my sleeping pill but I slept the whole night anyway because of the great bed. The bathroom was very clean, too. Had all the usual luxuries including a refrigerator. The staff always greeted us with a smile and they even put up with the whole chapter posing for photos in their beautiful lobby. Very reasonable cost. We didn't eat there so I can't discuss the food. There was a prom in the ballroom and the winning basketball team was staying in this hotel but I never heard a peep out of anyone. I'll definitely stay there again. If you book there directly, you get free wi-fi. Otherwise, it's either $4.95 or $7.95 a day. I got it free.
