“One of the best Courtyards ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great location, friendly staff, quiet and comfortable room, and plenty of meter parking nearby that is free from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. But what makes it one of the best is that this new property has many of the small amenities that I didn't expect, like a large shower with the nozzle located so high that even the tallest guests don't have to crouch. And old guys like me really appreciate a ledge in the shower to rest my foot on while soaping up. These little surprises just kept happening and that's what made my stay great.

Nice new property. Proximity to all that's happening in the Haymarket area is a huge plus. Everything is within walking distance. Room was nice but odd layout. Had to pull the TV out and turn it to watch from bed. That makes it in the way when you get out of bed...odd. Loved the showers. The Starbucks and breakfast was extremely slow the two days I was there. Asked for a banana and a muffin which they said they'd bring to me. It never came. Had to go ask again. Would be way better to allow customers to get their own items.

Very well designed hotel rooms. Have stayed on two seperate occasions and both experiences were excellent. This hotel is necely located to the Haymarket area of town-- lot's of nightlife and botique shopping. Can easily walk to new convention center to be completed in fall 2013, University of Nebraska campus and Memorial football stadium. Floors are concrete which adds an added soud barrier for both interior and exterior noise. Bathrooms are somewhat small and have a shower only- which satisfies 98% of travelers. Parking is accross the street and up one flight of stairs (no elevator) which is inconvenient. Breakfast is not included. There is a small Satrbucks in lobby area whick offers a limited menu (My wife and I had oatmeal and a coffee for $24.00)

Room Tip: View on west is new convention center and rooms are slightly larger. North- UNL Memorial Stadium. A...

This a a new hotel which is walking distance to down town. Has a Starbucks and yogurt breakfast bar but get there early to avoid the lines. The hotel was quiet despite being by the ice machine. The staff was friendly and helpful. Parking is $11.00 per night.

This is the nicest courtyard I've stayed in.....and I've stayed in a lot of courtyards. The staff was great - check in was a breeze. The rooms and all the common areas were very clean and well kept....if only all courtyards could be this nice....

I had just 1 night at the Courtyard Lincoln Downtown before an early flight departure right before the Christmas holiday. The hotel is absolutely lovely, contemporary and the front desk associate was awesome! My hotel room was excellent, however, the bathroom floor could have used the corners cleaned just a bit more as well as the shower door Windex'd a little more too, which are the only two things that are keeping me from giving this hotel a 5 star. Cleanliness elsewhere was top notch. I will definitely stay at this hotel again if needing a hotel stay in downtown Lincoln.

There was quiet a few of us staying there. The staff was super friendly. We all got checked in quickly. The location was close to restaurants and bars. I love the Haymarket area. Really charming. The hotel was clean our rooms were nicely decorated. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel! Best night sleep ever (for a hotel that is). The bathroom was nice but the sink area is a little small for us ladies and all our products. But if that's the only little thing who cares. The one draw back was how expensive the drinks were and food in there lounge area

Room Tip: Our room was on the 6 floor at the every end of the hall way which made it quieter
