My family stayed in a 1 Bedroom (queen) suite (accessible--because that's what was available). There was LOTS of room. The main living area is quite large and features a futon, 4 large chairs and 3 small tables. The room also has a small desk area and a large "dining" room table. There is a kitchenette area with a full sized fridge, microwave, and full sized sink. The kitchenette is stocked with enough dishes for four people. The bathroom area was nicely tiled and also had a small cart with shelves to hold towels and other bathroom items. The suite has one closet just outside the bathroom door. The bedroom area had a queen bed, a nightstand, a chest of drawers and another large dresser. The main living area and the bedroom both have TV sets. The decor in the room is retro modern--reminded me of the late 60's but very fresh. We had no problems or complaints. The fold out futon bed sleeps one at best (or two small children). Our 5' 9" son's feet hung off the futon bed a bit--and we ordered a rollaway for our daughter. There was plenty of room for both "beds" in the main living area--and we could have easily fit the rollaway in the bedroom if necessary. The breakfast was good--eggs, bacon, potatoes, biscuits & gravy, make your own waffles, strawberries, fruit, yogurt, English muffins, bagels, misc. juices, coffee, etc. Not many cereal choices but plenty of other food available. The hotel is the closest to the State Capitol--and a short walk from the other Lincoln sites. Free parking was very handy too. I would recommend his hotel to friends--and already have! If this hotel had a pool it would have been perfect (for my kids) but that wasn't a priority for our trip.
