Welcome to Graduate Lincoln—where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay. Team central for Husker happenings, Graduate Lincoln is just a dash to campus and amid all the historic Haymarket District fun. Here, students, faculty and alum can enjoy a cool and comfortable respite from the everyday. It is elegant enough to host Lincoln’s most beautiful weddings, and a smart choice for corporate meetings, educational events and down home fun. The lobby is decked in vibrant greens and warm rich wood – a nod to Nebraska’s vast parklands and grand landscape with forest green hand glazed tile, cozy emerald sofas, rustic herringbone floors and exposed brick walls. Playful moments include corn print curtains in our rooms and front desk drapery that pays homage to the state’s great late night son, Johnny Carson. Gather your group for vintage pinball and arcade games, or convene at a communal table – the perfect hub for conversation, camaraderie and a cup of joe.

Our room was great, but the elevator was incredibly slow and busy and made us late. On top of this, the staff was all around awful. The breakfast station workers were straight up rude. I left something in my room and trying to contact them for help was a nightmare. I would not

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to fill out a review. Your review concerns me as our number goal as a hotel is guest satisfaction. I would enjoy speaking with you more about your experience. Could you please call the hotel and ask for Troy? I am the GM and would like to discuss your experience so I can make sure the right things are addressed. Thank you.

Yes 50's college theme was kind of cool, but possibly to the detriment of overall comfort. Mattress quality and bedding was just average. The location is great but because the hotel sits on one of the main streets/stop lights, it gets really loud at night. We stayed there 3

Thank you for staying with us. First, let me apologize for the lack of stayover service on your last night. We are in a very popular part of town with the Haymarket District attached to us, and realize at times there is a lot going on in Downtown Lincoln. We appreciate you filling out a review and letting us know.

Usually our rates without breakfast are lower than the hotels that "include" breakfast in their rate. Our rate with breakfast is usually equal to their rate. The idea of including breakfast or not including breakfast differs with different brands, but we try to keep that in mind when we set those rates.

This hotel is awesome. 50s college dorm theme. Remember, it’s a themed hotel smattered with a local (cornhusker) feel!! You can’t help but feel good while your staying here! Room has a mini frig and microwave. Great extra is a magnifying make up mirror in the bathroom (one of
