We were originally booked at the holiday inn airport, but, after arriving there, decided we really wanted to be downtown. My husband called and was told there was only one night available with the government rate so we would have to spend the next two days at the airport. We took it, however, after looking on-line, we realized there were... More

Hope to stay at this hotel again. A big remodel is planned in the next year, so we will be curious of the changes. Clean room, friendly staff, spacious accommodations for groups and parties. We loved the pool area! Only issue was a poorly draining bathroom sink. The beds were very comfortable, great nights sleep. Walking distance to lots of... More

Super nice with some great beds. We came for a conference and found that they gave a discount for the conference. The parking garage is on the side of the building, that took us some time to find. Walking distance from the hay market district which is a cool area.

Great hotel with great employees. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Barb at the bar is stupendous. I look froward to staying here every time I visit Lincoln. I caught this amazing image outside the hotel after a rain storm. Nothing like a beautiful rainbow to brighten up your day!

I just got back from a 3 week stay at this hotel while at a training in Lincoln. The rooms were very nice. I had a room on one of the top floors, facing north with a great view of the basketball arena and Memorial Stadium. Breakfast was always good, especially the omelets. The hotel staff was fantastic. The front... More

The location of this hotel is outstanding., I was within walking distance to work, dining, and entertainment. The room was very clean, the staff was extremely helpful and courteous and the food at the Red Onion Bistro (On Site Dining) was both outstanding and reasonably priced.

While the city of Lincoln has experienced phenomenal growth in the 25 years since I had moved away, few areas are hotter than the Haymarket, a century old manufacturing and warehouse district with 3-6 story tall red brick buildings, many of which have taken on new lives as clubs, restaurants and condos.

The rooms and location were much nicer than even expected and free wifi is awesome. Free beer and wine Monday-Wednesday cocktail hour, but Barb the bartender was so great, I kept coming back on the non-free nights. I worked in the service industry in the past for a long time and she was so professional, quick, and knew how to... More
