“Convenient, fresh and new”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

This Courtyard is conveniently located in downtown Lincoln near many great shops and restaurants. They offer Valet parking. Room was nice, had dinner in café which was reasonably priced and tasty. Nothing really stood out for me, other than the service in the café which was good at dinner time but a little slow in the morning. They brew Starbucks which for some people is a big bonus.

There are a number of hotels in downtown Lincoln, but this is my go-to hotel. Easy check-in, great staff, good breakfast. Rooms are clean and comfy -- and you can walk to all those restaurants and bars in Haymarket Square.

Thank you for your review. We are located in a new development of the Haymarket district that includes the new Pinnacle Bank Arena. It is exciting to be nearby concerts, Husker sports venues and so many restaurants and shops. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to serving you on a return trip to Lincoln.

Rooms were nice, and comfortable. But kinda upset with all of the unecisary decor, and no mircrowave. Rooms at that rate, and being a Marriott at that, should all include a microwave.... Put next to a room with all screaming kids, was pretty annoying as well.

This hotel is very comfortable and the staff is capable and kind. However, after going to sleep by midnight I was woken at 2:15 by very drunk guests walking up and down the halls. The room that was directly adjoining us had two women who were drunk, laughing hysterically and talking extremely loud. Then, they had two males joining them. I could hear everything they said. I called the front desk and they intervened and asked them to be quiet. Then, at 3:00 a.m.that is when the noise really got bad. I could hear everything they were DOING! .Embarrasing! I had had enough by 4:00 a.m.and called again. The front desk said they would ask that anyone in the room who was not a registered guest to leave. I finally got a little sleep after at 4:00 in the morning. I am just really glad my two small children slept better and had the bed further than the adjoining door. I was afraid I would have to explain the loud sounds from next door. The next morning we were given tickets for 2 breakfasts and the manager also took care of our parking expense. Still, I got very, very little sleep.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you felt as though our hotel was comfortable and our staff was capable. We are very confident in our well-trained staff who are very adept of handling a variety of situations – some of which are more challenging to figure out. Unfortunately, there are guests from time to time that have little regard for those around them. We appreciate that you offered our front desk and Managers on Duty the opportunity to intervene and attempt to offer corrective action. It is our hope that you leave our property satisfied and wanting to return. I’d invite you to call me personally to review your situation more specifically if you prefer. Again, thank you for the opportunity to serve your family. We hope to see you again soon.

The staff more than makes up for any issues I have with the location. There is nothing terribly wrong with the location, just a little remote of a neighborhood. The neighborhood is in a transition state, currently being gentrified from its previous days of industry. The new arena next door brings lots of business, but also brings noise, double edged sword.

The staff are top notch professionals. For a young customer facing staff, they "get" the concept of customer service and relations. They are a pleasure to interact with. When someone on my team was injured while staying here, the hotel could not do enough to assist and take care of them, it wasn't forced, it didn't feel like anything other than actual genuine concern.

This team needs to be recognized from the Front Desk staff, to the bell and car staff, to the Café, housekeeping and management, they are all outgoing and wanting to assist in making a stay comfortable and safe.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel, away from the potential from street noise, particularl...

This location was a toss up between Haymarket and The Cornhusker across from UNL. I chose this one due to it being right in the Haymarket. I booked two rooms and three nights for a recent stay in Lincoln. This hotel was wonderful in most every way possible. The rooms were roomy the beds were absolutely WONDERFUL! After a 10 hr drive, it was so nice to climb into this bed. There's a nice sitting area outside with a great fire that was surprisingly warm. It was super cold outside and my daughter and son in law sat by the fire waiting for the car just to see if it was indeed warm and it was quite toasty. The hotel has a bistro cafe which offers a decent selection for breakfast, and other meals. We had a late night snack one evening. My only suggestion would be for amend the hours for the bistro, at least for Friday and Saturday nights. It closes at 10pm and it really should be open at the least until 11pm. We made it in time for a late night snack by about 5 minutes and right after us came a a few more people. Breakfast on Sunday was quite busy and just ordering a muffin that was in the case took 10 minutes to get because they had to give you a number. Just a few tweeks and it'd be perfection. I will definitely be booking here again though.

We stayed here for the Elton John concert which was at the new bank arena several blocks away. Afterward we headed to the Starlight Lounge in the Haymarket area. It was great to be able to have a couple drinks and not have to worry about driving and although it was cold two blocks was no big deal. We enjoyed getting ice cream from the refreshment center and our room was clean and the bed comfortable. This was our second time here and is surely the best place to stay in Lincoln The room rates were kickep up for the concert as i am sure they do that for most events but well worth the extra money compared to hotels a mile or so away.
