Denver to Chicago all flights cancelled needed to get home. rent a car and head east on 80. Wiindy, cold and snow, Called about 90 minutes in advance for reservation, nice clean hotel with parking garage to protect car from elements. Restaraunt attached to hotel provided room service which was perfect and very good. Good nights sleep up early now home safe.

This is my first visit to this hotel. Stayed for 3 nights while on business to Lincoln. Hotel location is right in the middle of downtown Lincoln and was rather easy to find. There is a multi-storey car park right next to the hotel, which was really convenient. Parking costs USD8/night. Carpark ramps were rather tight and maneuvering a large vehicle would be a challenge. Fortunately I was driving a Charger and it is OK going in and out.

Check in was quick and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I shipped a couple of packages to the hotel prior to arriving and they retrieved my packages for me promptly.

One package was misplaced by the front office and when I inquired, they helped me search for it and even offered to compensate me for the contents when they couldn't find the package. Fortunately they found the package a couple of days later.

The room was large with a king size bed and a 2-seater sofa. Room cleanliness was really good. Toilet and bath was also very clean and well maintained.

Had dinner once at the restaurant and the pizza tasted great! Service was excellent and the server recommended really good food. Breakfast was the standard American fare - bread, eggs, toasts, bacon & coffee. Good enough to fill up your stomach before a long work day.

I am a repeat guest over the last several years and have always enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Warm friendly staff that goes out of their way to ensure you have an excellent stay. Location convenient to downtown Lincoln nightlife and food, but over the years have come to just stay at the hotel for food and drink. Outstanding employees working the bar and restaurant. They keep me coming back.

I had a wonderful stay, this is one of the cleanest hotels we have stayed at and I stay at a lot of Holiday Inn's accross the United States 100-200 room nights per year. This hotel exceeds my expectations for cleanliness and staff. Great job housekeeping team.
Signed
I'll be back

Room Tip: Stay on the North side it is beatiful looking at the new arena.

This was my first visit to this hotel. I am a frequent traveler and spend between 100-200 days on the road per yer. Some of the things I look for most in a hotel is cleanliness and staff friendliness. I have to say that this hotel really exceeded my expectations on both accounts and I will certainly stay here again. Barb and Laura both went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable.

Stayed here 3 nights and found the room comfortable, convenient for nearby restaurants & quiet (despite the many weddings that weekend). But waited 40 minutes for the airport shuttle to arrive after being told it would be there in 10 minutes. Worth calling again and again. Friendly bar with good bar food.

Room Tip: Highest rooms best

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a review. I need to check on the difficulty with the shuttle that evening because airport transportation is our number one priority with our shuttle and usually picking up guests within 15 minutes is not a problem. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We also appreciate your positive comments about our location.
