We were in town for a family reunion and had a great time exploring the area right out the front door. I would stay there again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Llama01 Friendly staff
Every one of the staff was friendly--from the desk people, to the maids to the restaurant staff. The hotel was clean if a little bit dated. Nice, clean indoor pool although there was no shallow end for little kids. On-site guest laundry. The parking garage is pretty cramped but I suppose that is because this is a downtown hotel without much extra property room. Very convenient to Haymarket area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stan09 Excellent Hotel
The Holiday Inn Lincoln Downtown offers a great location and a friendly staff. If you get the opportunity to stay on a higher floor you will be able to see most all of Lincoln what everything it offers. There are several places to eat there with it being right in the middle of Haymarket Square. The area is old but has a ton of history. My only down side to this hotel was that I didn't stay there during a Nebraska football game which I plan on coming back and watching one. Work out facilities are decent have everything you need but are lacking the things you want (it's a hotel can't expect everything). Everything is within walking distance. The only thing that is kind of bad is the parking garage. It is too narrow and if not carful will cause body damage to your vehicle plus they charge for parking daily. Other than that it is a great place to stay and vacation if you want a quite small town feel in a big city. Two thumbs up!!! Great job!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DRail Good hotel, minor problems
This is the 2nd H.I. I've stayed in in the last month, and it seems like I'm on a streak with bad air conditioning units. At home, I sleep at 68 degrees and am comfortable. I set the thermostat at 68 for my room in Lincoln, and was unable to get a decent sleep.
The staff were friendly, and the location in town is great. Parking is poor in that the parking deck is woefully undersized. I saw a standard van crush its roof on the ceiling and our company pickup truck could barely maneuver inside. Even long cars would have a problem negotiating the turns.

We had a wonderful stay there. There was a problem with the front desk regarding a "wake up call"; however, Kara (one of the managers) was empathetic and made the situation RIGHT. Thanks Kara.

I would like to thank everyone at the Holiday Inn Downtown Lincoln for a GREAT experience!!! We had our daughter's wedding reception there and can not say enough great things about this hotel. From the very first meeting with Hollie to the very end of the wedding reception, the staff was flawless. We had many out of town guests staying at the hotel and everyone loved it. A big thank you to the Holiday Inn for making our weekend wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel!!!

This is the third time we have stayed and like the other two times it was wonderful. Clean room and great staff. I asked for a crib and it was in the room when we got there. Fun for the kids and nice and quiet.

We were in Lincoln for a wedding, so the hotel was chosen for us, although we couldn't have picked a nicer place. The rooms were nice and the people there, from the front desk to the restaurant were superior!! Great location to get to everything in Lincoln and easy to find. We had a great stay!!

We have stayed at the Lincoln Downtown Holiday Inn in the past. However; this stay was exceptional from the moment that we arrived until we checked out. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We especially appreciated the shuttle that was available to and from the Pershing Center each day. Given the chance in the future, we will be back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by thespian Convenient but needs improvement
I stayed at this location for 6 days while I was working at a conference held at the University of Nebraska campus. Shuttle service from the airport was efficient and useful and the location was good. However, the hotel rooms are in great need of upgrades: peeling wallpaper, faulty door jam to my room--requested repair on several occasions, blow dryer did not work-- took 2 requests to get a replacement. Carpet was worn in several places.
I had one meal in the hotel restaurant and ordered breakfast off of the menu. Service was good but,the food was served cold--and presentation was poor.
The young staff was friendly but, needs to work toward providing guests with responses to requests in a more timely manner.
My job paid for this stay for me however, I am tempted to request another location when I return for the same purpose next year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BMoney Great breakfast, but parking garage is narrow and limited
Loved staying at the Holiday Inn in downtown Lincoln NE; however, the parking ramp is very narrow and difficult to navigate and the parking availability is very limited - then to get charged $7/day for parking - might want to re-think that.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ThespianAttendee Slow tub drain
This is a fine hotel, but a slowly draining tub, causing me to shower standing in two inches of water tarnished an otherwise fine visit.
When the tub drain doesn't keep up with the shower head... the hotel should find a way to slow down the shower or clean out the drain to allow for better flow.
Maintenance came up twice, and never really fixed it, saying "it's draining, just not very fast". They did offer to change me to another room, but I declined the offer.
Excellent breakfast in the Red Onion Restaurant. Excellent attitude and service from front desk staff. Room was clean... no complaints except the drain... which to me is a serious flaw. Snake your drains!

The hotel is right in the middle of Lincoln's downtown. My room on the 14th floor had an exceptional view of the Memorial Stadium. Close by to various restaurants and bars. highly recommend it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by She11y Average Holiday Inn
If you are handicapped--- this is not the hotel for you. Ramp from garges is steep, all other enterences have steep narrow ramps and steps. Asked for handicapped room-- got confirmation of handicapped room with wald/roll in shower--- but not what we got-- tried to fix with hotel--unable due to hotel was FULL.
Parking -- verify parking cost before you stay-- some in our party did not pay to park -- most paid $7 per vehicle per day. This was disappointing.
Elevators-- Slow, Slow, Slow--- these are horrible. All of them.
Pool -- heated/indoor OK-- No hot-tub
No deck or balconies to sit outside- just one bench in front of hotel and one in garage.
10th floor cleaning lady--- you are awesome!!!!! Great service-- she actually CLEANED the room--- Yep we tested her-- she rocks!
There is a lot a placed within walking distance of hotel-- that was nice.
Breakfast coupon for buffet on Sunday Morning-- only half our party received--
Lobby small and seemed to be always crowded.
This was an average stay for a holiday inn-- Probably will not return to this hotel.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The environs were clean and comfortable. And the location (near lots of food) was a delight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Husker75 Clean, comfortable rooms and good service.
With the parking garage being almost empty, I would think that they could have provided parking for no extra charge. I can understand charging on NU football weekends, but when the hotel was almost empty, it seems it would be a good way to encourage use.
Great location near campus, and staff was excellent!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Deb518 Comfortable bed and nice room
The location of the hotel in the downtown area is great. The room and the beds were very comfortable. The parking ramp is a little bit tight for a larger vehicle but having a covered parking spot was comforting because of the possibility of bad weather! Would stay there again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NotMarcus great staff
The staff here is unbelievable! From the moment I walk through the doors I feel at home. No matter how busy the front desk seems to be I am always greeted with a smile and they are always courteous. It only gets better when I go have dinner and a drink at the bistro. No matter how hectic the bar gets, Barb seems to somehow keep everyone taken care of and I've never had any problems whatsoever. In short, the entire staff will go above and beyond every time. By far the best and that's coming from someone who is on the road 250 days a year.

After traveling 12 hours through some challenging weather the staff at the desk were wonderful! I was exhuseted and just looking to check in. I was offered a choice of rooms (lower floor or higher floor). Unalbe to make this decision the gentelman offered to give us a higher room with a view of Memorial Stadium. I said, great. We had an amazing view and a wonderful room. I really appreciated his attention to this detail when I was to tired to consider but it made a huge difference in our stay. Wonderful customer service and extremely friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TV85 Best hotel stay in awhile
Staying at this hotel has been the best hotel stay in a long time. I have been a priority club platinum member for a few years, and this was the first time I have been given a room upgrade this year. The hotel truly did recognize my brand loyalty and made me want to come back. There was an issue with the upgraded room not being ready yet but the staff got the room ready, the manager inspected it, and helped make my stay enjoyable. The hotel restaurant offered a nice breakfast and there was plenty of parking for being downtown. Everything was clean and well kept. The pool looked nice and the exercise room was well maintained.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AAA1 Started out awful ended better
My family was in Lincoln for a wedding at the Grand Manse for March 23rd. I was parked in the loading area with my elderly mother watching the car. She agreed to wait while my husband and I were taking the bags to the rooms.The 1st time the keys to the room didn't work, the 2nd time the key didn't work either,the 3rd time a maintenance personnel open the door. The 4th time, finally the door had to be reprogrammed. By now my husband is livid ! I called the front desk to discuss our concerns while all the while my mother is outside watching the car and she was very upset not really knowing the city with night approching. The lady at the front desk offer dinner on the hotel. My husband felt a litte better. When going into the restuarant for supper, we met Danny. I've been in the public eye and I'm really big on customer service. He made a huge difference in our entire weekend. He is so AWSOME. Danny asked if we were having breakfast the next morning because he would like to take care of us again. I told my entire family about Danny. The chef was great as well. Sunday was just as great with Danny there again. By the time we left, he was like a family member. We Love Him !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My name is Yvonne, we were staying here because my brother, Wendell is a Priority Club Member.
