Evanston, Il
Reviewed 24 November 2015

We were there on a non-football weekend (for a wedding), but got a taste of what football weekends must be like. We had to sign the Pledge not to have loud parties after 10pm and obey the signs outside the elevator admonishing passengers not to pack the car or jump. Yay Big 10. Rooms were fine, people were very nice....

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a review. We do try our best to keep the noise level at the hotel to a respectable level so everyone can enjoy their stay. Sometimes that can be easier said than done! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon.

Right in the middle of Haymarket. Superior service and great accommodations. Barb in the bar is hands down the best bartender I've ever had the pleasure to know. The food at the Red Onion bistro is fantastic and you have a lot of good choices in the area; make sure to give them a try.

Go talk to Barb, the bartender. This is a great central location in downtown Lincoln. The rooms are nice and the bar is great. Managers special with beer and wine - and a great bartender - so you see where my priorities are - 1. Great bartender, 2. Good room, 3. Convenient location, and 4. Managers happy hour. What more...

The staff and the service they provide are second to none! Bar none, each staff member goes above and beyond my expectations each time I am at this hotel. The facilities are excellent and meet my living needs. The parking garage can be tricky, but can be managed driving slowly. So many things to do close by. Always look forward...

Great stay in Lincoln with a nice hotel so you can get her a shuttle from the airport then walk to meetings and anything you need to eat or drink in the Haymarket district. After all that you can hang out with the best bar staff in Nebraska

I travel to Lincoln on business on a regular basis. My company has a special relationship with the Holiday Inn so I always stay there. I want to focus on the Happy Hour they offer to guest Monday through Wednesday. First of all it's nice to get free beer or wine and some rather tasty appetizers. But the best part...

I teach, so had a 4-day Fall Break weekend to spend in Lincoln with my husband. We love the Haymarket area, and staying at the Holiday Inn downtown is ideal for convenient access to restaurants, shops, art galleries, Memorial Stadium for football games, and Pinnacle Arena for UNL Basketball games and music events.
