I and my fellow chaperones looked after 14 teenagers in this hotel while we were in town for the Thespian Festival. They gave us a great government rate and even offered the buffet breakfast every morning. The breakfast was nothing to write home about, but the sweetest lady named Patty served us wonderful "mini-omellettes", which are really regular sized omelletes and not the ridiculously-sized six-egg variety you get in some of the chain restaurants. The hotel is very clean, relatively new, and right in the heart of the beautiful downtown Haymarket neighborhood. I have also stayed at the Embassy Suites up the road, and while it is roomier and the breakfast is more made-to-order, it would have cost twice what we paid at the Holiday Inn. The desk staff is friendly and responsive, and housekeeping is conscientious. Most important to me, the hotel is very quiet, and well soundproofed. For the money, it's a great value. Special kudos to the staff of the Red Onion, the attached restaurant that served our students and me breakfast every morning. They were kind, remembered the kids' names, and made a special effort to help us feel welcome.

We stayed at this hotel with our son's baseball team and everyone was very friendly, courteous and helpful. Danny provided service in abundance in the Red Onion Bistro during breakfast, and Barb was a fun and friendly bar tender in the lounge. The location of the hotel is ideal, and the cleaning staff was also very friendly and did a great job keeping our room tidy. The front dest staff was also very helpful. All in all, we were very pleased with our stay.

Room Tip: We had a room at the end of the hall, so it was nice and quiet.

My wife and I spent 11 wonderful days at the Holiday Inn. The staff was very courteous and attentive. They always made sure we had everything we needed. We loved the fact that we were walking distance to our favorite restaurants and shopping in the Haymarket.

We were especially pleased with the staff of the Red Onion bistro. The breakfast buffets were always well stocked and the chefs were always quick with a smile and a made-to-order omelet. A special thanks to Amanda and Jessie for their excellent service and friendly attitude. They made us feel like family and we looked forward to seeing them every morning.

What a perfect location and clean hotel with exceptional service!! I love staying here and walking to many of the downtown restaurants or bars. Rooms are always clean and fresh. Barbara is a hoot at the bar and the shuttle driver had us laughing before we started drinking! If they only had a hot tub!!!

This downtown hotel is in a great location, near UNL and many restaurants.
Two highlights, the managers reception ( Lisa and Barb provided great service
with smiles and friendship to boot) and the breakfast bar, which included a
made to order omlette, (white egg Denver style was my choice). I go
for business that is 5 miles away, but still prefer to stay at this hotel.
