The Cornhusker Marriott completes $11M renovation

The Cornhusker, A Marriott Hotel completed its upgrade. The property spent $11 million for the remodel project that saw changes to the entire property, including the 300 guestrooms (with nine suites) and the Grand Ballroom.

Changes in the latest round began in April 2014, and work steadily made its way through the Lincoln hotel — from the 27 meeting rooms with 46,000 square feet of space, to the lobby.

Guestrooms received a modern look with granite countertops in bathrooms, and new carpet and décor throughout. Also available are complimentary high-speed Internet connectivity, and flat-screen LCD TVs. Other in-room amenities for both the leisure and business traveler include coffee makers, refrigerators and work desks with ergonomic chairs.
