McCarthy Building Companies has broken ground on a six-story boutique hotel located in Lincoln, Neb., on the Nebraska Innovation Campus, a research community designed to facilitate partnerships between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and private-sector businesses. Developed by Goldenrod Companies, the $23 million, 154-room hotel will be a Marriott International Tribute Portfolio property. 

A 10,000-square-foot portion of the hotel’s first level will be designated as educational and amenity spaces for use by students of the University of Nebraska’s hospitality, tourism and restaurant management program. Specialized areas will include an instructional kitchen, classrooms, a student lounge, a conference room and faculty offices.

Other hotel amenities include a full-service restaurant, a rooftop bar, a coffee shop, a fitness center, a walk-up food window and a private dining area known as the Founders Room on the top floor.

Virtual Event


Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.

Designed by DLR Group and Curioso, the hotel will feature a brick and metal panel façade. It will be constructed adjacent to the Rise Building, a 75,000-square-foot business incubator that houses several start-up and private businesses. It will also be located across the street from the campus’ north Innovation Commons building.

Construction is scheduled for completion in fall 2021.
