A Nebraska-themed hotel is now open right here in Lincoln on the University’s Innovation Campus. It pays tribute to famous Nebraskans and communities around the state.

The hotel was six years in the making. COVID slowed it down for a while, but in collaboration with the University and former Husker football player Zach Wiegert, who is with the developer Goldenrod Companies, the hotel is open. The hotel is complete with a coffee shop, restaurant and multiple bars, including one on the rooftop.

“To see the final project and kind of the vision you had years ago is really rewarding,” said Wiegert.

Each room is Nebraska-themed. It gives a small history lesson on the state and has a few pieces of memorabilia.
