InterConti plans Candlewood in Nebraska

InterContinental has announced the
newest addition to the Candlewood Suites portfolio of extended-stay hotels in
Lincoln, Nebraska. While this is the first Candlewood Suites hotel to be built in the city of Lincoln,
there are now two Candlewood Suites hotels with more than 200 guestrooms in the
state of Nebraska with the addition of the Candlewood Suites-Lincoln. The
InterContinental Hotels Group portfolio in Nebraska is represented by five of its
brands, including the upscale, midscale, limited service, upscale extended-stay and
mid-scale extended-stay segments with 31 hotels and more than 3387 rooms. 

Guests at the new Candlewood Suites-Lincoln can take advantage of the hotel’s
just-like-home complimentary amenities, including high-speed internet access, free
local phone calls, free on-site guest laundry and a 24-hour fitness center. Unique
to Candlewood Suites, guests can also enjoy the convenience of the Candlewood
Cupboard, where a variety of beverages, breakfast items, snacks, frozen entrees and
sundries can be purchased on the honor system at any time, as well as the Gazebo
Grill where guests can enjoy cooking out as they would at home. Additionally, guests
of the Candlewood Suites-Lincoln can visit the free Lending Library, where movies
and music are available for use in guestrooms, which all feature a DVD and CD


“Candlewood Suites hotels are carefully designed to meet the particular needs of
longer-staying guests,” said Gina LaBarre, vice president, Brand Management,
Candlewood Suites.  “When business or personal matters require travel for a week or
more, guests find that the design of our guest suites and the amenities we provide
allow them to live comfortably and keep a daily routine similar to that of home.”



Candlewood Suites guestrooms feature studio or one-bedroom suite floor plans with a
full kitchen, large workspace with comfortable desk chair and overhead lighting,
overstuffed recliner, VCR/DVD and CD player and wireless Internet access.


“Candlewood Suites’ unique amenities enable our guests to live according to their
own schedule and needs, not the hotel’s,” said general manager, Roland Morgan.


The new property is situated in southeast Lincoln just minutes from key businesses
such as St. Elizabeth Community Health Center, the Nebraska Heart Institute, State
Farm Insurance and Lincoln Benefit Life Insurance. Several area attractions are also
close to the hotel, including Holmes Lake & Golf Course, Hyde Observatory, Sheldon
Art Gallery and Sculpture Garden, The Folsom Children’s Zoo, The Lincoln Children’s
Museum, Star City Shores Waterpark, Westfield Shoppingtown Getaway, The Historic
Haymarket, The Nebraska State Capital, The University of Nebraska, The Lied Center
