Candlewood Suites debuts in Lincoln

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is adding 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 player.

“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 for Performing Arts, The Lincoln Community Playhouse, Southpointe Pavilions, The Lancaster Event Center and The State Museum/ Elephant Hall.
