I was in Lincoln, Nebraska last week to see The Weeknd. Since the concert was on a Wednesday night I thought it would be nice to stay in Lincoln and drive back to Omaha in the morning. I used the annual free night certificate from my Hyatt Credit Card to book the room. Paid rates were going for over $200 that night so I thought it was a great redemption.
The Hyatt Place Lincoln/Downtown-Haymarket is located exactly where the name says it is. The Haymarket District is right across the street from Pinnacle Bank Arena (where the concert was held) and just a few short blocks from Memorial Stadium. The entire area is full of bars and restaurants so there isn't a lack of entertainment options around the property.
As you enter the hotel, the check in desk is immediately on your left. The lady who checked us in did a great job. She thanked me for being a World of Hyatt member and explained the features of the hotel. She also consulted us about our room location becuase it was facing the bars and wanted to make sure the noise wouldn't keep us from getting a good night's sleep.
The rest of the lobby is rather small. There are a couple of couches and a small business center with three computers.
I was assigned room 334 on the third floor.
As you enter the room the bathroom is on your right. It has a single sink and a walk-in shower.
I'm not sure if this is true across the Hyatt Place brand, but this property has Barney Kenet, MD amenities. I found it odd that there wasn't any lotion in my room. Maybe if I would've called the front desk I could've got some, but lotion is usually a standard amenity.
Past the bathroom is the living area. It has a rather large sectional with a hide-a-bed, an ottoman, and an end table. Technically you could sleep three to four people comfortably in a room like this.
Across from the sectional is a desk with a small coffee maker.
Next to the desk is a dresser with a mounted television, and a closet.
For the most part it's all one room, but there is a small divider that separates the living space from the bed. The king size bed was perfectly comfortable and I got a great night's sleep.
The rest of the hotel's facilities are on the main floor. They have a decent sized gym with all of the essentials.
Just down the hall from the gym is their pool.
Breakfast is free to all hotel guests and is served from 6:30AM - 10:00AM. The breakfast area is past the check-in desk on the left hand side of the lobby
I was REALLY impressed by the quality of the breakfast spread. Normally a free breakfast consists of hard-boiled eggs, yogurt and crummy biscuits and gravy. This spread was the complete opposite. Their drink selection included fruit juice, multiple types of milk, coffee and tea.
Some of their cold options that day consisted of cereal, a yogurt bar, fresh fruit and bread.
They were also serving oatmeal, french toast, bacon, some quinoa dish and scrambled eggs.
I was really impressed with the Hyatt Place Lincoln/Downtown-Haymarket. This was my first time staying at a Hyatt Place branded hotel and I really enjoyed the setup. I like that the rooms are large and include a living space. They also do a great job with their free breakfast too. I'd strongly recommend this hotel if you need to spend a night in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Has anyone else stayed at the Hyatt Place Lincoln/Downtown-Haymarket? What are your thoughts?
