Marcus Hotels and Resorts renovates The Cornhusker

3 September 2014

Marcus Hotels and Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corp. (NYSE: MCS), said it has completed a USD11m renovation of The Cornhusker, A Marriott Hotel, in Lincoln, Neb. just in time for Husker football season.

Every inch of the hotel was renovated, and creative new food and beverage concepts and Marriott signature elements were added. Located just minutes from the historic Haymarket District and easy walking distance from the University of Nebraska campus, the hotel has undergone significant changes that have taken this beautiful property to new heights in Nebraska´s capital city.

The revitalized lobby, still featuring a beautifully ornate staircase, now boasts a modernized look and feel, emphasizing neutral colours that reflect Marriott´s design vision. At the front desk, backlit panels and dark wood accents provide an inviting and warm atmosphere for guests as they arrive. Expansive floor-to-ceiling lobby windows now serve as a focal point, naturally lighting the lobby and creating a welcoming gathering space.

Updates were also made to guest room corridors, the indoor pool, and all elevators, which were reconfigured with modernized technology. The gift shop was relocated and now provides 24-hour availability of snacks and products to guests.

Marcus Hotels and Resorts owns and/or manages 19 hotels, resorts and other properties in ten states. For more information on the latest news and updates, visit: and follow the company Twitter (@MarcusHotels).
