The newly opened Kindler Hotel has brought game-changing bespoke hospitality to the heart of Lincoln, Nebraska. The area’s first and only boutique lodging, the hotel blends the independent spirit of Lincoln’s heritage, neo-classical architecture, and sophisticated accommodations to create a boutique hotel experience Lincoln hasn’t seen before. A location that’s prime for both Husker football fans and culture enthusiasts, Kindler Hotel fuses gracious hospitality with a modern art deco design for a memorable stay in Husker Nation.
Two years in the making, Kindler Hotel effortlessly blends Lincoln’s local character with a modern West Coast aesthetic to create a refined Midwestern experience. The Kindler Hotels interior design was brought to life by Ross Vincent from Ross Vincent Design based in Los Angeles. Vincent brought together elements from the Art Deco era of the 1920s-1930s and married them with cutting-edge contemporary design, creating a new design concept he calls Modern Deco. Easily mistaken for a posh upscale New York or Los Angeles luxury hotel, guests are greeted by a show-stopping lobby with high ceilings and a beautiful chandelier with custom-designed furniture accents reminiscent of The Great Gatsby. The creative spirit of the late Lincoln native and hotel namesake, Ken Kindler, lives on through artful details.
For the modern traveler in mind, the 49 guestrooms take inspiration from Lincoln, Nebraska’s rich cultural history. Boasting comforts such as pillowtop beds and Egyptian cotton sheets, the guestrooms offer thoughtful touches like bathrobes and slippers. The double queen rooms are perfect for guests traveling with a family or a group, while the Lincoln Suites are ideal for a business trip or a romantic getaway. The rooms are outfitted with designer furnishings, modern artwork and design details offering guests the inviting warmth and comfort of an elegant private residence.
The hotel’s story is more than sophisticated accommodations. The perfect place for dinner or nightcap, guests can visit Boitano’s Lounge to enjoy uniquely crafted cocktails, wine-food pairings and a seasonal dining menu developed by Brian Boitano, world-renowned Olympic skater and Food Network star. Guests can savor satisfying dishes with locally sourced ingredients in a posh Modern Deco atmosphere with live music on select evenings.
Located in downtown, just blocks away from the Historic Haymarket District and University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the hotel is surrounded by revered attractions and top-rated restaurants. For Huskers’ fans, it’s a short stroll to the Memorial Stadium at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. While you’re there, see the Nebraska Cornhuskers in action, take the kids to the Lincoln Children’s Museum, visit the Nebraska State Capital and checkout the Sheldon Museum of Art.
