The Quirky Hotel In Nebraska You Never Knew You Needed To Stay At
You have plenty of choices when it comes to overnight accommodations in Lincoln, but why not stay in a fun, quirky hotel that will take you back in time?
The Graduate Hotel is located at 141 N. 9th Street, Lincoln. It's right in the middle of the action, in the Haymarket District.
The hotel overlooks the University of Nebraska Lincoln campus, so it's perfectly situated if you're visiting for a game or other school event.
From the moment you walk into the lobby, you'll fall in love with this retro hotel.
This place embodies the 1960s, but it also celebrates everything Nebraska.
When you check in at the reception desk, you'll enjoy an homage to Johnny Carson, one of Nebraska's most beloved celebrities.
The colorful curtains behind the desk evoke memories of the good 'ol days on The Tonight Show. A painting depicting Johnny Carson on the cover of TV Guide graces the wall.
The comfortable lobby lounge area includes vintage-style furniture and old-school video games.
Check into your room, and you'll be handed a card key that's styled after a student ID, featuring a famous Nebraskan.
The retro theme carries on right into your room, which is full of quirky, fun details.
From the curtains adorned with Nebraska corn to the vintage-style carpet and wood paneling, this room is super groovy!
They've thought of every detail here.
Check out that emerald-green couch and vintage radio.
Your nightstand has a retro telephone and is made from a 60s-era television.
Modern conveniences, like your coffee maker, are cleverly hidden inside.
Everywhere you look, you'll find quirky little details.
And in the bathroom?
More Nebraska kitsch!
Do you have a furry family member?
Bring him along — pets are welcome at The Graduate, and there's no extra charge. They'll even present you with a special BarkBox that includes treats, toys, leash, and bowl to use during your stay.
You'll enjoy dining in John J's Chow Hall, which also has a retro theme.
Try the fried chicken with some sweet corn on the side.
Plan a staycation to Lincoln for a weekend full of retro fun!
