Construction of a Marriott-affiliated hotel began early 2020. The hotel will be six stories and have approximately 155 rooms. In addition to the rooms, the hotel would have a full-service restaurant, coffee shop, gym and other amenities and could serve as a learning space for University of Nebraska-Lincoln students pursuing majors in hospitality, tourism and restaurant management. The hotel will be built near the intersection of 21st Street and Transformation Drive, adjacent to the new Rise Building that just opened last year and across the street from The Mill Coffee & Tea on Innovation Campus. Along with providing lodging accommodations for those attending the conference center at Innovation Campus, the hotel could also be used for businesses located at the park to host clients, and it will be a short distance from the Devaney Sports Center. Construction is anticipated to be complete in February 2022.
