Heritage Chic


216 North 11th Street, Lincoln, NE 68508

The Kindler 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. The creative spirit of the late Ulysses native and hotel namesake, Ken Kindler, lives on through artful details and the hospitality we extend to our guests. The Kindler Hotel’s design was conceived by award-winning Ross Vincent Design.

Our 45 well-appointed guest rooms take inspiration from Lincoln, Nebraska’s rich cultural history. Our double queen rooms are perfect for guests traveling with a family or a group, and our Lincoln Suites are ideal for a business trip or a romantic getaway. Our warm and attentive staff are always on hand to ensure your stay at Lincoln’s first and only boutique hotel meets your standards, and ours. Ideally located in the heart of Lincoln, Nebraska, The Kindler Hotel offers the area’s first and only boutique lodging experience. Our first-in-class service, distinctive dining, unique bar menus, and a wide array of amenities create an unrivaled guest experience. It fuses gracious hospitality with a contemporary art collection for a truly memorable stay in Husker Nation.

Located in dynamic downtown Lincoln, we’re surrounded by revered attractions and top-rated restaurants — all of which are within walking distance or a brief drive. See the Nebraska Cornhuskers in action at Memorial Stadium, take the kids to the Lincoln Children’s Museum, or experience exquisite art at the Sheldon Museum of Art. The unique history and vibrant culture of Nebraska are within reach. Locals and guests alike come together in the lavishly appointed lounge to enjoy uniquely crafted cocktails and a seasonal dining menu developed by Brian Boitano — world-renowned Olympic skater and Food Network star. Savor satisfying dishes and locally sourced ingredients in a hip and welcoming atmosphere. Boitano’s Lounge is the perfect place for dinner or nightcap.

The Kindler Hotel is dedicated to Nebraska welder, industrial artist, husband, father, grandfather, and brother, Ken Kindler, who shared his passion and exuberant copper sculptures with the people of Lincoln. You can view his signature copper work on display in the lobby of the hotel.
