LINCOLN, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel, the #1 hotel in Lincoln, Nebraska, is offering an out-of-this-world deal for the Solar Eclipse weekend August 18-21. The hotel’s Solar Eclipse Package provides a special experience for guests who want to see and enjoy one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights.

As a community, Lincoln will celebrate the eclipse with entertainment opportunities throughout the entire eclipse weekend.
With rates starting at $259, the Cornhusker’s Solar Eclipse Package includes: overnight guestroom accommodations for two, breakfast buffet for two in The Café and complimentary valet parking.
