About Us

OUR HISTORY

The Nebraska Hotel & Lodging¬†Association was founded in 1973 under the name of the Nebraska Lodging Association. The original Association was represented by two groups, the Nebraska Hotel Association and the Nebraska Motel Association. The Association was formed to represent Nebraska’s now nearly 700 hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts and other lodging facilities in the state. The facilities that comprise our members are united in one basic purpose: Provide the highest quality lodging, food, meetings, events and other guest services to travelers, meeting planners and other users of lodging properties in Nebraska.

The Nebraska Hotel & Lodging¬†Association’s focus has been to provide:

  • Educational programs for facility owners and their employees
  • Representation of the industry before Legislative and Regulatory Bodies both at the federal and state level
  • Coordination with other travel and tourism industries and associations
  • Encouragement of truthful and fair play in advertising and general business practices
  • To bring about a better public understanding of the aims and benefits of the lodging industry
  • Assistance to state officials in enforcing provisions of law concerning motels and hotels
  • Services and products to the membership to enhance their day-to-day operations and their bottom lines such as the natural gas buying program, workers compensation and health insurance programs, credit card programs, and other services giving lower rates to members of the Association
