This structure was no doubt converted from a National Mid-Priced Hotel Chain of indeterminate origin, possibly Ramada, but could be some other. I am not an expert on this.

We were given a tour of the Mansion by a very knowledgeable guide. Our guide enjoyed her job and made the tour fun. If you have the time and tours are available, it is worth seeing.

We did the Capitol tour - and noticed the Governors Mansion had tours the same day in the afternoon. Had lunch and decided to go for it. Worth the visit - some interesting decor and bits of Nebraska History. Would do it again!
