Originally built in 1917, the Hotel Hartington serves as a place for gathering, conversation and making memories.

Which is why weddings, professional events and conferences, and social events are the hotel's bread and butter. Between The Grand Ballroom, The Tap Room – Hartington's basement speakeasy – and The Lobby Cafe, you'll have the option to create a more intimate reception, a larger, lavish party and everything else in between. We offer first-class spaces, 17 guest rooms and a caring staff who will meet your needs.


Everything you need for the perfect wedding is here at Hotel Hartington in northeastern Nebraska. 

There is no day more exciting than your wedding day. Choosing the Hotel Hartington for your ceremony or reception means way more than just having a space to say “I Do.” A truly unique venue to the area, you'll celebrate your nuptials in a nationally recognized historical landmark, complete with lodging accommodations for your guests, a dedicated-to-you staff, and several spaces in the hotel to house all of the big moments of the day or weekend.

A Breathtaking Space

At 2,600 square feet, The Grand Ballroom is our largest space and the perfect place for an unforgettable dinner. With its eye-catching chandeliers, dark wood trim and champagne-colored walls, your guests will feel first class.

Get-ready Spaces for the Ladies and 'Gents 

Enjoy the hours before the "I Do's" in a comfortable, open space with your closest friends and family in the Bridal Suite. The 'gents can roast and toast the groom in one of the hotel's large gathering spaces or in The Tap Room, the Hotel's basement speakeasy.

Delicious Dinner and Drinks

Our chefs can create a vast array of dining options for you and your guests, such as a themed menu around locally-inspired fare, a special dinner with specific meats and proteins, or whatever else your heart desires.

Celebration and Entertainment

Continue the evening’s festivities in The Grand Ballroom or move just downstairs to The Tap Room. It’s also an excellent place for guests to gather between the ceremony and dinner, or for the groom and his ‘gents to relax while the ladies are getting ready in the Bridal Suite just upstairs. 

Guest Lodging and Accommodations

One of the hardest things to find is a place for your guests to stay. With seventeen rooms complete with comfortable beds and amenities, your guests can rest in comfort. And each room is uniquely named after a famous historical character, so they'll be able to take a little piece of history home with them after the weekend.
