My employer had a party this past weekend. The ballroom, food etc was all amazing!! I was able to get a room for the night and overall the room was nice, clean and beds were very comfy. My only negative was the next morning I tried to shower and I had the water completely turned to hot the whole time...

This place must be a secret as I was there over a weekend and it was not at all crowded. Now let me tell you why I 5 starred it. You enter and there is a real welcome to our place and the people really talk to you, not that stiff hello with the painted smile. The rooms are so...

This beautiful hotel in Cedar Rapid feels like it should be in a major metropolitan city, But with a much friendlier staff. The rooms are fabulous and the lobby is stunning! The food is also wonderful the kitchen is run by the culinary school at Kirkwood Center, This is the only place to stay in Cedar Rapids!

This was a most surprising hotel that we happened upon because a flight delay forced an unanticipated overnight stay. Convenient to airport with shuttle. The hotel is immaculate. The young staff in training knock themselves out to please the guests. We ate dinner in the restaurant. A high end dinner equal to a fine restaurant in New York City. Amazing.

Room was delightful, very chic and CLEAN! Restaurant was awesome. I really enjoyed the Kirkwood students working there. They were so polite, and I felt spoiled the entire time. It is out from center of town some, but the quality makes up for that!

My wife and I took a "week-ender" to celebrate her birthday. From the minute we walked in the door, till the moment we left, the hotel personnel were just terrific. Our room was spacious, clean, bright and lovely. .....and cleaned promptly. We also had dinner (and breakfast on Sunday) at CLASS ACT......a restaurant and personnel that completely reflect it's name....

The hotel is outstanding. Beautiful. Spacious and unbelievable staff. Be aware it is run by professionals but also students as it is a teaching hotel. This makes it even better in my opinion. The staff goes above and beyond for anything for you. This is the top hotel in Cedar Rapids imo. It is somewhat out of the way but...
