What a gem. The front desk people could not have been better -very friendly, accommodating with recommendations, The rooms are very well appointed. The only thing lacking was a mini fridge, but they had everything else you would expect from a top hotel. Bed and bedding wonderful. We left fairly early in the morning, but had a nice breakfast at... More

Every staff member who we met was as nice as could be in this hotel partially staffed with students from the nearby college. The room itself was nice; high ceilings, generous size room, lovely bathroom with a walk in shower, good supply of towels and nice toiletries. Room for improvements: no bottled water in the room, no turndown service, front... More

This is a very nice hotel. It is used by the nearby college for real time learning about the hotel industry. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great suggestions on restaurants not at the hotel location. One of the things that was a drawback to the hotel was the location. It is about a 20 minute drive into the... More

We wondered why all of the reviews were not "good" but "great". We were there with our son and family for a reunion of sorts. The room was very clean and perfect. A full array of device charging and plug ins. Chromecast available on the TV. Asked for an extra hour for checkout and they made that available. We couldn't... More

Reserved a room here based on other online reviews. The hotel is located at the edge of a community college campus on the south side of Cedar Rapids. I literally arrived at the hotel after driving on a narrow road between fields of corn. Apparently the community college offers a degree in hospitality, and may of the students work at... More

I look forward to staying at Hotel at Kirkwood when in town. Modern and fresh feel throughout the hotel. The rooms are large and bright; everything has a lux feel; services is top notch. Wine tasting from 5-6 p.m. was a plus. Unlike many other hotels, pictures of the rooms and facility are exactly what you will experience!!!!!

Our all too brief stay in this hotel was excellent. We were only there from 10 pm until 6:30 am so we only saw our room and the lobby but both were impressive. The lobby was very modern and clean as was the room. Trendy but not silly or try hard. The room has little touches like buttons next to... More

Arriving after midnight, I was greeted by the most pleasant young person. Checked in promptly and my stay was wonderful from there till the end. The restaurant, the lobby wine hour, transportation, a wedding ceremony and reception, and my room.... although a bit noisy in the early morning from traffic outside the front of the building, was spacious and comfortable....

The kirkwood hotel is extraordinary. I love the student process and the excellent culinary presentation of the Classic Act restuarant. We stay there regularly during football season and have never been disappointed. Jim

Great decor, rooms clean and comfortable. For hotels in this price range, I am used to more amenities such as a complimentary drink or breakfast, fitness center. (We were there on a weekend. I understand there is a breakfast offered complimentary Monday through Thursday). The fitness center is off site.
