Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were HIGHLY IMPRESSED with this hotel from start to finish. This hotel matches all of the better/high-end hotels we've stayed at in Chicago and New York, but without the price. The rooms were large, beautifully decorated, and sound-proof. This is one classy hotel. The staff were very attentive and satisfied our needs. It is also close to the airport....

The Kirkwood is an excellent hotel. The staff is courteous, helpful and relaxed. The food is always top notch. (For dinner, I had a lamb wellington which was cooked perfectly!) This was my 4th trip to the Kirkwood and it's very consistent and never disappoints.

Beautiful hotel. Close to the airport. If you are looking for something close to downtown this is not the spot, but if you are flexible on location it is worth it. The hotel was very well decorated, very clean and the staff extremely helpful. The restaurant on site was very good. The lobby bar is small but a nice place...

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 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!
