Really exceeded my expectations. Very well run and the rooms were very nicely laid out. Lots of amenities of much higher priced hotels. Wifi was strong, bed was very comfortable (with lots of pillow choices), nice shower which was hot with great water pressure, and a decent workout area and a tremendous restaurant. Breakfast for two was included, and it...

Stayed here for a convention for a few days. The hotel, food and staff are amazing. The staff goes out of their way to help you in any way they can. The limo service was exceptional. The rooms are very large and very, very nice. Upscale amenities in the rooms. Conference rooms were well done. The food was outstanding! Would...

I enjoyed my recent stay at the Kirkwood Hotel in Cedar Rapids. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. The hotel rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet and the black and silver drapes keep the light out from the windows. The bathroom and especially the showers are very impressive. The Class Act restaurant offers some of the best food in...

Absolutely beautiful hotel and restaurant! Yes, it is a teaching and learning facility, but still better than most hotels I have stayed in. I was spoiled with the room - they did everything right! And the menu at the restaurant was terrific. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to everyone! Well done!

I stayed here during a recent two day business trip in Iowa. I usually go with one of the brand hotels that I already have rewards points with, but this hotel had such great reviews that I figured that I'd try it once, and see what happens. Lots of open (FREE!!!) parking, and check-in was nice and quick. The décor...

Stayed here on a last minute business trip. Usually like to stay where I can accumulate points but felt a wanted something different and the ability to order dinner in after a full day of travel. This hotel is beautiful. Even though it is 5 years old, it looks brand new. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the...

A very very nice stay. Staff was courteous. Hotel was new clean and classy. Bar makes the tastiest White Russian I've ever had. Note: there is no pool at the hotel. Location is on the outskirts of town and while not WAY out of the way, it's not super close to town either.

A former Iowan, I was planning to visit (and stay with) relatives, over the Christmas holiday. An unexpected impending ice and snow storm caused me to have to cut those plans a bit short - I needed to get to someplace near the Eastern Iowa Airport, for two nights, so that I'd be safe, and able to catch my flight...

My fiancé and I stayed at the Kirkwood Hotel while visiting family for Christmas. We checked in Christmas Eve to a beautiful king size room. It is hands down the best lit hotel room I've ever been in. I counted 9 lights not including the ones in the bathroom. With that much light you can't hide dirt. The room was...
