Who knew Iowa would have a unique, comtemporary hotel with outstanding service. We were upgraded to a fabulous suite on 4th floor. Everything was good about this hotel, even the lawn mowed design. All ammenities were good - includes robes.

This hotel is operated by and for Hospitality Management students at nearby Kirkwood Community College. Their earnestness and professionalism set them apart from the jaded, time-worn employees at so many hotels. The hotel is also ultra-green in its operation and outlook and saves several hundred thousand dollars a year with its environmentally friendly practices. Finally, the hotel is Euro-chic in... More

The Hotel at Kirkwood is fresh, beautiful and a real gem. It is part of a community college and is staffed with the students. The restaurant is top notch and the lounge is very nice also. It is very convenient to the Eastern Iowa Airport and major interstate highways. Staff is friendly and engaging. Parking is sooo easy. If you... More

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at The Hotel at Kirkwood Center this past weekend and were pleasantly surprised with our experience. The rooms were spacious and well-appointed, the restaurant at the hotel is not your typical hotel restaurant and our host was gracious and professional. Brian and his team at the front desk did an excellent job... More

I wish that we stayed at this hotel (even though staying with family was fun). I am sure that our experience would have been over the top. As we entered, a staff member greeted us and showed us the way to our gathering. We were in Cedar Rapids for a class reunion, with the Kirkwood as our dinner venue. The... More

We spent a night here last weekend after a wedding reception located at the hotel. What a lovely hotel! Rooms were way nice, great furnishings, comfy bed, all in all a great place! The decor throughout the hotel was modern and way cool. I believe the staff consisted of students at kirkwood and they did a great job! Could improve... More

Layout and decor of this hotel we're a sight to see. Very modern, really clean and a personable staff as well! Located on the community college campus just south of town, but just a short spin to downtown.

The Hotel at Kirkwood provided just what we were looking for: a quiet, nearby get-a-way with a splash of style. The Hotel is situated on the Kirkwood Community College campus between a modern looking attached convention center, equestrian center, and parking lot, all of which are affiliated with the community college. However, it felt more like we were in the... More

I ended up booking this hotel for a couple of days based on the other reviews that I saw. When I walked in I was amazed at the decor and layout of the hotel -- very elegant and modern! The room was spacious and very clean. The bathrooms are also modern and nicely laid out. Many hotels could take a... More

How often is it that you check in to a hotel and feel like you've walked into an artistically designed, quiet and relaxing environment? The Hotel at Kirkwood Center is a gem, set in a bucolic setting just south of the city center. From the open, modern entry to the outside patio, the locally grown ingredients used in the delightful... More
