This location fell well short of the basic, solid offerings you would hope to receive from a downtown Sheraton. Quick sampling of problems: 1.) The free internet service was lousy, and perhaps they don't care in hopes that you'll pay for the premium service. 2.) My dinner at the restaurant was slightly below mediocre. It was a set of three... More

This hotel is a decent place to stay, but check your room before you unpack. Make sure the air conditioning or heat works. Whatever you do, DON'T choose the "Green" option where they don't clean your room! It's a complete ripoff.

Two blocks from the old capitol with college activity all around. Good eating places in the area and a comfortable college feel to the area. Rooms are adequate with beds a bit too soft. Comfortable rooms and bathroom and shower. Staff is helpful and friendly with professional dress and attitude. Charges for parking and........gym use. Thumbs down.

After a rough day of travel delays,we arrived about 10PM. The desk staff was great and told us where we could grab a sandwich and drink. As it turned out the hotel is on this pedestrian mall with one PUB after another.The bed was great.thick down mattress pad and nice down comforter. The room was nice,clean and in good condition.One... More

Hotel is nice. Bathrooms are small and tight. But we slept well and rate was decent. Loved the quaint downtown walking area adjacent to the hotel; although the smoking crowd seemed to be everywhere. Hard to breathe at times. Would stay there again but maybe venture out a little earlier.

Once again, this property proves that the hotel is made by its staff. Located in what I assume is the middle of Iowa City, this hotel has a very downtown feel. I checked in after 12+ hours on the road. The front desk clerk seemed efficient if not entirely warm and welcoming. I clearly asked for a rooms without an... More

When roses were delivered to my room I mentioned to the employee that my husband had sent them from NYC for our 33rd wedding anniversary. Later that day the hotel sent me champagne and strawberries and cream with the sweetest note, congratulating me and saying they were sorry I couldn't be with my husband on our anniversary. Whenever I had... More

We travelled to Iowa City with another couple for a medical visit at U of I Hospital, and decided to make a long vacation week out of it. Sheraton is in the heart of the Ped Mall, with fun restaurants and drinking establishments. The hotel staff is one of the best I have experienced. We saw them go out of... More

We got into Iowa City late on the evening of our arrival. We were greeted at the desk with a friendly face and a speedy check-in. Luckily, I had read on previous post about the cost of parking, which was $12 for all night and the entire next day. We didn't leave until 5pm the next day. It would have... More

This is my second stay at this hotel. Both times for business. Check in is always personable and easy. You can make a green choice and opt out of housekeeping ($5 voucher for our choosing to do so). Wonderful location. Lots of coffee, wine And meal choices within a few blocks. I was treated very well, had a comfortable stay... More
