I really have to find out what type of mattress they use at the Sheraton in Iowa City... Wow! After a long flight and a shower, I was fortunate to fall asleep in one of the most softest mattresses. I literally sunk into the bed, felt like I was sleeping on a cloud (one could only imagine). I woke up... More

These are usually nice places. However, this hotel is old and had the smallest bathroom of any hotel chain I have ever stayed in. The air conditioner rattled and was annoying and loud. The bathtub drain barely drained. These things were reported to the front desk. Checking in we had to go online with our phone in their lobby on... More

Very nice property, located downtown right on the pedestrian mall. Easy walk to downtown restaurants and the University of Iowa. Entire staff was very friendly and helpful. Indoor pool and a really nice fitness room.

We stayed there when we visited the University of Iowa campus. The hotel is very strategically located, short walk to the campus buildings and restaurants. The staff was very courteous. Our hotel room was not ready when we arrived so the three members of my party were given vouchers for some food and a drink at their restaurant.

I'm visiting Iowa from Sacramento and was super excited to get a hotel room at the Sheraton. It's located in the pedmall, in all the action. But after the rollaway was brought in we realized after finding bugs on two of the children that it was covered in bed bugs.We called the front desk and they immediately moved us to... More

Very clean, we booked in the club room. We were very comfortable and the plate in the evening was delicious as well as the breakfast.... not enough tables in the club room for breakfast but ok to eat in our room. Downtown view from club room was great. The only negative thing about our room ....it was rather noisy in... More

This place is the worst. Literally a dump. I paid extra to stay on the 'Club Level', their all the 'amenities level'. Huge mistake and waste of money. There were trays of food and garbage that were left in halls all weekend. Chicken sandwiches from room service were way under cooked. Surprised we haven't shown signs of salmonella, no thanks...

This Sheraton has been around a while. I'm from the Iowa City area originally and had our wedding reception here 14 years ago. The hotel has undergone a renovation since then, but it's still rough around the edges. You have to take the good with the bad at this hotel. Here are the things you should know. PROS: Location, location,... More

The water pressure in the shower was amazing. The room was spotless. I was on the side of the hotel away from the courtyard this time so it was quiet for sleeping. There are lots of great places to eat nearby (go to Whitey's Ice Cream if you do nothing else) and there are no other hotels in downtown Iowa... More

Very helpful front desk. Great concier/shuttle. Both bartenders were sociable and manager in bar went out of the way to bring wine and appetizers to room when I forgot id in room. Really dropped ball with catering and customer service with wedding party. Very unorganized and when asked for coffee which is normally out with or before cake was no... More
