We wanted to stay at the Sheraton- Iowa City because of the location in the middle of Iowa City where my niece attends school. My family of 20+ met in Iowa City to celebrate my mother's 75th birthday. We understood that there was a Big 10 athletic event happening where all of the athletes were staying at the hotel. With...

Once again a very nice place to stay, so convenient to the college-hip downtown area. OK, my key cards didn't work the first or second times I went to my room, they fixed that promptly each time. As an SPG Platinum they sent me a bottle of wine and a cheese plate. Nice! I enjoy staying here and hope you... More

In January my wife and I went to Iowa City to meet our first grandchild. The Sheraton on South Dubuque is literally minutes from the Medical Center - great location. When I say 'Location and Service' rise above I mean they combined to rise above the room. Disclaimer! This was not originally a Sheraton property so they are not to... More

4:30 am and I can't sleep because the noisy HVAC unit keeps rumbling on and off. If you are a light sleeper, don't stay here. While I have my unit set on the constant fan setting and I have earplugs, I hear the heat/AC in my neighbor's room turning on and off every 10 minutes. I chose this Sheraton because... More

This is the perfect place to stay for a Hawkeye game or college visit. You can park in the ramp and not need your car until you are leaving town. Staff are always friendly and seem excited about what is going on in town. Book Early though for football games and be aware that you will pay for the convenience.

I stay at this hotel at least twice per month for business and it is an exceptional place. The staff is always professional, friendly and quite accommodating. Occasionally I have a room location I don't like and they have always made a change if requested. They have a wonderful happy hour in the lobby on certain evenings that serves good... More

Room was small. Bathroom was tiny, with no exhaust fan. No refrigerator in our room and ice machine on our floor was broken. Room was clean. Biggest issue was being put in a room with a balcony overlooking the exercise area/pool. It was so loud beyween 9 am and 11 pm that you could barely hear the television in your... More

We do want to ensure the location in the hotel is one that enhances your stay instead of detract. While each guestroom does not have an individual fans, we have a... More

The heater in my room did not work and it was January in Iowa. I asked for help but the maintenance office could not fix it so I slept in my down parka. It was about 55 degrees in my room. Luckily I had extra clothes. There was also food ground into the carpet in the lobby which was unpleasant.... More

My family had occasion to go to Iowa City, and the reason for our visit necessitated we stay downtown near the University. The Sheraton had an indoor pool and my 13 year old daughter likes to swim, so we asked for (and received) a poolside room. We arrived at 3pm and had no problem checking in. The receptionist was friendly... More

We are frequent Starwood hotel customers, so when we needed to make an urgent visit to someone in the hospital in Iowa City, we selected this Sheraton. It's in walking distance of the University of Iowa hospital, and is located in the center of the university, so there are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. I was disappointed... More
