We went to Cedar Falls for a wedding and the bride set us up in the Black Hawk instead of the commercial hotels near the reception site. What a blessing! It is a beautiful place with a lot of character you won't find in a chain hotel. We stayed in a suite in the top floor where they took several rooms combined them and enlarged the bathroom. The tiled floor in the bath was heated, the jacuzzi shower was wonderful and they even had a little rubber ducky on side. Cute! The room was very comfortable and quiet. The only downside was the refridgerator was actually a wine cooler and for a long weekend a fridge would be a better option. Nearby is a great Italian restaurant, a fantastic cupcake shop, and lots of fun shops for you to visit. It was the end of October and the Farmers market a block away was a delight to walk through and find treats for the morning. Even though it is right downtown, they have a restricted parking lot that made it easy. And being close to the river there is a lot of area to run, walk, and exercise.
