My wife and I had occasion to stay overnight in Cedar Rapids in early November 2009. We chose the Hampton Inn and Suites based on Trip Advisor reviews -- and boy, were those review right on the mark!
As one reviewer noted, this is a new hotel. Everything still looks bright and sparkly; nothing is worn down or worn out.
Pros: absolutely the largest breakfast lounge area I've seen in a mid-price hotel. (And the breakfast was not only free, but good, as well!) Great pillows; spacious room; large desk; nice "lap desk"; wonderful bathroom.
Cons -- and these are all weak cons: It's a block off a main street, but it's not particularly obvious how to get there. That's not the hotel's fault, clearly, but it's just a bit odd. Also in the realm of odd, our bed already had just the slightest sagging in the middle. (The hotel opened earlier this year!) The mattress was otherwise great. The rate wasn't outrageous, but it just seemed a bit high for this size town, on a Friday night when there weren't any major attractions in the area to drive the price up. But check the specials: we chose the "Gas n Go" offer, paying $20 extra to get a $25 BP gas card as part of the deal!
Check-in and check-out were both very easy and quick; the staff was cheerful and helpful.
The hotel is just two minutes from the interstate, and ten minutes from downtown, so it's very convenient for business and if you've got a child at Coe.
Nice place, nice rooms, great breakfast area, convenient to the interstate -- I recommend this highly!
