This was a most surprising hotel that we happened upon because a flight delay forced an unanticipated overnight stay. Convenient to airport with shuttle. The hotel is immaculate. The young staff in training knock themselves out to please the guests. We ate dinner in the restaurant. A high end dinner equal to a fine restaurant in New York City. Amazing.

Room was delightful, very chic and CLEAN! Restaurant was awesome. I really enjoyed the Kirkwood students working there. They were so polite, and I felt spoiled the entire time. It is out from center of town some, but the quality makes up for that!

My wife and I took a "week-ender" to celebrate her birthday. From the minute we walked in the door, till the moment we left, the hotel personnel were just terrific. Our room was spacious, clean, bright and lovely. .....and cleaned promptly. We also had dinner (and breakfast on Sunday) at CLASS ACT......a restaurant and personnel that completely reflect it's name....

The hotel is outstanding. Beautiful. Spacious and unbelievable staff. Be aware it is run by professionals but also students as it is a teaching hotel. This makes it even better in my opinion. The staff goes above and beyond for anything for you. This is the top hotel in Cedar Rapids imo. It is somewhat out of the way but...

A training ground for hotel mgt the hotel is a few years old, nice rooms, furnishings and a great farm to table restaurant. Service can very with the experience of the staff but if you are in Cedar Rapids this is one of the best hotels. Convenient to the airport and they have a shuttle service as well.

Intriguing design features -- both in the public areas and in the room -- and very friendly people at the desk. The restaurant -- "Class Act" -- is also excellent. We had a tiny glitch with the billing (after the fact) but it was corrected easily via telephone. I'd definitely come back.
