We always enjoy dinner, lunch or brunch at the Kirkwood Hotel. It's a very unique place. Wonderful food and very attentive staff. We have also stayed at the hotel for an annual event and really like the design and comfort of the rooms

I stayed here three nights for work that took place in the meeting rooms at Kirkwoodl. I can't say enough about the eager, helpful staff and the amazing comfort of the bed and pillows (I have back and neck "issues"). The desk chair was wonderfully ergonomic, as well. The only reason I couldn't give a tip-top review is that I... More

We stayed at The Hotel at Kirkwood Center after visiting the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library in West Branch, Iowa. This hotel is the best I've stayed at for some time. Décor, comfort, service, and cuisine were first class.

Staff was attentive, courteous, and very professional. Small first class hotel with a touch of the home town feeling. From was well appointed, bed comfortable, and housekeeping took very good care. I highly recommend this for anyone traveling to CR or even Iowa City.

I'll start off by saying my family and friends stayed here for 2 nights for my wedding. My husband and I stayed in the presidential suite, which is quite large. Our room had a mini fridge, microwave, sink, and coffee maker. The bathroom even had a jetted jacuzzi. Everything was clean and modern. Only minor flaw: our toilet roll holder... More

The staff at the Kirkwood is very helpful and energetic. The hotel suffers from a location out away from town. The meeting spaces are large and well appointed. The food/catering services at the hotel are also very nice

Great service, giant room, they even paid for my taxi from the airport! Clean and near everything (7 minutes to airport). I can't imagine a better experience. Room nice and quiet even though I was on second floor near ice machine and exercise room! Standard room was size of a suite.

We traveled here to celebrate the wedding and reception for my niece. This place is absolutely beautiful. The room the wedding was in has a beautiful fountain and LOTS of glass windows. The reception room was amazing--loved the lighting. Very impressive food for the Buffet. Servers were very pleasant. This place is fairly new and very clean.

My wife and I spent a long weekend here. While the facility was clean and modern (i.e., not much style), it was sorely lacking for any traveler. Being July, we really wanted to take a cool dip in the afternoon. But...no pool! My wife wanted a cup of coffee as we walked out one morning. No complimentary coffee in the... More
