Great decor, rooms clean and comfortable. For hotels in this price range, I am used to more amenities such as a complimentary drink or breakfast, fitness center. (We were there on a weekend. I understand there is a breakfast offered complimentary Monday through Thursday). The fitness center is off site.

It was with a little trepidation, after learning that it was a "teaching hotel," that I booked my room at the Kirkwood. What a nice surprise, however, upon arriving at the modern, nicely furnished hotel not too far out of downtown Cedar Rapids. It felt more like one of the expensive boutique hotels I usually book, and everything about it... More

While driving across country we had miscalculated our timing and realized we could push a little further and still enjoy a nice evening. We had hoped for Iowa City but everything was booked due to a concert so we found ourselves about 10 miles off Route 80 in Cedar Rapids at the Kirkwood. It was wonderful! Beautiful, clean, very friendly... More

Everything was great, from service to comfort of room. Breakfast portions were a bit oversized. Really admire the student training program. Jared the bartender was top notch. Plenty of parking available.

My husband and I have stayed at the Hotel at Kirkwood several times and have always loved it. The rooms are beautiful, clean and contemporary. We stayed in a suite last week for our 25th anniversary and it was magnificent. The staff is always super helpful and the food at the restaurant always delicious!

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.
