Everything about this hotel was excellent. It is owned by the local college and they go above and. beyond to give you a 5 star hotel experience. The staff was excellent, the hotel was beautiful, the outside courthyard was beautiful. Rooms were updated with all the technology, great bathrooms, comfortable beds with a lot of pillows. The restaurant was excellent. I would not consider staying in any hotel in the Cedar Rapids area after experiencing The Hotel at Kirkwood Center.

With Hotel and restaurant made up of students learning to become staff at the best hotels in the world, you will be pampered beyond your expectations. From turn down service, pastries in your room and eco-friendly amenities this is a standout in Iowa. I will only stay here in the future when going to Cedar Rapids. Well worth the location (you will need to drive to go anywhere) parking is free.

Great hotel, very clean and efficient. The handicap room was wheelchair accessible and made mobility easy for our stay. The hotel is in the process of being renovated but it did not effect or interrupt our stay. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful New Year's Eve dinner-lodging package! Exceptional food, service, accommodations, and value. The Class Act on-site restaurant prepares "Iron Chef" quality dishes at an affordable price. We will definitely be back.

We had a fantastic stay in one of the suites for a birthday getaway. It was clean, spacious, and the staff was very attentive. They have things in place to keep everyone safe.
There were not many guests in the hotel at the time we stayed. I will say that the rooms were not as insulted as I would have thought we were at the end of the hallway and could hear other guests in their rooms in the evening. Not partying or anything, but if you are a light sleeper maybe ask for a fan or bring your own to drown out the extra noise. So, it wasn’t the full quiet night away from other rooms like I had requested, which was a little disappointing. Minus that and the beds are a bit firm (for our liking), but not terrible. We did overall have a great stay.

Odyssey698760, Thank you for sharing your recent stay with us. I am so sorry to hear that you did not experience a totally relaxing evening. We do not typically receive noise/ insulation concerns so I am very sorry. We do have fans available, as well as the radio in the bedroom to create some background noise. We have recently completed a renovation and the our beds are all brand new. I do understand that sleeping expectations vary, I am sorry you were not 100% comfortable. Please reach out directly to address your concerns. Our guest comfort is very important to us. Jackie

Outstanding in every way and exceeded expectations in every category!
Room Design, Food, Service and Value are comparable to what we have paid for $500 a night rooms in other places. Iowa might not have the beach or mountains but they more than make up for it with this hidden gem. When traveling across the country a one night stay like this is like winning the lottery!

I have been lucky enough to stay in hotels all over the world: the Ritz at Lahaina; the Caledonian in Edinburgh; the Park Hyatt in Tokyo; even Brunei's Empire.

It is a beautiful hotel, they do everything right and made my stay completely enjoyable in every way.

BUT.  The customer service is quite simply the best I have ever experienced in my life.  EV.  ER.  The bellhops, cleaning staff, and front desk folks could not have done any better in my eyes: Leslie, especially, deserves to be singled out for praise.  They went above and beyond to a degree that exceeds that of my favorite hotel in the world, the Park Hyatt in Nishishinjuku.

For that I thank them, and recommend this modern, fashionable hotel in Cedar Rapids (!) above all others.

My husband and I stayed one night on a trip through the Midwest. It was perfect. The room was spacious, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom also good sized, the shower terrific.. The lobby and rooms are upscale and welcoming. It was July 4, most restaurants closed, and when I called the hotel to ask about dinner options after our 8:30 arrival, they noted that the kitchen closed at 8 but offered to have food made ahead of time and ready for us at the front desk. In fact, they had our salads in the room fridge along with the wine we'd ordered, which they comped since there'd been some confusion (caused my me) on the reservation. (Plus real wine glasses, a thoughtful addition). It was so quiet and calm, we definitely had a sense of being pampered. The to go breakfast options were great. All hotels should be like this!
