Grabbed this last-second express deal on Priceline due to late baseball tournament and went for this high-rated hotel as a blind book. Not disappointed... but we're a family of four (7 & 10-year olds) so mom, dad and son had to sleep in the king and daughter on the cot that she described as "sleeping on metal rods"... plus the...

I've stayed here many times, the staff treats me like family. The food is really , really good. My client said it the best, " you could set this hotel down on Madison Ave. and it would be in the same catagory as other New York 4 star hotels"

Fashionable rooms, attentive staff and lovely lobby make this hotel a welcome surprise on the prairie! This was my second stay, and I will return anytime business brings me to the area.

We stay here every year for a horse show on the college campus. And this is by far the nicest hotel we have stayed in outside of New York City. The staff is superb in their customer service.

Having read the reviews before we booked on our recent trip to Iowa, Kirkwood seemed like a no-brainer. There's nothing like experiencing it first hand, however! No one is exaggerating. They truly do take "helpful" to a whole new level. The rooms are huge! We tried to fill (just for fun) all the available horizontal space with our luggage, etc.,...

Really exceeded my expectations. Very well run and the rooms were very nicely laid out. Lots of amenities of much higher priced hotels. Wifi was strong, bed was very comfortable (with lots of pillow choices), nice shower which was hot with great water pressure, and a decent workout area and a tremendous restaurant. Breakfast for two was included, and it...

I enjoyed my recent stay at the Kirkwood Hotel in Cedar Rapids. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. The hotel rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet and the black and silver drapes keep the light out from the windows. The bathroom and especially the showers are very impressive.

Absolutely beautiful hotel and restaurant! Yes, it is a teaching and learning facility, but still better than most hotels I have stayed in. I was spoiled with the room - they did everything right! And the menu at the restaurant was terrific. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to everyone! Well done!
