We recently accompanied my parents on a trip to Iowa to see some old family farms, graves and houses. Yeah, I know it doesn't sound like a ripping time, but it really was and one of the highlights was the Black Hawk Hotel.
Most of my trips to Cedar Falls/Waterloo have been business trips and mostly involving the university so I have stayed up there, but I was thrilled with the location of the BHI and downtown Cedar Falls is just a great place to walk around.
We had three rooms and each one was very unique. They were all very well appointed, comfortable and well maintained, very comfortable beds as well.
I can't say enough about the staff and how helpful and accommodating they were. This was only a three night trip and we all agreed we needed more time, especially in the county library genealogy room so we will be back in the fall, maybe see a UNI football game and stay the Black Hawk Inn again.
