Stayed at this property for a marriage conference last weekend. The conference was very good, thank you, and a needed sit down. We obtained a handicap room, due to my wife recovering from a broken foot. The room was large and the accessibility aspects were adequate. The room noise, however was really annoying. Granted there was a lot of people moving around, due to the conference. Our room was near the stairwell and the noise of people marching on the stairs, opening/closing the "fire-doors" was constant. People were using the stairs mainly due the two painfully slow elevators being overwhelmed by the crowd. I could also follow the conversation of the party in both the next room and the upstairs room with clarity. On the good side, the restaurant serves good fair, with large portions, at an affordable price. They know how to pour a proper pint of Guinness. The bed we had was comfortable, but had several large square pillows, with several pint-sized pillows that seemed baffling. Fashion I suppose. Breakfast and lunch were buffets at $12 per person. I never rate buffets well, as I am a small eater and the price is always too high for a bagel and coffee. Good thing Panara Bread was near by. The venue handled the conference Ok and water, but not coffee was provided. There was plenty of parking. Dining around the area is good with mostly chains like Granite City and Applebee's. Cedar Rapids city center offers more eclectic restaurants. Wireless access was fast and effective. For some reason by Blackberry (old school) would not connect to the internet while inside the hotel, but worked fine outdoors. All other phone features worked properly. I guess this place is pretty run of the mill, no great value, but provided an adequate venue.
