My wife and I stayed at the Residence Inn in Coralville, Iowa as part of a weekend getaway. We loved it! The hotel property is located on the western edge of Coralville/Iowa City and has very easy access to Interstate 80, but sits far back enough to not have any road noise. The mall is literally across the street. The mall has a movie theater that has movies starting at 10:00am and on Saturdays, the cost was $5.00. Great movie times for a quick movie ahead of lunch. Also, the mall has an indoor ice skating rink, but we didn't do any skating (but would consider next time). Down the road (about 1/2 mile, a Hy-Vee grocery store).
The Marriott staff at this property - very accommodating (we had a late checkout) and provided excellent local restaurant and cab service recommendations. There's a Longhorn Steakhouse adjacent to the property (perfect for a late night cocktail and dessert). Our room (Room 411) was outstanding and had plenty of room for us. We had stayed at the Marriott in Iowa City previously.....we felt this Residence Inn was a better property for us (given the location to the mall and the free breakfast buffet in the mornings).
Cab fare to downtown Iowa City was $18.00 plus tip - would highly recommend Marco's Taxi. Green/yellow mini-vans. Clean and fast for the to/from trip to downtown Iowa City.
The pool area was good-sized, clean and the workout area had very new treadmills and elliptical machines along with plenty of dumbbell free weights.
For our weekend getaway, this was an outstanding visit and we'd highly recommend this property.
