Overall, I agree with the reviews that are posted below. Hotel is lovely, service is good, rooms are nice sized with comfortable beds, etc. Access to wetlands area is really nice and deck area off the lobby is really nice for relaxing and having the first cup of coffee in the morning. the Writers Lounge is a nice touch as well and is relaxing space for sure.
Where I disagree is any reference to the rooms being soundproofed and therefore quiet in the event that you get loud next door neighbor(s) or group of teens running in the hallway. For whatever reason, soundproofing of the rooms was omitted when the hotel was built. To the hotel's credit, security was able to get the offending parties to quiet down but only after two calls to the front desk and after 11:00 pm.
Another noise issue, while not as bothersome as that listed above, is the noise of the elevator equipment. Our room was around six rooms down from the elevator lobby on the 7th floor and you could hear the elevator equipment running all the time. Not super loud, but you could hear it for sure.
Overall, if floors are quiet, hotel is very nice. If you get a teenage soccer team on your floor, not so much. What good is nice hotel if you cannot get a good nights sleep.

Room Tip: Book room away from elevators. Noise level not terrible but discernible.

Stayed at the Marriott for a convention weekend. This Marriott has some of the most comfortable beds and EXCELLENT bedding and pillows. Rooms are modern and clean, it would be nice if they had a mini fridge in the rooms, I know the suites have them, but I didn't get a suite for this weekend. Great restaurants within walking distance, close proximity to interstate and short car trip to downtown Iowa City. Rooms were clean, staff was helpful, conference was well run. I will stay here again.

This is a very nice property. If you can, order some pizza down the way and sit outside in the back and eat it while looking at the walkway and river. It's a nice touch and adds life to a view that would otherwise be of a close by Hwy 80.

I have stayed here several times. The folks are quite nice here. The rooms tend to be a bit on the pricier side but.... not much more than the hotels up the road. This is heads and shoulders better than most anything else here.

Had a breakfast meeting here. The Chicken andouille hash was very tasty! Surprisingly, all the breakfast items on the Edgewater menu were reasonably priced. The writers museum is also kind of cool, so check that out (next to the elevators).

Room Tip: Wig & Pen pizza down the road is great. get it to go and eat out back. The El Ranchero is a very...

An excellent full service Marriott located 15 minutes from the Herbert Hoover historical site and right down the road from the University of Iowa. Check in was fine. The room was spacious and very comfortable. All rooms had complimentary internet which is unusual for a full Marriott. The internet speed was fine for most business needs. Onsite restaurant and bar had an extensive menu with healthy choices and the service was solid. Parking was in a garage next door at a fee. I dislike parking fees at hotels but it seems to be typical for first class hotels. For the platinum Marriott members, the concierge lounge offered a wide and tasty dinnertime selection and the gentleman supervising this was very friendly. A wonderful stay and the physical look of the hotel was very appealing.

The rooms are modern and nice. Perhaps a little small but still nice. The breakfast was nice with polite and helpful staff who went out of their way to accomodat my wife's gluten allergy. I would stay there again without hesitation.

I have elderly family in Iowa City and travel to this area several times a year. I always stay at this Marriott property. It is well located for my needs and very easy to access from the highway. While others may prefer to stay at one of the downtown hotels, Iowa City is relatively small and easy to get around so I have never felt like I was too far from anything staying in Coralville; and parking downtown can be a pain at times.

This is a relatively new Marriott, very well appointed and situated on the riverfront with lovely terrace, walkways and other amenities. The service and staff are excellent. Since when I travel here I am dealing with very stressful elder care issues, I see this hotel as my safe oasis. It is clean, wonderful beds and bedding, good restaurant and a charming library right off the lobby that is a tribute to Iowa City's fame as a haven for writers.
