This is a very good hotel with a great location. Rooms are nice, clean, and the lobby area and other public areas are very good.

However, how is the price so high for Iowa City, and pay for parking?

So a good choice, though in my opinion the Homewood Suites will be a better value.

It's a new(ish) Marriott. And that's a good thing. You know what to expect... predictable, clean, welcoming, and comfortable. Nothing exciting but very nice.

The most distinguishing feature of the hotel is its immediate proximity to the Iowa River and adjacent wetlands. There are easily accessible nature trails and beautiful views from all of the waterside rooms.

The location is convenient, right off of the freeway, but a little odd. It's part of one of those "instant, artificial town" mixed use developments that is still under development. The development doesn't yet seem to be successful, so it's mostly empty land and vacant storefronts. Nothing bad but not particularly compelling. You definitely need a car to get anywhere interesting.

Of special note, the hotel has a very warm and welcoming library (complete with fireplace) filled with books associated with the Iowa Writers Workshop. A nice place to relax and read or work.

I probably would have preferred to be closer to downtown, but the Coralville Marriott is a very solid choice. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Request a waterside room on an upper floor

This fantastic hotel is undoubtedly the best I've stayed in: I really wasn't expecting the warmth of the people of Coralville and Iowa City as reflected by this great advertisement for Mariott and American heartland hospitality. The facilities were excellent, spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and the food and service were second to none. The shuttle service was absolutely faultless. I would absolutely recommend this fantastic friendly facility. I'd love to go back to Iowa at some point in the future and when I do I'll try to stay here again, but for leisure so that I can learn more about this beautiful region and it's warm friendly people. Thanks Marriott for making me feel at home.

Stayed here for the weekend that I was attending an Iowa football game.
Located quite close to the stadium.
Nice hotel, very cool feature is the Iowa Writers Workshop library located off the lobby.

Everyone I dealt with was friendly, helpful.
Decent sized room overlooking the nature trails behind the hotel.
Comfy bed, nice restaurant, HOT water in the shower.
Honestly, what more could you possibly need?

Lovely hotel -- great service. But what makes this hotel so special is the library devoted to authors from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. Maintained by a local library, guests can check out any number of notable works. The river walk is both beautiful and peaceful. Highly recommend.

My husband's cousing got married here, and the entire family stayed for the weekend. The property is very well taken care of, in a good location, and the reception room was beautiful and a great size. The rooms are quite clean and the front desk was fast and friendly. A great option if you're looking for something close to the University, but away form the hustle and bustle of the nightlife downtown.

Quick note-- there is a fun brew pub about half a block from the hotel open late for after-wedding cocktails, a definite good time :)
