Approx. 1,5 miles from the downtown scene. Very friendly staff upon check-in. Hotel is only a little over a year old. Décor is fresh and fun. Rooms were spotless. Breakfast provided every morning in a beautiful eating area----waffles, cereal, fruit, eggs, bacon, etc. WiFi in the hotel for guest use was fast. Pool area with towels and hot tub. Didn't swim, so I can't comment on the temp of the water. Fitness room is large, light and well-equipped! The beds have comfy feather comforters and pillows. Coffee maker, iron, dryer, frig, micro in our standard 2-bed room. Good security after 11 PM as you must use your room key even to enter the lobby area. Only downside was being able to hear the little kids above us on the third floor running back and forth in the room above us. Could also hear doors being closed in the hallway outside our room.

Great hotel to stay at especially if you are visiting students at the University of Iowa. It's in a perfect location. Hotel is modern and clean. The pool is nice and the breakfast is very good. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel

This hotel is a pleasant surprise. It's a good value for Iowa City, and we will be back. The hotel is pretty new, and very clean. The bathrooms were sparkling and we appreciated the hotel for being well kept. Except for some road construction, the stay was lovely and we slept well!

Stayed here for a football weekend. King suite had a pullout couch and could fit a rollaway, so had enough room for 5 of us in 1 room. Room was clean and quiet. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast is a plus - standard Hampton breakfast but the staff was really friendly and fun with the kids. There's a Bruegger's across the street if you want something else. Big plus was that this hotel is walking distance to Kinnick stadium - took about 35 minutes with my 6 and 8 y/o - nice stroll with views of the river. Probably 15-20 min walk for adults. Can walk downtown from hotel as well. Cost was significantly less than staying downtown. Fitness room was useful with new equipment. Pool was small and plain but looked clean. Will definitely stay here again.

This hotel is great. It is brand new, clean, and convenient. The fitness room is nice and I never really have a complaint when I stay here. My only complaint is that you can hear doors close while you are in your room.

Great hotel, great area. Overall excellent. Only issue was too much light in the AM through the curtains, and a little noise from the A/C. Very clean, good breakfast, and nice facility. Helpful staff. Easy parking, well lit, nice lobby area. Easy internet access, very comfortable bed.

Realatively new and clean. Shower didn't work correctly. No one at desk when I tried to check out for an early flight. Anyone could have walked in off the street so I question the security of the hotel.
