    Great Place

    This place was a nice surprise. Comfy, clean and modern room. Parking at the garage around the back but you could walk through to the hotel without going outside so that was nice. We ate dinner at the rooftop restaurant next door the first night and the food/drinks/ambiance was incredible. The breakfast at our hotel over the weekend was outstanding, much better than expected! Weekdays were grab and go muffins, cereals, yogurt, stuff like that, but weekends they pulled out all the stops. They had a guy there making French toast and eggs and various things and he made me some scrambled eggs with cheese that I swear are the best eggs I’ve ever had. Not kidding, better than my own. And I LOVED their fancy coffee machine where I got my latte every morning, it was hard to leave that! Service was very friendly and professional at all times and we truly enjoyed our stay. Husband was interviewing for a position in Iowa City and the folks here helped leave us with a very good impression of the area. Thank you!

  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel itself was quite clean and well-appointed and the staff was helpful. The only caveat--my room was next to an outdoor courtyard. The noise from the courtyard transmitted into the room interfering with sleeping. Also, I could not open the drapes since people in the courtyard would have been able to look into my room. I suggest that you ensure a different location before booking.
