I stayed here during a recent two day business trip in Iowa. I usually go with one of the brand hotels that I already have rewards points with, but this hotel had such great reviews that I figured that I'd try it once, and see what happens. Lots of open (FREE!!!) parking, and check-in was nice and quick. The décor... More

Stayed here on a last minute business trip. Usually like to stay where I can accumulate points but felt a wanted something different and the ability to order dinner in after a full day of travel. This hotel is beautiful. Even though it is 5 years old, it looks brand new. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the... More

Beautiful clean modern room, nice spa like bathroom, small boutique hotel with restaurant. This hotel is connected to the Kirkwood Community College next door and has students working along side Hotel staff. Very accommodating front desk staff. Large parking lot. Easy access to highway, Cedar Rapids and Cornell College.

A very very nice stay. Staff was courteous. Hotel was new clean and classy. Bar makes the tastiest White Russian I've ever had. Note: there is no pool at the hotel. Location is on the outskirts of town and while not WAY out of the way, it's not super close to town either.

A former Iowan, I was planning to visit (and stay with) relatives, over the Christmas holiday. An unexpected impending ice and snow storm caused me to have to cut those plans a bit short - I needed to get to someplace near the Eastern Iowa Airport, for two nights, so that I'd be safe, and able to catch my flight...

My fiancé and I stayed at the Kirkwood Hotel while visiting family for Christmas. We checked in Christmas Eve to a beautiful king size room. It is hands down the best lit hotel room I've ever been in. I counted 9 lights not including the ones in the bathroom. With that much light you can't hide dirt. The room was... More

....and it was a class act. Customer service, cleanliness, design and comfort was a level of service and product all hotels should strive to achieve.

This hotel was amazing. I visited the KirkWood for a business trip. The shuttle driver picked me up from the airport in a 300 Chrysler. He opened the door for me each time it needed to be opened and insisted upon doing so. Once into the hotel, the front lobby was filled with people socializing and enjoying their meals. As... More

This is a newer hotel that is well designed and has staff that caters to your every whim. Seriously, it's nice. The beds are super comfortable and the room is very clean. I would have given it 4.5 stars because the on site workout room is just meh, but they will transport you (for free) to a nearby workout facility.... More
