Kudos to the Hotel Kirkwood and all of the staff. My girlfriends and I were surprised with a room upgrade and then a free breakfast. Every staff member that we encountered greeted us with a genuine smile, from the front desk to the restaurant staff. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area.

Stayed here for a night and had a wonderful experience. The Staff was super friendly, check-in was quick and easy, and the room was VERY nice. We had a mini kitchen in our room too. The room was very clean and spacious. We even had a very good night's sleep. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that was looking to stay in Cedar Rapids. I think its great that we have a place this this; a place where student can do real hands on the job type of thing. Its called "hospitality" that keep you coming back.

The Hotel at Kirkwood is a gem. They teach hospitality to community college students and get a 4.0 from me! They provided pick up and drop off service from the Cedar Rapids Airport. There is a 400 M track nearby and walking trails as well.

Thank you for a wonderful wedding weekend. My guests were so impressed with everything and the food was amazing. Customer service couldn’t be better. Holly Webster’s communication leading up to the weekend was so helpful. And the hotel accommodated a last minute airport pickup. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. We will recommend this hotel in the future to all of our out of town guests and will return ourselves for special occasions and the food at the Class Act restaurant.

We loved our stay at this hotel. The rooms were tastefully decorated. The bed was so comfortable. They have a large walk-in shower. They leave a pastry on your pillow. The TV is huge. The staff members were extremely kind and helpful. They cheerfully transported us to the airport early in the morning. This is one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in. When coming back to Iowa, we will DEFINITELY stay here!

We stayed in the President's Suite on our wedding night. The room was the best I've ever been in! Top quality materials in all the rooms, everything worked, and it was super quiet. We felt like we were living like rich people during our stay there. We ordered room service; it was excellent but maybe a tad on the cool side. Overall a very memorable stay for a very special night.

Wonderful meals at on-site restaurant. Clean and luxurious rooms with amazing sheets and robes for use while visiting. Very elegant dining. Only drawback would be the distance from attractions in the area.

Coming from Atlanta ... and driving to the hotel, my expectations were quite low. But, 'out of the cornfields' was a modern, new hotel. With a transport van, a farm-to-table restaurant, and a well designed and welcoming lobby. The hospitality was impressive and the rooms did not disappoint. Large, cheerful, comfortable and plenty of storage - which is helpful when you are attending a wedding. It was a pleasant surprise and I'd recommend it to anyone needing a 5* hotel in a small town.

I have stayed here 4 years in a row for a horse show at the Equestrian Center just next door. It is a training hotel for Kirkwood Community College and they really do a wonderful job at customer service. Rooms are clean, comfortable and the front desk is always pleasant. You may run into someone being "shadowed" or in training and it really only enhances the experience. The bartenders are always wonderful and the restaurant is so great for breakfast and dinner. Highly recommend!!

Attended a wedding there and spent two nights in a large, new king bed room. All the amenities were great including the single serving coffee maker. Students at the college work there. The building is only 2-3 years old and service was great. I ordered in my breakfast and did receive a call afterwards asking me about it and if I enjoyed it. That never happened before. Also the venue was perfect for a wedding and reception. I highly recommend it for a stay or an event center.
