About this Place
Welcome to The Hotel at Kirkwood Center. Just minutes from the Eastern Iowa Airport (CID) and Interstates 80 and 380, eastern Iowa’s newest boutique hotel offers everything a traveler desirers. Plus, a little bit more.
Stylish, Euro-chic features, an extensive, completely original art collection of hand-blown glass, student, faculty and local art – every detail, floor to ceiling, was hand-chosen to create an amazing atmosphere for guests to enjoy.
However, it’s the service that truly sets us apart. We boast a one-to-one service employee to guest ratio. Every guest experience will exceed expectation. And because The Hotel is also a teaching facility, exceptional professional staff is required to bring service to its highest level. The Hotel’s vision is to prepare the finest professionals to lead the global hospitality industry. This lofty goal cannot be compromised.
Because of The Hotel's high service standards, the American Automobile Association (AAA) recently granted The Hotel the prestigious Four Diamond Award for lodging. The Hotel is now one of only two Four Diamond rated hotels in Iowa.
