I stayed in this new hotel in May of 2006. It is located in a great area in downtown Iowa City right off the pedestrian mall. It is connected to the parking ramp by a covered walkway. The room is quite large with a very large bathroom with shower separate from large tub. The amenities in the bathroom are wonderful with special body wash and facial cleanser. There is a flat screen television. On the three mornings of our stay there was a small continental breakfast in the lobby but I was told this is not promised as a daily routine. There is also complimentary health club access which was very nice.

The only downside to the room was the loud air conditioner fan which made it necessary to turn the television volume quite high. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay.

Reviewed 25 April 2006

Elegant, contemporary hotel occupying several floors of a luxury apartment building. Polished concrete floors, high thread count bedding, kitchenettes, and VERY stylish decor. When we stayed they were very new and still getting things together (our room service menu was a photocopy), but I appreciated the courteous, helpful staff. We stayed for $149 (AAA rate, two queen size beds, studio suite). Only complaint: the air conditioning fan is quite loud. Hopefully they'll figure out how to muffle it.
