Rated 4 out of 5 by Birdfan Comp Breakfast
Only good thing about the complimentary breakfast was the price. The room A/C was very noisy. We were part of a wedding party and could not get the reduced rate even though there were rooms available. Our reservation was a little late, but still. Overall a rating of C+.

Rated 3 out of 5 by notsomuchjune Diappointed
Two rooms reserved, one for our adult son. In order to be on the same floor, we were required to use the expensive 9th floor. Check-in was actually a little confusing on the part of the clerks.
We checked in at 2 pm. However, when our son arrived a few hours later, he had a very difficult time getting checked into the prepaid room, though we had explained he would be arriving.
Also, we had to sign some sort of declaration of good behavior while there (college town rules?) - never seen before in years of travel.
I thought the included breakfast on the 9th floor was too crowded with limited food. Staffer very nice.
Then have a look at the room's built-in furniture! The desk stuck out allowing about 18 inches passage to the chair and the other side of the bed- difficult to manage in the night.
Lots of racket during the night from a bar on the street. Finally found my earplugs.
All in all, these 2 rooms were overly expensive and somewhat dated.
Shower-tub very slippery, needs immediate attention. We meet a woman guest who had hit her head - hard - in the shower - I could see why.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LoriG19 Loud AC/Dirty Underware
This was my second stay at this hotel. We were in Iowa City to attend my son's college graduation.
We checked in and upon entering our room, found a pair of dirty women's underware on the floor by the bed. We were in a hurry & I knew the hotel was booked, so we moved them out of the way & left for graduation.
We didn't return until late that evening.
The beds were comfortable, but the AC was extremely loud & woke us up throughout the night.
I mentioned the underware during checkout the following day. We received complimentary breakfast coupons at their restaurant.
Because of graduation weekend at the University of Iowa, we paid over $300 for this room.
This hotel has a great location, but I expect a much nicer room for $300.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryUIHC2014 This hotel has a wonderful staff.
I've experienced the Sheraton at Iowa City for over a year. From the front desk, to the bell staff, to the concierge lounge - I've received wonderful service. Heather, Nancy, and April always greet me with a smile at the front desk. Dave and Heather at the Concierge lounge are always there in the mornings and evenings to start my day off or let me unwind after a long work day. And, the bell staff, Dan, Zak, Milosh, Chitoka, Hannah, and Katie are so helpful and willing to take me and pick me up at the hospital, really taking an interest in visiting with me. I've felt like this hotel is my 2nd home in Iowa City. I can't say enough about the great staff that works there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed1 Platinum vs. Gold
This hotel has trouble keeping good records and inflates hotel prices when customers have no other Starwood options in the area. We were downgraded from platinum to gold upon late arrival with no effort by the clerk to investigate the change in status. It eventually (at least we hope so) got corrected. Seems very bad that platinum membership is supposed to be an important status but the system does not properly match names with accounts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deb57 Hotel was great but parking was a little confusing
The hotel staff and hotel facilities were awesome; one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at. The staff were right on the ball when our business meetings were over, cleaning up and rearranging rooms. However, it would have been even better if the staff had asked me if I needed to validate my parking when I checked out because my parking bill was huge. Either ask us at checkout or have it stated on the parking sign because we more inexperienced travelers need a little more help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Becca26 Want to take the bed home!
We recently stayed here during the Iowa v. Iowa State homestand in Iowa City. I was assuming I would have to deal with noise from all of the fans who had come to town, but I was pleasantly surprised at how nice and quiet it was. The hotel was in a great location. The room was great! Comfy king bed. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to a friend.
We also ate at the hotel restaurant and enjoyed the breakfast buffet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brian21 Excellent service and friendly employees
We stayed at the hotel over New Years Eve with a large party of friends and family and had a terrific time. There was lots of entertainment available at the hotel including the pool area and also on the Ped Mall in Iowa City.
We are definitely looking forward to doing it again with our friends, family, and of course the Sheraton in Iowa City.
Thank you for a wonderful evening and a great end to 2011 and a perfect start to 2012.

I've stayed here a few times recently and have enjoyed each stay. As a gold member, access to 9th floor rooms and the club room + free internet are a nice touch. Rooms are always very clean and staff is wonderful. Location is fantastic, everything within walking distance. $11.00/day parking is reasonable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mfgillon bed and noise
my wife and I are Iowa grads and have stayed at this hotel many times, under different management, the bed we had was poor at best, the neighbors loud, at 230 in the morning..and overall a potential quiet and relaxing weekend became a drawn out, poor experience that has created a poor week of 12/10/12..

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sharon86 Should do better
I have stayed here several times a year since the Hotel opened this weekend was my worst stay. Had to change in bathroom
after room not ready by 4pm. Never got call ,as promised room was ready. The front desk was vey bad. Lot of misinformation. And one could not get the keys right. The Bell Stand was a bright spot. I been here at many busy times- never seen this run this bad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by shester34 not a good sleep
The noise level was unbearable the first night so I had to request a room change at 1:30am. The 2nd room I was in had an unfunctional air conditioner so the heat made sleeping in the room uncomfortable. Not a good experience at the hotel when it came to accomodations.

Sheraton Iowa City was excellent facility with one exception - there was no fan in the bathroom in our room and when showering the room and mirror steamed up. Other than that, all aspects of our stay receive high marks. I would recommend this Sheraton to friends.

It's 2013 and hotels like this don't offer complimentary wifi? I guess you have to go to the local McDonald's for amenities like that!
