Verified Reviews of Hilton Garden Inn Iowa City Downtown University Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Close to venue, rooftop bar rocks."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The room and the roof top bar were great. I was a bit annoyed at the parking fee, but alas it was in a city with minimal parking spots. If they cut the parking fee down to $10 a night and added $4 on to the room fee I would like that more. I HATE paying for parking.
