Verified Reviews of Hilton Garden Inn Iowa City Downtown University

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Go for the Vue Restaurant!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Not only is it a good choice for a clean and accommodating hotel, it has the best on-site restaurant. We had a super first class meal at the Vue on the 12th floor. Greer at the bar prepares the cocktails to a first class standard. Highly recommend the Hilton Garden Vue hotel. Look forward to our next stay.
