The service at this lovely hotel was exceptional. A bell hop was quick to notice us and offered to assist me into the hotel (I use a walker), help my husband load the luggage cart, take it to our room and unload it. He helped me through doors and made certain the elevator was there when needed. Our room was...

We spent two nights here and rented three rooms for family members to attend a wedding at a nearby winery. I don't know if it's a product of an affiliated hospitality school, but everyone who worked there was outstanding. I have stayed in many Four Seasons hotels in my career, and these people reminded me of that level of service...

Grabbed this last-second express deal on Priceline due to late baseball tournament and went for this high-rated hotel as a blind book. Not disappointed... but we're a family of four (7 & 10-year olds) so mom, dad and son had to sleep in the king and daughter on the cot that she described as "sleeping on metal rods"... plus the...

Having read the reviews before we booked on our recent trip to Iowa, Kirkwood seemed like a no-brainer. There's nothing like experiencing it first hand, however! No one is exaggerating. They truly do take "helpful" to a whole new level. The rooms are huge! We tried to fill (just for fun) all the available horizontal space with our luggage, etc.,...
