I'm stranded all night, stranded all right | Stranded in Iowa | Stranded in Iowa 

“Stranded” by Manfred Mann 


With all due respect to Manfred Mann, The Highlander Hotel will have you looking for reasons to stay just a little bit longer in Iowa City. Make your overnight outta’ sight in uncommon accommodations designed for the independent spirit. Think Woodstock with velvet chairs, imported percale sheets, and plenty of little creature comforts like Wi-Fi on the house, flat-screen TVs, and bed linens smoother than Joni Mitchell’s voice. 

Want to add a little groove to your stay? Grab your favorite album from our vinyl library and pick up a free turntable in the Retro Lounge. Head back to your room for your very own jam session.

Looking for a laid back, hippie adult vibe? You'll find that Sunday through Thursday at The Highlander Hotel. Now if you want a family-friendly, rockstar party atmosphere with kids splashing in the pool, we'll see you on the weekends! 

We love kids....and pets! Yes, we're pet friendly, so be sure to bring Fido! Pets are welcome in designated rooms with a $30 fee per pet, per stay. 

At The Highlander Hotel, we’ll treat you, and your pet, like a rock star.
