About Us

Our Urban Resort in Iowa City

The Highlander Hotel is an iconic, one-of-a-kind urban resort experience that celebrates the spirit of Iowa City with surprises and delights for every guest. 

“Urban” because we’re smack at the epic-center of Iowa City, right on I-80, moments from whatever brings you to town. “Resort” because we’ve created a community where you never have to leave the grounds to free your mind.  

From our far-out pool and lounge to a vinyl lending library to restaurants and bars that feed your head as well as your belly, the real fun is at The Highlander Hotel.
