The Homewood Suites by Hilton Opens in Coralville – Iowa River Landing, Iowa

The 95-suite Hotel is Owned by Cantilever Hotels / Lincoln
and Lisa McIlravy and Managed by Sagacity

McLean, VA – February 8, 2013 – Homewood Suites by Hilton, the international brand of upscale, all-suite, residential-style hotels, today announced the opening of its newest property in Coralville – Iowa River Landing, IA.  Creating 20 permanent jobs, the six story, 95-suite hotel is owned by Cantilever Hotels, LLC / Lincoln and Lisa McIlravy and managed by Sagacity, Inc.  General Manager Matthew Traetow has been in the hotel industry for 15 years, and is supported by Sales Manager Kimberly Morgan.

“Part of the brand new mixed-use Iowa River Landing development, the property will meet the needs of both business and leisure travelers looking for the comforts of home,” said Traetow.  “Homewood Suites’ bundled value offering is an important component that differentiates the hotel; whether that means the space to spread out in all-suite accommodations with fully-equipped kitchens, or the ability to stay productive and relax with complimentary high-speed Internet access and separate living and sleeping areas.”

Homewood Suites by Hilton Coralville – Iowa River Landing, offers studio, one- and two-bedroom suites, with additional guest amenities including a daily complimentary full hot breakfast in the hotel’s hospitality center—the “Lodge”—a full evening meal with drinks* Monday-Thursday, and a 24-hour on-site pantry.  The hotel also offers a pool, fully-equipped fitness center, 24-hour executive business center and a 740 square foot library that can also be used as meeting space.

The hotel is located at 921 E. 2nd Ave., situated in the new Iowa River Landing district, minutes away from the University of Iowa, Kinnick Stadium and Carver Hawkeye Arena.  The property is also a short drive away from the Coral Ridge Mall and University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics.

Homewood Suites by Hilton was named the 2012 “Top Extended-Stay Hotel” by J.D. Power and Associates in the North America Hotel Guest Satisfaction Index Study.  This was the third consecutive time, and ninth in the past 12 years, that the segment-leading brand received this honor.  J.D. Power and Associates uses seven key measures to determine overall satisfaction, including: reservation; check-in/check-out; guest room; food and beverage; hotel services; hotel facilities; and cost and fees.
