Hotel Sink

Hospitality is a big draw for the Iowa City and Coralville area. Our visitors and patients have several hotel and motel options in the area. Most accommodations can promise that you are minutes from University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics and UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital, with the range of drive-times running from 2 to 12 minutes.

As you make your selection from the list of available hotels and motels you may want to inquire about special hospital-rate discounts and shuttle. Also note that on certain weekends--Hawkeye home football games in the fall, University graduation in mid-May, and weddings in June--hotels and motels near the hospital tend to fill up well in advance.

The UI Hospitals & Clinics Concierge Services can help you book a room. Please call Concierge Services at 1-1-319-356-1900 or 1-319-688-5500 or email

A Concierge is available 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Downloadable Hotel and Motel Guide

Provided by our Concierge, an information sheet with hotel and motel listings, including prices and addresses, is available for you to download.

It is named in honor of the volunteers at UI Hospitals & Clinics and for Helen K. Rossi, who founded the Volunteer Services program in 1973.
