What makes an independent hotel truly independent is its ability to set itself apart without the need for words. Whether it’s amenities the hotel offers, an attraction in proximity or a rich history, hotels that are authentically their own have a way about them that other hotels cannot emulate. Sweeping views of the Mississippi River are just one thing that sets The Merrill Hotel, Muscatine, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel—rated the No. 1 hotel in Iowa—apart from your average venue.

Keep it Green

That sense of gratification that follows decompressing after a hard-won, productive day is a language that transcends all differences. However you relax, be it with yoga, a book, winding down in front of the hotel television or relaxing in green spaces—which The Merrill Hotel offers, along with outdoor fire and water pits—guests have many choices for chilling at the end of the day.

Meetings Certified

Knowing your event space is trusted by other planners—and the event industry as a whole—can be a comforting thought. The Merrill Hotel’s more than 12,700 sq. ft. of picturesque meeting space is IACC-certified—only one of two that can claim the title in Iowa—a sign that the property is a leader in everything from sustainability to service and innovation, so planners can rest assured that the property’s meeting spaces will have Four Diamond service and be ready for business.

Day meeting and complete meeting packages, which includes 100-inch LED television screens and a list of recreational amenities, makes The Merrill Hotel a property that not only offers beautiful backgrounds for meetings, but ensures planners have what they need to get the job done.

There’s a certain level of comfort in meeting in an intimate space with familiar faces, and when your attendees meet in cozy properties, it’ll feel like a home away from home. Your attendees will be happy they came, and you’ll be glad you chose this award-winning property by the Mississippi.
