From social celebrations that make everyone feel like part of the in-crowd to corporate meetings of the minds that would impress the honor roll crowd, Hotel Grinnell gets an A for effort, execution and creativity. Located halfway between Des Moines and Iowa City, we're an easy-to-reach yet outside-the-box destination that gets the group dynamic.
"Hotel Grinnell left a lasting impression as one of the most unique boutique hotels our group has ever experienced. The Hotel Grinnell staff were extremely accommodating - from the check-in process, to meals, to event set-up, they were quick to adapt to our requests and offered solutions when we needed to bring guest speakers in virtually. The outdoor patio and space in the Periodic Table is just perfect for a corporate or casual event alike. The extra touches which complimented the theme of a “junior high” such as games, bicycles and chalkboards are what made our stay so much fun!"-Sara C., Key Cooperative 8/2/2020
Our event planners and caterers serve as your personal chaperone from start to finish, ensuring that everything adds up, from the earliest planning stages until the last guest has departed. Our spaces are “too cool for school”, whether you’re throwing a bash in our gymnasium-style ballroom, staging a live performance in the historic Auditorium or brainstorming in one of our smaller venues.
When it comes to geography, Hotel Grinnell is at the top of the class. Nestled in the heart of downtown Grinnell, we put your group in the center of everything. It’s just a short stroll to numerous independent restaurants, unique shopping, Central Park, the Strand Theatre and Grinnell College.
