    There are several comments about the rooms needing to be updated. The Hilton website says that the guest rooms are newly renovated. Have all of the rooms been recently renovated?

    Response from Five-Iowa-Travelers | Reviewed this property |
    The renovation in some of the rooms was so minimal it needs to be done again.
    Is there a Catholic Church near the hotel?

    Yes, there are a few. St. Amrose is just a few blocks away and we have a complimentary courtesy shuttle that will provide transportation both ways for you.
