Blackhawk Experience

The Blackhawk Hotel, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, is the oldest continuously-operating hotel site in Iowa and is conveniently located in historic downtown Cedar Falls.

During the renovation of the Blackhawk we have taken great pains to retain the historic character of the original building while offering the modern conveniences of a refined hotel. Motels just don’t have the location nor offer the ambience of a true “Hotel”.

From the time you enter the lobby of the Blackhawk Hotel you instantly become comfortable with the surroundings and feel transported into a past time when the world moved slower and life was less complex. Rest assured though, we have spent over a million dollars in renovations to assure your personal satisfaction and a true “historic hotel” experience.

We are steps from the lush Cedar River Valley and all the recreational activities it offers. We are also minutes from the University of Northern Iowa Campus if you are coming to town to take in an athletic event or attend one of the many cultural events which are offered throughout the year.

The Blackhawk Hotel is a smoke-free facility offering a wide variety of accommodations ranging from standard mid-priced rooms to one, two and three-room luxury suites (pictured) furnished with authentic antiques, marble and granite baths with Jacuzzi tubs, luxury linens, tv/dvd players, wet bars with beverage centers, wireless high-speed internet and much more. Check out our base room rates and descriptions – there’s something for everyone.

We offer accessible rooms, and we accept all major credit cards and honor various discount programs.
