The Merrill Hotel & Conference Center, set on the banks of the picturesque Mississippi River in eastern Iowa, has been named the “#1 Best Hotel in Iowa” in the prestigious “2019 Best Hotels” rankings by U.S. News & World Report. Located in the heart of historic downtown Muscatine in the scenic riverfront area, the AAA Four Diamond-rated hotel was recognized for its luxurious accommodations, outstanding customer service, beautiful views overlooking the gently rolling Mississippi River, and ideal location walking distance of the riverside town’s array of shops, restaurants and attractions. Opened in March 2018, the distinctive luxury boutique hotel is Iowa’s only hotel to hold the acclaimed AAA Four Diamond rating and IACC (International Association of Conference Centers) accreditation.
