Ready to Book your room for AnimeIowa 2015?

Ready to book your room for AnimeIowa 2015? We’ve got the information for you! A few things have changed this year and the hotel team is ready and waiting for your questions. A Single King room books for $127 plus tax per night, and a Double Queen at $134 plus tax per night. Please remember that room types are NOT guaranteed, and you will be placed by availability.


If there are any questions, please take a look at the 2014 FAQ and hotel reservation instructions pages. Please remember that the forums are currently out of working order and some information is outdated.  So, even though there is lots of useful information, it has not been updated for 2015!  For example, December 1st is the opening date for the room block!


We repeat, the hotel team is standing by for questions.


We look forward to an excellent year!
