Known as the Big Little River City, Waterloo is an urban oasis nestled in beautiful rolling fields and surrounding the rushing bends of the Cedar River. Offering over 2,000 hotel rooms, a regional airport and multiple class-act meeting facilities, Waterloo gives planners and attendees the big-city experience with the cost and comfort of a small town.
Two full-service conference hotels are the pillars of Waterloo's meeting facilities. The Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center and Ramada Hotel offers 225 sleeping rooms, over 19,000 s.f. of exhibition space, 12 break-out rooms and garaged parking. Located in the heart of the newly renovated downtown, the Ramada-Convention Center is adjacent to the Riverloop Expo Plaza, Art Mall, Amphitheater and over 106 miles of paved riverfront trails. The downtown business area is bustling with new shops, restaurants and nightlife on every block and steps away from the Waterloo Museum District featuring sports, art, history and science-based attractions.
The Isle Casino Hotel opened in 2007 with over 5,000 s.f. of meeting space, state of the art gaming, three restaurants and a lounge. All of this in addition to reception space, a poolside bar and multiple large suites for hospitality areas. Conveniently located at the juncture of highways 218 and 20, the Isle is next to the largest outdoor waterpark in Iowa and minutes from national restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
Waterloo is also home to multiple hotels with smaller meeting options, reception halls and conference centers that offer various atmospheres to meet every need, palette and budget. With access to all, the Waterloo CVB can fit the right facility, features and price to your RFP.
