Sleeping Room Reservations

A limited number of rooms are available at a discounted group rate of $108 plus tax per night until April 12 or until the group block is filled. Although the hotel will make every effort to meet your reservation needs, accommodations at the discounted room rate cannot be guaranteed after the April 12 cutoff or if the group block is filled, whichever comes first.

When making a reservation, you must mention you are with the Iowa Veterans Entrepreneurship Conference to get the discounted rate. All rooms must be guaranteed for arrival with a valid credit card. All deposits for individual room reservations are fully refundable if the reservation is canceled before 6 pm the night prior to arrival. Please Note: The hotel will charge the credit card on file one night of room rate and tax if the guest fails to change or cancel hotel reservation before 6 pm the night prior to arrival and/or does not honor the reserved arrival date (does not check in to the hotel/no shows).

You can use this link to make reservations, or call the Gateway Hotel directly at 800-FOR-AMES to make, change or cancel room reservations.
