About

The perfect place to say, “I do,” The Highlander Hotel, in Iowa City, has it all—vintage vibes, a storied past, and an independent spirit all its own. This retro revival of the 1967 original Highlander Inn and Supper Club reimagines the hotel for a new generation while paying tribute to its rich history. Once frequented by luminaries such as Joan Baez, Mickey Mantle, and Arnold
Palmer, the iconic destination blends a trip down memory lane with a host of modern comforts.

At Iowa City’s hippest hangout, couples find everything they need and more to create the legendary wedding celebration they’ve always envisioned. Just 10 minutes from downtown,The Highlander is once again the place to see and be seen. With expert catering, unique venues,revitalized rooms with a retro feel, and plenty of spaces to socialize with family and friends, this Bohemian-inspired boutique hotel sets the scene for the ultimate celebration. Imagine you and your guests gathering in the inviting courtyard for cocktails and a friendly game of bags or enjoying an impromptu pool party in the area’s largest indoor heated pool.

Every great celebration involves a memorable meal, and The Highlander offers a variety of fun and fabulous dining options, from The Supper Club, with its food-truck-inspired menu, to The Highlander Lounge, serving playfully named cocktails, and more. Whether it’s a bridesmaids’ brunch, cocktails on the patio, or dinner and dancing in the ballroom, it’s easy to savor it all at
The Highlander. With a 5,832-square-foot ballroom that can accommodate up to 575 for a cocktail reception and be divided for more intimate gatherings, The Highlander offers an array of options to fit your needs, including an intimate outdoor courtyard enveloped in the soft glow of hanging lights. A host of popular add-ons, such as the Over-the-Top Retro Rock Star Bus and Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar, wow guests with a celebration they won’t soon forget. And no need to worry about all the details—the hotel’s experienced events team will do all the heavy lifting, leaving you free to focus on those who matter most. A wedding isn’t just any ordinary affair, which is why The Highlander pulls out all the stops to make it truly extraordinary.
