On my recent first stay and visit to Burlington, Iowa I was really inmpressed with the Fairfield Inn. The location is central, along HWY 61 close to the historic Miss. river.
The staff, like Angie (Pictured), are very professional. The location is across from the casino and close to all the chain food places. For that special meal, try the Italian Rest., La Tavola, on 4th street is great. Likewise, you have Big Muddy's and The Drake for a great river view dining experience. Enjoy historic Burlington!
