Hotel Recommendation


We have arranged for room blocks at three hotels to accommodate visitors for the reunion and Steak Fry. As we get closer to the event, we expect rooms to be at a premium or scarce, so snap one up.  The price is hard to beat!


1. The Hotel Fort Des Moines will provide a special room rate of only $89 for those attending the reunion. We have reserved the adjacent upper level of the Raccoon River Brewery Company, 200 10th Street (Corner of 10th & Mulberry) in downtown Des Moines where former staff, their spouses and significant others will gather starting at 8:30 p.m., after the staff reunion at the Cubs stadium.  Call  800-532-1466 for reservations and ask for the Tom Harkin Steak Fry  Room rate 



2.  The brand new Hampton Inn on Water St., near the Iowa Cubs Stadium, has offered us a special room rate of  $129 and will hold a block of rooms for the Harkin Staff Reunion until Sept. 1.

Call and ask for the Harkin Reunion room block: Kelli Vorrath, Director of Sales-Hawkeye Hotels, 319-850-6112



3. If you prefer to stay closer to the airport and away from downtown, a limited number of rooms have been set aside for attendees of the Harkin Staff Reunion at the Double Tree by Hilton on Fleur Drive for a reduced rate.
