Careers at the Merrill

"The Merrill Hotel is a beautiful new hotel located right in the heart of downtown Muscatine overlooking the Mississippi River. The hotel is surrounded by a variety of local shops and restaurants in walking distance. There is a beautiful view from just about all the rooms. The staff is very friendly, and the food is amazing. We loved our stay at The Merrill and recommend the hotel to anyone coming into town or just looking for a little get away place to stay!" Recent Guest

Revitalizing Downtown

Watch Downtown Muscatine thrive as we invite business leaders, conference planners, and leisure travelers to The Merrill Hotel & Conference Center. Strategically placing our hotel in the heart of the city, along our picturesque river, fuels the economic engine for our community and the State. In fact, the construction project alone translates into 100 jobs and a $38 million impact on the local economy. This along with an estimated 550 jobs and an $81 million impression on Iowa means The Merrill Hotel has placed itself, our city, and our State very well.
