The Hotel Iowa is a historic building in downtown Keokuk, Iowa, United States. It was built from 1912–13 and it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1] The structure, which was designed by architect Guy C. Mariner [2] in the Chicago Commercial style, was built to house the workers who built Lock and Dam No. 19 on the Mississippi River.[3] The eight-story structure became a commercial building known as the Pierce Building.
