Yes they all have similar deco, layout and amenities, but this one is the best I've been to. Easy to get to, right off the interstate, just north of Des Moines. I was actually doing business in Ames, so roughly 30 minutes away, but easy there and back. Their bistro is similar to others. But staff were excellent and food... More

This was my first time in a Courtyard. The location, staff, and lobby are all testaments to the Marriott brand and were impeccable. The room itself was immaculate. Very pleasant layout and pieces of art. As usual, the bed, pillows, absence of outside noise, and temperature control were perfect. The only complaint that I have is that there is no... More

My husband and I had a gift card for a night stay in the King executive room with breakfast for two. We were willing to pay an additional amount for a suit with a whirlpool but they said that was not possible (Bull I work in this industry I know you can)... Before we went we looked up what a...

The hotel room was clean. The beds were extremely comfortable. I slept very well. Check in was very quick and easy. We did not check out the restaurant or food since there was not a complimentary breakfast or reception.

Hotel was right across the interstate from all kinds of places to eat and shop. It was clean and modern. The bathroom was nice. Only drawback was that the bed was quite firm. Overall i would recommend this hotel.

The actual room itself was great, quiet, comfortable, laid out nice. Other parts of the hotel, well... The hot tub felt way too hot, only spent a few minutes in the water before I had to get out. Pool decking area was a smoother tile and my wife slipped on it, be aware if barefoot or have certain style footwear.... More

Let me start by saying the hotel was very nice. The single/king-bed room I stayed in for the week (Rm# 222) was great! This was the first time I'd ever been right next to the elevators, so I had very low expectations going in. In the end, outside (hall/neighbor) room noise were a minimum. There was a nice pool area,... More

This is a beautiful hotel for this type of lodging. The lobby and dining area are exceptional with options for getting food, watching TV, using a computer, or just meeting and relaxing with friends/family. The staff is very friendly and make the check-in process quick and seamless. We had a king room that had a comfortable bed, microwave, refrigerator, sofa,... More

This Courtyard by Marriott is located in a relatively new commercial development area near Des Moines conveniently close to I-35, although exiting and driving into the development is somewhat tricky. Quick reactions get you to the hotel where a friendly staff greets you. The rooms are very clean and roomy, the bed is comfortable, and the normal Marriott Courtyard quality... More
