Having stayed here about 5 years ago I thought I knew what to expect, but I didn’t realize the hotel had done a major remodel during that time. Everything appeared to be new, top to bottom. It now has a modern chic look. I have no complaints really, and had a wonderful stay. This place easily gets 5 stars for... More

My husband and I choose to stay at the Courtyard because it was close to our destination. We are expecting good things from this hotel based on the reviews. When we arrived and checked into our room (117), we noticed that we could hear every conversation taking place in the parking lot, (our room was on the first floor) almost... More

We were greeted very nicely and promptly. We just stayed for one nice. The lobby is nice and has some great places to eat and business center. The pool and workout room (which was pretty small) were tucked away in a weird place. The elevators are strangely far away from the lobby, so ask to be on the first floor... More

The staff was friendly.The hotel felt clean. The pool area/exercise room is on the smaller side but looked clean and well taken care of. The bistro had an excellent breakfast we got the french toast and eggs sausage toast and both were delicious. Fresh strawberries on top the french toast were nice. Usually hotels of this level have a free... More

We travel often to Des Moines, but never stayed here. Very clean and comfortable. We did not eat at all, but it seemed inviting. The arrangement of the room was a bit odd, usually a bed faces a television, but was positioned on the side. Not too comfortable for the other side of the bed. Ask for a room away... More

My husband had a business trip and I tagged along. The hotel was clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. The bathroom was roomy. The restaurant was only open for breakfast and dinner so I didn't try anything there. There is a marketplace in the hotel to purchase snacks and forgotten items. It was a bit pricey ($2.65 for a...

I travel extensively and it has been a while since I have stayed in a Courtyard, but I was amazed at how much better other hotels in this category are. There is just no need to pay this much money and not even have a free breakfast buffet. For an additional $10 fee I got a rate that included a... More

Thank you for sharing your comments regarding your stay here at the hotel. We appreciate the feedback from our guests.
