I stayed here in April while attending 3 days of meetings. Check in went well. Staff is friendly. My room was squeaky clean. Breakfast was a nice variety and a nice selection of breakfast sandwiches were offered daily. Enjoyed the yogurt with granola toppings as well. Only complaint was not being able to find desk clerk for twenty minutes one... More

Nice big rooms, high ceilings. If you stay during the weekends in the summer you are in walking distance to the Farmers Market on Court Ave, worth checking out. The staff here is very helpful and friendly. The views aren't of the greatest if you get an interior facing view you look at a roof top and large industrial air... More

Took my two oldest daughters and five of my grandchildren to the Lion King. The front desk was exceptional, and valet service was beyond belief. Room was large and nice view of the downtown. Close walk to theater and dining.

We stayed at this Hyatt Place while attending a wedding in downtown Des Moines. the location is perfect - just around the corner from the Ruan Center and the Marriott. the service at this hotel was outstanding. valet service was reasonable and efficient and the rooms were very well appointed.

excellent staff. very friendly, courteous and professional...not surprising for mid-America. very clean and well organzied hotel in a great downtown location. Ian, Soh and Britney, in particular, were top notch. walking or easy shuttle distance to Court Avenue and less than :10min to Cownie soccer fields for tournament. overall experience was noteworthy. would highly recommend this hotel if staying in...

Great hotel and great location. Hotel is clean and modern. The staff was excellent. They can answer any and all questions! Breakfast buffet was good. Valet parking is 15.00 a day. It was very convenient and worth the money.

I would highly recommend the Hyatt Hotel for overnight stays. The staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful. The atmosphere is really pleasant and the rooms were very spacious and very clean. Even the cleaning staff were very friendly. Close to other restaurants and close to the Civic Center. Love the skywalk which connects to so many other places.

I stayed here for Business for a week. The staff were very friendly, the room I stayed in was bigger than I thought. The free breakfast will need more variety for the whole week the choices didn't change for the hot food. They offer room service but you need to pick it up from the lobby and there isn't much...

I stayed here for a conference which was being held at a nearby hotel and I was really glad I did. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and that I had everything I need.
