I stayed here with my husband on our road trip to the State Fair. Check in was easy; Tony gave us a full overview of the 24 hour food counter and bar menu. All staff we dealt with were friendly- we used the valet on Saturday night since we wanted to avoid risk of hail damage to our car ($15/day... More

My sister and I visited in August 2015 during the Fair. We were also in Des Moines to visit relatives. I recommend this hotel but advise you request a room away from the street. It can be noisy. We also had some problems with housekeeping. They skipped our room several times.

Very pleasant experience. The hotel was immaculate and the staff was extremely friendly. Location is wonderful. They offer a free shittle bus to and from the airport. The buffet breakfast is exceptional.

Just overall a pretty underwhelming experience. Breakfast was ok but all of the silverware seemed like it hadn't been washed. Elevator seemed like it was going to fail at any second. You could definitely find a better place for the same price.

Stayed for one night. Location was right at downtown area. Check in was no hassle. Room was ok and spacious. Breakfast was crowded due to the fact that it was the 2nd day of the Iowa State Fair. Staff recomended a nice Italian restaurant nearby. Really good pizza.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The front desk staff was friendly, extremely helpful and efficient. Our room was spacious, quiet and the beds were wonderful. The location in downtown is perfect and if you need a lift to somewhere a little beyond easy walking distance, they have a van to take you and bring you back.... More

We traveled to Des Moines on Saturday to visit the State Fair. We booked a room at the Hyatt as they had a shuttle bus 2 blocks away that went right inside the state fair grounds, NOT just to the capitol where you had to get on ANOTHER bus to get into the fair grounds. This was important to us... More

We stayed for 4 nights here. The staff was extremely friendly. We never waited more than 2 or 3 minutes for our vehicle to be retrieved by valet. The rooms were extremely clean and quiet. The most impressive point of our stay was the morning we just missed the continental breakfast. Sheana had asked if we came down for breakfast... More

We arrived after 10PM after too many hours on the road from a stop in Cleveland. Thankfully, our room on the top floor was ready. Very clean. Bed was very comfortable as were the pillows. 42" TV was a nice touch, too. Bathroom was immaculate. So quiet, I didn't awaken until 10AM the next morning.

I am so pleased to see that you had a restful experience with us. Downtown is a wonderful place to be given all of the great amenities, I am glad you could still get away in one of our High Floor roomtypes. More
