I have stayed at several hyatt place hotels. Writing this review from one now as a matter of fact. The downtown des moines location is the best I have stayed in really differentiated by staff and attention to detail. First the staff in des moines is friendly and welcoming. Probably the comment about friendly is most important - all staff,... More

The only reason it's not a five star is the parking - there isn't any. BUT, use the valet option for $17 and you can walk and/or take their shuttle to nearby restaurants. The shuttle is really a great deal as its free and generally picks you up within 5-10 minutes. Even took us from one place we had drinks... More

Just celebrated a bachelorette party in Des Moines and stayed here. We rented 2 king rooms and 1 suite. Our suite wasn't ready right at check in which was inconvenient because we wanted to decorate and set up. But we didn't have to wait very long to get our suite and everything worked out. We had a great experience.

Our family stayed here while in town for a family reunion. I must say that being new to this trip advisor thing, this was a very nice Hyatt Place. We try to stay at Hyatt Place whenever we can. The staff here is knowledgeable of the area and friendly as well. Our rooms was nicely kept the four days we... More

We stayed in one of the king suites and it was very spacious. The rooms were quiet and clean, the breakfast was great, and the staff was more than helpful. The only issue is the parking--there is none; however, if you don't mind walking through the skywalk, there is a free parking garage a few blocks away.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I am so pleased to see you enjoyed the King Suite at our hotel. Regarding parking, our hotel does offer a $15/ vehicle/ night valet service but there are other options very close as well, including with skywalk access. Thank you again for the great feedback!

We stayed in this place over the holiday weekend. There were only a few guests counting ourselves so it was a pretty relaxed time. Lobby was nice and staff were friendly.

Amazing service. Love wonderful customer service. The property and the rooms were great as well. Modern and clean. My room was huge. The property has a fire place in the lobby which is great during the cold months. They also have two computers and printers for use. I used them and they were a lifesaver.

I have traveled to Des Moines on business four times over the last three months. The first time I stayed at another local hotel - experience was good. The second time, that other hotel was booked so, I thought I would stay at the Hyatt (just as convenient/close to where I needed to be.) While I unfortunately was not able... More

Stayed one Friday night and found the room clean and a very comfortable corner king suite. The staff were pleasant and very professional. We were lucky to find a parking space between the valet parking sign in front of the hotel and Grand. There are three car spaces there after 6 PM. The hotel has very small signs so be... More

I really enjoyed this facility, even for a one-night business stay. Parking is a bit of a challenge, but once I figured out valet was the way to go, it was a snap!
