tasteful room with high ceilings, large sofa, separate dressing area. breakfast was tasty, and very fast free wi-fi. very good value. pleasant staff, and speedy valet parking. stayed here while visiting Drake University. Even though the hotel was a few miles away, the University was very easy to get to from the Hyatt Place.

This is a great hotel for travelers to downtown Des Moines. Staff is excellent and the shuttle service is a nice plus. The location is good for walking to the riverfront area as well. Overall a nice choice.

I was very very pleased with this hotel. The staff could not have been any nicer. They were eager to help whenever anything was needed. My room was beautiful, had a very large sofa, king bed and high ceilings. Complimentary breakfast was very good. Great location. Highly recommend.

My wife and I stayed here for a friend's wedding that was held just a few blocks away at the Temple for Performing Arts.

I am a big fan of the Hyatt brand and a diamond member, but never before stayed at the Hyatt place, so I Didn't know what to expect. After two stays have to conclude that the place is one huge disappointment. The rooms were large but rather barren and each smelled like mildew. the staff was very nice but not... More

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful without being over bearing. Our king suite was large, clean and very comfortable. The lobby and business center are small but cozy and inviting. We enjoyed coffee by the gas fireplace. The location downtown is fantastic. Walking distance to most places. The only negative to our stay was the complimentary breakfast which fell... More

We just stayed one night for the Des Moines marathon. We got the race rate, so it was a good value. The room was smaller than what we've come to expect from Hyatt Place, but perhaps it was because it was downtown. The location was fantastic and Des Moine's downtown was really nice. I can not say enough about how... More

This is in downtown Des Moines and there is valet parking for $15/day. Normally a Hyatt Place does not charge for parking but you are right downtown and alternatives are nearly just as expensive and much less convenient. We found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming. You are treated as a very important guest and they want to... More

We have stayed at a lot of Hyatt's and most of the time we pay extra for internet, extra for parking and extra for breakfast... this place included nearly everything except parking ~ which is pretty normal for a downtown hotel. I appreciate not being nickel & dimed and the valet parking was quite reasonable... This hotel was central so... More

The website stated they had valet parking, but when we arrived the front desk told us that we could either use the valet parking ($15 a night) or we could try to find parking on the street, as you don't have to pay for meter parking on the weekend. When we said we would try to meter parking first, one... More
