We recently stayed at this hotel to be close to a concert location. When we attempted to book our reservation, the nationwide system was down. We called directly to the hotel and they could not book us either due to the same problem. The staff advised us to call the next day and assured a good rate. We called the... More

I stayed here with my husband and two little kids a few weeks ago. We had a handicapped room, which was HUGE--that was great, because it allowed plenty of room for the kids to play. It was very nicely decorated, Minuses: the pool was pretty chilly, and there weren't enough towels (and not because it was busy). I had to... More

Cosy, friendly, efficient, clean property. Perfect location and friendly staff. Not deluxe (obviously) so adjust your expectations before you arrive but nice rooms and good bathrooms with huge walk-in shower. Walking distance to many good eating spots. For this kind of straightforward business hotel it is excellent.

I stayed here with my wife for a little getaway without the kids. It was a newer option in the area and we were glad we chose it. It is located in a historic building that has been renovated. The room was very nice, had a couch along with the king bed. It had a 42" HDTV that actually had... More

Great place to stay. The skywalk was convenient and the entire staff was friendly and courteous. The room was spacious and clean with a good view. The breakfast had a large variety and was very good. We will stay here again!

My daughter and I were traveling to Des Moines to see a production at the Civic Center, with a drive of about 4.5 hours each way. We didn't want to travel in our dress clothes and had requested an early check-in. It was an extremely busy weekend in and the hotel was completely booked, so they were unable to guarantee... More

Perfect hotel. Until you make a reservation a year in advance for a huge event and you check on it 6 months prior to the event and its not there. I stay at this hotel all the time and have never had a problem with it until yesterday. If anyone is staying at this hotel for the NCAA wrestling tournament... More

We stayed in a great large corner room that was very updated and clean with a good selection of amenities - large updated bathroom, free wifi, breakfast (the skillet feature was just so-so). The service was excellent, even to the point of suggesting parking on the street for free rather than valet park ($15). The pool was too chilly for... More
