Sandy was easy to work with, prompt w/each of my requests, had everything set up exactly as we discussed & a joy to work with. The facilities are impeccable and the best boutique hotel DSM has to offer.

this hotel is one of the best I have ever been to. It was cold outside but as soon as you entered you felt warm all over. Big fire place, open bar, the decor was gorgeous. Then we went to our room. It was lovely, brick wall behind the bed, leather chair close by. And above all super clean.

My husband and I came to Des Monies from California for a wedding and stayed at the Des Luxe Hotel. It is a gorgeous hotel that is very centrally-located to everything in downtown Des Moines. Our hotel room was very clean with a super comfortable bed. We would definitely stay again!

The Des Lux Hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Des Moines. Centrally located, large rooms and a great lobby. Theresa and Trent are wonderful at the front desk. No request is too much. The morning breakfast is not to be missed, the chef will cook you an omelette just the way you want it.

We've stayed there several times over the weekend. Rooms are clean and decorated well. A few minor maintenance issues sometimes but nothing terrible. Friendly staff, lovely great room with a fireplace to sit and relax by. The music in the bar area on Saturday nights are a bonus to come back to after going out for dinner and the breakfast... More

The hotel is a restoration project well done. I stayed on a Sunday night so the hotel was not very lively however, the receptionist was attentive and nice. There were no issues with our room, very comfortable and spacious. Would stay here again.

Would highly recommend this beautiful hotel! The furnishings in the lobby and rooms were classy and unique. Our back corner 5th floor room was very large and quiet with a beautiful original brick wall on one side of the room and elegant furnishings. The staff was so congenial. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding with a chef preparing custom omelets, in... More

I stayed here for one night to visit with some friends and see a performance at the Temple Theater. It was specifically because of the location that I chose the Des Lux - just a block away from the theater. There is free parking on weekends in a city ramp across the street. Entering the lobby takes you back in... More

I took my wife here for a quick weekend away and this hotel was great. I purchased the romance package with the massage, and it was worth the extra cost. The suite was one room, but it was big with high ceilings. The fireplace and jacuzzi tub were worth the extra money. The tub was plenty big. Actually, the bathroom... More

I stayed for Two nights and the staff, especially Mr. Phouty and Emily, were very helpful and generous with their time. The hotel was beautiful and very well maintain. Will definitely stay there again
