We had a great stay this past weekend. To begin, this hotel is very CLEAN!!!!!!! The beds were firm but very comfortable with the bedding provided. The whirlpool closes at 10pm, but was very inviting and useful. This hotel has the largest work out facility I have ever seen in a hotel. (6000 sq ft. of equipment) We were informed... More

The Suites of 800 Locust is a very nice and clean place to stay. It's a little old but that adds to the charm. The customer service at check-in and check-out was very good. Also, the have a great work out room (much better than any other hotel I have stayed at). It's also located right next to everything I... More

Lovely hotel. Room was clean and had everything you required. Internet access bit hit and miss. Bar lovely very friendly, had a cocktail named after me by the lovely Sherry. Hence the title of my review. Very enjoyable stay. Excellent bed.

My boyfriend and I were in Des Moines for a wedding and stayed in this hotel. I liked the location, a few blocks from some really nice restaurants and bars. The room was nice and clean, but there was a few flaws with this hotel. First of all, their website stated that there was "valet". I never saw anyone to... More

I'm sorry a previous reviewer had a bad time - my experience this past weekend (6/27) was very nice. Clean rooms, pleasant staff - GREAT BEDS! They did seem a little shorthanded, as I saw some front desk staff having to bring things to rooms ... but, they were extremely pleasant and helpful. Loved the room setup, beds were phenomenal...

I recently spent the week end here with my girlfriend while visiting my Mom. This is the most understaffed poorly managed hotel I have ever been too. The front desk clerk is also the valet, towel boy, bell hop etc, etc. I feel sorry for the staff. I valeted my car and went to my room and the key did... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The hotel has heart; it's comfortable; and the property is well maintained. My room (504, on a corner) was in unassailable condition and immense, with a double height ceiling and huge windows, a large bathroom with separate shower and enormous jacuzzi tub, and double sinks. The bed was great, and some distance from it... More

This is a very nice downtown hotel with good size , well appointed rooms. The staff was unbelievably helpful. In typical Midwestern fashion, they go out of their way to make you feel at home. It's quite a refreshing change from most hotels. The staff alone makes this a wonderful property.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on business. The hotel is right downtown which can be a good and a bad thing. It is an older hotel, but the lobby is gorgeous and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The suite we had was a king that looked into the atrium. The bed was very cozy... More

I rented 11 rooms at this hotel the last weekend in August. The rooms were all clean, comfortable with no complaints from any of the guests. The breakfast in the a.m. was free and good; a nice touch when you have that many people staying. The service was fine and friendly. I understand that it is under new management now.... More
