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

Dear Scarlettscar Thank you for choosing us your last trip to Des Moines was a pleasure to have you with us. I wish I was available when you where looking for a restaurant there are several just blocks from us not all that easy to find. 801, Centro, Raccoon River, are some of my favorites.

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

My suite was large and spacious. The living room was comfortable, yes the TV was old, but it's a TV, it did it's job. The bed, pillows, shower, jacuzzi, towels and toiletries (Aveda) were all excellent. There's a wet bar with fridge, sink and coffee machine, however no microwave. Free WIFI and breakfast were included. Parking was free in the... More

We went this summer on a last minute weekend trip from Kansas City. We loved the hotel and thought it superior to a large luxury chain, lacking the hubbub of a convention hotel. It was quiet and a short walk to Centro, one of the better restaurants in Des Moines. The room was clean and spacious and the lobby quiet... More

Overall grade: "C" - Charges boutique hotel rates but doesn't measure up; IMHO Suites at 800 has great potential, but it is lagging its competitors, namely the other high-end chain hotels in downtown DSM (which also charge less). Likes: Cosmopolitan Lounge is a great martini bar; excellent cook-to-order bfast (chef uses veggies grown in his garden); nice gas fireplace in... More

Maybe it's me, but I didn't quite dig the dark furnishing and English looking decor of the establishment. First of all the hotel didn't have a regular shuttle pickup, not like other establishments in the area. Although they did a pickup for us, they made it clear that this is not a regular service they provide. So don't expect a... More

Nearly ten years ago, this was the nicest hotel in Des Moines. It is showing a bit of its age as it hasn't been updated much and getting a little tired. Pros: nice beds and linens. Good location. Cons: Not connected via Skyway and Check-in always seems to take longer than it should. I have stayed here at least 10... More
