VERY COLD on the first floor. Really need to address the entry to the hotel. Elevators were very small and slow. Staff was very helpful at the front desk but VERY RUDE at the lounge. Had to find a bartender to take our order and had to do the same to pay our tab which was only one drink as... More

I travel a ton for work, and while in DesMoines stay here. The hotel staff is extremely accomadating and the room are fresh and clean. My favorite restaurants like hessen haus walking distance and safe area. It is also close to the highway and I can get to Ames very fast. Four Stars in a great part of town

We were doing a Fishing/Hunting Sport Show at the Event Center and stayed at the hotel for three nights. We received a spacious room with two double beds. When we opened the door we received a blast of hot air of 90 degrees. From the previous cold weather and high winds the windows had sweated and left large pools of... More

loved the hotel. rooms where clean although after being gone for the day the only thing that was done to our room was the bed made and clean towels. No cleaning was done at all. Not that we made a big mess but coffee stuff was still on the counter. I had to wipe it down same as in the... More

Our stay was very mediocre. Room was clean however was very stuffy & difficult to regulate temp. We choose this hotel as it was close to the Wells Fargo Arena however, I wouldn't stay again. We stopped by the hotel bar before & after our event and we were ignored the first time and had poor service the second time.... More

Few things grab my attention quicker than an ear-piercing hotel fire alarm. My wife and I had settled into our room on the top floor (seventh) of this hotel when the fire alarm sounded. Not knowing whether the fire alarm was "false" or not, my wife and I grabbed our immediate valuables and trudged down the seven floors of stairwell,... More

the bed was uncomfortable. The A/C rattled all night and the toilet ran as well, making more noise and wasting water-staff said they'd make a note of it when I complained. Breakfast was horrid. We stayed here for the Iowa State Fair. It was about 10 mins away so that was the only thing going for it.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel while on a business trip. It's definitely a great option for being right in the middle of downtown Des Moines, and staff are great. Internet was fast, bed comfy; what more can you ask for for a few nights? I had an issue with the lamp in my room, and after calling the... More

Had a nice room and convenient location in the city. The AAA listing said the hotel had a hot tub. Did not and that was a disappointment. Enjoyed the exercise room and it had several machines. Receptionist was very helpful and friendly. Only caffeinated tea.

We arrived at check in time the night of a Taylor Swift concert at the Wells Fargo Arena. There was a line but we didn't wait very long and the 3 ladies working were friendly, professional and efficient. Our room had a great view of the Capitol which was beautiful at night. The Arena was less than a block away... More
