Main issues would be that the front desk lady was indifferent, room window opens onto a dimly lit corridor and the desk chair sits like a low rider and doesn't raise up. Additionally the cigarette burn on the blanket and a discarded box behind the noisy... More

Was in Des Moines for a conference and this hotel worked out well. We were in an interior room and it was a bit musty when we 1st arrived, but after running the A/C it was better. The room was very clean. The beds were comfortable. We really enjoyed the complimentary hot breakfast. The free WiFi was also appreciated. The... More
