Our second time staying here. Good location, staff is very nice, love the 2 bedrooms suite. We have our little kitchen, is very nice. The pool and jacuzzi are small and the floor is very slippery . Other than that, works for us.

With the unexpected death of my mom, this hotel was more than accommodating after a long trip with 3 young children & a snow storm with black ice. Great rate! Clean rooms! Clean pool & hot tub! Delicious, healthy breakfast every morning. Not one complaint.

The hotel is being renovated and they are in the process of upgrading....most of which looked almost done except for the baseboards from what I saw. We choose the 4th floor and got a room next to the stairs. We never heard a thing! On the flip side, the bed was too soft and I woke up with a sore... More

We booked at the last minute after changing our route due to weather. Most of our typical choices were booked or very expensive due to a wrestling tournament in town. TownPlace Suites was reasonably priced, especially for a suite. The staff was friendly, and the room was clean and large. The suites are designed for long-term stays and include a... More

The location was great for us since it is 5 minutes from the hockey arena that my nephew was playing at. I can't speak to the value as my stay was free on points, but I can say we stayed at another hotel the following evening with the hockey team that was at the same price range per night. That... More

I frequently stay at Marriott hotels and this one did not disappoint. The room was clean, well apportioned and supplied and the bed was super comfortable. Price was right as well. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend.

Was disappointed with a recent stay at this Town Place Suites. The property (cleanliness, freshness, etc) were good but the staff attitude was less than accommodating. The shower did not work properly in my room and the cleaning staff did not bother to check that the alarm was not set on the TV from the previous guest. The TV abruptly... More

We stayed here this past weekend as we had a family dinner in Cedar Rapids and didn't want to do a 6 hour drive twice in the same day. Very friendly front desk help and met our request for first floor room even though it was handicap accessible - not a big deal for us. Very clean and spacious room.... More

After driving from Michigan to Des Moines in a straight shot and having a few stops in between, it was about 1:30pm and we'd been on the road since 6pm--I just wanted to sleep. Check-in isn't until 3pm. I decided to try anyway. They had a room on the main floor ready. I wasn't in a position to be picky,... More
