This is my second time at this hotel as it's close to my employer's U.S. office. For the price, you can't beat it. Check in was fast, staff was courteous. Close to a couple of restaurants (Texas Roadhouse right in parking lot) and a Mexican place and Starbucks across the street. The rooms are well equipped with a kitchenette, desk... More

TownePlace Suites off I-80 in north Des Moines was a great find! Very spacious rooms. Comfortable beds. Generous supply and sizing on towels. Even my "studio" with 2 queens had a kitchen area. Probably not adequate for gourmet meal, but certainly sufficient to prepare food "on the road". Several restaurants very near-by. When travelling through this area, we would definitely... More

I stayed here while visiting friends. It's in a great location and it's right off the highway. That being said, the street noise is non-existent. The continental breakfast is amazing and the little dining area is a great place to sit down, plan your day, watch the news, and eat your breakfast. The pool is fun, as is the hot... More

This was our first time staying at this hotel. The staff is excellent and London went above and beyond superior customer service when making our reservation. I cannot thank her enough!! The rooms are clean and quiet. The hotel is located in a developing suburb of Des Moines. We were there for the track and field Junior Olympics and Although,... More

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.
