This is a beautiful hotel. The room I stayed in was a king suite and the room was huge. Although it was warm outside and I didn't use it, the gas fireplace was a nice touch. The bed was comfortable, the room was impeccably clean, the water pressure was in the shower was fantastic. It was a very enjoyable stay.... More

The positives were a clean room, excellent bed, and the check-in staff was excellent. However, early weekend staff, Sunday were rude, interested in there own thing, and not the hotel guest. Fire Alarm went off in early Sunday morning. Desk staff didn't handle phone calls well. The next staff person, a young lady, was not to receptive to the guest... More

Nice newer property with many amenities and outstanding breakfast included with room. Our 4th floor room was clean, spacious, comfortable beds and quiet. The elevator is slow and occasionally some guests leave litter outside their room -- the only negatives we experienced. The location in WDSM is convenient to nearby West Des Moines and Jordan Creek mall about 5 miles... More

Waffles,eggs, toast, muffins, breakfast sausage, and fresh fruit and yogurt. Coffee, tea, hot choc, milk and juice. It was included in the price of the room.

Rude staff, do not expect any help finding elevator from Jessica ! Bad pillows and hard mattress ! We will not be back to this hotel, we have had good luck with staybridge suites, but be forewarned on this one ! Breakfast is horrible and cold, staff unfriendly and concerned about gossiping with each other than helping guests !

Spent one night here passing through town, I thought this hotel was OK but I expected better for the price. My room was one of their studio's, not studio suite, so it did not have a full kitchen only a kitchenette with microwave and fridge. I have stayed in many Staybridges and honestly I had no idea that all of... More
