My daughter is visiting Drake University. We stayed here for two night. We arrived late but the check in was very easy. The check in staff was very friendly. We got upgraded to suite and room was very large. The bed was comfortable as well. Unfortunately, the refrigerator

Besides the great breakfast (consistent with two other HI Express I stayed at earlier in the week), these rooms have a special style. Très chic and retro. Wish I could have stayed longer. Brand new and clean. Great value

One of the best HIE we've stayed at. We were in town to see a concert at the Hoyt Sherman theater which about a mile away. We were very happy about the free shuttle that took us to and from the theater. The property had all the amenities needed for our stay. The room was very

I'd say a couple of miles through downtown, but it's a straight shot on tne MLK to E 14th. And this hotel is one of the best for visiting the area. Be advised there is LOTS of construction in downtown, so use your GPS, and when you get close to the hotel, and you can see it, turn off the GPS, and keep making right turns until you see the parking lot. Des Moines is as lovely as Auroa. Be sure to visit the arboretum across from Gray's Lake while the apple trees are blooming.

"I would check in at 3pm to get a well-situated room away from elevators."
"Rooms facing east separate guests from nearby construction"
"City-side rooms have best views."
"Ask for a room with a view of the vacant lot. Not sure if there are rooms with view of skyline, but those would be good."
"liked the view from the 4th floor."
