I was annoyed about the receipt you sent to me. I called back the number in the E-MAIL. BUT I cannot got the answer of my question and the attitude of the second women was not good. I did not know which phone number I should dial to.

Hotel's Favorite
Wife and daughter stayed for two nights to attend a horse training clinic. Room was quiet, clean and comfortable. Staff went out of their way to be helpful, from the valet service, to hotel staff; could not have asked for much better. Hotel driver Mike took outstanding care of them while shuttling them to restaurants in the area. This service was especially appreciated because it allowed both of them to enjoy an adult beverage and not worry about a designated driver. Breakfast both days was great, plenty of variety and fresh. Bottom line, outstanding hotel. We will be staying them the next time we are in Des Moines. Thank you

I would avoid this hotel. As lifetime diamond members we expect more from a Hilton property. The rooms are so dated, the furniture is chipped and dirty, the pillows have zero support and you can feel every single spring on the ultra firm bed. I don’t even want to sit on the couch. They were the highest price hotel but the only hotel with available rooms in downtown. Not sure how we’re supposed to get a good night sleep. We’re moving hotels tomorrow.

I have always loved to stay at Embassy Suites hotels! The atriums are always beautiful and who wouldn’t love the glass elevators? However, I have 2 complaints. The rooms desperately need remodeled! And the room was freezing and the heat would not turn on. I do appreciate that I can bring my dogs with me! They loved riding in the elevators!

Just stopped in for a night. Room was very clean, and front-desk staff were very helpful. The complimentary happy hour and breakfast were great. Parking garage across the street is reasonable as well. Would greatly recommend.
