Awesome, new hotel with rustic, industrial chic decor. Reasonably priced with convenient interstate access. Spacious lobby, with several seating areas. Complimentary beverage center with morning coffee/tea and afternoon/evening cold water with floating citrus-slices. Nice-sized rooms (double queen), with clean linens, quiet A/C, mini-fridge, robe, slippers, hair dryer and spa toiletries. (But, no in-room safe.) Modern clean bath. Indoor Hotel Amenities:... More

My 2 friends and I stayed for a night and we were so happy with Steven at the front desk and Stephen the bartender. We also used the free shuttle and our driver was very good and timely. We enjoyed the hotel so much we just hung out there instead of going out anywhere else for cocktails.

What a wonderful place, that I wish was near me, so guests could experience what we did too. Very refreshing place to stay. You won't be disappointed! The funny thing too is it was cheaper than the run of the mill hotel next door (that was not 4 star).

Great modern clean hotel. Nice beds and rooms, mostly with direct access to the swimming pool (great for the kids). Next to the restaurant The Machine Shed, which has some of the most delicious food you can have. And if you are with a family, hop on a tractor to go to the Living History Farms

My husband and I planned a trip to Des Moines for shopping. I chose Hotel Renovo based on reviews and it's trendy and not so typical hotel appearance. The Hotel was clean, tastefully decorated, and staff were very friendly. Location is great, easy access to interstate and shopping! Will be staying there in future for sure!!

This is one of the best motels in Des Moines. Wonderful service, friendly staff and a warm welcome. I will definitely stay here again. The breakfast service was excellent. Clean rooms and personalized service. They even provided robes and slippers!😊 The pool area was very nice with a nice exercise area.

You never know how thin the walls are until the middle of the night. Such was the case with our stay. All night long we listened to the snoring of our neighbor as we tried to sleep. It was a nice enough property but not knowing if I can get good sleep.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This major construction project will include expanding the size of the existing structure to create a 102 room urban farm inspired hotel that will include a full service restaurant that Heart of America's culinary team is currently developing. The hotel and its rooms will be designed with a minimalist approach, to give guests a clean and relaxing atmosphere perfect for unwinding after a long day. Hotel rooms will be furnished with lavish bedding and spa like amenities, featuring the Beekman Brother's signature line of goat's milk soap. The restaurant will serve its food in a large-scale breakfast space and an open concept bar in the lobby. The bar will include a soft seating area for guests to enjoy a variety of libations along with chef inspired cuisine. Relaxation does not end inside property, an expansive porch will feature comfortable seating outdoors for hotel guests to enjoy. Known for providing an alternative to cookie cutter hotels, Heart of America Group designers will create a space that is unique to the Hotel Renovo, yet welcoming to guests from all around the world. For business and event needs, the hotel offers two meeting rooms configured with state of the art A/V equipment and can be configured to accommodate as many as 115 people. Catering for meetings and events will be available through the hotel's restaurant. ... more   less
