Stayed here for a business trip from 7/9 to 7/12. Loved it. Extremely clean property, friendly and hard-working staff, a nice happy hour in the evening and there were even two adorable dogs hanging out in the lobby the entire time (I believe the hotel is part of an adopt-a-pet program). It's also near some great places to eat and drink. Additionally, we had our meeting in one of the conference rooms, and the A/V setup worked well and the space was perfectly sized and stocked well with coffee, water and sodas. I would absolutely stay again if I need to return to Des Moines.

I have never stayed at an Element Hotel before, but, as I travel for business, I will start to look for them. This hotel was surprisingly nice. It has a very open and modern feel to it. I stayed here with a group of about 25 other business associates and everybody said how much they liked this hotel. The breakfast bar was about what you see at other hotels, but they did have a breakfast chef that would cook the “egg plate of the day”. Around 4 they had free beer and wine. The lobby area opened up into a courtyard with picnic tables and a hot tub for guests to enjoy. The rooms were up to date and had plenty of outlets for computers, phones, and what ever it is we plug in these days. Rooms were clean. Hotel is close to restaurants and it is in a fairly new area of Des Moines. (However, I am still waiting for my points to come through, don’t mess with the business guy’s points)

Clean rooms, friendly staff, well located with plenty of parking. The rooms are clean and very nice for a business traveler. Good restaurants nearby. The buffet breakfast was made special by the chef preparing omelets and other egg dishes.

My family and I couldn't have been more happy with our stay. Seemed like a nice place from the reviews but was blown away with the hospitality of the staff and the accommodations. Honestly this is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Would come back to Des Moines just to stay there.
