Hyatt Place Des Moines Downtown
Ranked #4 of 48 Hotels in Des Moines
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for a week and I believe it offers excellent value. The hotel is overall very clean (from the rooms to the small workout room and pool in the basement). The rooms are spacious and the hotel is overall modern. The continental breakfast is quite good, and the internet connection is one of the fastest I've found in a hotel. The staff is friendly and on the informal side, but otherwise responsive and prompt. Great location, great price, overall excellent value!

My husband and I have stayed at Hyatt Place on two different occasions while in Des Moines for family gatherings and really enjoy this hotel. It's clean, cosy, and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. It's on the skywalk system so you can walk inside to many restaurants, bars, and shops, including the popular Court Avenue area.

We stayed her while on a college visit to Drake. The hotel has a nice, contemporary feel. The room was spacious and very clean. The only negative is having to pay $15 to valet park, but the valet was extremely welcoming and helpful. The free breakfast had a great deal of choices and the sandwich I tried was delicious! It only took about 8 minutes to get to Drake's campus from downtown. We were very happy with our choice!

The hotel rooms are luxurious and spacious. Beds were very comfortable and it was quiet. There was a nice free shuttling service. The front desk was amateur at best and not very professional. The free continental breakfast could have been much better. Overall, it was a good experience.

Warm, friendly, and helpful. Rooms are huge! Stayed here two weeks earlier. Both experiences were great. Colors are comforting, noise doesn't carry into the room from the hall. Valet parking works great.

Probably the best hotel in Des Moines. Great service, breakfast, facilities. The only reason why I give only 4 stars is a cleaning lady not willing to clean the room. Convenient valley parking with unlimited in-out privileges. For those who has late flights 24-hour reception is great. The hotel has a shuttle service that would drive you wherever you want.

This is a good choice for business travelers who need to be downtown as I did on this trip. The lobby and the décor and fixtures of the room are newer, but you can tell that the structure itself is older. The configuration of my room was somewhat odd. The room was very large and had a high ceiling, but you had the feeling of it being a former office. This is compounded by the relatively poor noise filtering. Although not terrible, I was surprised by how much of the hall/adjacent room noise I could hear. The rooms were clean, the bed very comfortable and the staff friendly. Still, this would not be my first choice for family or leisure travel.

A bonus for late-nighters (my flight was delayed) is the extensive 24 hour menu.
