My boyfriend and I attended a wedding in Downtown Des Moines and booked here because we got a rather good deal through Orbitz. I am familiar with West Des Moines and knew it to be a safe area with decent things to do near by (brewery, book store, etc). The location was nice, but the hotel is very dated. We booked one of the larger corner rooms ($6 extra) and while the room was incredibly spacious, it smelled a lot like carpet cleaner upon walking in. We really like that the room featured a decent sized refridgerator, as well as a coffee maker and microwave. The TV was a nice flatscreen, and the air conditioner worker superb. The lighting was a bit on the dim side, and being on the first floor - it felt a little like being in someone's basement. The wallpaper was peeling off the walls as well, but in all honesty it wasn't that bothersome. I would suggest bringing your own toiletries as the ones in the bathroom have a very generic soap smell. The hot tub was out of commission all weekend (due to a PH balence problem?) and when I asked on the first night if it would be fixed soon I was assured it would - but nothing came of it. The employees, while not rude, were not incredibly friendly either and weren't the best at speaking english/understanding my questions. We gazed upon the complimentary breakfast, but weren't too impressed. HOWEVER, for the rate we payed and the spacious room we got, I would not call this a bad deal - I would just be inclined to try something different next time.
