We stayed here for four nights while playing in State Pool Tournament over at Hy Vee Center. This is the closest and in walking distance to the Hy Vee Center and Wells Fargo Arena. The other Downtown hotels were far enough that most folks used the shuttle busses to go back and fourth. This hotel packs a lot of value as they have free parking, free Wi-Fi and a nice Breakfast buffet plus have a coffee service in the lobby.But no rewards points or credits given for Choice Hotels because of the "block rate". So we may just switch next year to a loyalty program that still awards points like Starwood or Hilton.
They have a pool and no hot tub so again, may shop around next year for a hot tub hotel that awards loyalty points. Staff was very nice, room clean, comfy and quiet. A pretty nice restaurant is in the hotel and open from 4 pm to about 10 pm. Sandwich and app menu.
