We stayed here 2 weekend nights during the Iowa State Fair. We got a great rate on a king suite with sleeper sofa and kitchenette. The bed was amazingly comfortable - and I often have great trouble sleeping in any bed but my own. Not here! I slept like a log.
We were originally going to stay just one night, but asked if we could extend our stay another night. At first I was told that the rate I had would not be valid, and we would be charged the regular rate. When I said thanks, we'll look elsewhere, the clerk went into the room behind the front desk, then came back and said they would honor our discounted rate. Very nice staff, by the way. Also great cookies by the elevator in the afternoon!
There was a shuttle bus to the Fair just a block from the hotel, which ran frequently and was extremely convenient. A couple blocks from the hotel is a restaurant and nightclub area. We went to a brew pub/restaurant that was great (sorry, don't remember the name).
There were some minor problems - only 1 elevator was working (and there are only 2 to begin with), but we didn't experience any major delays. Also, the place that is supposed to serve Starbucks there is only open during the week, and the nearest Starbucks is several blocks away.
All in all, a very nice stay!
