Okay, so the hotel is listed on the National Historic Register. It's cool, but not THAT cool. This hotel reminds me of a quaaint, boutique European, albeit larger, hotel that has a very small town, proprietorish feel. Tha said, the personalities of the staff are corporate, but its iowa...so everyone is nice.
The key to this place is location. It;s within a 5 minute walk of Court Avenue, which is home to a multitude of high end restaurants, diners, pizza joints, even a crab ragoon pizza!
Seriously, the rooms are nice; redecorated and comfy--but Europeanish in their quirky angles, smallish bathrooms, smallish counters, etc. So what! It's down town Des Moines. The price is reasonable, and you can walk to everything. Like I said---it's Europe!
