My husband and I came to Des Moines to work the USA Track and Field National Championships, and we stayed at the Renaissance Hotel for six nights. The Renaissance is housed in a stately building of the sort that "they don't build anymore", in downtown Des Moines. Many things are nearby; a city parking deck is across the street, and good restaurants are within walking distance.
We had a 'deluxe king' room, with a comfortable king-sized bed, plasma TV, internet access. Closet space was ample in a walk-in closet area, which also housed a small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Staff were courteous and friendly and housekeeping was efficient. The only complaint my husband had concerned the dresser (smallish, if you're the kind of traveler who prefers to fold and store your things). My only complaint concerned the bathroom -- it's well-appointed with new fixtures and tiling, plenty of thirsty towels, but a pedestal sink instead of a vanity, so there's not much surface area for two people.
Breakfast in the restaurant off of the lobby was very good, with plenty of variety and good service. I would stay here again.
