My boyfriend and I spent two nights at the Des Moines airport Hampton Inn last weekend, and we had a very pleasant stay. It was 101 degrees in Des Moines the first day we were there, but our room was nice, clean and cool, the outdoor pool was refreshing, and for the price we truly had no complaints. I used Hilton Honors points the first night, and paid for the second night. It's a quick 5 minute drive to all the great restaurants downtown, or to the interstate. We also enjoyed Skip's restaurant nearby (we should've taken the free Hampton shuttle!). There's a huge HyVee grocery and liquor store three blocks away, in addition to a nice movie theater, Walgreens, and several other retail stores and fast food restaurants, so we liked the location. The fitness center is well equipped with nice equipment, a TV, and cold drinking water, but it could use a fan. We've stayed downtown previously, and while it's nice to be able to walk most places, the Hampton Inn has free parking, free breakfast, quiet rooms, and a convenient location, especially if you're using the airport. I only heard a few planes during daylight hours, which didn't bother either of us. The free breakfast is of average quality, but there are several items from which to choose. As with the Hampton Inn in Duluth, MN, we thought the coffee in the breakfast area is terrible. Make coffee in your room with the provided coffee and machine; it is noticeably better. (A Starbucks is about three blocks north, too.)The staff is very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
