Knowing that I'd have to be in town for an extended length of time, I sought out a hotel that offered a suite and kitchen. Even though this location was a bit further from my office than others, I was very happy with my choice. The room was very spacious, with a large kitchen, and separate sitting area/bed area. Bathroom was nice and clean.
Check-in was fast, although our attempt to check-in early was denied because the hotel was fully booked. Which was fine, it was worth a try. As a loyalty program member I received a package of Oreos upon check-in ... aren't I special?
The main lobby area was quite large with a fireplace, sofas and various tables/chairs. I was happy to find that in addition to a complimentary breakfast, the hotel also served a complimentary light dinner along with complimentary beer and wine. The dinner menu was on the fridge in the room, so I was able to see ahead of time what was being served. The first night they served a very tasty BBQ chicken pizza. Had I not had plans with colleagues for dinners, I would have utilized the dinner each night of my stay.
Breakfast was also quite good, although it seemed slow to come out at times. The morning we left, although it WAS early, it was still within the breakfast hours and there was very little breakfast available. They could stand to purchase a new toaster, as the one they had took forever.
My co-worker used the pool area and had no complaints.
The location was close to the highway, and not far from a newer mall/shopping area.
Will definitely consider this hotel when returning to Des Moines.
