4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2007

We stayed at the Sheraton for two nights while in West Des Moines. The king sized bed was very comfortable. The room has been refurbished and is very clean. Maid service was excellent. The bartenders were very friendly and had some good advice on local bars and restaurants to go to. We took a shuttle to nearby restaurant free of cost. They will pick you up before 11:00 pm. Our shuttle driver, Leah, was very nice! The only thing that could be better is if the breakfast buffet was included with the room. The candid traveler photos look exactly like the hotel in person. We didn't eat at the restaurant that is located in the hotel, but the food looked awesome.

  • Liked — comfortable beds
  • Disliked — Breakfast was not included in the price of the room.

We stayed here during our coast-to-coast drive across the US. This hotel has recently been refurbished and rebranded from a Holiday Inn to a Sheraton. Our room was generally very nice, with brand new modern décor, nice furniture and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was very small though, and not everything had been replaced – the tiling looked a bit old and the bath had a hole in the side which had been filled. The room was also a bit short on power sockets – the one by the desk was being used by the hotel broadband interface. Wired internet was $10 a night and a good speed. The rest of the hotel still needs some work – in places it smells of smoke and the lifts in particular are a bit grotty. We had quite a good room service meal, which ended up free because they didn’t deliver it within 30 minutes! Overall I think they’ve done quite a good job to renovate what was probably a very tired looking property. I would recommend this hotel but don’t expect everything to be new.

Stayed October 2006

Very nice hotel - better than most Sheratons. Service is great, rooms are very nice, and the workout rooms offer 7 pieces of cardio equipment as well as free weights and a basic weight machine. The lobby was also recently redone and is very nice - it often has conferences so beware the long elevator wait around 7:30 in the morning. The main drawback of this hotel is the room service which used to be great but recently changed and is now mediocre at best. Still, I would definitely recommend it to business or leisure travelers alike.
