The location, decor, and staff at Hotel Fort Des Moines are great. The air conditioning in the hotel was very poor. I would estimate are room was 80 degrees or warmer. They gave us a fan and that helped some but if it's going to be hot outside during your stay I would recommend staying somewhere else.
We stayed at Hyatt Place for 6 nights last week. We liked this hotel a lot. The hotel is super clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The location is good, close to convention center and restaurants.
