From the moment we arrived we felt very welcomed by everyone. We were offered a better room as one had just become available. We had just driven many long days and really appreciated the lovely room. It was spacious, the linens were very soft and the room had a lovely clean smell. We went downstairs to ask for dinner recommendations and had a great conversation with two young employees who were really fun to talk with. They gave us several great suggestions. They obviously knew and liked downtown Des Moines. And we had a fantastic dinner at a great Italian restaurant. We were only there one night, and I thought we would just have breakfast on our way, but when we saw how nice the food was on the breakfast buffet, we stayed for breakfast. There was a great selection that could satisfy even the most health conscious.
This hotel is great for dining and shopping. It is a few blocks from the State Capitol Building, making it great for visitors. The city parking garage is across the street and cheap. The hotel will be closed for renovations from December 2015 to March 2016.
Comfortable room but food left in mini fridge smelled bad and had to call front desk to dispose of. Bathroom had damp musty smelling shower curtain and no working exhaust fan. Beds were comfortable. 3rd floor ice machine not working, had to go to 5th floor. Rooms were quiet.
This is a relatively new hotel so it's fresh. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the breakfast was very good for this type of hotel. Street parking is available, and it's easy to reach most places in Des Moines.
