Positive Reviews

Handy for downtown Des Moines and more

While this hotel is close to a number of local attractions, its location near the Iowa Events Center made it especially popular with business travelers. Those looking to head further afield were pleased to note that this property is also convenient for Des Moines International Airport.

Solid amenities

This hotel has a host of reliable amenities. To the relief of many business guests, the Wi-Fi is good and strong here. The breakfast has also garnered considerable praise, with a number of visitors very pleased at the quality of the hot selection. Finally, this hotel also boasts impressive views of the Des Moines River.

Great reception staff

In addition to its great location and good amenities, this hotel also boasts a solid staff who, by all accounts, go out of their way to ensure that guests have a peaceful stay in Des Moines.

Negative Reviews

Updated needed?

Despite solid stays, some just feel that this hotel lacks a little something. There is some suggestion that this property does look a bit dated and many have commented on older fixtures and furniture within their units.

Minor housekeeping concerns, musty rooms

There are occasional reports here of dirty and dusty rooms and blankets. Some also noted stained toilet seats and grubby counters. Additionally, a number of guests commented on musty, smoky smells in their rooms - even in non-smoking accommodation.

Noisy rooms

A number of guests commented that the walls seem to be rather thin here. While noise from other visitors wasn't an issue, the roar of passing cars did seem to pose a problem to those who were looking for a completely restful night's sleep.
