Negative Reviews

Expensive in-room Wi-Fi

This hotel does not provide free Wi-Fi in the private rooms, making it difficult for guests on business or guests who just want to stay connected to social media. This can increase the total amount spent on a trip by quite a lot. .

Parking can be a problem

Marriott Des Moines Downtown only provides an on-site valet parking service, something that most guests do not want, but are forced to use. There is limited off-site parking available and the valet service is quite expensive. This will dramatically increase your total amount paid for your trip. .

Some might find it outdated

Although most guests enjoyed their stay at this hotel, some feel as though the hotel could do with some updates in terms of decor and furniture. This would do a lot to help the overall image of this hotel. .
