Positive Reviews

Downtown Des Moines for drinking and dining.

Guests thought this hotel to have a fantastic location for exploring all of the attractions of downtown Des Moines; firstly, since it was located right on the banks of the Des Moines river; secondly, because it was a short walk away from a tantalizing array of bars, cafes, restaurants and even clubs; and thirdly, since it offered a convenient on-site parking solution for those driving in.

Like well-equipped mini apartments.

Those looking to save a little on eating out found the kitchens to be handy, and moreover, the suites were said to be very attractive, clean comfortable, spacious and in possession of absolutely wonderful bathrooms — in short, apparently more like a cozy apartment.

Hospitable staff and free meals on offer.

According to reviews, this hotel's staff was mentioned by those who stayed as being very friendly and hospitable, and some nights even hosted receptions with free food and drinks. On top of this, the hotel's complimentary buffet breakfasts were thought to offer a decent start to the day, including all of the expected hotel breakfast fare.

Negative Reviews

Light sleepers beware: can be noise from train.

The only drawback noted by guests who stayed here was that there was a train line running adjacent to the hotel, which apparently caused some noise at night. On that note, some reviews suggested that light sleepers should request a room on the other side of the hotel.
