The front desk staff was courteous and helpful. The only downside was that you have to use the valet parking since the hotel does not have their own parking lot. There are metered parking outside that is free after 6 pm on weekdays. The meters might be free on weekends. We just did not want to get up the next morning to feed the meter since we were here on a Thurs. The hotel is close to a lot of restaurants (within walking distance.) On Friday nights, the streets near the hotel are noisy due to the party people. The bed is just O.K. for comfort and the pillows are on the flimsy side. However, the room is big and nice.

We found the staff to be friendly, professional and responsive to our needs. We were only there for one day; however, we experienced front desk, breakfast buffet and utilized the shuttle bus to and from a concert. It was a very rainy evening and the staff went out of its way to make us very comfortable. We plan to stay there again when visiting Des Moines, IA.

The check in process was very fast and easy. Valet was quick and helpful. The room was clean and quiet. Hotel staff was all very pleasant. My one night stay was made very simple throughout the whole process. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Des Moines area.

Nice hotel to stay at with friendly staff. Not too many hotel amenities, but it's priced right. Very close to downtown event centers, bars, and restaurants. Onsite restaurant has decent food at decent price. Room and elevator/hallway areas need some renovating. Restaurant at top floor/tower is awesome with great views at night.

To start the address is missing the "East" which is pretty important when in downtown Des Moines and there's bridges. Took us an hour to find the hotel so a bit stressed by the time we got there. It is super nice and very clean. Staff were very personable. There is an $18 fee for parking but it's underground and secure. Restaraunts galore and our favorite Zombie Burger was just across the street. They also offer free shuttle service within a 5 mile radius.
