We were in Des Moines for just one night for a weekend exploration of a new town. I checked out all the hotels in the area online, reading the reviews and comparing pricing, etc. This hotel was highly rated, and rightly so. For where we wanted to be and what we wanted to do, this met our needs. There is valet parking at an additional charge, but you can park FREE on the street on the weekend. Malo is the BEST restaurant in the area!

I thought this was a great hotel. Our room was clean and bed was comfy. Within walking distance to the Wells Fargo arena which is why I chose it. Restaurant on site was reasonable with good food. The only thing I could complain about was not having a refrigerator in the room. When we asked for one they were all out, so ask early if you want one! Overall, staff was friendly and I was happy with the valet parking! I would definitely stay again if I was going to the arena!

Rooms are excellent, as usual, for an Embassy Suites. Beds are very, very comfortable. Wifi is web browsing only. The evening reception and breakfast can be busy and full. More guests than tables. Staff is super helpful, especially the airport shuttle.

"New property. Nice and bigger rooms and bathroom "
Unique experience. They offered free shuttle around Downtown and airport. For entire week while shuttle was out of service they provided free cab to every traveler every day twice.
I have never heard or experience personalized service of this level.

Nice place to stay for all activities in the downtown Des Moines area, Wells Fargo Arena, and all hospitals in the area. They did have shuttle that will take you anywhere/pickup within the radius up till 10:00 p.m. They are going through Re-model and if you like quiet request a non downtown view room.
