The location, it was near the parking garage to catch the shuttle bus to the State Fair. We also enjoyed the River walk and view. Breakfast was good, had many choices.

There was a moderate drip in the bathroom under the toilet...I had to put extra towels down (5 ) so our bathroom floor wouldn't flood. The whirlpool was closed. When I called to ask about the $50 being processed for incidentals after our stay the receptionist was rude.

Great view whether you were facing the river or not.

Hotel was very close to Wells Fargo which made getting to and from events easy.

Love the location and easy access to Wells Fargo. Breakfast was good, parking was easy, rooms were updated and staff was helpful. My only complaint is the noise. We could hear everything from the room next door through the adjoining door - it was almost as though we were in the same room. Awkward. There was a lot of noise in the hallway after midnight that came right through the door as well. Soundproofing would be a great update to make!

Convenient location to Wells Fargo Arena. Super friendly staff. Very accommodating.

We were able to walk everywhere, The staff was nice especially the lady who served us breakfast, everyday she did it wit a smile and greeted us with good morning! This meant a lot! She was there Saturday and Sunday Morning! Great job!

The property was clean and was centrally located to my location.

Property was excellent and all staff were friendly, professional and helpful. We made sure they heard from us before we left.

The beds were super comfortable. The staff that checked us in was not friendly or welcoming. No ice machine on the floor that we were on.

Nice hotel, enjoyed views of the river. While I didn't use it, the fitness center looked OK, the pool is a little on the shallow side but looked clean. The complimentary breakfast was as good as most that I have tried.

Great location. Here for a school competition and needed a hotel close to the venue. Nice renovation.

Nice place. Convenient to downtown and attractions. Kinda pricey for the room amenities.

The price (Through Orbitz) was fairly competitive for the downtown area of Des Moines, IA. Considering what the other hotels charge in the area, this was more than fair. -- cheaper than most, but had a bit more to offer than a couple of the inns that were less. It was Clean, comfortable, etc. Breakfast was outstanding. The pool was extremely freezing! That was really the only "glitch" in the system.

Trip was great, the woman who checked us in was very friendly and told us about a few different promotions that the hotel had going. Breakfast was above expectations and was very enjoyable. I stayed with a group of people and the overall experience was worth what we paid. Definitely recommend!

It's a bit overpriced in my book but it did the job.

We stayed during the eagles concert in September. So close to the venue. We were very impressed. Good restaurant too. Will definitely stay again.

There is no Whirlpool in our pool area, And we have had the pool opened daily. We also do not charge 50.00 for Incidentals at check in, I am unsure if this was directed at another hotel?
