Disappointing for a Radisson

Select Comfort bed did not work Room service was delayed until guest rooms were cleaned for incoming guests--very late in day before bed made, towels replaced, etc. Guests staying over pay same for room and should have same service! Towels and cups not always replaced in room. Breakfast buffet was only mediocre--omelet bar was never staffed or offered even though it was set up. It was very quiet and the hotel was very accommodating in allowing grandchildren hotel privileges. Rooms were clean, but were not as update as one would expect at a Radisson. We were disappointed in as much as we expected more at an up scale motel.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Des Moines Farmers Market on Saturday is a treat and should not be missed! Bass Pro Shop is also worth a visit as is the Living History Farm! Blank Park Zoo is a fun place to take children and is very near the hotel--it is small, but interactive--and can be seen in a couple of hours.

Radisson Des Moines

The hotel was clean with spacious rooms. Furniture is becoming a little dated but overall fine. Clean bathroom, safe area, very close to airport and great mini bus service to airport (the guy also dropped us downtown one night at no charge). Nice pool and hot tub. About 10 minute drive to downtown Des Moines

DoubleTree Des Moines Airport

A different layout for the typical Doubletree, but an excellent restaurant attached, and the proximity to the airport is fabulous as a time saver....if you do not need to be downtown this is it!

Fine Hotel

Nice, clean hotel. Friendly staff. Good restaurant, though a little on the pricey side. Need a car- hotel is surrounded by a field. Bare bones workout room, but nice pool and hot tub. Overall, nice pleasant stay. This hotel was on the upper end for the price. From what I saw, I could have been in a less expensive hotel that is a dive or one that is nicer, but $100 more a night.

Great location next to airport

Was first concerned being right next to the airport. Was never bothered by the sound of planes and didn't even notice it other than a few times during the day. Clean, good amount of space in the room. Great breakfast buffet. Friendly and helpful staff. Easy access to anywhere in Des Moines.

Highly recommended

Really enjoyed the warm indoor pool. Included breakfast buffet was the best I've had at a hotel with an omelet station, bacon, potatoes, scrambled eggs, pastries, fruit, cereal, etc. Room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Would definitely choose the Radisson again.
