Great concert location.

Stayed one night in order to attend a concert at the Wells Fargo Arena. Great location! Walked just a few blocks to and from the event. Was able to avoid parking hassles and bottle-necked traffic.

Great location to visit with my son...

Just be sure to ask what events are going on while you are there. The wedding reception on the top floor had VERY LOUD music. I was on the 8th floor. Not sure if the reception was on the 10th or 11th floor. The front desk said the music would be off at midnight. It was 11PM when I called to say I can understand the lyrics to the song they were singing, 2 or 3 floors down from the event.

The good, the bad, and the ugly

Too close to freeway entrance/exit-traffic noise. Too close to hospital-heard sirens most of the night; Had to sleep with TV on.

Very happy with our stay

We were in Des Moines for a dance competition at the Events Center and loved the hotel's location right near the event. Spotless rooms, super comfy beds, and very gracious staff at the front desk and at the restaurant. The breakfast buffet was well done and suited our needs perfectly, as we needed to eat and go to get to our competition.

Close to downtown for Dam to Dam Race

The hotel is walking distance from downtown. Parking garage has easy access to the hotel. The pool was very warm and pretty big.
