Comfortable and Baby Friendly!

Stayed here to visit some friends with my 9-month old baby. Room was very clean and easy for baby to move around. She loved the huge windows! My only complaint is that I wish there was a free breakfast!

One night business trip. Average Hotel

Ordinarily, I stay at the Embassy Suites downtown when I am in Des Moines for business, however, the Embassy and many of the nicer hotels were sold out for some reason so I stayed at this Sheraton by default. The hotel was average. The location is good, as it is right off I-35 and really close to I-80/I-235. I waited for probably 10 minutes to check in due to a chatty hotel guest in front of me and only one hotel clerk. Once I reached the check-in desk, the clerk was quick and pleasant. The hotel room seemed a bit outdated and there were two large dark stains on the carpet which were a little gross-looking. Beyond the stains on the carpet, the room appeared clean and the bathroom was (thankfully) quite clean. The bed was very comfortable and I was able to get a good night's sleep. I did not use any of the amenities so I cannot comment on those. I did order room service for breakfast and ordered an egg white, cheese, and tomato omelette, which was probably the worst-tasting omelette I've ever had. There were other selections on the menu but I was trying to go for one of the healthier options. It came with fresh fruit and juice which were both fine. Overall, I would probably elect to stay at one of the nicer hotels, such as the Embassy downtown, before I would stay at the Sheraton again, however, it was acceptable for my overnight stay.

Very clean, great location for far west side of Ramona, easy in & out

We arrived very late because of flight delays. Our room was ready. They helped us fine a late night place to eat. I was hoping to swim for fitness, but the pool was over crowed with children. Not a problem, but not a good place for adult who wants to swim. Fitness center was also full of kids.

-1 Star

After booking a two-room suite with refrigerator, microwave and fold out couch, My wife and I arrived with our two children and dog for a five night stay to find that the best room available was a single king non-smoking. Apparently they don't guarantee room type. That's the kind of information that would be helpful before a 14-hour ride cross country.

Sheraton West Des Moines

The main issue with our experience was the cleanliness of the room. It smelled like old laundry, and the bathroom towels from the previous guests had not been washed yet. This is the reason for the negative review. I would recommend it based upon location.

Good Overnight Stay

Clean, comfortable and convenient. Could have used more overhead lighting in the room entrance. Great to have two TV's. Water apparently leaked from the bathroom onto the carpet BEFORE WE ARRIVED. Not a big deal to me but could cause mold if not quickly corrected.

Could have slept better

Everything was good except the pillows did not support my head. I sank so deep that I woke with a neckache.
