Nice hotel! Staff was great. Bed was comfortable.

Nice, reasonably priced hotel in suburbs. Good Bistro. Staff was friendly and very helpful

This was a very nice and relaxing space. A good place to rewind after a day of soccer tournaments, it provided good food option, nice courtyard and it felt vet secluded for being so city based.

Great Hotel! Booked 2 rooms for a meet up with family. Easy to find. Nice location. Clean rooms and friendly staff.

The hotel was a great place to stay away from home. We were in town for a wedding and the location for us was great. We took a few pictures at the hotel that turned out great. the family had fun. It was clean and a fun time away from home.

The location for this hotel is wonderful for your des moines needs. Lots of food choices and close enough to pretty much any event that may be in the area.

Nice hotel for the price, we stayed there for a night on thanksgiving weekend. Location was okay.

nice reception area and staff, newer facilities, amenities, parking and surroundings. Location a bit awkward but okay. Missed the free breakfast but had facilities for food so no problem.

The hotel was awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The entire hotel was flawless from the lobby to the room.

Stayed here May 2014 in town for a Drake University graduation. Very comfortable, and clean. No bells and whistles but all we needed since this wasn't our sneak away weekend destination. A little confusing to get to since there are many hotels in a three block area surrounding this location. Room was very quite and very comfortable. No courtesy breakfast of any sort was disappointing.

Great, clean comfortable rooms. Staff excellent. overall a great nights stay.

The price was right. The room was very clean, but on the small side. Didn't get a chance to use a lot of the amenities, but the lobby and the lounge looked nice.

The room are little small to have soft sleeper pulled out but otherwise it was great. Was little surprised with no fridge in room. It was very clean and quiet room all in all nice stay

The room was on the small size, but everything worked great. Staff was very friendly. Room and pool were clean. I would stay there again. We were within 15 minutes of everything we wanted to go see.

Great staff. Nice choices for food and drink. Would help if there were more mirrors in the room. Will stay here next trip into town.

Rooms, staff, location, etc. were all good. Hotel is designed more for business travelers than for weekend recreation. Available food was apparently very expensive-- and more 'snackish.' Bar prices were exorbitant. We went to nearby food/drink establishments. It wasn't quite the 'meet with friends' kind of place we had hoped.

The staff was AMAZING! The room was small but very comfortable and clean. The elevator even smelled clean!!!! I would recommend this hotel!

Went for an annual girls weekend of Christmas shopping before the rush!! It was geographically in the middle of all the places we like to shop! Room was generous in size and comfortable. Only downside was the coffeemaker was in the closet!! Vanity counter was very tight. Only one person could ready at a time. No mirror out in the room for someone else to dry hair, makeup etc.

Convenient location to shopping, restaurants, and I35.

I've been traveling mostly in Europe or Asia lately and this hotel was a refreshing change. The rate was very reasonable at around $100, and the room was about twice as big as some of the German hotels I stay in. Big bathroom, only complaint there was that the toilet had a small leak at the base but not a huge deal. Liked the digital temp control which got the rooom right where i wanted for temperature within a couple of minutes. Internet connection was good.
