You can tell the building is old. The furniture in our suite was also old. The carpet looked old.

Great location! Staff was extremely friendly and helpful!

The property and its people are wonderful. The only problem is a lack of free guest parking.

Beautiful property...great amenities but room was not very clean...maintenance shut off our water and it never did work again...microwave broken

My stay was very good. I really liked the men who ran the shuttle, Brandon, the front desk, the people who made omelets etc. It was a very enjoyable trip.

Quiet area downtown. Nice location close enough to Drake University

Great location, friendly staff, good food, clean/big rooms

We stayed here for an event. It is a short walk to all the things we want to do, and they have a nice restaurant and bar if we want to stay in. We will definitely be back.

Great rooms nice price thanks for the upgrade I would rent again

The room I booked was all sold out, so we got moved up to a river view suite when we arrived. It was very nice of them to make that happen. The view was amazing and the room was very nice.

Hotel was clean and quiet. Staff was very nice. They had complementary drinks which were great. Also their free breakfast in the morning was amazing!

Stayed one night-3 guys. Des Moines was a good location to quickly decide Mo. or Ne. for least cloud cover to observe eclipse.

I do apologize for the water issue. The water was shut off in the bedroom sink and bar sink due to a leak. The bathroom should have still been fully functional. The leak was fixed and the water was returned earlier today. If we can do anything to make it right, please let us know.
