There was no hot water when i took a shower. Parking cost was $15 and we were not informed of that until we arrived at the hotel.

The staff was very polite and our room was clean and comfortable. The hallways were a bit shabby (dirty carpet), but since the room was so clean, we didn't mind as much. The location was nice and we enjoyed the view of the river and capitol building.

The door to the bathroom kind of drug a little when shutting and very bright in room, need curtains that close all the way other than that it was a good stay.

Great view and a nice clean room. Easy access to the garage from our floor.

The bathroom wasn't all that clean. There was hair from a prior occupant on the floor, sink, and tub.

Thank you for the stay you guys are wonderful. Your beds ***** Five Stars!!!!!!!!!

Location is great! Rooms were clean and the parking garage is convenient.

Quiet, good location, decent free breakfast. Staff was all very kind and helpful.

Good location. Clean and staff were great, a little pricey for Iowa

Lovely room with a faulty air conditioning system. Very good staff.

Nice clean hotel. The night staff was a little grumpy yet helpful, the morning staff were simply great!! Will stay there again.

Nice downtown hotel, perfectly placed. Hotel staff were very friendly, room was very clean. Car parking charge of 15 dollars seemed a little excessive but I guess space is of a premium. In all this is a well positioned hotel in downtown Des Moines.

Hotel superb, the only thing was missing was the sign, hotel was not easy to find without it, I understand they are not allowed by city to put sign on, but Marriott next door had better sign visible from the street.

Me and my children really enjoyed our stay they loved the pool the pool area was very nice. The staff was very nice. They have free breakfast. The View was great our room overlooks the river. Overall very pleased and very happy I chose this hotel

Great location to Des Moines, up to date rooms, clean, good coffee bar, river walk, staff helpful

Perfect location and excellent staff. I messed up my reservation by forgetting to book a day but they fixed my mistake wonderfully.
