Beautiful place.

Great hotel! Bright, clean, and incredibly comfortable. Our kids loved the pool. Breakfast was good-but lacked some fresh fruit options for the price. Great and attentive staff, easy and convenient parking. Enjoyed our stay here-hopefully will be able to return.

The hotel staff is very nice and extremely accommodating. The hotel is clean and modern.

Staff was super friendly, hotel seemed very clean and recently updated.

Very comfortable and quiet. Great location and the restaurant food was good!

We stayed here because they had a hot tub. The hot tub was not working and staff report it was working just low flow jets. Would have stayed some where else.

All good. But waffles at breakfast would have made it superb!

Beautiful room that was spotlessly clean. We loved it.

Please look into replacing the ceiling in the master suite in the kitchen and tv area. It is all cracked and stuff hanging from the wall

Great staff, great hotel. Close to everything you could want to do

We were in the Des Moines area to visit family. The hotel is recently remodeled and very nice. After we checked in, we had a drink from the bar in the lobby to relax, and then an omelet for breakfast in the morning. It was a lovely stay!

Room service was unavailable far too early. No iPhone chargers available, even for purchase. In this day and age is mind-boggling. While the staff were pleasant enough, the last thing you want to hear at what is supposed to be a higher-end hotel is “no”, over and over again. The front desk staff were in t-shirts for the most part; it appeared they were housekeepers operating the desk. While the decor is high end, it felt like a Comfort Inn.

Beautiful set up. Very helpful and nice staff. Pool was great too! Free coffee with to go cups was a really nice trear!

Connor at the front desk was absolutely GREAT! He made sure we were happy with everything and really went out of his way to make us feel welcomed. Very clean and worth the trip!
