friendly staff, the best I've seen! Rooms were great, clean, and good sized! I really dont any anything negitive to say. We will be staying again!

The room was clean, and it was very quiet and pleasant. Our stay was enjoyable.

Central location to all courts. I'm an attorney and was there for a case. Only draw back is no restaurant or bar, but good location and nice hotel.

Excellent stay with excellent breakfast! Would stay again

Loved the large room and set up of the area, nice lounge/couch tv. Good breakfast. The parking worked out well, very close for downtown. We will definitely recommend to friends and stay in this brand again.

Monday-wednesday dinner meal. Short walk to wells arena

Very nicely designed room, upscale kitchen is tucked out of the view of the bed. Very comfy bed and linens.

Very disappointed in the room we ultimately got. I was expecting one suite with 2 bedrooms and instead got 1 room with 2 beds. This was not satisfactory as 4 adults did not want to sleep in one room. It was not the hotel's fault but the on-line booking. I will not do that again! The hotel was fairly accommodating and gave us an additional suite but not without some cost.

Friendly staff clean rooms nice pool and hot tub, great breakfast!

Right by the river downtown and within walking distance (<1 mile) to shops and restaurants.

Hotel rooms are clean and have mini kitchens. Very convienent for long or quick business trips.

Up until the 6th night we were okay with our stay. The breakfast is repetitious and just okay, there is not restaurant on site so you’re forces to cook or eat elsewhere. The main issue was neither, it was the fact that my daughter awoke in the wee hours to bug bites all over her lower part of her legs. The manager literally denying any responsibility. The never cleared our room during our entire 9 day stay as promised. The manager indicated she would “look into the maid cleaning and get back to me”. 3rd day and I’m still waiting on a call! I definitely WOULD NOT BOOK HERE AGAIN!

The staff is very friendly, great location, easy to walk to venues and restaurants. Great complementary breakfast. Rooms are comfortable.

Weekend room service was only by request. Considering we were checked in on Friday and left Monday morning, we had to request room service. However, the service person was very nice.

it was great! pleasantly surprised at how modern the room was with the kitchenette. I loved the layout. the beds were sooo comfortable! One teeny thing to add is more light in the bedroom. There was only a single light between the two queen beds.

The room was a really great room for the price I received from Orbitz. The suites feel like a small apartment and would definitely recommend for anyone staying more than a couple days. The only thing I would say I was not a fan of was there was a lot of kids at the pool. I know there’s families staying at the hotel but we went to the pool around 9:30-10 hoping no kids would be there. I think it would be nice if the pool was closed off to kids for at least the last hour of the pool being open.

Upon check in, representative asked if I was an awards member, I wasn't sure so she said she would check and let me know. Within a few minutes of getting into my room, she called to say I was and had placed this reservation on my account. Very friendly. Front staff was also very friendly at check out. Great location, great experience.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your stay with us was. We are sorry to hear the third party booking promised you something we were unable to deliver on. I am glad to hear that we were able to accommodate an additional room at a discount to make up for the error. We hope that next time your travels bring you to the Des Moines area that you think of us and we would be more than happy to work with you directly to ensure you receive the best possible customer service experience.
