I have stayed here in...

Liked: Love the location, nice to stroll around East village, but also close to downtown/Court Ave area
Disliked: The Iowa State Wrestling tournament was going on (we didn't know that when we booked). Lines for social hour were ridiculous ( we walked to store and bought our own drinks for our room) and extreme noise level went on until after 1:30 am. I was about to call and complain when the party outside our door finally broke up.

Perfect place to stay with...

Liked: Beautiful open atrium with waterfalls. Right downtown Des Moines so easy to get to the hospital, restaurants, etc Room was spacious and modern with beautiful views of the river. Evening appetizers were a real treat and breakfast buffet was excellent. Staff was aware that our son was having cancer surgery and they went above and beyond to be helpful and supportive during our stay. We will make this our 1st choice next time we come to Des Moines.
Disliked: Parking garage was a ways away and a hassle when heavy snows were falling. Also had to pay extra for parking.
