Wonderful - 4.5 out of 5

Verified Hotel Guest Fri, 13 July 2018

Liked: Great view of Des Moines, the river. Nice facility, I enjoy staying at Hotels where there are things to do, and you can relax at the hotel, this is a destination place, not a flop your gear and leave/sleep only kind of place.
Disliked: It really sucks that it does not have a hot tub. You can see where the hot tub used to be, but the area has been covered up. That was a huge let down for me.

Liked: The gentleman who checked me in was so nice!
Disliked: There was a backup of about 5 inches of stagnant water in my bar sink with lots of mold growing. It didn't smell but I was surprised it was there when I checked in.
