I stayed here during a business trip to visit a nearby customer. Checkin was quick and easy. The room was clean and comfortable. The location for work was great...and it is only about 20 minutes from Des Moines, if you want to go into town. The staff was vey friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel

I chose to stay here based on prior good reviews and was pleased to discover this hotel was even better than expected. We had two rooms for the night and rested very well. Great amenities. We really enjoyed their breakfast bar before hitting the road. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Only wish we had been staying longer.

Basketball tournaments seem to be our family's existence lately, so we travel frequently. Townplace Suites is quickly becoming one of favorite choices for lodging. Good location with easy access to sports venues and eateries. Friendly, professional staff. Clean rooms with plenty of space. Kitchenettes are a true value. Definitely a winner.

Stay at Marriott properties because love the points. Bad thing is Towneplace and Residence Inn only give 5 points per dollar versus 20 points at other Marriott properties . Staff was very pleasant and room small but functional. Wish the smoking area would not be right by the front door.

One week into a 2 month stay, this place is exactly what I needed while away from home. Friendly staff, super quiet, and everything I can think of on site. Outside grill, besides your in room kitchen, on site laundry, great signal strength wifi in the room, pool, good breakfast, extra food for purchase downstairs. It's a list.
