This was a nice hotel, but not over the top in any way when you consider the price. We were able to get a good rate, but the online listing was $179-$200. This is entirely for the location. Hotel offers continental breakfast, nice, clean rooms, indoor pool, and parking is available for $15 a night in the parking garage they share with the Residence Inn by Marriot next door. We chose it per it's location 1 block away from the farmer's market. We were able to walk to the farmer's market with our daughter in her stroller and avoided the parking chaos we've enduring in the past. If we didn't have a reason to stay downtown, we would've chosen a hotel elsewhere in Des Moines simply per the online price. Not thinking about the price, the staff was very friendly, the continental breakfast was good, rooms were clean and beds were comfy. We booked a king bed room, and it didn't offer a lot of room other than the bed. This was fine for the 3 of us, but if you're looking for a group to stay downtown, I would not try to put more than the norm for amount of people staying in 1 room.

Staff was friendly and helpful. We got upgraded to a waterfront suite on check-in. Beautiful view. Within walking distance to restaurants and bars. Across the street from a walking path on the river. Very nice hotel.

Excellent location. The service and quality were very good. Our family enjoyed the convenience of being near downtown, as most of our activities were in the downtown area. We usually stay at Hampton Inns due to the comfort of the beds.
