Probably one of the best FI at which I've stayed. Within the Marriott chain, I generally try to avoid FI because of the very disappointing breakfasts. I'm writing this at a Perkins because I couldn't stand one more day of the powdered eggs. Ok maybe not powdered but the same low grade egg mix that they require all of the FI's in America to purchase.

My room was very nice, comfortable, and up-to-date. The gym had newer equipment but very limited free weights (2 sets of dumb bells - 5s and 15s). All in all a very good location and a well maintained property.

Our family stayed at this hotel very recently for a nearby wedding. The rooms were very nice & exceptionally clean & the bathrooms were large. The breakfast was good - great waffles! Staff was friendly and accommodating. We received a ticket for a free drink at the restaurant next door, but it can also be used at the little "market" next to the front desk. Some of our family ate next door and said the food was good, but the service was slow. We used the shuttle to get to and from the wedding. They are willing to go five miles, but doesn't include downtown. Our room was right across from the ice machine which was noisy. My mom was across the hall and said her room was quiet. Also her fan could run continuously which blocked noise. Ours turned on and off. But all around a great stay!

Room Tip: Make sure you are not across from the ice machine - room 127 was noisy.

The Fairfield Inn by the Des Moines airport was very well kept. They have a good breakfast bar. The location to the airport and the proximity to downtown make it a very nice choice for visitors to the area.

We just flew in to Des Moines for a weekend wedding. We selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor ratings and user reviews. After driving up and down Fleur Drive (road adjacent to airport) we quickly realized we did select the best property! The hotel appears to be on the new side. All is very clean and even a wee bit "stylish." Great value for the money and the staff appear attentive and eager to assist you.

If you have a car and experience some down time - Des Moines is surprisingly small and easy to negotiate. The hotel is about 2 miles from the zoo. About 20 minutes to a huge shopping "district" called Jordan Creek. Downtown is a quick drive too - must take a look at the state capital building!

Room Tip: With the lobby, restaurant, pool and gym facility on the first floor - would recommend requesting a...

New hotel, clean, quiet, friendly staff. Right next to airport. Consider staying here! Bright lobby, plenty of space to work in. Breakfast is your traditional grab n go. Restaurant next door is worth a visit, especially if you get the drink coupon.

Room Tip: Doesn't matter, tight building, well built, noise is not a factor.

Pros
The place is immaculate - very clean
Very new - its looks it was built in the last couple of years
Great breakfast - but be sure to get there before 9am which is when breakfast ends - they appear to be sticklers for that
1 mile from the airport
Ample parking

Con
None really other than $150/night is a little pricey for Des Moines 2.5 * but the great breakfast somewhat makes up for it and the place is extremely well kept
