I booked a reservation through Hotwire. So I got a very good deal. The place was excellent and every thing was clean. The bed was comfy and the room was spacious and well organized. The breakfast food was a good variety and had fruits and cereals plus omelet to order. The manager was great about solving a problem to some friends who had the same reservation. Will definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for two days on business. Was very surprised by the super-large room I received...a very big corner unit. If you need a bathtub, there was no tub at all...but shower was big enough for two people. Really large room for the price i paid on hotwire. Staff was great and valet parking quite reasonable. Bed was king-size and extremely comfortable..I did not want to get up in the morning, as a result. Another positive...I brought my tooth brush not realizing the suitcase I never really unpack was out of toothpaste. And there was already a little tube of free toothpaste in the room. AWESOME. Another nice thing...there is real food...sandwiches, salads, etc. in the lobby available for purchase anytime you get hungry. This is a real plus for those checking in late at night like me who had not had a chance to eat before arriving. Staff was so friendly...and the car was at the front door within minutes each time I came down and wanted to use it. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. No complaints.

Room Tip: I can only speak for the corner units like the one I got, but they are very large, so I would defini...

I've stayed so many places which attempt to cater to the business traveler and wonder if they have actually talked to a business traveler sometimes. The Hyatt Place in Des Moines appears to have studied and aced the test. The dining concept is perfect, not formal but more functional including salads, freshly prepared options, and many 24-7 options including protein bars, etc in addition to the regular continental breakfast setup. The rooms were very comfortable and stylish, and the workspace in the room was perfect and had plenty of *visible* outlets, which is both uncommon but greatly appreciated. Finally, the staff there is to be commended for their knowledge of the area, helpfulness, and friendliness. Well done at this location and I will certainly seek out the Hyatt Place brand for my future and frequent travels.

A terrific place to stay. Staff is tops, better than most hotels I've stayed at, including Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons.

Ask for Jamie at the front desk! She rocks!

This was our second time at the Hyatt Place in downtown Des Moines. The hotel is lovely and the staff is friendly. They offer a free shuttle to anywhere within a 5 mile radius. FYI: if you stay there on a weekend, you can park for free on the street very near the hotel.
