I stayed here with my wife for a little getaway without the kids. It was a newer option in the area and we were glad we chose it. It is located in a historic building that has been renovated.
The room was very nice, had a couch along with the king bed. It had a 42" HDTV that actually had HD channels to watch (most hotels seem to have HDTVs, but no HD programming). There was also a cool input panel on the cabinet under the TV. You can plug in HDMI, VGA, etc to view DVD's or your computer on the TV. I wish I had brought my connections along to utilize this feature. The room had nice high ceilings that made it feel bigger that it actually was.
Breakfast was good. They had breakfast sandwiches (see picture) along with the usual hotel breakfast food.
Parking was a little of a trick. I wish there was a better designated area for you to pull up and drop off before parking. There was a spot for valet, but I didn't want to pay extra for that. It was the weekend so I found free parking in the city garage across the street.
The pool was small and there was no hot tub, this was the only real disappointment of the hotel.
Apparently there is a coffee shop in the lobby, but I guess the front desk clerk must run it because I never saw anyone behind the counter.
The skywalk system in Des Moines makes this hotel easily accessible to all the restaurants and attractions downtown.
