“Stylish and Comfortable”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

I stayed here one night while my father was in the hospital nearby. I think this is a new hotel. The room décor is very attractive and comfortable. The hotel is located in the Capital District so there is a lot nightlife nearby. There is construction going on adjacent to this hotel so it wasn’t easy to find the main entrance. The hotel has an attached parking garage, and you enter the hotel through the parking garage. Breakfast was typical of the Residence Inn brand—e.g., oatmeal, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy. Maybe they should spruce up the breakfast offerings to match the contemporary, stylish room décor? Overall, I would highly recommend this property when visiting downtown Des Moines for business or pleasure.

Thank you for your comments about our NEW Residence Inn.
Matching modern décor in a comfortable setting was a goal of ours.
This was done to ensure a pleasant experience in our all suite downtown hotel.
We truly appreciate your recommendation and look forward to having you as our guest some time soon.
