“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

Beautiful hotel with friendly service. Was under current remodeling in the main entrance area with new tile lighting and painting during our stay but was still a nice place. Very close to the airport with little noise of any planes. Breakfast was nice and filling but hours end at 9am during the weekdays and this was hard after late nights at the race track thats almost an hour away. Great place and would recommend to others.

We wanted a hotel with a good Pool Area..and that is exactly what we got! It was quite and secluded. Water was a good temperature.

The Rooms we're very large and decorated well. They weren't the cleanest though. And for as large as the rooms were they were not very funtional. Doors hit walls and other doors, tough to navigate in the bathrooms. Also we noticed dishes in the hallways that we're there for well over 18 hours...maybe they were understaffed..but thats just gross!

The hotel was a bit pricey for what you get though. They WHOLE place is under construction(which is fine..it happens) But the price should have been set accordingly. They started working on our neighboring room at 7:00am on a Monday Morning! It was loud. That's ridiculous for a hotel..where people are on vacation often and would like some R & R. I understand you need to work when you can....but I just think the hotel is illmanaged.

The breakfast was at the attached Johnnys Steak house. It was bland! (read my seperate review on our dinner there also..not impressed)

It was all and all a good hotel. I don't know if I would stay again. We stayed at the fairlield across the street a few months ago..I would pick it over the Radisson.

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get a room next to a room thats under construction.

We decided to stay here the night before our early flight out of Des Moines airport. The cost seemed really high but we could park there all week while on vacation. Everything was good for our stay and the ride to the airport. When we returned to the airport, we were told to call this number on this card to get a ride back to the car at the hotel. We were told to wait until after we got our bags to call. We got our bags, I called the number, NO ANSWER...... We called again and again and again. NO ANSWER...... I tried different extensions. NO ANSWER.... I started to call a cab and thought maybe I should call the restaurant in the hotel. I talked to a girl there and she suggested that I call the Fairfield Inn because they share the same shuttle. I called that number and my call was answered first ring. We received good service from that point, but we were minutes away from calling a cab after overpaying for a hotel room in order to utilize their shuttle and parking services.

I stayed in this hotel after arriving on a late flight to Des Moines. The hotel is currently being rennovated and I stayed in a lovely recently rennovated room. The service was outstanding and the room was very clean. Breakfast was included in the restaurant adjoining the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Only stayed there one night. Would loved to have stayed longer. Clean, great staff, and easy access to what we wanted to do. Simple pool, but did the trick. By far the best breakfast we have ever had at a hotel. Amazing! Would definitely be our first choice when we get back to Des Moines!

This hotel is right next to the Des Moines airport. It has a park and fly option that allows you to leave your car in their lot for the duration of your vacation and then they give you a shuttle to and from the airport. It has good sized rooms, couch/hide-a-bed, sleep number bed, fridge, microwave and coffee pot. There is a restaurant and bar attached to the hotel where you have to go for breakfast for your food voucher.

Our sleep number bed went back to it's original setting after each night by the time we had waken up so not sure what the problem was there. We did talk to the shuttle driver who stated that there were renovating all of the rooms and were currently renovating the 4th floor first and working their way down. So if you stay here, request the 4th floor as that will be all new. We didn't hear any airport noise from our room which was a relief as we stayed here two nights.

We didn't use the pool or hot tub but it looked nice. The workout room was decent. Very small but it did have a flat bench and squat rack.

It must have been a bad week for staff or something because everyone else seems to have positive reviews on the staff. We however, didn't have that experience. Everyone acted very uninterested in helping us from the time we checked in until we left. It was definitely a struggle getting any assistance. If it wasn't for that, we would have rated "excellent".

This hotel was ok. The lobby seemed clean. The staff seemed nice. The AC in the room was so loud though. It needs an upgrade. The sleep number bed was nice but mid way through the night it changed and went to rock hard on its own. Out TV didn't work originally but they did fix that. The hotel looks a little dated, especially in the bathroom. Oh and our toilet did not flush right at all. Not sure if it is due to water saving add ons put into an older toilet or ot. Thy need to fix that for sure.
