    • The location was great for us as we we in town to enjoy the george strait concert and this hotel was wonderful. The housekeeping service was excellent, shower was nice.

    • Great location for downtown Des Moines, very comfortable hotel and the front desk staff were very friendly as well. The beds were super and the food that did show up was pretty good. The pool and the work out facility were nice.

      The room was not reserved.

    • Great location friendly staff and beautiful Hotel. Clean and reasonable rates, the lobby was like Grand Central Station. The service was fine, bed was comfortable and the towels were plentiful and seemed fresh.

      The quality of the room was not i expected and less than five minutes later was at my doorstep. The bathroom was also a bit dated.

    • Good location and value, also, parking on the streets downtown is free as well. Hotel restaurant has satisfactory buffet, starbucks in the lobby is a huge plus and the excellent service you expect from Marriott. The rooms are clean, spacious.

      The price for parking in Des Moines is ridiculous, employees do not seem to be connected to the guests.
