Not clean. No maid service. Had to get towels from staff. Poor beds. No fridge in room. Hot tub shut down. Had to be out early because of a parade on the street.

The hallways smell of smoke even if you have a non smoking room. The hallways and rooms were musty and sticky. We couldn't sleep it was so smelly and uncomfortable. We opened the window and had them run a de-smoker in our room but it didn't help.

Fairly close to where our activities were located.

Could have had a little bigger breakfast to choose from. A little pricey.

Location is convenient and easy to get to. Just outside Des Moines.

Bid for best price, so got HC accessible room. A/C was noisy, but nice night to have window open anyway. Unfortunately, the smokers bench was right outside my window so the choice was second hand smoke or noisy p-tac. I opted for the latter.

The courtyard was very nice. It had a fire place to turn on, and since it was a little cool that evening it was very enjoyable.

One of the staff was very rude when I asked about smoking in the courtyard.

The rest of the staff was very nice. We were very impressed with the rooms and food.

This hotel met or exceeded all of my expectation. Breakfast was amazing, the pool and hot tub were perfect and the room was clean and comfortable.

Nothing

I would recommend this hotel to families. The pool and breakfast made travelling with kids very easy. The view was amazing and best of all, I heard no other guests in the rooms above or to the side of us!

Location was perfect for what we where doing.

Our room was a smoking room and as a non-smoker, it stunk. Staff tried their best to remidy the problem, but only had smoking rooms open.

Stayed here several times, this was the worst experience we have had.

It was older and in poor condition. I was concerned about the security and cleanliness.

I checked out of the hotel right after I saw the room. It wasn't something that I wanted to spend the night in.

There was nothing that exceeded expectations at this hotel.

I did not like that they were not able to give us 2 a joining rooms even though one room was not occupied until a day later. One room stunk of cleaning supplies so bad had to change rooms. The other room door would not lock and was not fixed.

Location - convenience to our destination

The hotel was 'dated'. Definitely time to remodel rooms. Bathroom was very small. Noisy neighbors that kept us up into the early hours - 2am. Two calls to the front desk didn't deter them. Upon check-out, the staff did not ask, nor care about our stay.

The worst parking experience I've seen at a hotel in a long time - especially one with a multi-level parking ramp. The ramp was completely full (not because of too many guests - but because the slots were so narrow guests were taking up 2 slots. I ended up having to park across the street on a different property. Inconvenient and unsafe.

The location was nice. The food from the restaurant was VERY good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All bedding was white. I like that because you can see if the bedding is clean.

They offered a continental breakfast, but it wasn't free- it cost 9.50 for juice and toast, and another dollar on top of that if you want eggs or meat. I didn't purchase it, but that was according to the information book in the room.

I've The breakfast is very convenient

The Des Moines Embassy Suites though need to pay more attention to their room maintenance. The AC was very noisy, the bathroom fan wasn't working and the bathroom door stuck probably from the extra bathroom moisture. Several lights also didn't work.

I've stayed at Embassy suites in the past on business trips and having internet access in the rooms was a must. I was surprised that this was an added charge now. Odd to pass your hotel off as a business friendly hotel and not provide that basic service at the rates they charge for nights stay

Breakfast

They did not hold my reservation for two double beds. I received a king room after I paid 30 dollars extra for a diuble queen. They could not get me the room that I reserved.

There was no one thing. Everything and everyone was on top of their game.

$9.00/day for internet access is Information Highway Robbery.

Downtown parking not always convenient, but not bad. Meals were pricey. No mini-bar. Almost no wait for elevators. Nice contemporary decor.

Breakfast was varied and fresh

Room was clean, hotel was quiet, beds were comfortable, breakfast had a lot of options. I was disappointed with their customer service, however, because our blow dryer didn't work and even though I called down and they said they were going to replace it, they never did. Normally it would not be a big deal, but I was staying at the hotel so I could be fresh for a conference I was presenting at that morning, but instead of looking professional, I had to go to the conference with wet hair.

We were a full hour ahead of schedule and they were more than welcoming in giving us an early check in. They made it a painless and speedy process and were incredibly friendly.

Not enough pillows on the bed. I'm a bed hog and my girlfriend is a pillow hog. With a lack of pillows I had to listen to her nag all night instead of getting sleep. I wanted to smother her but she had all the good smothering pillows tucked under her arms

Elevator was always readily available it seemed. Never had to wait at all. Check out was extremely fast and we had zero complaints about this hotel.

Price was right; met basic need for accommodation

The room reeked of smoke - yes, it was listed as a smoking room - but I was not prepared for the overwhelming stench. I opened the window but housekeeping closed it so when I returned the second day it was just as bad.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
