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

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.

We loved our room because it was beautiful, had everything we needed and more, plus it was dog friendly. Our room was spacious, clean, and luxurious. We felt like we were at a spa.

I don't think so. We really enjoyed it, and I just finished recommending it to my sisters-in-law for a weekend away for all of us.

The hotel was in a perfect location for walking along the river on the walking paths, dog watering fountains, a beautiful bridge with seating areas across the river, parks, music, downtown restaurants and clubs, and the Des Moines Farmers Market. When I made the reservation, I knew that the hotel was close to the Market, but not until we were walking around on Friday evening did we realize how ideal the location was. The hotel staff was extremely friendly, and our room was just the spot we needed to recharge after an extraordinarily stressful month.

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.

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.

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.

It was managed well by very helpful people. And it was centrally located in town

A lot of noise coming in from the street at night.

I'd stay there again, but with the amount of road noise, and sirens going by, it wasn't the easiest to sleep.

Our room was right next to the lobby that was full of people until late at night.. Kids running up and down the halls all night. Sink and floor in bathroom was cracked. Room was tiny for what I paid.noisy all night.

Expensive for where it is located.. Right on a very noisy street. Will not use this location again..

Nothing about the hotel itself but it would have been nice if there were more high end places to eat near by.

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.
