Great view, lovely space.

Cost: clearly had upped their rates because the bar exam was being offered in their building.

Clean rooms and friendly staff willing to assist when needed.

King suite was great for privacy. New hotel - only 7 months in business and very modern and clean. This is a good place to stay for an extended period of time - fully equipped kitchen.

ALOT of ants in the room that others were staying in. Hotel compensated guests ants. Staff unfamiliar with the area. Cold and hot water indicators on tub faucet were backward - very confusing. Breakfast hours limited on Sunday.

It's location by the river made for a beautiful walk at night. The room was large and lovely. The breakfast was great too.

The only negative was the view out of our window (construction). I would have preferred the river view on a higher floor.

Staff was helpful and friendly! The room was clean and comfortable. The mattress was quite hard but the down comforter and pillows made up for it. The restaurant had friendly bartenders and good drinks. Didn't try the food but saw what others near us were ordering and it looked yummy. Overall we had a great hotel stay and I would go here again. Great value also!

Halls were smelly, no fridge

Good location.

Bathroom floor was covered in hair when I checked in. Also got stuck with a handicap room, which was awkward.

Staff was very friendly, great location!

The room was a bit cramped. Got a king size bed and it monopolized the space.

Right downtown, within walking distance to many major attractions. The staff was very friendly. There was construction during my stay, but I hardly noticed it.

I arrived at the Des Moines Marriott at approximately 12:30PM on a Thursday. The room was not ready yet, as to be expected so we checked our bags and went out for lunch. While at lunch they called and let me know my room was ready which I found very nice. When we picked up our keys they informed us that there was a wrestling tournament of some kind happening and they asked that we wear a plastic wrist band after 5PM otherwise we would not be allowed to get to our room. This was ridiculous to me. They said it was because of the high amount of teenagers there due to the wrestling thing. This did nothing to curb the teens from running around the hotel while their parents got drunk in the hotel bar from the ice chests that they were hiding under their tables. Speaking of the bar, I recommend sticking to bottled beer. I tried having a rum and coke and a friend had a gin and tonic and they were the worst drinks we have ever had. They tasted liked like the liquor had been watered down or ma...

The Staff was friendly, They went out of their way to makes us feel welcome and at home. Room service was outstanding. The sheets. Oh my... the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. They took us to our outing and picked us up when it was over. I can't say enough for the service and the care. It is well located, close to everyting we needed to do. Just a fantastic place to stay. More than recommend it.

It is close to downtown. On the outside it looks like a murder den but my actual room was great (microwave and fridge). The shower was excellent

The lobby is very small and dark also a little scary. Super loud street noise not ideal for light sleepers. Sunday morning there was a cop running people's plates.

The manager seems like a nice guy trying to turn the motel around

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..

We liked that it was close to downtown but in a quiet area of town.

The door to our room needed to be adjusted, as it was harder to close.

We really liked the hotel and we will use it again when we go back to Des Moines.

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.
