Like most Embassy Suites, a very nice property, suites with plenty of room, great beds and bedding.
Very disappointed in a $10 daily charge for Wi-fi - even for Hilton Honors members (except the two highest levels). Considering other quality downtown Des Moines hotels priced similarly, but with free Wi-fi access, this is typically a difference-maker for us. Also annoying, if you miss the complimentary breakfast (finishes at 9 AM), you are charged $3 per cup of coffee -- again, unlike other similarly priced downtown Des Moines hotels. Not a deal-breaker, but still seems kind of ridiculous.
Complimentary drinks, snacks and great breakfast!
Great view, lovely space.
Cost: clearly had upped their rates because the bar exam was being offered in their building.
I was on a business trip so the downtown location worked out well for me.
The location - on the river (I love water), our room had a view of the river and the distance between the hotel and Nolan Plaza - our day destination - only three blocks from each other - also hotel was easy to find
