I stayed with my two daughters during a dance competition. Check in was a little slow, but the staff was courteous. The room was good. Comfortable beds, different kinds of pillows. Nice bathroom. The rooms were dark, even with all of the lights on, which made getting ready a little more trouble. We had a balcony overlooking the pool which...

It was our pleasure to host Midwest Starz dance competition this past weekend, over 400 dance routines over two days, with a whole lots of young dancers. I apologize that some were noisy, our staff responded as we were able. Our roofer repaired the small leak in our Ballroom this past Monday which had never leaked before, but as you...

The Holiday Inn Des Moines - Airport/Conf Center is a decent hotel to spend your resting hours. Less than a minute from the airport, it is reasonably up to date. The staff are very friendly and helpful for what ever you need. An onsite eatery is open early morning to late night.

Wish they still had a bar but it's a great place to stay. If you need help with anything ask Mikkah. She's great.The facility is wonderful for a family get together and/or a party. I'm very particular about cleanliness and they pass the test.

Attended American Legion Conference with my husband for a night. The hotel was easy to locate; within perfect distance to shopping and the Cheesecake Factory. The hotel has a small Cafe on site with a decent variety and the breakfast food was very good. A Fitness room is always a must and I will say the hotels room was awesome...

Than you very much for your kind comments and please know that we thank your family for their service to our country. We understand that when one serves in the uniform, everyone in their family sacrifices as well. The American Legion is a valued group to our hotel staff, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay!

It is much cheaper to fly out of Des Moines v CID. Staying at the DM a Holiday Inn, breakfast, 24 hr. shuttle, and free parking is great!Wake up call exactly on time. Food at the in-house grill is above average!

Thanks for your comments, I agree, staying at our hotel prior to a flight is a great kickoff to a successful trip. Located directly across the street from the airport, free 24 hour shuttle, park and fly rates all make choosing us a winning idea! Thanks again and hope you had a great trip!

I felt like Kevin McCallister in Home alone 2. When I checked into the hotel after a long day of work and driving, I was greeted by a wonderful staff. Mikkah who checked me in informed me that they had upgraded me to a suite. That's nice I thought, but I don't need a suite. It was trmendous. I asked...

I don't want to sound ungrateful. This hotel basically saved our lives, when our Thanksgiving flight into Des Moines was REALLY delayed and we didn't get into Iowa until after 2 am on Thursday. After a never-ending day of travel stress, they had a room and they put us in it. We were thrilled to have a bed and a...

We were there for a week long dog show and the staff was the best. Each and everyone of them and all week long. They were very efficient.

We stayed here because we were attending a conference being held at the hotel- it was convenient to stay at the hotel instead of commute back and forth across town to our home. Our room was ok.
