I checked in relatively late on my recent visit. Check in was fine. I headed to the concierge lounge for a snack and beverage. The staff was in the process of closing down and were clearly annoyed that I was in their way. I ended up at a nearby fast food establishment. The television service was spotty at best. On...

My wife and I stayed for a three day weekend while in the Des Moines area. We chose the Marriott over other brands (or "lesser" Marriott properties) because of the higher quality and the pool area. This Marriott actually had a large pool/hot tub area that looked very nice. The pool and hot tub were disgusting. The hot tub in...

Dear Richard M, I'm very sorry that the cleanliness of our pool and hot-tub were not up to our high standards. Though they are monitored daily to assure water cleanliness; our hot-tub and pool are both in need of painting and resurfacing. It was kind of you to note the quality of our accommodations. We appreciate the feedback which highlights...

I have been staying here for 15 years....about 5 times a year. Clean, quiet, efficient, easy to access. Staff go out of their way to meet any special needs you may have. The only (small) thing that would make it better would be a restoration of the free coffee they used to put in the lobby in the morning. Otherwise,...

I am an Independent Contractor for Hospitality in the Southwest. I over see different chains, however the Marriott is not one of them. The best part of my stay was the bellman/shuttle driver Freddy!

Rated #4 in West Des Moines here on TripAdvisor led me to book this hotel for a business trip. I won't make the same mistake next time. While my room was clean, spacious and well-appointed, the bathroom upgrades stopped at the fancy Speakman showerhead. The bathtub was still the old-style very low-profile tub, and the toilet was the old, water-guzzling...

This property has a convenient location. It's the only Marriott that I have been charged for internet service.
