Worried mom's new home away from home
Outstanding. My daughter and I were touring Drake University for her enrollment in the fall. This hotel will now be my home away from home while she is attending the school. The grounds are well maintained, the breakfast is outstanding, the gym is all that I could ask for and the room was all that I needed.

Overall a great place to stay!!
The hotel was amazing and the service was phenomenal! The only crappy thing was the breakfast. The sandwiches were hard and not much variety for the price you pay for staying.

Excellent stay
Clean, comfortable room. Easy check-in, check-out. Extensive breakfast selections. Nice outdoor seating area when weather permits. Well located for the arts — across the street from Drake’s Anderson Gallery and a few minutes drive from Des Moines Art Center (don’t miss that!). Friendly, helpful staff who initiated communication throughout the stay. High on my list of places to stay while traveling in the U.S.
