When you walk into the lobby and see all the wood and antiques, you know you are not in a chain box hotel! It's convenient to downtown, quiet and very comfortable. This is an old hotel with lots of history, but is in great shape and a fun experience.
Staff was pleasant. The room was nice and quiet. It was great for a low budget hotel. The hotel was completely booked and yet we did not hear anything from the other rooms. Would definitely stay again. We were going to a conference in downtown Des Moines. It was an easy 10 minute drive from downtown - and half the cost of staying in a downtown hotel.

will stay here everytime we're in town.
