I booked thru Expedia for cheaper rate. Was given a handicapped accessible room. Nice hotel except a disappointing trick. Not pleased. Service acceptable but not “warm”. Will rethink hotel on next trip to DSM

Check it was tough at this location. While deep desk attendant was certainly pleasant enough, she obviously didn’t read my special requests which included being far away from elevators, ice/venting. I’d ask for a quiet room. So it was so much to my surprise to get off the elevator and find the room she designed me directly opposite the elevator bank. Anyway, the rest of the hotel was good enough. Parking I didn’t realize was available at the hotel so I parked in a paid for parking lot a block away. Would I return to this OK location? Probably. Not my favorite of the Marriott branded chains however.

The guy working at the counter looked and acted like we didn’t belong in the swanky hotel. Yes I have tattoos doesn’t mean I can’t afford to stay there. Got to the room and the floor had a stained spot that looked like old blood. When we called we were told it was rust from an old chair and nothing they could do. Then we noticed a good chunk of the wallpaper was coming off. Cheap room with an overprice tag

My flight on Sunday was cancelled, so I had to find a hotel for the night. I chose a hotel close to where my daughter lives. I chose AC Hotel because they listed airport shuttle as an amenity. When I checked in I was told that the shuttle only runs in the afternoon. My flight was early morning so I was out of luck and had to make other arrangements. If there are exceptions to an amenity they should list them. I would have chosen to stay somewhere else, but instead I was stuck with the room and still had to arrange airport transportation.
