Comfy hotel close to Wells Fargo Arena

5 out of 5
Posted Jun 24, 2016
I thought this was a great hotel. Our room was clean and bed was comfy. Within walking distance to the Wells Fargo arena which is why I chose it. Restaurant on site was reasonable with good food. The only thing I could complain about was not having a refrigerator in the room. When we asked for one they were all out, so ask early if you want one! Overall, staff was friendly and I was happy with the valet parking! I would definitely stay again if I was going to the arena!

Nice hotel close to arena

We were in town for NCAA so it was nice to be downtown. It had a airport shuttle and shuttle to arena although it is close enough to walk to arena too if its a nice day. We had a king suite which had lots of space with kitchenette. Tv did not offer on demand movies. Workout facility was nice but small. Overall nice hotel and would stay again

Pros: Location, historic building.
Cons: Bathrooms, no fridge
Location: Everything, right downtown
Check in was smooth and the location was right downtown. The building was a cool historic structure. The room didn't have a fridge and the bathroom was smaller than most hotels. Also the closet was larger than necessary. Bed was nice and comfy and the staff was friendly. Overall it was a nice stay.

Elegance and Convienence All in One

Pros: The staff. They made us feel like we were royalty and took great care of our every need. When others were around you they made you their priority.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: It is in downtown DSM amidst all the restaurants, shopping and event centers.
My daughter and I were attending the JJ event. The staff was attentive and made you feel like family as soon as we arrived. Everything was clean, staff greeted you with smiles and answered any question you had. Food was amazing and service courteous. I'll stay here again for sure! We felt spoiled during our stay!

somewhat close to the Wells Fargo Arena

Pros: The food was good
Cons: Needs updated
Location: Was a busy area
Was expecting a restaurant type style but was in the bar area which I didn't like. I pulled back the covers to go to bed at midnight and noticed blood stain on the mattress pad so needless to say I myself was changing sheets at that time and for the price I paid for the room I wasn't expecting that either. Ive stayed in much better places.

Dear Anon - I am truly sorry that you had issues during your stay with us. obviously, this is not the sort of service that we normally deliver or that we are famous for. I hope that we can be of service to you again in the near future and be able to show you what we normally deliver.
