Newest first
6.0 Okay
Pros:As always...the breakfast!
Cons:Forced valet that did not park vehicle in a covered garage but rather on a side street during a snow storm for a $25/night charge. I was told all about the city selling parking lot to private investor who is building a parking garage but that is not my problem. If you don't have acceptable parking options don't charge me a premium to park. Inadequate parking options just aren't acceptable and we'll look for another place to stay next time.
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:not very friendly
8.2 Very good
Pros:location was good, room was clean breakfast, as always at an Embassy, was excellent, especially great for kids.
Cons:Valet parking at a very high (for the market price) was the only parking option. Room was warm and musty, didn't cool well.
7.7 Good
Pros:Greater location, rooms, and friendly staff.
Cons:The hotel bar and staff leave a lot to be desired!
8.0 Very good
Pros:Like most Embassy Suites, a very nice property, suites with plenty of room, great beds and bedding.
Cons:Very disappointed in a $10 daily charge for Wi-fi - even for Hilton Honors members (except the two highest levels). Considering other quality downtown Des Moines hotels priced similarly, but with free Wi-fi access, this is typically a difference-maker for us. Also annoying, if you miss the complimentary breakfast (finishes at 9 AM), you are charged $3 per cup of coffee -- again, unlike other similarly priced downtown Des Moines hotels. Not a deal-breaker, but still seems kind of ridiculous.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Complimentary drinks, snacks and great breakfast!
8.0 Very good
Pros:Great view, lovely space.
Cons:Cost: clearly had upped their rates because the bar exam was being offered in their building.
