10.0 Excellent
Pros:I keep staying here and it's like my home base in Des Moines
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Friendly helpful staff ready to provide assistance and guidance. Found the location in close proximity to the the airport and interstate. Dining was not the best in the vicinity of the hotel (not the hotels fault) but found the hotel's restaurant especially the breakfast to be exceptional. The breakfast wait staff were among the best I've experienced at a hotel restaurant.
Cons:The suites could use an upgrade/redecoration.
