Location was great, perfect walking distance to Court Ave. The view from the King Suite was amazing! Room was very clean and contemporary. Complimentary breakfast was top notch and convenient. We definitely will be coming back to Des Moines and staying at this Hampton Inn & Suites again!

While the room was comfortable, clean and lovely, the staff was amazing, friendly and accommodating. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff. They made my stay enjoyable. They had free cold bottled water for me every day. They had really good suggestions of nearby places to try. And the complimentary breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The one downside was the coffee. Not good. But that's okay, they suggested a good local coffee place within walking distance. I will be back.

We enjoyed our stay here. We selected it because of how close it was to the El Bait Shop bar. At check in and check out we were given bottles of water. The rooms were very nice, updated, really comfortable beds. The breakfast was pretty standard, eggs, potatoes, sausage, waffles, yogurt, bakery items, oatmeal, and cereal. The people working there were friendly and informative.

Stayed for 3 days while visiting family. Rooms were clean. Location is excellent close to lots of bars and restaurants. Lady at desk upgraded me to a studio which was very nice. Bathroom and shower were pretty basic. Breakfast was good except for the paper/plastic disposable plates, cups and utensils! It would be nice if they have an espresso machine. Parking is an extra $15 a night although there are plenty of parking meters outside. I would recommend it

Nice modern hotel with free breakfast. The air conditioning was quiet, which was a huge improvement over a far pricier hotel the previous week in Chicago. The location is stellar, along the Des Moines Riverwalk, and within walking distance of the historic East Village, the AAA Iowa Cubs stadium and the downtown Farmer's Market on Saturday. Downside would be the $15/day parking fee.

This is a clean, quiet and safe location for whatever activity brings you to Des Moines. The hotel is walking distance to many restaurants, music venues, Iowa Cubs baseball stadium, science center and cultural attractions. Walking, running or biking along the riverfront is right across the street. Staff were friendly and efficient. Parking ramp is attached to hotel and allows parking on the same floor as your room.

bathroom sink would not drain. apparently someone came while we were out. the next morning water had backed up and filled our sink. the sewer smell was atrocious. we could not get out fast enough.

Location right downtown makes it convenient, but you will need to pay for parking. Room accommodated three people easily, but was right next to the floor's exit to the parking garage and across the hall from housekeeping, so it wouldn't be a good room if you are a light sleeper. Carpet was showing wear and there were only three drawers so storage was minimal.

Disappointing experience in an over priced hotel. Save your money and go to any other chain hotel in the area. The staff was not particularly helpful or caring. The rooms are very average, we would have expected better amenities for $180 per night. We were given a handicapped room which we did not need or request and our keys were not programmed. This all meant several trips to the front desk. We were tired and had hoped to simply get our keys and rest in the room. Parking is not free, th... Read more

I tried calling this hotel directly to book a room. It rang and rang but no one answered. I tried this about 4 times. On the fifth time, there was an answer but only static. They must have been having phone issues so I booked through trip advisor.

We'll just call this the SWANKY Hampton! Property is only two years old and right on the river front. Elegantly decorated and the staff is very nice. The only downside is that they charge $15 / day for parking - unlike most Hamptons. However, there is metered street parking that can save you some money. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance and in a safe neighborhood!

We got a King Suite, which I highly recommend - useful room layout and a floor entry shower (so much larger and easier to use than the tub-based showers). Everything was well thought-out, down to the nightlight. What we really loved, though, was that access to the parking garage ($15 per night) could be reached from the floor we stayed on. Our car was never more than 50 feet from the doorway to our floor! The location is excellent, and the help was very polite. Our only complaint was the co... Read more

Besides the free water that they provide you, their staff goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms were very clean. The only issue I had was that the balcony was infested with spiders, but other than that, it was great. Hotel could use more identifying marks so that you see it when you get there. However, soooo worth the stay!! Right on the river and 1-2 blocks from trendy restaurants and bars.

We had one of the balcony rooms overlooking the river. A balcony is a nice amenity, and these are spacious and have a nice view of the Des Moines River with the beautiful capitol building in the distance. The balconies are not furnished, however, so if you want to sit out and enjoy the view on a summer night, you'll need to schlep the desk chair out there. And take some bug spray, because you can't turn off the lights on the balcony which means after dark they are swarmed with insects. Speaking... Read more

This is a perfect Hotel for attending a downtown business meeting. It is easy to get to/from the Airport. There are great bars and restaurants close by. The Hotel and Room were very clean, new, decorated nicely. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet.

I booked this stay without knowing exactly where it was located, because I just needed something "close to the Civic Center." And it was. Not only close to the Civic Center, but very close to the farmers market and the river, and walking distance to the free downtown bus. I will definitely use this hotel again, especially if I can get the balcony over looking the river. The enclosed garage is very conveniently located. The breakfast is adequate, and the staff is friendly.

Though I've been to tons of Hilton, HIlton Garden, & Embassy Suites, this was my first Hampton Inn experience. Glad we stay at Hampton Inn & Suites Des Moines Downtown. The hotel is located in the downtown area. Only thing I didn't like was the $16/to park in their garage. Since they weren't able to upgrade my room, I was able to get the parking comped. Checkin was quick, easy and friendly. The who checked us in gave us a bag of drinks/treats for being a Hilton Gold member. I liked the secur... Read more

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The staff was fabulous. The room was excellent and so clean. The beds and pillows were superior. Don't be fooled by the drive thru the city and all the construction. It couldn't have been better. We have been 8000 mikes in hotels and travels - this is the best yet. Will definitely return and recommend. Beautiful sky line from our room and of the city.

For short stays, this is totally okay. My room had a microwave as well as fridge. Quiet enough. Friendly service. But the breakfast spread leaves something to be desired. Overall, a decent place to stay for a conference, that has good amenities, locating right on the river (good jogging trails).

I have stayed here several times as my company is based in Des Moines. This is one of my favorite places to stay anywhere. The staff is fantastic. The location is great, you can walk to Court Ave where all the restaurants are. The area is completely safe. The fitness room is nice. No complaints about this hotel at all.

I love a king room high up with a river view. Had a 4th floor comfortable and spacious room/suite, and very helpful front desk. Ask the Manager if something's not yet right - they'll make it so! Easy stroll downtown to shop, eat, or drink. Try the local Congruence IPA.

I was given a corner suite with kitchenette. I loved the accommodations. I also found the staff to be friendly and really helpful with advice. The hotel is located on a picturesque river walk and a couple of blocks to downtown bars and restaurants. I found it safe at night to walk around at night. You will not go wrong with the Hampton Inn on SW Water st. I was able to walk to many attractions as well as a conference at a different hotel. The only minor issue was that they have no shuttle v...

Great staff, nice hotel, good breakfast, great location. Pool smaller but great shallow depth for kids. No deeper than 4ft 5in. Adjustable temp in rooms was nice. River side worth the extra money. Close to downtown.

Great place to stay. Great location with walking access to the downtown area. Be prepared to pay $15.00 per day for parking if you don't want to meter park on the street. The streets are often full booked so the best alternative was in the hotels parking structure.

Three teens and I stayed two nights in this new hotel. Room was spotless and quiet, front desk staff was friendly and helpful, complimentary breakfast was typical for a Hampton, common areas were clean and modern. We had planned to use the pool but never got around to it. It looked clean, though, as did the workout facility. Business center was functional and had a printer, which is nice. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. We had a room (#518) overlooking the river and could se... Read more

Stayed for two nights whilst visiting Des Moines. Hotel clearly quite new - very modern and clean. You have to pay $15 for parking each night, but the parking is connected directly to the hotel which is good. Room was a really good size, very quiet and very comfortable bed - bathroom also clean and well equipped. Front desk staff very helpful and the breakfast buffet in the morning very good and extensive. Gym was well equipped and the pool/hot tub were very welcome after a long drive! Woul... Read more

The price is a bit steep to be honest, but the location was very nice. There is enough to do right in the area. I stayed on a Friday and left the next day and checking out and leaving Des Moines from the hotel was very easy. Overall it was a nice hotel.

I stayed here for a weekend of bar hopping downtown with some friends. It is a great location with easy access to the downtown area. Friendly staff and clean rooms made for a pleasant stay. It was a bit pricey, but still beats having to get a cab ride home. Would recommend to a friend and stay again!

This hotel was very clean, my room smelled amazing! Parking is in an attached garage and was $15. I would prefer if that was included in the rate or discounted as a guest. Complimentary Breakfast was typical for Hampton Inn, my only complaint is it was a bit crowded. Many guests stood/sat around after their meal which didn't allow for others to be seated. The facility was very clean and accommodating for any guest. Pool, basketball court in a small courtyard. Location was great for those looki... Read more

Relatively new hotel on the edge of downtown and convenient to many amenities in Des Moines. Quiet and clean double room overlooking the river with comfortable beds. Great to get the complimentary breakfast and that's part of the reason I'm a Hilton Honors member. You know what you're getting. Downside to the two-night stay was not being told about the free parking available on what was our second night. Although it's understandable about paying for the parking our first night, not hearing abo... Read more
