Staying with an infant

We chose this hotel because we have an 11 month old daughter and wanted to put the pack and play in the other room to sleep. We were very happy with the room layout and the floor space. Plenty of room to put a pack and play. The breakfast was great. The hotel was very accommodating and friendly.

Dear - Thank you for your business. I am very happy that you and your family truly enjoyed our large two room suites that are so much more comfortable and accommodating than standard hotel rooms found at "regular" hotels. Sincerely, Skip Hammerman General Manager

very happy w/the hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
the room (actually 2 rooms) were large, clean, and very comfortable. the bed was very comfortable. there was a large flat screen tv in both rooms, as well as a small refrigerator, a microwave, a coffee-maker. the breakfast includes excellent, fresh omelettes (made to order) as well as a large assortment of other things. as with all embassy suite hotels, there is a two hour manager's reception in the early evening which includes free drinks (including non-alcoholic beverages). the hotel staff is friendly and helpful. they have a van that will take to to/from the airport, as well as local spots that are within a couple of miles. i have only good thinngs to say about the des moines embassy suites.

Our room was ready early, which was good since we got there early.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Our room was very big and had a great view. The staff was very helpful and nice. The only draw back was paying to park the car.

Overall I enjoyed this hotel and will stay here again

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: No free Internet
Overall the hotel and staff were great, we had a small problem in that the first room they tried to put me in had a broken door, three trips up and down the elevator and back to the front desk and they finally gave me a new room. The staff was great and for the money I was very satisfied.
