Downtown Des Moines Hotel Guide

As the proverb goes, “A well beaten path does not always make the right road.” Des Moines, Iowa, may not be one of the first cities that comes to mind when you think of vacation destinations, but perhaps that, too, is one of its greatest charms. Savor the authenticity of a place untrammeled by the many footfalls of tourism and seek the hidden gems within Iowa's largest city. Visit in August to listen to music and explore agricultural exhibits at the famous Iowa State Fair, or come any other time of year to explore local museums such as the Des Moines Art Center and wander the Great Des Moines Botanical Garden. Amidst the seemingly endless sea of cornfields is a city packed with farmers markets, culture, and political discourse to fascinate your senses. Check in to one of our downtown Des Moines hotels, such as the Hampton Inn & Suites Des Moines Downtown, and soak in all the flavors of this Midwestern jewel.

Where are the best places to eat in Des Moines?

Des Moines boasts a broad diversity of culinary options, from classic American burgers to BBQ to sushi. You'll even find some curious fusions, such as Asian-themed pizza or a Mexican-style pub. If you're just coming from a tour of the State Capitol, the nearby East Village is home to scores of beloved local eateries, including plenty of popular burger joints with creative creations. Cross the river into the downtown district to find more excellent options, from modern Italian fare to a German beer hall. Many of these options are quite close to the Des Lux Hotel; trust us, you'll be glad to have a nearby bed where you can descend into a food coma. If you're stumped, just order anything with bacon—it's a local obsession.

What is there to do in Des Moines at night?

When you're back from a busy day of exploring the local attractions, park your downtown Des Moines rentals and explore the city's nightlife scene on foot. See the Des Moines Symphony in action or catch a show at the magnificent Hoyt Sherman Place. If you'd rather get out and mingle, the Court District is packed with bars, breweries, and dance clubs, so take a stroll around the neighborhood and follow the strands of drifting music into bars with live bands or clubs where the syncopated pulse of bass is so strong it can be felt. Whether you're looking for a sports bar, a dive, or a brewery, there are dozens of options all within close range of each other. Hop between bars and rub elbows with the locals; while chatting with a fellow patron here and there, you’ll catch a glimpse of what it's like to be a resident of Des Moines.

Travel into the land of corn and see with your own eyes what it's like to live in the Midwest. Let Travelocity help you book reservations at the best Des Moines downtown hotels where you'll have convenient access to many of the city's attractions, both cultural and gastronomical.
