we have stayed at the Des Moines Marriott several times over the past five years. The entrance/foyer is spectacular, the personnel are very friendly and helpful ALWAYS and the rooms are beautiful, extremely clean, and quiet. The BED is incredible! I actually FORGOT I was not sleeping in my own bed! We have also enjoyed the work out area (water is available and occasionally fresh fruit is available there as well - free of charge) - which is clean, well-maintained with state of the art treadmills and ellyptical trainers. The pool is also very very nice. The only complaint? We do NOT use the valet parking becasue it is extremely overpriced (park on the street for free on the weekends) - and there is not a lot of food choices in the area on the weekends - especially later the day. The hotel food is pricey and there is no complimentary breakfast. Aside from these minor issues, we LOVE this place. WE were able to walk to church (two blocks away) and to the Saturday Farmer's market (about four blocks). It was a VERY relaxing place to stay!
