Stayed here twice. Hotel is under renovation but didn't have any tangible impact on my stay. Functional, clean rooms. Heat can be tricky to control but it definitely won't be too cold. Only one treadmill, bike and elliptical in exercise room, but good equipment. Breakfast is a bit beyond basic and a good number of options, good seating.

We have stayed here before and enjoyed it. It was handy it had a lounge that served food and drinks. It is close to Wells Fargo Arena. This stay was not at all welcoming. We did not know they were doing renovations on the hotel. Did not know their lounge area was closed. Very small area for breakfast, especially when...

We stayed at this hotel because it was near a wedding we were attending. There was a large event at the stadium near by and we feel sure the price was more because of all the people attending the basketball games. We had to wait for our room to be ready which is understandable on a busy weekend. The hotel...

Lots of renovations going on. Water was turned off for two hours but was done at a time that would be less disruptive to convention-goers. Breakfast was very good with a good selection to choose from. Our room was clean and comfortable. There was a microwave and small fridge, heated pool and exercise room. Free wifi. It is walking distance...

Just spent the past weekend (9/9 - 9/11) at this location for an event hosted by a local club. I really enjoyed myself! The suite we stayed in was clean, comfortable and well taken care of. The bed was comfy! The shower was clean and the amenities that I used were just fine. The staff are what made this weekend...

Lots of renovation going on. No plugs for chargers. Lamp on desk and wall socket inoperable. Small but clean rooms. Non opening windows. Extremely small elevators. We could barely get a luggage cart and both of us in there. Breakfast is fair.

Staff was good for the little amount of time we saw them. Room small, towels shed and the window were very dirty. Had a room with view of capital but cause the windows were so dirty could barely see it. As for breakfast not sure, there was so many people and not enough space. People standing in line waiting for...

We stayed on the top floor (7th) and had a great view of the Iowa State Capitol from our room. My kids were amazed and just sat at the window and stared at the view. Room was great and the pool was very refreshing, however, pool area was very hot if you were not in the pool which made it...

Our family reserved a block of rooms for our annual Family Weekend. The hotel has a large meeting room on the second floor that we also rented. This turned out to be a great facility for the 22 of us. Even though the room didn't have kitchen facilities,we had plenty of room for snacks, games, video games, movies, and stacks...
