    The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The hotel was beautiful as well as our view. We had a great experience. I loved the two room suits, it helped as our oldest son snores. :) I would very much recommend this establishment.

    My husband really enjoyed our overnight stay at the Des Moines' Embassy Suites! We were shuttled to and from the concert in the area and took advantage of the "happy hour" and the complimentary breakfast in the morning.

    Hotel is very nice and updated. Our room was clean and and furnishings in room were in great shape. Only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is the forced $23 charge for valet parking as there are no free self-parking options.
