My wife and I stayed here one night on our way to Yellowstone. The hotel appears brand new but apparently had recently undergone renovation. We had never stayed at a Hotel Renovo but decided on this one based on good Trip Advisor reviews. The lobby and rooms all have a modern decor. Check in was a little slow but the...

Stayed in a really beautiful suite while in town for a job interview - probably the nicest hotel I've ever been to. We got in late (after 1 am), so we were the last check-in that day, but the man at the front desk was very courteous and friendly.

This hotel is more what you might find downtown Des Moines, but we are lucky that this quaint hotel is in the suburbs just off of Interstate I-80/35. I've been here for drinks at the bar a couple of times and ordered an appetizer from the menu. It's a small menu, but the food was perfect for what we needed...

The Hotel Renovo was newly renovated, super clean and welcoming. The price and amenities were very comparable to a Holiday Inn Express, and the overall ambiance was definitely a step up! Breakfast looked really good but did not appear to be included. I was very pleased with the stay and the value. A great choice if you are near Des...

We have had 2 great experiences with this hotel. My mother and I stayed here in early July 2016 and my husband and I are currently staying in this hotel (late July 2016). Both times the rooms have been clean and beautiful. Love the decor. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We will certainly be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This major construction project will include expanding the size of the existing structure to create a 102 room urban farm inspired hotel that will include a full service restaurant that Heart of America's culinary team is currently developing. The hotel and its rooms will be designed with a minimalist approach, to give guests a clean and relaxing atmosphere perfect for unwinding after a long day. Hotel rooms will be furnished with lavish bedding and spa like amenities, featuring the Beekman Brother's signature line of goat's milk soap. The restaurant will serve its food in a large-scale breakfast space and an open concept bar in the lobby. The bar will include a soft seating area for guests to enjoy a variety of libations along with chef inspired cuisine. Relaxation does not end inside property, an expansive porch will feature comfortable seating outdoors for hotel guests to enjoy. Known for providing an alternative to cookie cutter hotels, Heart of America Group designers will create a space that is unique to the Hotel Renovo, yet welcoming to guests from all around the world. For business and event needs, the hotel offers two meeting rooms configured with state of the art A/V equipment and can be configured to accommodate as many as 115 people. Catering for meetings and events will be available through the hotel's restaurant. ... more   less
