Verified Reviews of Hampton Inn & Suites Des Moines Downtown

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Awesome Team. Great Experience."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
What a great overall experience with this hotel. McKenzie with the sales department was awesome in dealing with our party and accommodating our requests. Del at the check-in counter had a great sense of humor and made us feel extremely welcome! He even helped with our ugly sweater contest! I would highly recommend this hotel for a meeting or even just a getaway night to go have fun in downtown Des Moines!

15-Dec-2014 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Dec 12 to Sat Dec 13 2014 at a $104.00 group rate (10% discount).
"Curtains don't close in room."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The only complaint I have about the room is that the curtains wouldn't close and the sunlight woke me up very early. Everything else about the room was great, but for the price you would think that they could spend for curtains.

"Awesome! Beautiful! Convenient!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Hotel is five weeks old. Awesome place. Two block walk to Cubs game. Very secure. Hampton hit a home run with this place (no pun intended). Stay here. It's well worth the money.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"This is a great tool and I will highly recommend it to others. Loved getting quotes from all different hotels in the area. It not only saved me countless hours of blind calling, but it took out the guesswork of where hotels are and what they are offering. I loved being able to check out their websites before dealing directly with the manager at the hotel." D.O. - Hershey, PA
