Enjoy one of the 93 guestrooms or suites at the Hyatt Place Des Moines Downtown during your family’s stay in Iowa’s top city. In-room amenities include one king or two queen beds, a sofa bed, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges and coffeemakers. Hotel suites also include microwaves, dining tables for four and an additional sink area. The hotel’s Odds & Ends program is also available for families who may have left an essential toiletry or must-have item at home. Guests can borrow, buy or enjoy the program’s amenities for free.
The hotel features an indoor pool and a 24-hour fitness center, though families will surely want to get off the property and explore the city. Local attractions near the hotel include the Iowa State Capitol Building and the Des Moines Art Center Downtown.
Before doing anything though, fuel up with the free a.m. Kitchen Skillet breakfast each morning. Additionally, the 24/7 gallery offers food and beverages around the clock. However, there is no onsite restaurant for lunch or dinner.
Additional hotel features include a business center, pet-friendly rooms (for $75 per pet) and onsite parking for just $15 per day. Check-in is at 3 p.m. and check-out is at noon.

Room change should have occurred immediately after being alerted. Instead they tried emailing offending guest. Lame. Didn’t even waste time asking for Jeffrey the manager after lackluster front desk response. Good location but Marriott one block away is a better choice for my sales team.
I don’t normally leave scathing negative reviews but this place was pretty poor. The couch cushions weren’t even in the couch and were so worn the stitching was coming apart at the seems. One of the bathrooms towels had what looked like an oil stain on it, as did my bed sheets. All pictures included.
It’s a great location close to lots of places downtown but otherwise this was really disappointing. Stay elsewhere
