The Best Hotel Around Des Moines: I live in the metro area and as far as hotels go this hotel is the best around. The indoor pools are unmatched in the area. My children loved the pools and the arcades. We ordered pizza from the hotel and it was delivered fast and tasted great. I don't know why anyone wouldn't love this place. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. The service was great and the kids didn't want to leave. It will be our place to get away in the winter time.
