Rated 1 out of 5 by PatDR This hotel is the worst ever
We stayed at this hotel for one week. The room was extremely dark and uncomfortable. For two consecutive days the room was not even cleaned! Do not stay at this hotel.

This hotel is in a great location for the many activities in the Des Moins area.
The rooms however, do need some updating, especially the bathrooms. Low water pressure in the shower and the decor is definitely from the 80's.
Comfortable beds but the bedding is unusually loud (makes noise every time you move).
All of these are minor issues for a great hotel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Testing515 Dissapointed
I have stayed here before and I have to say this was totally unexpected. Tub backed up and not cleaned after fixed; needed toilet paper and had to call twice and go to the desk for it (took a total of 2 hours); was booked on shuttle to airport and when I arrived at desk was informed that there was no shuttle scheduled so I had to pay for a cab. Not good.

I would review the facilities overall as a 4 out of 5. My only issue was that the noise from the lobby atrium was substantial until midnight and kept me awake. I was not rested the next day, even though the room, bed, cleanliness, etc. met my expectations. The AC could have blocked the noise, but I was not able to it to the right temperature. Too cold.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KayB2014 Older hotel needs help. Not great for the price.
First, the positives: Staff very friendly - everyone we had contact with from the front desk to the janitor in the hall. The breakfast buffet was great - the price was reasonable and the food was excellent and the staff took great care of our family when in the restaurant area. The room was very clean. Bed comfortable. Starbucks coffee/Tazo tea in room was nice. Negatives: The room was really dark, even during the day. Lighting was not good. Internet was SLOW and cost $10. When a second device was connected we were charged another $10. The front desk nicely took off the charge, but it was annoying. Don't try to purchase an in room movie. It took 5 phone calls and a trip from the "technology engineer" who unplugged our TV and plugged it back in, to finally get it working. Then it started in the middle. And it cost $19. 2 more phone calls. Finally got to see the movie. Pool okay - but no hot tub. Carpet in room was very worn and threadbare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zeek88 Nice Weekend Get-Away
Very nice accommodations, room was updated, very clean, and neat with several amenities included in the room. A GFI outlet in the bath area was not working, I called staff services and a maintenance man replaced it within minutes of notification. Sunday breakfast buffet was excellent too...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rockinbuck Nice stay for conference
Nice facility for a 1.5 day conference. Meeting rooms and vendor area were nice. As for the room, I did not spend a lot of time there but felt comfortable and secure and was nicely decorated. Bed was way to soft for my taste.
The only downside was that the lounge closed at a specific time regardless of the fact that it was full of paying customers.

We had a great experience during our stay ,the staff was more than helpful. We had breakfast 2 of the mornings we stayed there and Emily was there both days and always had a smile on her face and was always making sure we had what we needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brian16 Great stay for family or convention
This is the second time I have stayed at the Sheraton West Des Moines and it is a great place to stay from rooms to staff. They are very responsive to your needs and help in any way possible. I have been so satisfied I do not even look around for another hotel. It is located close to dining, shopping, and easily accessible to the interstate.

Conservation Districts of Iowa held the annual conference at the West Des Moines Sheraton the first week of September 2013. All the meeting facilities with screens, electronics and audio were very well provided with staff assistanct as needed. Meals were delicious, attractively presented and served with great speed. Thank you for a great stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Austonian Convenient Hotel in Des Moines
Nice Sheraton property conveniently located just off I-35 for those passing through town. For me, the hotel was a little far from downtown, but the rate and room availability make this hotel a top choice for my trip. Rooms were clean and modern—what you would expect from a Sheraton property. Free parking was a plus. I recommend this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BankerLady13 Staff was extremely helpful!
The guys at the desk were so helpful by giving me directions to places in the area. They didn't make me feel rushed and they looked up to speak to me. (So often we see only the tops of heads at some hotels.) As an extra bonus, they supplied us with ice scrapers as we left to get in our snow/ice covered cars during the recent spring storm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BPDOC Great Customer Service
I stayed here for 15 nights in the month of April. This is a very clean hotel with great customer service. The room was nice, I was able to get my dry cleaning done through the hotel and the fitness center is very nice. However... my room never seemed to cool down - it was warm. Also, there is no hot tub. There is no continental breakfast

Our room was located in a corner. The room was hot the whole night even though the thermostat was on 60. We did not have an exhaust in the bathroom. The room was very small. The rate was expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jamin34 Quick Getaway
My wife and I wanted a quick one-night getaway. I booked using the SPG iPhone app. Process was very easy. Staff was helpful. They offered the expected SPG perks and added bonus access to the club room breakfast. Room was clean and comfortable. I particularly liked the extra power outlets available on the sides of the bed side tables.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EmmaJ Disappointed this trip...
I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years. It is the only SPG hotel in the area, and generally I have received good service. This weekend (especially Friday night) it seemed that there was only one gentleman working. I am unsure what I will do on my next trip to Des Moines, but this visit was less than fantastic.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jldolp No free breakfast OR free WIFI
No free breakfast like they told us. Would have liked to use WIFI but we would have been charged $10 so we went to have breakfast at Perkins and used their FREE WIFI. The big water bottle was deceiving because they had a FREE one there but the big one had the same tag and in little print they had $4 on big bottle.
NO HOT TUB :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by Randall Great customer service and hotel
I was in Des Moines for work this hotel is close by the office. At first I only had two days booked of the three that I needed because that last night was booked. Matt went out of his way to help make sure I had a room that last night. The customer service from the staff in general was welcoming. Would stay here again for sure!

Rooms are clean and beds are great. The staff where ever the department are outstanding. Brian does and excellent job with the food for large groups and the front desk always recognizes us even when it been 4 month since the last time we were there. They are all just down right nice people. Thank you for a great stay. Marion

We stayed at this hotel with our sons hockey team. The staff was very nice, other than one guy who was not having the boys play whatsoever. The room overall was nice. Our room the tv didn't work, but we were ok with that. When we made our reservations it said there was a fridge and microwave in our room, which there wasn't.

This was our first time staying at this hotel. It exceeded our expectations. The staff was wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice. It is clean. The breakfast buffet is good and the waitresses are very friendly. It is convenient to everything. We will definitely stay there next time we go to Des Moines.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DW21 Room Review
It was a cold night outside; very windy and below zero wind chills. The windows in the room were very drafty; you could see the curtains moving. Had to crank the heat to 78+ just to keep warm. The room was clean. I would recommed the hotel, but would caution against a room on the north side if it is cold outside.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MKT64 Needs help
I asked to be as close to the elevator and instead was as far from elevator. Check in was awful with one girl that moved very slow took 40 minutes. Could smell sewer smell in lobby and in our room. Was supposed to receive a welcome gift upon arrival which I never got. Will not stay again. Staff very unfriendly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KirsteenS Not ideal for a working visit
It as a surprise that the ethernet outlets did not work in the rooms.
I was able to work at a table in the bar, but this was distracting and also not suitable for confidential work.
The number of children attending for a softball tournament also made the hotel noisy and the pool/fitness center unavailable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ruth38 Not up to the Sheraton brand
House-keeping was not timely or well-done (one day skipped all together, even though I had left the room). Shuttle van service hours not conducive to early flights (I had a 6:15am flight; had to take a taxi from the hotel).
Fitness center is excellent! The man who drove the shuttle van was nice and helpful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MattChicago August stay
This is a decent hotel in a good location. Staff is friendly but I need to call after every single stay as room service continues to forgot to drop off the Go Green Choice card for one or more nights each time. At least one, if not two calls are required as phone calls are not returned by hotel staff.
