Rated 4 out of 5 by FrequentTraveler13 GOOD IOWA SPG HOTEL
This is a cozy little Midwestern property. You need to have a car here otherwise you will be stuck here. Iowa has its own charm so does this hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly. If for whatever reason you are in the Hawkeye State check this hotel out.

I stay in a lot of hotels and the facilities were pretty good considering the area. What really made this a stand out for me was simply the people.
The staff made me feel so welcome from the front desk to the restaurant, every need was met with follow up.

The Sheraton West DesMoines is a beautiful Hotel, with an excellent staff, and very nice rooms. The only two things I missed in my room were a small refrigerator, and a ceiling fan in the bathroom. Thank you for accepting cash for my room and deposit!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Oppie12 This hotel requires updating
Hotel is outdated and in need of renovation. Not worthy of the Sheraton-brand name. Service-wise, I would think that house-keeping has a standard list of items that need to be re-freshed/re-filled in the room on a daily basis. This was not the case.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paul5345 Nice
Very comfortable rooms; plenty of space; very good breakfast. Wifi worked great.
Only comments otherwise was two elevators for a hotel this size led to waiting.
Also the 'club' on the club level had very limited access compared to other Sheratons.

My wife, son and I stayed 10 times at the Sheraton West DesMoines over the past 6 months. We were very happy with the atmosphere, comfort, food and level of service that we received during every stay without exception. Our dogs loved the hotel too!

The renovation has made the hotel much nicer. The food was good and prices reasonable. The room was nice and clean but the hallway area needed better cleaning and upkeep. Food trays were left in the hallway for 2 days, until I called the desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pmsia Nice place to stay
A nice place to stay. However it was the noisiest place I have ever stayed. One could hear people walking and talking in the halls and the waterfall was a bit noisy and we were at the far end of the building.
Movie prices were outrageous.

We stayed on a Sunday night. It was amazing! We practically had the hotel to ourselves. The bar served us dinner. We were upgraded to a larger room. Had a lovely breakfast in the Club room. We love staying at the West Des Moines Sheraton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dino2013 Great stay when in Des Moines
My wife, son and I stayed at the Sheraton West Des Moines when in town for the NCAA wrestling championship. Great location, just 20 minutes to Wells Fargo Arena. Pleasant, knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend when you are in Des Moines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jan66 Lovely stay
We enjoyed ourselves very much. As usual the staff was great. We used the gym and pool and it was very nice. The only thing was the water pressure in the shower was kind of pitiful. Other than that it was great and we enjoyed our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A1B2 Wonderful stay at this hotel
We had a wonderful time during our stay with the anniversary brunch at your hotel - delicious! The room was clean and inviting. I was impressed that you even provided a small bath scrungy to use with the gel. Thanks for that.

My only complaint: your website says free shuttle service. However, it is unavailable before 7AM due to an exclusivity agreement with the airlines. I wish I would have know that beforehand. You should clarify in your website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EdinaB Good pet policy
It is difficult to find a quality hotel that will allow pets. We were pleased with the pets policy, taking a deposit against damage or soilage, rather than charging a fee regardless of whether or not the pet caused any harm.

The hotel is in need of repair. I stay here several times a year and each room smells, the carpet is dirty. I was not asked at the time of check in if I wanted to participate in the 'green' program. Very disapointing stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bootsie96 Was told breakfast was included
When we booked our stay we were told breakfast was included. When we got down to the breakfast buffet they sat us down and we sat down, started eating. Then they told us we had to pay. Hotel is very nice. No hot tub though.

I went to this hotel with my husband and two teen boys. The room with two double beds was plenty big enough for us and very comfortable. My husband and I enjoyed the in-room coffee maker and complimentary Starbucks coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gomer I shall return
Was very pleased with my first stay at the Sheridan, it was clean, quiet and the staff was great. Only downfall I could note was being charged for in room internet. The food was great and reasonably priced. I shall return.

The evening meal room service was very good. The staff was very helpful. We ate breakfast in the hotel and the price was in the ballpark of local restuarants. The only down side was the pool did not have a hot tub/spa.

We really like the Sheraton, West Des Moines. The hotel has a good location. Staff is always very accommodating. Room is always clean and comfortable. And, the Waterfalls Bar and Restaurant has just what we like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BBMM Great for the price
I wasnt sure what to expect because I thought the cost of the room was very reasonable especially for a weekend rate. The hotel was very nice, clean, nice room, nice outside pool area to sit and a great location.

The hotel needs upgrades. Hallway carpet needed replaced. The carpet in my room was torn and dirty. For the prices charged, the rooms should be in much better condition.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gail4 Hotel was old and outdated
Unable to obtain a double room. When opening the sofa bed, it was gross. The sheets were dirty and crumbs all over. The room had a bad odor and I had to buy air freshener to mask what ever it was.

The reservation clerk who handled my call when I reserved my room went into great lengths to make sure I got the best possible rate. She saved me over $50! by using my AARP card.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sparkles12 Fab hotel with computer glitches
Love the hotel!! We ate dinner in the diningroom and I was charged someone elses bill--$10.00 more than mine. AND the COMPUTER wouldn't let them correct it. Night person was rude and not helpful.

The facility exceeded my expectations. The room was very comfortable and access to the Club Lounge was an unexpected bonus. I will definitely stay at this facility on my next trip to the area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ester This hotel has a wonderful breakfast!
The breakfast was fabulous, though do request an earlier set up prior if you need breakfast for a sports team as the weekends are set up at 7:00 am, which doesn't always work for early games.
