I expected more from Sheraton. Musty smell in the hallways, with stained, loose carpet. Only 2 elevators that took FOREVER. We did get a nice workout using the stairs during our 2-day stay :-) Room was okay, except the heater didn't work and maintenance couldn't do anything about it. Only stay on the 3rd floor if you enjoy the roof-top, HVAC view. We've stayed in worse, but expected more from Sheraton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jamsi Achieved our expectations
We had stayed there before. We love the height, the openness. Every time I made
reservations, the person at the hotel, not the national reservation center, was very concise, pleasant and positive. Check-in was quick and easy. There was plenty of parking (even on weekends when the hotel seems full) and the rooms were large, clean
and in repair. We really like this hotel.

The hotel, rooms and staff are great. My only complaint was the pool. Although indoors the pool was not heated and was very cold so was not really useable.

In this day and age, how could you not offer free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel - especially in your room? This is the reason why when I come back to Des Moines, I will NOT be staying at this location again.

Had a great stay at the Sheraton West Des Moines. John the Bellman drove us to our dinner reservations, he was kind, professional, and most of all pleasant, and a lot of fun. I wish more Bellman at more hotels were like John. Zach at the Front Desk, was a pleasure to deal with also. It was a great stay, will stay with you folks again when in town. The only thing I would maybe change is that breakfast be included with all rooms. Several other hotels of your caliber in the DSM area offer full hot breakfasts included in the room price for all rooms. All in all though a fantastic stay!

The room was set up in such a way that made getting ready for the day easy and efficient. The bed was very comfortable.
I loved the bathtub (deep and long). I love to soak to relax.

Hotel was not anything special, price compared to other places that we have stayed was too high plus no complimentary breakfast. Check out was a nightmare took nearly an hour.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brock29 Bad check-in experience
I booked a room on club floor for 8-14. Needed another room and just booked a regular room. Upon check in I asked if the other room could be upgraded and was told they don't upgrade gold members! Got the key for our room on club floor. Oops! Someone in that room! Went back to get another room and wasn't offered any points back for the whole strange mix up. In the a.m. I was told we would get some points back haven't seen them yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tcnevis Nice overall. Club lounge OK.
Everything was fine but when ordering a Zinfandel in the club lounge I was given a White Zinfandel. Not the same thing but she said she had already poured it, so... not the best service in the Club Lounge.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rob2865 This hotel shows promise
Overall, the hotel and amenities were appropriate for business travel. Convenient to West Des Moines businesses, easy to get to, close to large number of restaurants. Food in the hotel is good, and reasonably priced. Bar has a good selection of alcohol, but is limited to bottled beer only. The bar seating area is crowded without good sight lines. For a business class hotel, I would expect WIFI to be provided free, but it is not, and it is certainly more expensive than I have come to expect. Breakfast buffet was good, with a decent selection and made-to order items.

Had to dicker with desk to obtain gold level upgrade. I'M Lifetime gold with long history of staying at this hotel. Ended up paying an addl $30 nite, another $150, to have upgraded room and Club amenities. Used to get this upgrade for no extra charge. The Club is open for brief periods only AM and early evening for nightly "hors d oueveres," Frid nite was cheese and crackers and some grapes. Didn't use other nites. Breakfast on par with most "free breakfast " at cheaper hotels. Lovely Club room, attendants excellent. 2 room "suite" is actually a small living room area, pull out couch, with door to large king size bed area BUT the bathroom is in bedroom which means a lot of door shutting, turning on lights etc. disturbing the king bed occupants. I would not pay for this "upgrade" again. Great locale, free parking/ airport shuttle, terrific driver took a bit of the sting out of what I paid in money and points. Used to be that gold level really meant something. Not any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChinaTourist14 Helpful front desk attendants
Checked in late Sunday, room wasn't what
had been described when I made reservation. The personnel at the front desk promptly found us a better room, met us at the new room with a set of keys. I appreciated the willingness to satisfy, and do so promptly. Then same gentleman gave me a great recommendation for a local restaurant. Well done on all counts!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CRJCRJ This hotel was atypical of other Sheraton Hotels
Facilities did not meet our expectations. Room needed to be updated. Carpet was loose and coming off the floor. Bathroom was dated, tub was old and needed to be replaced.
Coffee in room was great - Starbucks. AC outlets were plentiful. Bed was comfy. Buffet breakfast had a great variety and food was good.

Wife & I arrived early afternoon & checked in for both our room & room for daughter who was arriving later. Rooms 703 & 706. When daughter arrived at 2 am, she was told there were no rooms available. Your staff wanted to send her 30 mins away to another property. After lengthy delay, they finally got their room. Not handled well!

Rated 2 out of 5 by P0618 Hotel is very dirty
A renovation is needed. Carpet stains all over, in room, in hallway, etc.
Room had a sick sweet smell, like fermented peaches. Not at all pleasant.
Bed was rock hard, and shower clogged up every day.
Staff was pleasant.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Freddy40 Average hotel
Matthew (Manager) was not responsive to my needs. He would not acknowledge me when I requested assistance. Additional charges were added to my credit card for food by the restaurant and drinks at the bar. It was eventually resolved. Kids were knocking on doors, playing on the elevators and running throughout the hotel during late night hours. I had to stay awake to monitor our athletes rooms until 2:00 am to prevent the group kids from waking them. I requested assistance to stop the activity and did not receive until 2 nights before my departure. There were not enough towels available. I don't think that the hotel was prepared for the large number of guest. I do not plan to return to this city and will not recommend the use of the Sheraton for large groups. I would like to say that the housekeepers were very helpful, courteous and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable.

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.

This is my favorite hotel to stay at when working in the Des Moines area. Always clean and comfortable with a friendly staff who go the extra mile for customers. Their are lots of amenities and the hotel frequently updates the property to make your stay even better. Great location for reaching all of my clients, and located near several major highways.
