Rated 3 out of 5 by Desmoinesvisitor It could have been better.
My associate and myself were in Des Moines for business. She chose a downtown hotel and I settled for Sheraton, primarily because it was an spg preferred hotel. The rooms were clean and general friendliness of staff were fine and it was pretty much like my usual experience with spg hotels, good. On the check out day, I was running late in a meeting. I requested a late check out for 3pm. My associate got that for her hotel. My hotel refused and asked me for $50 for an hour beyond the check out time. I realized that for things running smoothly spg or no spg, every place does a decent job with helping guests out. A hotel or for that matter a starwood preferred program should stand out by being able to deal with a unique problem that a guest can face. A lazy answer of "policy says that and this is what you have to pay" does not become Sheraton or any other hotel participating in preferred programs. Both herself, who is a lawyer and myself a physician, felt unaccommodated and ended up cutting our meeting short and stopping a client in his conversation, that "sorry my hotel is not helping me, I should probably have stayed somewhere better". So much Sheraton and so much for the spg program.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PrincessPeach Still fav hotel, however . . .
This hotel has been serving the same limited choices for room service years! There is a handful of reasonably priced ($15 or under) items that tend to be greasy sandwiches. I think should change the menu maybe quarterly on a rotating basis or simply change it. I wanted to order room service both nights I stayed recently but didn't due to the choices.
The tempeture in the room is not truly individually regulated; no matter how much I turn it down, the temperature still hovers around 70 degrees; for someone who likes to sleep cool, that doesn't work well.
I had left my curling iron at home; would be nice to have loaners available for things people might tend to forget. Also would be nice to have a refidgerator in the basic rooms especially when one is staying for more than one night.
Nevertheless, this is still my favorite hotel.
It is very comfortable and the environment is really nice. The inside is beautiful; you can stand outside your room and look down onto the entire lobby area from whatever floor you are on; has a nice waterfall and clear glass elevator. Unless there is a large conference going on, the elevator is very fast.
Also would be nice to have Bravo channel as a TV choice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ALP007 Frigid Rooms, Staff and Food
I stayed at this hotel for a large business conference. The rooms at the hotel were clean as were most the facilities, including our conference rooms. In addition, the front desk staff were very friendly and the shuttle team was fabulous :)
Unfortunately, that is about all that was done well during our stay. It was difficult to get guest rooms to comfortable temperatures (I had the thermostat set to 78 and still slept in a scarf and fleece jacket - there were many individuals with our group who also had the same challenge). The conference rooms we were in were kept at a chilly temperature as well. The staff that served our group lunch and dinners overall were unfriendly, slow to respond to requests, and carried themselves in a manner that suggested we were more of a bother than paying customers. In addition, the meat during two meals was served undercooked and many of the baked potatoes for dinner one night were not fully cooked either, hard in the center, and mine was black and starting to rot on one side.
Again, the building itself was nice and clean and the staff at the bar were all friendly and professional. However, the cons outweigh the pros and many from our group have recommended choosing a different location for our next conference.
