By chance I stayed at the Staybridge in West Des Moines. I had not planned to stay in town but my event lasted longer than planned. I accessed the IHG app on my phone and asked for the closest hotel.
Staybridge was only three blocks away. I made the reservation thru the app. In the time it took me to drive there the desk clerk had my folio ready and gift pack. When inquiring about a place to have supper the clerk suggested the BOX CAR. Excellent suggestion for a pub with good food. Very nice room, quiet and clean. Breakfast had a very nice selection including fresh fruit,and the attendant was busy cleaning, stocking, or just assisting guests. [Less]
