Featured Des Moines Hotels

Settle into our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Des Moines. Before you know it, the gleaming golden dome of the State Capitol building will guide you to Iowa's best historic attractions.

Stroll the banks of the Des Moines River, just minutes from our hotels in Des Moines, and take in the urban landscape of Iowa's capital city. Inside the gold-leaf dome of the State Capitol are exhibits of historical artifacts, including a collection of First Ladies' dolls. Guided capitol tours are always free. Visit the striking Des Moines Art Center, designed by Pei, Saarinen and Meier and set among the leafy trees and easy walking trails of Greenwood Park. Inside the museum are breathtaking paintings by O'Keeffe, Richter and other masters. The avant-garde, glass-and-granite State Historical Building provides a vivid architectural contrast and offers an interactive Iowa history lesson with exhibits about Native American culture, pioneer living and native wildlife.

Visit downtown Des Moines for the capital's trendiest shopping and dining. The free D-Line shuttle crisscrosses downtown, just minutes from our Des Moines hotels, passing boutique shops displaying everything from trendy felt hats to fine wines and pretty stationery. The historic redbrick buildings of the East Village sit between the State Capitol and the river. This neighborhood offers up locally sourced cafe dining and an eclectic collection of restaurants. Dine on oversized barbecue sandwiches, homemade Italian pasta, Thai noodles or sushi before returning to our hotels in Des Moines.

Stay at our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Des Moines to admire the contrast between the city's historic sites and its contemporary style-and get a healthy dose of Midwestern hospitality in the bargain. Visit in summer when carnival rides, cooking competitions and free concerts amuse thousands at the Iowa State Fair.
