I was pleased as always with staying at HIX. There was a weird odor in the common areas/halls that I don't remember from previous stays, but the hotel was clean and room was comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kath59 Loved this beautiful new hotel!
We were visiting Des Moines to attend a weekend conference, and didn't make reservations far enough ahead of time to stay closer to the downtown area-but this turned out to be a great thing! This new Holiday Inn Express in Urbandale is beautiful-the staff were extremely friendly and helpful-and we absolutely loved the location. It's right off the highway, and only a quick 20 minute drive to downtown Des Moines (during weekend traffic). There was a good variety of restaurants nearby, and great views of country side off the back as this area isn't fully developed yet.
We stayed in a double queen suite with a pull-out bed in the couch-and for a pull-out it wasn't too bad to sleep on! The regular beds were really comfy also, and loved the extra touch of labeling the pillows in their cases as either 'firm' or 'soft'. Breakfast was absolutely fabulous-couldn't think of a thing I would have wanted that they didn't have-there was plenty of nice seating in the breakfast area and the staff kept the food area clean and well stocked.

2nd time at this hotel. Everything was great. The property feels new and there is a great selection of tv channels. The pool was warmer this time than last time, which was great.

Good hotel. Nice staff. Only a couple of issues that have been outstanding for the past 3 years that we have stayed here. But it wouldn't keep me from recommending this hotel.

Comfortable king size bed and spacious room with amenities. Doors are extremely heavy and thus difficult to open. Must be a tornado thing? Friendly and cooperative staff. Printer in business center was out of print cartridge .....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Myrna60 So convenient
This hotel is easy to find and return to if you explore Des Moines. The rooms were so nice and the beds very comfy. Breakfast was a little slow in refilling items due to the large crowd staying, but unless you are in a big hurry, you can enjoy the Great Room and eat at your leisure.

Everything was good. They were out of the cinnamon rolls which I always look greatly forward to and there were still 45 min for breakfast, a little disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Going to the Fair Great breakfast and good location
My daughter and I were in town for a family reunion. The location of this Holiday Inn Express was great, close to the highway so that we could jump in the car and be with other relatives. The staff was friendly and helpful, particularly Josh, about giving us directions and suggestions. We used the pool which was clean and just warm enough. Our only complaint was that the tub drained very slowly. However it did not impact our stay and we would visit again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Josh'sfamily Great hotel - FREEZING Pool/Hot Tub
If you are hoping to use the pool here, I would look elsewhere. It was so cold we were all unable to get in, and our kiddos and other guests were equally disappointed and frustrated by this. Otherwise, however, the property was nice and rooms were clean and comfortable.

We have stay at the hotel twice in the last month. The pool water is cold, very cold. The heater needs to be turned on all year around. We are not going to stay at this hotel in September because of this problem.

The room was nice and clean and looked fairly new. The staff were very friendly and pleasant. The breakfast choices, although plenty were provided, I would have liked to see a few more options, but definitely wasn't a major issue.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnR775 Bathroom amenities
We had a suite room, which was more than was needed. Apparently, the standard rooms were already booked. The suite room was very roomy and nice. One negative was the tub, also used for the shower, was very slippery. When using the shower, there should be an available bathmat or the tub should be provided with some adhesive backed treads.

This was our last stop before getting home to Oklahoma City. Our vacation this summer took us on a circuit through Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. We stayed in IHG brands along the way.
This location was absolutely THE BEST in every category! From the pleasant people at check in, to the courteous cleaning staff, to the delicious breakfast prepared the next morning... Everything was wonderful and friendly...
Many, many, many other establishments could learn the proper way to care for their guests from the staff of this Holliday Inn....
If they had six stars, I would give this place six without hesitation!!!
Thank you! A very satisfied customer...

Overall it was a very nice stay. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly, especially the gal who checked us in. We got back to the room in the early hours of the morning both nights and felt safe in the parking lot. Our only complaint would be that the bed was not very comfortable and a few times during the night we could hear the springs twang. Probably time for a new mattress in that room. Otherwise, everything was nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by C.L.W. Excellent Experience!
I would highly recommend this hotel. It was immaculate, up to date, and extremely well maintained. The staff was helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable! Jordan handled my reservations over the phone in an efficient, professional, friendly manner! His patience went above and beyond when there was a glitch (on my end) in sending my email confirmation, as well as in tolerating my multiple call backs to check, double check and recheck my reservation. He was the first staff member we saw upon arriving, and was very welcoming and helpful! I recommend him for a promotion!
