Featured Des Moines Hotels

Book a stay at our Holiday Inn® Des Moines hotels and discover the charm of Iowa's capital city. Learn about the state's history on a tour of the domed State Capitol, then dine on steaks, sushi or Thai at Des Moines' hip East Village restaurants.

Our Des Moines hotels put you in the center of the capital's best attractions. World-renowned architects Pei, Saarinen and Meier collaborated to design the Des Moines Art Center, a gem of a museum housing masterworks by Matisse, O'Keeffe, Rothko and Richter. The contemporary architecture of Des Moines' State Historical Building is no less striking. Behind its granite and glass walls lie interactive exhibits on Iowa's Native American culture, pioneer prairie life and the rise and fall of the woolly mammoth. Our hotels in Des Moines are also near the impressive gold-leaf dome of the Iowa State Capitol, which you can explore on free hour-long tours.

The city's hip East Village neighborhood lies near our Des Moines hotels. Just east of downtown, the East Village draws locals with boutique shops selling one-of-a-kind jewelry, trendy denim and chunky boots. Interspersed with the shops are Des Moines' most inventive restaurants. In the summer, diners head downtown to street-side bistros conveniently close to our hotels in Des Moines. Take your pick from the wide range of choices, from oyster bars to Thai diners to steakhouses serving up tender Midwestern beef.

Stay in our Holiday Inn Des Moines hotels in spring, when the capital city introduces Iowa's most flavorful vintages at its annual Winefest Des Moines celebration. In August, the Iowa State Fair showcases one of the world's largest livestock shows and offers lots of free entertainment.

I've stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Des Moines at Drake University several times now and have always found it to be pleasant and reasonably priced. I was in West Des Moines for a conference but [More] the rates at the Holiday Inn Express were lower than the conference discounted rates at the hosting hotel. With the easy access to I-235, this worked out well for me all the way around. [Less]
Location and Service
By Bulldog Bart
Can't beat the location near Drake University. Staff was friendly and we slept well. Loved the choice of two different type of pillows. Breakfast could be better but it was fine. [Less]
Unique hotel but older rooms, unfriendly staff
By BeerTraveler086
If we came to Des Moines again, I may consider finding a hotel in a better-looking neighborhood (this one made me nervous and was a bit noisy), but it was convenient to the locations we visited and [More] had what we considered a good price for a hotel with a good breakfast included. I would probably only choose it based on me being an IHG rewards member. I would definitely recommend the front desk staff receive some coaching in being friendly to tired travelers. It took us a while to get the staff's attention and we barely got a "hello" during our quick check in. I was a hotel front desk clerk myself back in college, and I know how hectic it can be, but I always was friendly with people coming in because it was important to keep people coming back. I commend the housekeeping staff for the excellent job keeping the hotel beautifully clean (I was a housekeeper too, back in the day) and the bed very comfortable; but management could be more attentive in general to bigger room maintenance - wallpaper issues, bathroom ceiling, etc. Overall, just okay.

Very Nice hotel
By Ladydi147
My daughter and I were in town to go to a concert. The hotel shuttled us to and from the concert. This was a lifesaver for us instead of having to walk. The driver was very nice and chatted with [More] his each way. [Less]
