We come to Des Moines multiple times a year to visit family and made a quick trip down this past weekend. We have stayed in several hotels in the area over the past 4-5 years. We have found the one we will stay in from now on in Hotel Renovo! It was clean, beautifully decorated and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. I was there with my daughter, my son and his wife and young daughter and we all had the same feeling. The pool is huge and they also have a spa and fitness area. The staff were taking appropriate COVID precautions. It was overall a wonderful stay. Will definitely recommend it to our extended family who also visits the area and we will be back! Thank you Hotel Renovo!
The hotel staff was extremely polite and helpful. The hotel was super clean. All the linens were fresh and fluffy. The pool area was great including the hot tub/spa. We might make this "staycation" an annual event.
We just grabbed this room last minute for a quick night away from the kids. Hotel is very clean, very modern, and very well kept. Of course it's newly renovated, but I have no complaints about the facilities whatsoever.
Checkin was simple, and a little less formal, in a good way. Not a big countertopped area like most places, just a desk with a couple computers. Made it feel a little more intimate.
The bed was a little hard, like most hotels, but with nice linens. Bathroom was nice, and had a big shower. Toilet was in a little separate room, albeit with no door.
We brought the kids for swimming the next day and had the pool to ourselves. It was a little chilly, but it was also -5°F outside.
Breakfast would have been extra, and we didn't have time, so we didn't partake. Same for the restaurant and bar area; looked nice but no direct experience.
I don't need a hotel in Des Moines that often, but I would absolutely stay here again.
Hotel Renovo is one of my favorite places to go for a poolside room in the Des Moines area, As a family, we like to rent out the poolside room to let our kids swim over Friday and Saturday. the staff is so welcoming, very accommodating, and As a family, we have a wonderful time, As a mother, it's nice to be able to have a kitchenette, and a full table in the room so we don't have to leave for breakfast or for dinner. The poolside room has a patio door that gets you into the pool area- no walking down the hallway- It's great! I also enjoy the patio tables that the pool offers. It really is a fun time that we look forward to once a year.
We stayed one night since we had family in town. I believe the front desk mans name was Max on the day we checked in and out. He was by far one of the most polite hotel workers I ever met. Super friendly and made us feel very comfortable. We loved the large pool area and enjoyed playing bags and ping-pong. Thank you Max for making our trip memorable.
