This major construction project will include expanding the size of the existing structure to create a 102 room urban farm inspired hotel that will include a full service restaurant that Heart of America's culinary team is currently developing. The hotel and its rooms will be designed with a minimalist approach, to give guests a clean and relaxing atmosphere perfect for unwinding after a long day. Hotel rooms will be furnished with lavish bedding and spa like amenities, featuring the Beekman Brother's signature line of goat's milk soap. The restaurant will serve its food in a large-scale breakfast space and an open concept bar in the lobby. The bar will include a soft seating area for guests to enjoy a variety of libations along with chef inspired cuisine. Relaxation does not end inside property, an expansive porch will feature comfortable seating outdoors for hotel guests to enjoy. Known for providing an alternative to cookie cutter hotels, Heart of America Group designers will create a space that is unique to the Hotel Renovo, yet welcoming to guests from all around the world. For business and event needs, the hotel offers two meeting rooms configured with state of the art A/V equipment and can be configured to accommodate as many as 115 people. Catering for meetings and events will be available through the hotel's restaurant.

Hotel Renovo! My family and I stayed at Hotel Renovo on Tuesday evening. We were in Des Moines for a Jr. Olympics Track Meet. After spending all day in a noisy stadium sitting on hard bleachers, I was ready for some “quiet and comfort”. I found it at Hotel Renovo. What a

I believe our room was a Deluxe King. We had a king size bed, large bathroom and a sitting area with couch, chair and flat screen tv. Even though it was not a suite it was very nice.

Do any rooms have balconies?
If I remember correctly there are balconies around the pool area. Depending on when you will be visiting they have outside patios near the activity area. Those looked very nice and comfy.

"If you don’t like stairs I won’t recommend the loft suite."
"rooms near the end of halls are best"
"Don't rely on sleeper sofa for actual sleeping, very uncomfortable."
"During winter, suggest ground floor rooms to experience snow :-)"
"The loft is really nice, but NOT if you are the one sleeping on the pull out sofa!"
