Hotel Renovo was such a pleasant surprise. The hotel is super clean. There are numerous staff that are not only cleaning rooms but also making sure the common areas are spotless. The decor is updated and quite stylish which sets this hotel apart from the other chains in the area. The staff was incredible and went out of their way to help in any way they could. My bathroom and room were clean and bright and the toiletries were above average! I loved my bed! I will be coming back to Des Moines for business soon and wouldn’t stay anywhere else.

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

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.
