"A Perfect Hotel and Conference Location", An Eventective User from Atlantic, IA
The Downtown Marriott Hotel is a great hotel and conference location. It is a well-designed, spacious hotel that offers its guests many amenities. It is full of beautiful plants and fountains. The rooms include nearly everything you need. The beds are comfortable and the rooms come with a hair dryer and iron to help keep you looking your best. There is also a great view of the city from each room. Dry cleaning and laundry services are also available. The hotel also has a swimming pool and fitness center. The hotel includes a coffee shop, a gift shop, and a hair salon. The employees are also very friendly and willing to help. Their concierge desk is definitely an asset.

I have also really liked the Downtown Des Moines Marriott Hotel for its conference or meeting capabilties. There are a couple very large conference centers and many smaller rooms that can be size adjusted. Elevators and escalators make movement within this large hotel easy.

The only downside to this hotel is its price. It is a little expensive, but if you have the money, it is worth it. This hotel and conference center offer a lot for its guests and business associates.

Please strongly consider making the Downtown Des Moines Marriott Hotel the location for your next business meeting, conference, or get together.
