This is a very nice place. We were greeted with a warm friendly greeting the moment we arrived. Top notch customer service. The room was spotlessly clean with great amenities. We enjoyed having an evening drink in the lobby and chatting with other guests and staff.

Traveled a fair bit around the country & this is definitely one of our favorite spots we've ever stayed. The staff was wonderful. The kids loved the pool & it was a great value. If we ever need to stay the night in Des Moines again, this will be our first choice.

The lobby was actually a nice place to be in. Not the same old hotel experience. Someone had taste and put their own style into it. Rooms were clean and the bathroom had nice faucets, which goes a long way to enjoying the experience. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my room had a sliding door that opened to...

A nice HIX hotel with a good staff. Clean is my judging tool at each hotel. We always like an upgrade because of our loyalty to this chain and we were given a lovely room as a result. This one is likely to be on our trip agenda again

I truly enjoyed my recent visit to the Hotel Renovo. Everything felt "special" from the friendly check in, to the decor, to the quiet atmosphere. It was a pleasure to find such an oasis in Des Moines. Ideal for a romantic getaway or business trip. I wouldn't bring the kids -- the premium touches would be lost on them. Also...

It is hard to believe that this hotel used to be a Country Inn & Suites! What a wonderful experience from check in and the informative front desk staff to the impeccably clean and modern room with every detail thought of in its design. Thank you Hotel Renovo for an awesome stay. I will return!

Attractive lobby area and room. The pool/whirlpool area was also quite nice and almost empty when we were there late afternoon on a Friday (just a mom, dad and kid besides us). I thought the bed was quite comfortable; my partner found it a little bit on the hard side. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel - after reading...

Excellent hotel. Staff is friendly, the rooms are nice and clean, and the bathrooms are great. I will definitely book again when traveling through the area. Hotel looks clean, new and modern. There is a great restaurant walking distance away. The breakfast was not complimentary, and was very underwhelming. Otherwise good stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
