    Unprofessional, unsafe!

    My ex boyfriend showed up there and my room information was given to him WITHOUT a word from me! This man banged on my door and tried to get in! He went downstairs and asked for a key to my room and he was given one!!!! I had to call front desk and they brought me a new set of keys and disabled his. Later when I called back after checking out asking why they would do that, they told me I had called and given permission for him to be allowed up to my room. I NEVER ONCE SAID THAT OR THAT I WAS WITH SOMEONE AT ALL! Beautiful place, BUT I COULD HAVE DIED THAT NIGHT!

    A Des Moines local enjoys another hidden gem

    I had an amazing stay at the Des Lux Hotel Des Moines. Everything was superb. The only “slight” negative was the jets in my tub didn’t work, and the fireplace between the living room and the bedroom seemed a little finicky. But minor details that barely detracted from an otherwise excellent stay. Check in was a breeze, champagne was chilled if I wanted it, and the decor was very stylish. Will definitely be back again, I highly recommend staying in a suite. It’s well worth the added cost.

    Room was right with he vibe I was trying to achieve!. Forgot it had a hot tub and sauna in the sports room. But I received a great message so that made up for it😄

    Des Moines stopover

    Neat find for the first nights stopover en route to AZ. Would’ve loved to look around and partake of amenities more. Will consider staying here again

    Loved our stay at the Des Lux

    Overall, the Des Lux was excellent. Location, staff, amenities and room were exactly what we were hoping for. The hotel is beautiful, and the fitness center is beyond better than the average hotel. The spa was almost perfect; if they just cleaned the windows and window sills in the spa area, it would be top notch. That is the only little complaint I have, otherwise we loved our stay and will be back!
