Holiday Inn Express Des Moines, Des Moines
Checked in on NYE and the gentleman at front desk was super nice and gave tons of suggestions on where to go and what to do. Hotel was also really quiet and no outside noise when midnight hit!

Holiday Inn should not use plastic coffee pods
Everything was exactly as it should be, although I was disappointed to see a Keurig coffee maker and its pods in the room. Until those pods are not plastic, no hotel chain committed to environmental responsibility should be offering them.

Great breakfast and such a gracious hostess!
They got a A++ for the breakfast, I have never had such a lovely continental breakfast before it was delicious too.

Just what you expect from HI
We stayed here at the end of a long 2 week trip. We were also visiting our niece who attends Drake. They aren't kidding when they say near Drake U. It is right across the street. And the Drake Diner is right next door. The neighborhood is mostly older homes that are probably used by students, but there are businesses right nearby too. The room was very nice and comfortable. The beds were nice queen size beds. The breakfast in the morning was fine, it featured hot and cold items which was nice. All in all a nice place to stay and a good value for your money
