    Fabulous 8.6 From 363 reviews

    Good 6.0
    Hotel negatively impacted by protesting. It is downtown across the street from a City Hall. Windows of hotel were boarded up and fences were up in the area. Hotel smelled like sewage which we determined was coming from outside body of water. Due to COVID-19 no one entered our room during our 4 night stay. Garbage cans throughout the hotel stayed full and overflowing. This was the worse experience we’ve had at a Embassy Suites. Not all their fault.

    Eddie was terrible

    Good 6.0
    The furniture in our room was very "beat-up." The actual bedroom was not very clean. The baseboards/floor along the walls had over an inch thick of dust. The room obviously had not been vacuumed, under one bed was a pile of cough drops & the other was an unopened package of kids arm floaties and there was trash laying behind the actual trash can. The bathroom had 1 single Kleenex left, it was actually stuffed back into the box. For over $150 for one night, during the COVID-19 pandemic, I feel like we left there feeling dirty.

    Good 6.0
    The room was old. Bathroom door and desk dinged up. Mattress dipped and lumpy. With a view of the capital to the east and a view of downtown to the west we had a room on the north with an empty street and construction.

    Pay for WiFi
    This may not be particular to this hotel, but I was charged for using the WiFi (just standard WiFi) because I was not a Hilton Honors member. Really?

    wifi charges
    no free wifi. even though I'm a Hilton Honors member, since I booked through this site, they expected me to pay for wifi. I can't recall the last time I was asked to pay for wifi in a hotel.

    Great Stay!
    What a great stay! We decided to attend the Iowa State Fair this year, I selected this hotel because I LOVE the brand. It did not disappoint. It was super close to the Fairgrounds and yet down town and we could venture out to explore the city. Staff was super helpful and the they even had the shuttle available to take people to the fair. Thanks Embassy for a great stay.
