Very good 8.0
1 element missing
The overall stay was very good with the exception of the breakfast which I considered to be sub par. All of the hot items were actually cold with the exception of the French toast which was fresh made.

Great hotel for a weekend get away
We had a great time during our stay at the element west Des Moines. The outdoor hot tub was a real treat and the hotel is close to everything. Only downside is the breakfast they provide. What they describe as breakfast on their website is not actually what you get. The turkey sausage links and eggs were as cold as ice and there were no breakfast sandwiches or smoothies like their website said they provided.

Great location; poor service
My wife and I booked this hotel while in town for a wedding. Arrived at the hotel at 4:15 to check-in and get ready but was told that despite check-in starting at 3:00 that there were no rooms clean and we needed to come back. So we got ready for the wedding in the car. When I returned at around 9:00 and checked in we were not given the executive suite I had booked and received a standard king. No hot water in the AM for shower. Pretty disappointing for a new hotel. I wish I hadn't prepaid for this hotel through The location is perfect with multiple restaurants and bars within walking distance so there is that, I guess.

Loved it!
Incredibly comfortable lobby and room! Our family met up with close friends ( 1/2 way point between our home states) and spent NYE together in this hotel. We could not have chosen a better hotel! We spent most of our time in the lobby eating our " Take out" food in their community style dinning tables as well as playing Just Dance on the Wii in their lovely lobby next to the Christmas Tree! Next time we find ourselves in West Des Moines we will definitely stay at the Element : )

Perfect hotel for family stay
This hotel is amazing. The kitchen was so clean & modern, we loved the space. We had a king room with a pull out couch. Plenty of room for 4 of us. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating. Breakfast was fantastic: full yogurt bar, fresh pancakes & frittatas. We will stay here again. Loved the atmosphere
