Residence Inn Des Moines Downtown is located right by the scenic river, with day use rooms close to the Court Avenue Entertainment District. Within the hotel there’s free Wi-Fi and a fitness center, with indoor pool, and beyond the door there are beautiful botanical gardens, museums of art, and places to jog, cycle, and fish.
- Range of Restaurants – Beer aficionados need look no further than the Hessen Haus, a German beer hall that has more than 170 brews from Europe, and bites to eat too. If casual new American style is more your thing then check out the RoCA bistro, which also serves up a selection of craft cocktails. There’s a combination of old and new Italian dishes over at Lucca, whilst French flair can be enjoyed over at Django.
- Artistic Delights – If outdoor art is your bag then head over to Pappajohn Sculpture Park to see the garden and its artistic residents (plus chess and picnic tables if you’re feeling cerebral or hungry). Admission-free art is on offer indoors too, at the Des Moines Art Center. There’s a focus on modern and contemporary works at this family-friendly site, as well as a restaurant.
- Botanical Gardens – To the north of the day rooms you can find the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden which combines external floral delights with those housed inside a geodesic dome. There’s another botanical garden as part of Salisbury House & Gardens, which comes alongside an art museum, concert venue, and a 1920s stone mansion.
- Des Moines Water Works Park – If you just want to relax and get away from it all, pay a visit to the Des Moines Water Works Park. There are trails for cycling and running if you’ve got energy to burn, and places to fish if you’re in a more contemplative mood.
