    We liked the space of the room and furnishings especially the extra two sinks. Pillows were comfortable.

    The shuttle never picked us up on the return trip From Iowa Events Center. We called at 10:32 pm to request pick up from National Square Dance Convention. I called again at 10:46 pm to confirm they were on their way. Holiday Inn and Marriott shuttle came twice still No shuttle. I called again at 10:52 pm and desk confirmed the shuttle was coming over and had a delivery at Mariott first. Called at 11 pm asking about shuttle which we hadn't seen and we'd been out side for a half hour and was told they were on their way. 11:10 pm called and desk told us they got off five minutes ago.

    The room was nice and breakfast was great.

    We were very disappointed that there was an extra charge for internet access. I can understand an upcharge for valet parking,etc., but everyone travels with one or two devices requiring wifi, and at that cost for a room, it should be provided.

    The staff is friendly and helpful. Nice evening reception. Room was comfortable and quiet.

    Housekeeping was not good. Called twice and didn't come until after 7:30 pm. Didn't leave wash clothes, bath mat or clean glasses. Was over charged $537.60 on my bill.

    Liked the location and shuttle service to and from venues within 2 miles of hotel.

    Sofa bed was not made when room was cleaned after our first night despite having been used. Only main bed was made. Felt like room was on half cleaned.

    Guest rating

    The hotel staff was pleasant. Cook to order lady at breakfast made some of the best omelets I have ever had and was amazingly efficient. Front desk staff was nice.

    First, we had our 3 kids ages 9, 11, and 12 in room 601, a double suite to accommodate 5. The sofa bed was horribly uncomfortable. A bottle of $1 water at the store they had available for $4. We paid the additional $20 cash for underground Valet and found our vehicle in the outside lot across the street overnight. Our booking info said free WiFi, this was not provided, an additional charge of $10 is needed to access. We used one credit card to book, one to pay on arrival. Our bill delivered to our room was considerably less than our card we used to pay was charged. 5 days later we discovered the card we used to book was also charged nearly $60 in pre-authorizations to make our stay nearly $100 more than the guaranteed price given, which has not been returned after 4 business days. Housekeeping was beating on the door to clean the room at 8:30 am when our checkout time was 11:00. The shower in the bathroom had missing and discolored caulking around the tub and had a musty odor.

    The cocktail hour, the location to the Arena, and the wonderful breakfast. Of course the fabulous beds!

    There was a small bit of glass on floor in front of sink but it was taken care of immediately and the Manager came and gave us free dinner which was totally unnecessary but appreciated

    Great hotel close to a lot of restaurants, theaters and arenas. Fun manager's reception and the breakfast is delicious hot and fresh.

    Tried to charge $30.00 more than room price at time reservation was made. Also over charged my card a lot of money. Things were straightened out however the accounting manager acted like it was no big deal and an apology was an afterthought.

    Location relative to sports venue

    The fact that you (Booked.net) listed my name incorrectly, so after driving 8 hrs. to get there, we had no reservation that ES could find!!! Since you had my name wrong, you were going to charge a no show fee, which the ES waived...better have your operators clued in...
