    If I wasn't a starwood member I wouldn't stay here. They lock down the TV's and rooms are small. No platinum member benefits either.

    Can't count the ways this place sucks. Just read that a guy paid $199 here. I would probably burn the place down on my way out if I paid that.

    Talk to Matt at the front desk. He is awesome! Always goes above and beyond.

    They make you fill out a form at check-in. Last thing you want to do after flying halfway across the country.#oldschool

    Elevators (2) are slow so expect a long wait when its busy. Pool is closer to an oversized bath tub. Atrium projects sound throughout so bring ear plugs. Stay south in Clive at the new hotels...

    The wifi tip is a good one. It want busy when I got here so I can't comment on the elevators. They seemed pretty quick. Buffet breakfast is average but it was free for me anyway.

    300+ rooms and only 2 elevators? Never coming back.

    Very nice conference facilities. Ask for Craig Light.

    The best shoe shine guy in town. See Johnny on weekdays in the mornings.

    Pretty disappointing. Especially for the rediculous price.

    Nice place, friendly staff, great restaraunt. As of now, no gym due to renovation.

    Get free internet in your room by connecting to the lobby internet first after you hit connect switch over to the wifi in your room!!

    WiFi in the rooms is slow. Certainly not worth $9.95. Free connection in the lobby is better.

    Don't expect any Platinum Member benefits!
