Located in Woodland Heights, our suite is in a quiet neighborhood that offers a respite from the busyness of the city. Here, you can find some of Des Moines’ best restaurants; treat yourself to an Italian dinner at Noah’s Ark. For outdoor fun, explore the walking and cycling trails at Des Moines Water Works Park. Just minutes from Downtown, you’re also close to the city’s most popular attractions. Check out the Pappajohn Sculpture Park, State Historical Museum of Iowa, and Wells Fargo Arena!

At Frontdesk, a core value is to be a good neighbor. We extend this 5-star experience to you, our guests, as well as our property partners. This means we have a zero-tolerance policy for parties or gatherings. To ensure this in the most comfortable and least intrusive way possible, we use a noise sensor to detect the noise level inside of the suite. The number of people inside the suite may not exceed the reserved guest amount at any time. While we do not anticipate the need, following multiple warnings, we will utilize local law enforcement to ensure compliance. If removal is required, it will be done at the guest's expense. Thank you for respecting the community and our commitment to be a good neighbor.
Help us be a good neighbor by respecting and following our house rules.
Please be aware that while rare, violation of house rules is grounds for removal at the guest’s expense. If you have questions about our house rules, do not hesitate to reach out by tapping the Scout button on the right.
9pm-7am, daily. As with most communities, please keep music, movies, or other noise to a conversational level during the quiet hours.
To ensure we’re being good neighbors, this suite is equipped with a noise sensor that measures decibels. There is no recording of audio, the device is active 24/7 and is located in the living area. If the noise exceeds a reasonable level, our Trust and Safety team will receive a notification and message you. To comply with community regulations, if the noise sensor becomes disconnected we will notify you if we need access to your stay to reconnect it.
