Stay where the presidents stayed at the historic Hotel Fort Des Moines, Curio Collection by Hilton, and experience contemporary sophistication that rings with charm from its storied past. Opened first in 1919 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, our newly renovated boutique hotel evokes nostalgia from the moment you step into the grand two-story lobby and resonates all the way to our beautifully restored grand ballroom.
Boasting a prime location in the heart of downtown Des Moines, staying with us means you’re near all that the city has to offer. This classic, brick-style hotel is an eight-minute walk from Western Gateway Park and less than two miles from the Iowa State Capitol.
Revel in fantastic downtown views from our modern guest rooms and sink into plush bedding while taking comfort with amenities like complimentary WiFi, refrigerators, smart HDTVs, and coffeemakers. Opt for a suite and sprawl in spacious living areas or spoil yourself in our sumptuous Presidential Suite.
With 12,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, the Hotel Fort Des Moines is the perfect place to host corporate trainings, team building events, seminars, and much more. A full banquet team can meet the needs for hosted dinners, work lunches, or quick coffee breaks.
The golden dome that shines in the Des Moines skyline is the Iowa State Capitol and is two miles from our hotel. The Wells Fargo Arena, the Des Moines Civic Center and the Hy-vee Hall at the Iowa Events Center are less than two miles away. The Iowa State Fair is a Des Moines cultural attraction that takes place every summer. However, the grounds’ buzzing with activity throughout the year with livestock exhibitions, antique shows, concerts and more.
