Des Moines
Hospitality Industry

Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Des Moines area.

The area that Des Moines now occupies is thought to have been an Indian burial ground, and later the home of Trappist Monks, both of whom may have contributed to the town’s and adjacent river’s name. The peace, reverence and security felt by all groups who have lived here persist to this day. Whatever troubles that Des Moines has seen since its mid-1800s beginnings have been due more to external factors, such as the number of native sons lost in World War I, or the crippling effect of the stock market crash on civic expansion plans, than on any internal turbulence. The ambitions of Des Moines residents consequently have focused more on development of superior regional cultural and educational centers that support the needs of a healthy and robust agricultural community in the most environmentally rich area of America’s heartland. If you want to experience an authentic American farm breakfast, the inns and restaurants around Des Moines offer the best in the country.
