Owner of the best hotel gym in Des Moines, Marriott deserves major kudos for changing a small, unimpressive workout room into a significant workout experience. High ceilings, a good mix of top-notch Life Fitness cardio machines, a separate strength/dumbbell area and adequate lighting. Marriott also sports a 3-lane, approx. 15-yard lap pool with bottom stripes and a hot tub for water-lovers in the crowd. The water temp is somewhat warm and length short, but to get anything lappable in a hotel is unusual.

Along with the gym, Marriott's rooms and its common areas underwent a spruce-up too. All abodes now offer premium bedding, flat screen televisions and appealing baths. Marriott's smokefree policy is another great benefit for healthy travelers.

Outdoor runners should consider a jog to Gray's Lake or along the River path that picks up in front of Embassy Suites.
