Hilton Des Moines Downtown has 14,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 10,000 square-foot ballroom that opens onto an idyllic outdoor terrace. All meeting space is located on the same floor, allowing for easy flow among the spaces for multi-function meetings and events. The property is the only hotel in downtown Des Moines that features natural light in every meeting room. Each space pulls through the tech-centric theme of the hotel, featuring technology including touch-screen navigation signage, smart window lighting and Click Share technology in boardrooms.As part of the Des Moines Skywalk system, the hotel provides a direct connection to the Iowa Events Center, offering the most convenient accommodation option for convention attendees. Located in the heart of downtown Des Moines, the hotel is also situated near the airport and surrounded by some of the city's most impressive dining options, major businesses and downtown attractions like the Iowa State Capitol, Pappajohn Sculpture Park and the city's renowned Farmer's Market. "Hilton Des Moines Downtown will attract even more people and events to central Iowa," said Greg Edwards, President & CEO, Catch Des Moines. "The fact that the hotel is connected and right next door to the Iowa Events Center is a game changer for us in luring new conventions, sporting events and trade shows to the metro. One of the most powerful elements of success in a community is positive momentum - prior to opening the doors of the hotel, the Catch Des Moines team has already booked over 23 new conventions, conferences and sporting events. These events will have an economic impact of nearly $73 million ($72,942,217)." Hilton Des Moines Downtown will warmly invite guests to the community with its locally-inspired touches, including a rotating art exhibit, provided by the local Moberg Gallery. The artwork, created by local and regional artists, will be proudly displayed and available for purchase in the hotel's lobby.
The hotel will also be home to Park Street Kitchen, a modern restaurant featuring dishes created with locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients and Des Moines' only outdoor, patio fireplace.
