Hotel Renovo || Des Moines, IA

on sunday, I had the opportunity to get a group of local bloggers together and have brunch at the brand new hotel renovo (a member of preferred hotels & resorts). it just opened at the end of july, and I’ve been dying to make my way inside. it was formally a hotel, just waiting for a pretty facelift complete renovation. and oh my, this place turned out incredible. my pinterest “home” board brought to life, essentially. it is how I see + want the state of iowa to be seen. it’s rustic modern. farmhouse chic. it incorporates the rich farming history of our state, with pure elegance. it is decorated impeccably. let’s just say I took a few photographs ..

the hotel features 102 incredible rooms. they’re all light + airy. with carrera marble bathrooms, and beds that you could get lost in for days. they even have incredible two-level suites, that I may try to permanently move into. as any good hotel should, they have a plentiful breakfast menu. but this is no “hotel breakfast”. go for the cheesy potatoes, stay for the omelet station + mimosas. they have gorgeous meeting spaces. a full service bar, that I would pick up and move into my house (it’s decorated perfectly). even two incredible outdoor spaces; one (located very close to the bar) featuring a bocce court + fire pit.

for those coming to des moines for a visit, I recommend staying right here. (and calling me, so I can stay with). and for you locals, they host really fun events on tuesday nights. you can see the calendar below.

I think a staycation is in order for the husband + I. what do you think?
