    Best Day of our lives

    The whole experience was amazing. Brooke made both rooms we rented look so beautiful. The food was great, service was so professional. I could not have ask for a better wedding. Everyone who attended the wedding were so impressed. I would 100% recommend the Sheraton and Brooke for their special occasions. It was perfect.

    I can honestly say I chose Rebecca and not the hotel. The reason I say that is that we looked everywhere for venues and I was not feeling the energy of a few of the wedding coordinators. We happened to pass by the Sheraton and decided to just stop by and take a look. From the second we met her, I loved her energy! She is so positive and has an awesome can-do personality. My wedding was a half American style wedding and half traditional from my home country, she worked around the fact that we would be bringing in our own cultural food and it worked out great. We overpaid our bill and they ended up returning over $550 to us!

    I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family, mainly because they will get to work with Rebecca!

    Where to start with our review of the Sheraton West Des Moines. They were simply amazing. We started working with them 18 months ago, and every step of the process has been seamless. Their Event Planner, Rebecca, is simply the best. Not a single detail was overlooked and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. Especially Brian and Annie the Groups Coordinator! They were true professionals. They have so many events, but they truly made us feel like we were the most important one they had ever hosted. In every meeting Rebecca listened to what we thought we wanted and made it all happen without batting an eye. All of our guests had a great time, loved the dinner, and couldn't believe how great they were treated throughout the evening.
