The finishing touches to the simple elegance of Hotel Renovo’s 102 rooms and suites are the complimentary Beekman 1802 toiletries, Starbucks coffee pods, and crisp Villa di Lusso bed linens. The spacious bathrooms feature Carrera marble vanities, as well as modern showers and bathtubs, while the comfortable bedrooms incorporate original farm-inspired artwork.
Upgrade to a suite for unique rolling barn-door closets and views of the pool. The king-size bedroom and luxurious bathroom with a glass-enclosed walk-in shower are upstairs so that downstairs can be used for entertaining with a 55” flat screen LCD TV and a dining table for six.
Hotel Renovo’s Lobby Bar and Grill is a celebration of chef-inspired cuisine in a relaxed setting with a versatile menu plus daily food and drink specials. For family-style, farm-inspired dining, amble over to the Machine Shed or enjoy top-notch Italian fare at Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse.
Lobby Bar and Grill – Have a drink or a light bite at this innovative, open-concept glass bar space. Take your pick of the food and drink specials, or head out to the terrace and linger over an alfresco lunch.
Machine Shed – Deemed a ‘love letter to the American farmer,’ the Machine Shed prizes authenticity and seasonal ingredients. Try high-quality traditional treats such as steak and eggs made with aged beef and juicy hand-battered chicken tenders — or stop by the gift shop and take your pick of homemade jellies, syrups, or private-label coffee.
Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse – As a Renovo recommendation, Johnny’s has something for everyone. Steaks and seafood sit alongside classic pasta dishes and a well-curated wine list. Try the deliciously simple Johnny Minelli — homemade fettuccine with a garlic cream sauce — or, for a luxurious spin on a classic, order their signature lobster mac ‘n’ cheese.
Before or after going out on the town, enjoy all the Hotel Renovo has to offer. Swim in the oversized indoor pool. Relax in the whirlpool with impressive views through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Indulge in your favorite cocktail at the bar. Work out at the gym and then look at the stars on the wraparound porch.
When you’re ready to venture into Urbandale, visit the local history museum, Living History Farms, and the Clive Aquatic Center. Take in the sights and sounds of the Historic East Village, or hit downtown’s acclaimed restaurants and famous Farmers’ Market. From there, take a short walk to the Science Center’s planetarium for stargazing, watch a world premiere at the Des Moines Civic Center, or catch a ball game at Principal Park, home to the Iowa Cubs.
Escape from the hubbub of West Des Moines at Hotel Renovo, the ideal base for relaxation after exploring Iowa’s thriving capital. In the heart of Urbandale and just a ten minutes’ drive from West Glen and Jordan Creek Town, the hotel’s convenient location means everything you need is right on your doorstep — from cultural hotspots to the buzzing shopping streets, and restaurants of the metro area’s west side. If you want to go exploring, it is a short cab ride to the city center and the popular downtown, business, and river districts.
To ensure that every moment of your trip is stress-free, the hotel’s experienced concierge team can help with any transportation arrangements.
