DES MOINES, Iowa, July 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to state fairs, Iowa is proud to proclaim that "nothing compares" to its annual celebration. That's the same sentiment Des Moines Marriott Downtown has year round about its grand accommodations, stellar services and annual deal that pays tribute to the Iowa State Fair.
Excited to roll out its Iowa State Fair Package, the Des Moines hotel plans to offer special perks that include deluxe rooms from just $219 per night plus complimentary high-speed internet access and valet parking for one vehicle. Because all is fair in love and comfort, the deal will only be available Aug. 11-21, 2016, the same dates the event is in town. Pre-payment for the entire stay is required at the time of booking.
The internationally acclaimed Iowa State Fair attracts more than a million people a year and features livestock shows, live entertainment, contests, plenty of rides for the entire family and an array of healthy and delectable foods. Whether families choose to ride the Double Ferris Wheel on the midway, listen to live music — with genres ranging from indie pop and country to R&B and Christian rock — on four stages, devour one of more than 70 food items on a stick, enjoy a tractor pull in the Grandstand, or participate in a talent or livestock show, there's plenty to do over multiple days of a Des Moines visit.
World-class performers including Lady Antebellum, Kiss, Steven Tyler, Jeff Dunham, Dierks Bentley, Jason Derulo and Brett Eldredge are scheduled to perform in the Grandstand as well, with tickets for these shows sold separately through Ticketmaster.
The Des Moines hotel is just 4 miles from the Iowa State Fairgrounds, making this an ideal place to retire after a fun-filled day of adventure. Guest rooms feature pillow-top mattresses with cotton-rich linens, custom duvets and plenty of fluffy pillows for a sound night's rest. Utilize the free Wi-Fi included in the special package to post pictures from the day's adventures on social media without tapping into your data plan. Mini-refrigerators, room service and Bath and Body Works products in bathrooms are among the many amenities and services leisure travelers will appreciate.
Before heading out to the fair, visitors can fuel up on rich French toast, eggs benedict, buttermilk pancakes, Belgian waffles, steak and eggs and many more breakfast favorites at Rock River Grill & Tavern, the hotel's casual American restaurant.
To take advantage of the Iowa State Fair Package, use promo code ZJL when booking online or calling 1-800-228-9290. No refunds, cancellations or revisions can be made after 24 hours from making reservations.
