Element, a Westin hotel brand, is coming to West Des Moines! Specifically, the hotel will locate in the Ponderosa development, brining life back into this stalled LADCO development.
From the Des Moines Register:
Element Hotel, a Starwood Hotels & Resorts brand, is under construction on the northwest corner of Market Street and South Prairie View Drive. Constructing the property is Denver-based developer Silverwest Hotels LLC. It will be the first Element Hotel in Iowa and the first project in the state for Silverwest.
The 110-room, extended-stay hotel will feature things like an electric vehicle station, a free bike-rental program, a swimming pool, a 24-hour fitness center and an emphasis on natural light, said Silverwest CEO Edward Mace.
“It creates this living environment for folks who view themselves of having a younger, healthier lifestyle,” he said.
The hotel is the first major investment in Ponderosa since the stalled development was bought by a Texas firm in 2014.
