With more than 600 independent properties across 85 countries, Preferred Hotels & Resorts offers its guests unique luxury experiences and quality customer service. Each hotel must conform to the brand's Preferred Standards of Excellence – an anonymous, annual inspection carried out by third-party experts to ensure top-notch service is provided – to remain a Preferred property. And within each collection (Preferred Legend Collection, Preferred LVX Collection, Preferred Lifestyle Collection and Preferred Connect Collection), travelers can expect amenities like locally inspired restaurant menus and full-service spas. Several Preferred properties also feature kids clubs, swimming pools and beach and ski slope access. What's more, members of the brand's I Prefer Hotel Rewards program can earn points – which can be redeemed for free nights – and perks, such as free Wi-Fi access and welcome amenities, during their stays. Popular collections in Preferred Hotels & Resorts appear on our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Canada, Best Hotels in Mexico, Best Hotels in Bermuda and Best Hotels in Europe rankings lists; the U.S. News-ranked Preferred Hotels & Resorts are listed below.

    Hotel Renovo
    Urbandale, IA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 210 reviewsTripAdvisor (210)
    Free WiFi

    Located within a modern farmhouse in Urbandale, Iowa, Hotel Renovo's 102 guest rooms feature Carrara marble bathrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi access, glass barn shower doors, flat-screen TVs and, in select accommodations, farmhouse kitchen sinks and wet bars. Recent guests said the beds were extremely comfortable, but some mentioned that the nearby parking lot and highway bring in a lot of noise. Outside of the accommodations, lodgers will find a 24-hour business kiosk, an indoor pool and whirlpool, a fitness center and breakfast and dinner served in the hotel's lobby. For more dining options, the hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of several restaurants. Guests will find this hotel about 10 miles east of downtown Des Moines, making it a favorable location for business travelers but not ideal for those wanting to be in the heart of downtown. On the plus side, the hotel participates in the iPrefer rewards program, so members can accrue or redeem points while staying here.
