Facts

  • It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
  • The design of the Hotel Fort Des Moines follows a formula typical of its era. It consists of a nine story u-shaped block - permitting light and air to a maximum number of rooms - atop a two-story base dedicated to public and commercial spaces.
  • The elevation is divided into the classic base, shaft, and crown, with ornamentation concentrated at the lower levels and just under the cornice line.
