The Faithwalkers Midwest Conference will begin at 6:45 pm on Friday, December 29 and will end at noon on Monday, January 1. Registration will open at 3pm in the lobby of the Iowa Events Center.

You are responsible to reserve your own housing.

For a Faithwalkers Midwest discounted room rate, please contact one of the hotels listed below to make a reservation. These hotels have made block discounts available to us. You are welcome to stay at any hotel outside of those listed, as there are many more in the Des Moines Area. Please feel free to make arrangements outside of these hotels. 

Please check with your church to see if they’ve chosen a particular hotel.

Note that several of the hotels in the area may have available rooms, but do not have a block for us. We welcome you to take a look at the other hotels that Des Moines has to offer, possibly at a lower rate. 

Note for Parking: All downtown street parking is free after 6pm weekdays and all-day on weekends. This year’s conference will be over the holiday weekend, so parking will be free the entire time if you choose to park on the street. There are pay lots surrounding the Iowa Events Center for $8/day if you would like to park in the lots.  

Disclaimer: All rates are subject to availability. Please call the hotel to confirm and mention that you are with the Faithwalkers Midwest Conference. It is best to book your rooms as soon as possible before room blocks have filled up each year.
