The Choice for West Des Moines Hotels…

West Des Moines has some of the best places for shopping in the Greater Des Moines area!  From the eclectic Historic Valley Junction, with its mixture of new and old that has been a focal point of West Des Moines for decades, to the new 2 million-square-foot Jordan Creek Town Center, which features three distinct shopping, dining and entertainment districts.  You'll be sure to find something for everyone all within a short drive of the Staybridge Suites West Des Moines!

Historic Valley Junction:
Famous for its many street events, Valley Junction hosts a huge summer farmers' market on Thursdays, free weekly music, Jazz in July, Art Gallery nights, spring and fall art markets, antique jamborees, car shows, a huge Independence Day street celebration and parade, holiday open houses, and a Cinco de Mayo celebration.

In 1893, Valley Junction bustled with horse-drawn traffic, a trolley line, 8-foot-wide wooden sidewalks, and dirt streets lined with three banks, three drugstores and several “boarding houses” of questionable character. By the turn of the century, the Chicago, Rock Island, and Pacific Railroad made Valley Junction a popular stop where 26 passenger trains arrived and departed daily. After the railroad boom ended, Valley Junction slowed its pace and changed its name to West Des Moines in 1938.

Jordan Creek Town Center:
This 2 million sq ft. Town Center offers an enclosed shopping center featuring a combination of upscale fashion and lifestyle retailers, a 3.5 acre lake surrounded by trails, a boardwalk with waterfront dining, amphitheater, and a village district with large and specialty retailers.

Valley West Mall:
A popular West Des Moines shopping spot since 1975, Valley West was renovated in 2003 and is anchored by Younkers, Von Maur, and J.C. Penney.  More than one million shoppers visit the mall each year.

West Glen Town Center:
This "new urban" town center promotes its chic retail and unique establishments featuring home furnishings, art, wine, clothing, spa services, and more. 

West Glen is located at the forefront of the Mills Civic Parkway corridor in West Des Moines which leads to Glen Oaks, Iowa's only gated golf community and 18-hole championship golf course designed by the world renowned Tom Fazio.
