There are several hotels in downtown Des Moines for you to choose from.

Your housing choice should take into account these factors:

  • If your housing is off the D-Line Shuttle route, walking or driving to WC Downtown will be required.
  • If flying in, consider hotels with an airport shuttle. 
  • If driving in, consider the extra cost of parking at some hotels and/or street and surface lot parking fees during the day. WCD has the option of free parking in their church lots (day and night) during the conference.

The Pastors Conference will begin at 9am on Thursday, June 15 and will end around 9:00 pm on Friday, June 16. The Campus Workers Roundtable will be held on Saturday, June 17 from 9am-4pm at WCD.

Hotel Options

Please consider the start and end times of the Pastors Conference when booking your accommodations. We recommend checking in on June 14 and checking out on June 17. There are no conference sessions on June 17 except for the Campus Workers Roundtable.

For a Pastors Conference discounted room rate, please contact one of the hotels listed below to make a reservation and mention the Pastors Conference room rate. All rates are subject to availability. It is best to book your rooms as soon as possible, as these courtesy blocks will be released in mid-to-late May.

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

Note: You are welcome to stay at any hotel outside of those listed below, as there are many more in the Des Moines Area. Please feel free to make arrangements outside of these hotels. 

Note for Parking: WCD has designated lots with 40 spots for free parking during the conference (day and night). All downtown street parking is free after 6pm. Additional pay-lots in the surrounding blocks are abundant, and maps with parking options are available at the East Village Website and the Iowa Events Center Website.
