I lived there a year ago I wanted to give my honest feedback. Its not a good place to live. You can get more bang for your buck elsewhere in the Des Moines area. If you absolutely want the downtown Des Moines feel but can't… See More >

    The customer service and management are impeccable. The staff is quick to get back to you whenever you need them. The maintenance crew is very responsive and respectful. I am glad I chose Parker at 7th.

        Incredibly infuriating to deal with management. Over promise and never deliver, dealing with constant fire alarms and water pipes breaking was mentally taxing. The apt was unfinished with a wall to be painted and some damage near the rubber trim of the base. Microwave had… See More >

            The management team is extremely unprofessional, rude, short and have been very far from empathetic during a national Pandemic aside from one lady. The elevators rarely work and the building has 16 floors, and maintenance requests are unanswered constantly. I have been staying with my… See More >

                I stayed in Park Place for one an half year and the most important suggestion which I will make is that do not trust whatever the staff of Park Place says. They are one of the biggest thug I have ever met. Connie and Valarie are… See More >

                    Great location, well-furnished. Stayed here for nine months (in 15th fl, one bedroom apartment) and it was convenient, clean, and comfortable.

                      I heard some people in the elevator complaining about this place and that they were going to leave a bad review, so I decided I would give an opinion as well. I have lived here for over 4 years now. Connie, the manager- contrary to what… See More >

                        The good: the location is awesome (especially if Des Moines ever becomes like a normal downtown and adds a grocery/convenience store and more dinner restaurant options). The bad: the interior of the floors is just old, dirty and smells awful. You gag when walking by the… See More >
