No matter the budget, we are familiar in working with all couples at the Surety Hotel. Surety Hotel is founded in the city’s old Hippee Building. Also known as the Southern Surety Building, it was purchased by an insurance company in 1924. It was the first skyscraper to grace the skyline of Des Moines, cementing its iconic status in the story of the city. It was built in the Beaux-Arts style of architecture for an elaborate and instantly recognizable look. The Polk County Courthouse is nearby, alongside many other city highlights. Although the building has its foundations in the world of insurance, it has seamlessly transitioned to hospitality. They hope that their services today can provide the same sense of security and reassurance, that your most important moments are in trustworthy hands. Surety Hotel offers 3 unique spaces in the Surety Ballroom, Solarium and Midland space. In all of our spaces, you can customize everything from the menu to the event design.
