First off...WELCOME to Des Moines!
If you want to live Downtown...those are two good options. It really depends on if you want to live in the nightlife or not. That is really the determining factor between those two areas. Also, Court Avenue will be next to the riverwalk...but Hubbell is close to the Gateway West Park area. On Court...you have the market...East Village has one too...and the Gateway West area is close to Gateway Market. If you like independent coffee, Court has Java Joes...East Village has the EV Coffee Bean...and if you like Starbucks...it is in the Gateway West area. There are actually several more rental options to look at too (10th Street Lofts, East Village Square, Vine Street Lofts, Arlington Hallet...etc.).
other options in the Downtown area to look at.
