The year is 2014 and humans have perfected the Wi-Fi technology so that the internet is available throughout any building premises. Not at this hotel. Stayed at this hotel for 3 days and was able to get net only on the 3rd day morning, that too after numerous complaints at reception. Not to mention that my iPad could never connect... More

Our experience here was not too good. We were here for a technology conference. Wifi was terrible. Upon inquiring at the front desk we were told to just stay in the lobby and maybe we could get connected, really?? Our room was Ok, bed was comfortable. The first morning we were there we had NO hot water at all. We... More

Staff was very friendly from the beginning to end. Property outside needs be to cleaned up and painted. Halls and rooms had a funny odor. Room was average, not worth the price paid. Heater made awful noise all night, internet, phone and remote didn't work. I was told there was a problem with router for the internet, they looked at... More

For the price, the room was small, outdated (wall paper peeling, paint scraped off of walls, small holes in walls) and not very clean (dusty headboards, stained comforters, dirty windows, sticky stuff on end table). The pool was big with warm water, but there was brown stuff dripping from the ceiling beams all over.

The hotel had select comfort beds. One of them were flat and we could not find the remote to inflate it. The next morning, there was no hot water. When we complain, we were told since the reservation was booked through Travelocity, there was nothing they could do. That is hard to believe. We would never considered staying there again.

A company for which I teach seminars has done business here for many years. The staff seems to have gone through a complete turnover and I had problems getting an extension cord for my meeting room (even though we provide a complete diagram and they've set it up for us at least 20 times a year for decade). The floors... More

Very disappointed once again by this hotel. We decided, against better judgement, to try this hotel again after they announced new management. We just did a three day stay for a sportshow being conducted nearby and decided on the Riverfront because of the convenient location. Staffing at this hotel was excellent and the room clean and comfortable, though smaller than... More

I stayed here the week of 11/11/13 for a couple of days. I have stayed here for a number of years, about every 3 months, mostly while it was the Radisson, but also as the Riverfront. I was very impressed with the renovations and the upkeep of the hotel since the Radisson. It looks great! The rooms are very updated... More

This was an unexpected stop in Grand Rapids. The hotel is right off US 131 with easy access. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was excellent! Although a little small, everything was up to date, not a scratch or a spot to be found in either the bedroom or bathroom. The bed, chair and desk were comfortable.... More

I dont think that place has seen a renovation in 40 yrs. Mostly disgruntled, bitter, unhelpful staff that were probably to acerbic to get a job at DMV or post office. The grounds were unkempt. Definitely on the wrong side of the river, next to some nice chain link fence auto yards.
