I thoroughly enjoyed my stays at the Prince Conference Center. I've stayed twice and each time was perfect. Nice rooms, wonderful buffet breakfast (and cookies!!). The hotel was quiet, clean and the staff was especially helpful and friendly. On one stay I was with a small group and we needed a suite and the suite at the Prince Conference Center... More

The Prince Conference Center works for conferences or as a hotel. The staff is exceedingly helpful, the windows rum from floor to pitched ceiling, all the better to watch the snow falling (and it was). The fireplace invites conversation and there's 24-hour coffee/tea to warm you from the inside. The rooms are not elegant, but they are spacious and clean.... More

Dear TrackerVienna_VA, Thank you for the kind and accurate description of our building and services. The fireplaces and windows are a great feature of the building, the design intent was to have people do exactly what you did, sit, relax and converse. It was our pleasure to have you stay with us for 5 nights. Hope to see you return!... More

The PCC is excellent. My room was very clean and nice. The tremendous customer service and awesome attitudes of all the staff sets this place apart from others. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. Loved my stay!

Our 5 night stay at Prince Conference Center in November was outstanding. This trip was a combination of visiting family and a night of business as well. It was so refreshing to come and go and be greeted warmly by the front desk staff each time. The kitchen staff as well as the housekeeping staff were equally friendly and competent.... More

My wife and I stayed here while at a conference nearby. When checking in, staff was very friendly and efficient. Plain rooms, with no microwave, fridge or coffee maker, but very comfortable and clean. Other hotel chains should have their staffs trained here as housekeeping was awesome. Dim lighting in bathroom was only other concern. Grounds behind hotel are beautiful... More

This was our second stay at the Prince Conference Center. We were there for a one-night stay in late September. Access to the hotel is a little tricky off the highway, especially at night. The signage is a bit small, so pay attention. From the outside, the facility looks like a standard office building, so would not have guessed there... More

Dear David Z, Thank you for staying with us a second time. Your advice about the small signage and being tricky at night is a good suggestion, when arriving on campus look for maroon and white signs at each intersection, they should point you in the right direction to find Prince Center. Our building matches the Calvin College campus building... More

We have stayed at the Prince Center many times over the years. It has always been a pleasure. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet.

We stayed while visiting Calvin College with my daughter. The rooms are small but very clean. The décor is a tiny bit dated but not bad by any means. My only complaint would be for the overnight front desk person. She could use a little training on how to greet customers. We arrived late in the evening around 11:00PM and... More
