Help was very willing to provide service and advice. The breakfast was much better than accommodation in the same or even higher price range. The internet access was tops and then in house computer for accessing air flights was a big help. we were also given great directions to a number of locations.

The staff was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast had hot and cold items, with a staff member clearing tables and making sure we had a good experience.

I stayed here for one night before I attended a seminar in Calvin College. It was very good (better, excellent), the dorm was impeccable, the staff friendly, the food good. This place also has a small gym. It is adjacent to a nature trail, good if you like to hike. A blessed experience.

This is a great facility for a conference. The center is in a convenient location from downtown Grand Rapids but also easy to get to from other West Michigan locations. The conference rooms are comfortable. The staff was very professional (almost invisible). The grounds are lovely. During our breaks, I explored some of the nearby nature trails and I was... More

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 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
