I stayed at the Prince Conference Center for 4 days and 3 nights for a professional conference. All meals (except one dinner) were provided by the Center. Meals are very balanced, with plenty of options for any dietary needs. It is a value-style hotel, consistent with what you might find at a Best Western or Holiday Inn. However, the cleanliness...

Due to flight delays I didn't get in until 1:00am. Normally they pick you up in a van but due to the late hour they said to take a cab and reimburse me. Room was clean and nice size, hot breakfast in the morning. My class meets in a meeting room there and the lunches and snacks are excellent. They... More

While waiting for mom to return from a long trip overseas, We needed a place to crash for a couple of hours. They were very accommodating to help us out and even offered us donuts. The rooms were very clean and the hotel was quiet. Looks like have a nice breakfast that includes a waffle machine.

We stayed 12/23 to 12/26. We were warmly greeted by the staff when we arrived. The lobby has comfortable seating and a beautiful stone fireplace. The common areas, hallways and rooms are "squeaky Dutch" clean. Breakfast is exceptionally good for a large facility. The extra touch was, on Christmas morning, under our room door was a note from Santa saying,... More

Great innovative idea to provide just the right place for parents visiting their students at Calvin College. Great breakfast, coffee and pastries all day. Complimentary airport pick up and drops as well.

lliya C, Yes, indeed! this is a creative concept to have a hotel located directly on the campus of Calvin College for parents of current or future college students (discounts apply parents of prospective students). We typically have one sweet and one salty snack for our guests to enjoy through the duration of their stay. I am glad you enjoyed... More

I come up here for seminary intensives and this is the place to stay. It's close to everything, very friendly staff, great breakfast, and very clean! The beds are a little stiff for me though but everything is so great. I love the view from our windows and the free wifi. Good job guys!

We are always pleased staying at this venue. There isn't enough space to tell you all the wonderful attributes of the property. The location is superb right off the Beltline and 1-1.5 miles to 28th Street. Yet, it's set back off the road so you don't hear the traffic. The hotel staff is warm, friendly, and extremely helpful/knowledgable. Check in... More

The Prince Center is on the Calvin College campus. It is surrounded by paths into beautiful surrounding nature sites. The hotel reminds me of being in college a bit (layout) but that did not take away from the facility. The rooms which are clean and spacious and the sink is outside of the shower area.

A great innovation by Calvin College to provide a place next to campus for parents and general visitors. Breakfast is fantastic and complimentary coffee and tea throughout the day. Friendly complimentary airport drop and pick up as well provided. Clean comfortable rooms. It was nice to see Trip Advisor stickers already there.
