Our visit at the Prince Conference Center with our three school age children was absolutely great. The rooms were very clean but simple; your typical hotel room. What we loved (so many things here...) were the front desk staff, who went above and beyond for us. I had asked a question (non-hotel related) that the young man at the front... More

This hotel is perfectly adequate. The breakfast area is especially large and nice. If you are very tall, you will probably find the shower too short. Also, this is not a good place to get a lot of rest. Many of the guests got up very early and were noisy in the hallway. Then, by 8:30 or 9am, the maids... More

This was a first time experience. We waited at the front desk a few minutes before being welcomed to check in, but other than that, all went smoothly. Our room was on the top floor of 3. The windows faced a serene setting of woods and trees. The room was very quiet, plain, but with comfortable beds and pillows. It... More

We had a family wedding in Grand Rapids, and most of the family/guests were from out of town. We looked for a hotel that was reasonable to accommodate all of us - and the Prince looked like the best option... it was! The service is professional, helpful, and friendly. The rooms were simple, but very clean and just what we... More

First choice without question. Nothing but praise for every feature of this facility. Stayed here 5 times. Equally excellent each time! Great staff, gracious and cordial. Convenient shuttle service to and from the airport as well. Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms along with excellent amenities. Very close to multiple dining choices.

The Prince Center is a delightful place to stay, from the first greeting by the staff to the final checkout. The rooms are comfortable, the atmosphere pleasant, and the breakfast and all-day coffee are delicious.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on a recent visit (this was my second time) and found the experience quite nice. The room was modern, clean and the beds were reasonably comfortable.

This is the second time I've stayed here and once again, the room was immaculate. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast far exceeds any expectations-fresh fruit, coffee, tea, juices, sausage gravy, biscuits, eggs, etc. Yes, excellent breakfast that's included. Conference room large and very well climate controlled. I look forward to staying here again.
