I stay at the Prince CC whenever in Grand Rapids for business and pleasure, which is fairly often. The service, facilities, and amenities are first rate. The grounds and common areas are spacious and inviting. I wouldn't stay anywhere else and recommend it highly.

Peaceful. Immaculate. Efficient. Exceeded my wildest expectations! Everything about this facility and its staff can be summed up in one word: EXCELLENCE. From the moment the shuttle driver met me at the airport, to the moment I had to leave, I was treated like royalty--and I believe all 160 of us at our 4-day conference felt the same. Morning, noon...

I stayed here for 2 days for a conference, and everything was perfect. The center's shuttle picked me and dropped me off promptly for my flights, and the hotel rooms were clean with comfortable beds. The front desk people were very helpful and solicitous, and breakfast was good and plentiful. There is a nice area with cafe type tables and... More

We stayed for one night following a wedding at the Meijer gardens. The staff was very nice and the room was clean, quiet and comfortable, and the rate we got was much better than most of the other hotels in the area. I would definitely stay there again if I was in the area.

Very well situated, a short walk from the Calvin College campus, with excellent meeting rooms, cordial and attentive staff, and guest rooms supplied with every amenity. And there's a beautiful nature preserve just behind the Prince Conference Center.

Prince Center not only has awesome rooms and views and great, but every nook and crook has comfy chairs and a very relaxed atmosphere. It's more than just a typical conference center. It's a space designed for getting together with others in a way that most hotels don't even come close to. This would be a great place for any... More

The hotel is very quiet and comfortable. Your car is literally steps from the front entrance. Snacks are available in the breakfast area 24/7 (coffee, tea, snack mix, cookies, fruit and doughnuts). It is in a very safe location. Easy access to shopping, restaurants and downtown Grand Rapids. Very friendly staff.
