Planned an overnight stay for a concert. Arrived around check in time (4:00 p.m.) and the valet service was quite busy. I removed our bags and waited for my husband and then we entered the hotel and waited for about 10 minutes for check in. Super friendly staff at the check in counter. Clear directions to the elevator and our... More

So we went on a staycation sort of and just ended up driving all over the Midwest and for one of the nights ended up at the Amway Grand. There was a bit of confusion at the front desk about my reservation (I made the reservation on the road about a hour or so before arrival) so my reservation wasn't... More

I had never been to Grand Rapids so I really knew nothing about hotel options there and Amway looked to be one of the best. i reserved through their own website. it was not cheap! Which was totally fine, but I expected more. i just found it old and worn. I arrived later than i expected and the front desk... More

My three teenage children and I stayed here this past week-end for just a one-night stay. It's a beautiful hotel...very elegant and well-appointed. We stayed in the "older" section of the hotel in a junior suite which was large enough for the four of us. The suite included a king-size bed, full-size sofa sleeper and they also brought in a...

This was my second visit to the Amway Grand. That's usually a good sign! I made sure to book my room in the historic wing. The room was huge, with high ceilings. I got lucky and had a view of the river. Last time, they had a nice, mid-priced restaurant with a great lunch buffet. Unfortunately, that has been replaced... More

I've stayed many times at the. Amway and enjoyed each stay! Perfect walking distance to everything fun downtown, priced very well for amenities you get. Loved the sports bar and the appetizers were delish

This is truly a Grand Hotel. Lovely decor, impeccable service, sweet rooms. I love the rooms with a view of the river and the Gerald Ford Museum, which you should definitely visit also. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Dave, one of the custodian/housekeeping attendants, noticed us peeping around at some of the ballrooms and meeting rooms, and he... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Amway Grand 3 times now and most recently we just went there for one night just because we enjoy the hotel, its restaurants and bars. Some of the rooms are small so try and book an online package that provides a "Superior King". These rooms are very large and have sitting areas;... More

We stayed at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel when in Grand Rapids for a wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay! The lobby in the Pantlind Wing is beautiful! We also enjoyed our room--so much so that we returned a few days later on our way back to Chicago from Mackinac Island! That is about the best recommendation that we can... More

Elida O, Manager at Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Debbie, I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us so much that you came back a few days later! I too enjoy our beautiful lobby in the Pantlind wing, with the gorgeous sunburst and fountain, especially around the winter holiday time when we have a big Christmas tree in the lobby. Be sure to come back... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When does the hotel become the destination? When the moment you walk through the door, you feel as if you've been transported - by the elegance, the details, and the gracious service. When your every expectation of what a hotel can be is exceeded. Welcome to the Amway Grand Plaza, where every stay is marked by a memorable moment. Whether it's a stroll through the Pantlind Lobby, the great view from one of our Glass Tower rooms, the classical architecture, or your first bite of one of our signature entrees. The Amway Grand Plaza is much more than a hotel. It's a true destination. ... more   less
