The original part of the Amway Grand Hotel in Grand Rapids is just over 100 years old. It underwent extensive renovation in the late '70s, and obviously efforts have continued to keep the hotel in great shape. Somehow this hotel has retained the character and charm it had 100 years ago, and it has managed to seem well-maintained. Considering how... More

The Amway Grand is a beautiful building with many dining/bar options right on the property. The room my wife and I had was furnished quite nicely and was fairly roomy. The bedding was high-quality. Sounds good -right? There were 3 things that really bugged me though: 1. The bathroom was way too small for 2 people at the same time.... More

The hotel is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in. I have traveled all over the world and for the midwest this hotel is spectacular. Everything about this place is first class. I can not find one negative comment to make from the cleanliness of the rooms, hallways, common areas, spa, pool. The shopping is diverse... More

Grand old hotel - we were attending a conference. Parking across the street, expensive and not so handy, but typical downtown hotel experience - 2 nights. If you need access to your car don't do valet park. Lots of food and shops in the hotel. Huge convention facilities. Short walk to the river and a nice walking path. Easy walking... More

We had a wonderful room, it was a corner room with views down 2 sides of the River, the Gerald Ford Museum and downtown buildings. We stayed in the tower of the Amway Grand. Within the hotel is the old lobby of the Pantlind Hotel. My daughter took me there for my birthday to see Lily Tomlin at the Devos... More

This past weekend my husband and i celebrated our anniversary at the Amway Grand Plaza hotel in Grand Rapids, MI. What a very lovely time! This is what a "Grand" hotel should be like. Upon arrival, the valet and staff were very polite, efficient and helpful. Check-in was a breeze and we were pleasantly surprised to discover that we had... More

The hotel is beautiful! Our room was amazing! I can't think of one negative thing about this hotel. They even have a "quiet time" for the hotel between midnight and 6am. We never heard anything outside of our room during the night. It's within walking distance of restaurants in GR or there's enough inside the hotel for you to do,... More

Stayed here two nights while I was attending a function in the attached convention center. I was in the "tower" which is the newer part of the hotel. My room was attractively furnished in a modern style and I had a great view of the city and the river. There was a refrigerator in the room so I had the... More

We stayed at the Amway Grand for one night, while we moved our son into his room at Grand Valley State University. We stayed in the newly renovated section, on the 19th floor. The view of the river and downtown area was spectactular! It was especially beautiful at night, and a peaceful way to fall asleep, seeing the lights of... More

We spent four days at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids Mi where the 101st Airborne Association held it's annual reunion this year! It was the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam Conflict! I would like to commend the Hotel, it's staff and the people of Grand Rapids for an excellent time! From...
