This was my fourth stay at this hotel Reviewing an excellent hotel is difficult since my expectations of a Marriott are high to begin with and this hotel met my expectations. The hotel is located downtown in walking distance to the convention center, the river, the arena and restaurants. You pay a little more for location and there is a... More

We stayed here the weekend of the Insane Inflatable 5k in Walker. It was a short drive to Walker and walking distance to several restaurants/bars in the downtown area. It was a bit pricey but we saved money by being able to walk. Our room was nice and clean but had an ugly view of the roof and parking garage... More

Nice location in the downtown area and close to plenty of bars and restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. Was in town for business meeting. We rented out a conference for 2 days. On the second day we spent most of the meeting trying to talk over what sounded like concrete drilling from the floor below. Not good. Nice parking... More

My kids and I stayed at courtyard Marriott in downtown Grand Rapids the location was just a short walk to the Devos convention center which was where the event we were there for was held. The hotel is near numerous restaurants and breweries which was great since we didn't rent a car. The hotel is maintained nicely and very clean.... More

Every employee that I interacted with was very helpful and very pleasant. The valet that parked my car noticed that I had left my cell phone charger in my car, so he brought it up to my room for me. The location is nice with several restaurants within walking distance. The fitness room was just so-so. They only have one... More

As is the case with most every Courtyard property, this hotel is comfortable with a new-ish lobby and restaurant. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The rooms are average for a Courtyard, but still comfortable. One the down side, the burger I ordered for room service was overdone by a good bit.

I've stayed at over 50 different Courtyards and this property is average. The elevators need some work and the halls are dimly lit. Nice lobby and bistro and a great location. Just needs a few minor upgrades to make it a nice property. Would I stay here again? Probably.

We recently stayed there while my grandson participated in a baseball tournament at the Art Van Sports Complex. The hotel staff is outstanding and did everything to make our stay a pleasant experience. The room was spacious and clean and very quiet. Parking was a problem, however, We returned late and parking was not available in their underground garage. We... More

I spent two nights at this property and the stay was enjoyable. Hotel is a typical Marriott Courtyard and is within walking distance of many of the downtown sites, including the museum area. That would include the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum. I chose valet parking as it was only a few dollars more than the self-park. There are several restaurants... More

I was in Grand Rapids, MI for business and stayed at this hotel. The hotel seems to be centrally located as it worked well for me since I was able to walk the 10 minutes to my meeting location. The rooms are somewhat dated but comfortable. Also, the lighting in the corridors seem a bit dim to me. This didn't... More
