I really enjoyed this Hotel. The pool was nice and clean and the rooms were great. I really liked the location and had fun with my family there. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quick getaway.

The lobby is pretty. The bell staff, front desk staff and housekeeping are all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is connected via walkway to the DeVos center which is convenient in the winter. Room was clean and had a good beds, pillows and bedding. Hotel is in great location to walk to Art Museum, the B.O.B, Grand Rapids Public... More

We took a weekend away and attended a hockey game. The hotel is in a great location, you can walk yo anything. The skywalk is great. The only issue we had was parking did trying to find our way in, the signs weren't very good at all, we ended up on the second floor up the stairwell.

I was really excited to stay at this hotel right downtown. Arrived late at night- to a very confusing parking situation. Valet directed me to their self park lot around the corner- pulled in and lot was full so had to call the front desk. Front desk directed me to another lot around the block- which resulted in me walking... More

I enjoyed our stay here. Our room was nice. The location was great. The fitness room is nice and opens at 5:00 am. Free wifi. The only thing that wasn't great was the chlorine in the hot tub. It made everyone cough and made our eyes burn. Maybe someone just added too much but it was like that Saturday night... More

We stayed here when in Grand Rapids for a hockey game at Van Andel arena. It is a perfect location given the covered skywalk from the hotel to the arena. The hotel is right extremely easy to get to from the freeway and there are many restaurants within walking distance. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable.... More

We stayed here for a weekend in the fall. I ran a race downtown, so it was a great location to choose... and cheaper than the JW. The room was very nice, but we had an accessible room which I probably would not do again -- there was an issue with puddling water from the shower, but that could've been... More

I was in town for a quick business trip so I didn't get to stay too long. This hotel appears to be located near all the "fun" stuff to do in this town. The room was set up with plenty of electrical outlets, USB ports and great wifi. I think they had a pool as well. Since I have bad... More
