“Quick trip to GR”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

I usually stay in downtown Grand Rapids but on this particular trip, every hotel was booked for an art 3 week art show, so being a Hilton Diamond Honors member, I chose to stay near the airport.

The restaurant, The Spinnaker, was great for dinner. Had a nice and varied menu of surf, turf, and pasta. I ordered the Snow Crab Legs and when they came out in the shell, the waiter, Drew, offered to crack them for me! What a classy thing to do!

Unfortunately, breakfast was less than desirable. I used my Hilton Honors breakfast vouchers for the buffet and was disappointed. The oatmeal was lumpy and the eggs, what was left of them, were dried out and burned.

The rooms were quite comfortable and the AC unit cooled nicely. I asked for extra pillows and they were there when I checked in. Bed VERY comfy!

Work out area next to inside pool and rather small but was adequate.

All in all, the employees of this hotel make the stay worth it. They were all very pleasant and more than willing to make the extra effort.

Hi Sonja,

Thanks for choosing the Hilton on your venture away from downtown Grand Rapids. The Seafood at the Spinnaker is one of my favorites. I’ll make sure to let our Executive Chef know about the breakfast food quality. A terrific breakfast really is the best way to start the day. We’re happy you came to visit us and hopefully next time downtown is sold out again, you’ll come back to visit us.

The room had no air conditioning that worked. The refreg. scrap the floor everytime you opened it., the pipes were exposed and layed accross the bottom of the vanity to the sink and refrig in the hallway of the room. Not the best room I have had in a Hilton.

We always try to stay at the Airport Hilton when we return to GR. The staff makes us fell welcome and comfortable. The amenities are all right there; the pool, fitness center and internet, of course, but then there are the restaurant and lounge. The food is amazing! No reason to leave the property!

I stayed here on a business trip. The room was very nice, roomy, and clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There's no Executive Lounge, which is a drawback for Hilton Honor members. I did not see any benefits offered for Hilton Honor members. I am a Diamond VIP. I have the same amenities as a non member. The fitness room was very well equipped, but the Wi-Fi did not work in the fitness room. This is a big problem for me as I watch Netflix while I'm working out. The restaurant was excellent. The restaurant is one of the reasons I will return to this property. Excellent food and the sourdough bread is wonderful. The rooms could use some updating, but they are not bad at all. I will have to return in a few weeks to Grand Rapids. I plan to stay there again, but I hope for some improvements.

The Hotel over all was OK but the Bar Service was a real bad experience! The Bar tender was very rude and did not want to hear why my 20 year old son was in the bar with me and NOT drinking. (It was a Wedding Party)

The Hilton Grand Rapids is a nice place but certainly could use a facelift. I have been staying here every other week for the past 5 months. The facility is older and it is showing its age. The whirlpool jets are weak, the carpet is worn and crumpled throughout the facility and the key cards only work part of the time. Most of that is covered up though since the staff at the facility is great! The wait staff is very friendly in the lounge. The front desk staff is always willing to help and the maintenance team the couple of times I have needed it was right on the spot. Location is very convenient for both the leisure and business traveler since it is by the airport and on 28th Street which has all the restaurants, shopping, etc.

Room Tip: Request a room to the back side of the facility. Much quieter.
