“Fantastic downtown location. Skywalk to other hotels and venues in cold winter days.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for one night on a very quick trip to grand rapids. This courtyard is right downtown and you have lots of places you can eat and shop nearby as well as visit some local sights. Gerald Ford museum, van andle arena etc. Not as fancy of course as the jw Marriott nearby but you can take the skywalk to get there if you want to have a fancy meal or drink in their bar and restaurant. Parking is $14 to self park and $16 valet. Small market to buy food drinks and a bistro w food and alcohol as well.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for staying with us on your quick visit to Grand Rapids! I'm glad you took note of all the possibilities the skywalk provides - especially in the winter months - to check out all the nearby attractions without having to go outside or find other parking. I hope that you will stay with us again, perhaps for a longer visit so you can enjoy all our hotel's amenities! Thank you for posting this review.

At your service,

C. Kolehouse

Our Family came to watch our daughter run her first 1/2 marathon. The room was great and very close to the start and finish lines. It was a pleasure to stay at the Courtyard. Would stay with you again, gladly.

I stayed at the hotel as I had an event across the street at the B.O.B. The rooms are very, very clean, spacious, and comfortable. The "electronic" amenities are very good as well. USB plugs built into the entertainment system (to charge your cell phone, etc.) are very handy, and you can plug your laptop in (if you bring a VGA video cable) and watch on the TV. I didn't notice if an HDMI cable could be used (but you could ask). Overall the hotel provides a great experience. I feel that it may be a bit overpriced, but again, the rooms are very clean and comfortable and the location is great. You get what you pay for. It's the best location if you want to get to the Van Andel Arena, Rosa Parks Circle, Flanagan's, or, again, the B.O.B.

Room Tip: I have stayed at this hotel several times. Each on a different floor, with a different view. That...

If you are going to Grand Rapids, what better place to stay than a luxury hotel on the shores of the Grand Rapids! This hotel has a convenient parking garage across the street, many restaurants and shopping places within walking distance. The hotel itself is clean, luxurious and well-staffed. Nice amenities and good room service.

The price was reasonable when I stayed in August, 2012. A bargain really for the quality of the hotel.

Cons: the lobby, restaurant and general facilities are a bit on the smallish side for a grand hotel.

Room Tip: Marriott always has deals running. You may want to ask for a room facing the River.

Was blown away by the staff helpfulness as well as the food in the hotel Bistro. The room was nice and clean, with a very comfortable bed. It had all of the normal Courtyard perks, as well as a great location in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. There is a large variety of places to eat around as well. I was also very pleased with the exercise facilities in this property. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in this area.

This is a very nice hotel that is adorably priced in Grand Rapids. ThIe rooms are spacious and the hotel is very clean. It is connected via the walkway in downtown Grand Rapids which makes getting around in the winter very easy. The hotel has a connected garage which is reasonably priced. If you are looking for a quality mid-range hotel with a good location and comfort, this is it.

I recently stayed at the Courtyard to attend a conference at the Amway. I was pleasantly surprised how close the two hotels were to each other and were connected through tunnels so we didn't have to go out in the cold. It was also very close to restaurants nearby. The room was nice but smelled a bit musty because they just cleaned the carpets. Parking is $14 additional so that was a bit upsetting. Overall, nice stay but a bit pricey for one night.
