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.
