First let me tell you my husband and I are both very picky where we stay with or without the kids and I am always trying to find the best deal by spending hours looking up the promo codes, discount codes, priceline, expedia trip advisor ect.....you get my point......Well I went to see what I could find with my ChoiceHotel.com Reward points ( not many points) I found this hotel and was a little iffy when I saw the pictures of the hotel and so was my husband lol just being honest! Oh and we were in for it with the kids because there is not a pool,( BUT that is not an issue because you are surrounded by 100s of things to do in Grand Rapids and beyond! ) Also I didn't have to pay for a room because I had the points!!
YAY!! Our very first free stay at a hotel from points!!! How cool!! We finally get there after a 2 hour trip in the car with our 5 and 11 year old boys, I get out and go check in and right away Erin introduced herself and made me feel like I was at RITZ HOTEL even though I have never been there but hear they are DIVINE!! Have their rewards card no matter how long or how many points you get a bottle of water per person and a pack of cookies! Now I seem a little excited over this, but only because
A. It's our first free stay somewhere for barely any points and rooms start at $64 w/out points!!
B. SO FAR SO GOOD!!!
C. This is a 2 star-I've had my share of 3-5 star hotels and NEVER got this kind of treatment!
So as I am checking in I am looking around and behind me is a beautiful lobby with a fire place and comfy couches, fresh coffee, and I couldn't believe it, a managers reception area with fresh food and for everyone! The only time we have been to a managers reception was when we stayed at a hotel with one on a special floor and a nice room and paid extra to have those things.... They had hot dogs, buns, chili, cheese, chips, punch, fruit, and the kids loved it! Now...The ROOM!!! PRAISE THE LORD!! The BED - BEST BED I HAVE EVER LAID IN!! actually BEST BED WE HAVE EVER LAID IN!!! I cannot begin to tell you just how comfortable this bed was, from the mattress to the pillows, the sheets the blanket, I want to lay in it right now just talking about it!! Let me remind you that it was iffy to even come stay at this hotel before and even on the way here lol but God is good and he Blessed us with a very nice place to rest our heads (before picking up our lovely 96 year old NANA at the airport only a few miles from the hotel)
Anyways we slept GREAT (it was hard to get out of bed lol ) we go down to breakfast, which even though there was quite a crowd, the workers were on it!! There was plenty of anything and everything was fresh, they had scrambled eggs, sausages, yogurt, donuts, muffins, waffles, you name it I bet they had it!! And it was complimentary to EVERYONE staying at the hotel! The breakfast scored VERY HIGH with the kids and that's always a plus!
So all and all this was one of the best hotels especially for the price and area and I recommend it to business , family, solo, group, and even couples that are traveling! This hotel was everything you want and need in a hotel... CLEAN, AMAZING SERVICE, COMFORTABLE, AFFORDABLE, CONVIENIENT, KID FRIENDLY, PET FRIENDLY, AND THEY OFFER COMPLIMENTARY MANAGERS RECEPTION, BREAKFAST, WIFI, AND SHUTTLE SERVICE!! SO IF YOU ARE FELLING IFFY ABOUT THIS HOTEL....YOU WILL BE MISSING OUT ON ONE OF THE BEST STAYS YOU HAVE PROBABLY HAD IN A WHILE.
Oh and if you have a really nice friendly young lady Erin check you in or out, tell her about this review! I have read reviews on this site but this is my first written review on here and it is because it is well deserved!! HAVE A BLESSED STAY!!! Thanks for reading my first review!!
