The venue at City Flats for the wedding was extraordinary!! The hotel was ok. Parking for both was atrocious!!!! We stayed the night before the wedding and the night after. The hotel was clean but somewhat difficult to get traverse. The parking situation was HORRIBLE!! My 83 year old mother also stayed and it was very difficult for her. She... More

Great city location, friendly staff, affordable rate--yes! Easy walking to restaurants, cafes, museums, etc. We arrived late and the woman at the front desk helpfully recommended a gem of a wine bar a few blocks away. Bed was super comfortable. For the holiday weekend, rates were a lot lower than other what we thought were similar properties (170s vs 300s).... More

When I travel I try to find unique places that fit within my budget - outside of the standard Hampton Inns. CityFlats was stretching my budget but definitely worth it! It is a very unique hotel and all of the rooms are different with higher end amenities and features. There is a lounge on site that has some very good... More

City Flats Hotel has become our go-to place to stay in Grand Rapids, which we try and visit a couple of times a year. We prefer a smaller hotel feel and this place offers that quaint boutique hotel feel. The location is outstanding in the downtown area within walking distance of restaurants and bars.

Was visiting for a concert in early June. After looking into several locations I came to a conclusion, there were several events going on that weekend (Michigan highschool track and field championships, 47th Festival of the Arts & the 21 Pilots concert ((not the concert we were going to)) so hotels were at a premium. Online wise, the only name... More

First of all... This is not our first stay at a "City Flats Hotel". We stayed more than once at the Holland location- we really liked the "Different" look of the Holland hotel rooms and the staff was very friendly etc,,,, But enough about the "GOOD" location and on to the Grand Rapids location- Rooms were terribly small, I mean...

Hi Erik, I am very sorry to hear about your experience at our Grand Rapids location. With that location, our rooms are designed within an original downtown building so the lighting and size of the rooms are going to vary more than our Holland location. I hope you give our Grand Rapids location another chance as we are adding more... More

I was here at a one day conference and I enjoyed my stay. The rooms are very modern; in fact, if you must have carpet you would not like this hotel. Modern illuminated lighting, platform type beds, sliding bathroom doors and clear glass showers are the type of modern amenities in the room. I had a double and it was... More

If Ikea were a hotel, this would be it! Modern, eco-friendly materials, simple and comfortable. Right in the middle of the haps downtown. Check in was quick and easy, staff young, friendly and efficient. Room (on the top floor) had no view to brag about, but made up for it with super high ceilings, clean lines and great use of...
