I was recently in GR to attend to my sister who had been ill. I needed a hotel close to her rehab and selected City Flats. From the moment I called to enquire (website is a little funky) about rooms I was sold. Jason went out of his way to assist me in selecting room. Hotel is in a great... More

This hotel was very modern and had a great location. The staff was friendly but seemed really unorganized. When checking in the employee said please have a seat and I'll see if your room Is ready. After waiting for a half hour, I had to get back in line and she still hadn't checked to see if the room was... More

We really enjoyed our brief stay at City Flats Hotel. Check in was quick and simple, and the staff very friendly. We enjoyed the modern accommodations, especially the super comfy bed. The bathroom has a sliding door which looks really cool, but affords little privacy. There are many restaurants and bars withing walking distance - we loved Hop Cat. The... More

I stayed at CityFlats hotel for a weekend and was, overall, satisfied with the space. Pros: Good location in Grand Rapids for pretty much any of your downtown needs-- close to the best restaurants, coffee shops, and bars in the city. Parking is in a structure that is connected to the hotel, which is expensive but safe and mostly convenient.... More

First time in town on a business trip. Basic restaurant and basic rooms. Lighting in rooms is strange and indirect. Huge shower. Had hot water in toilet! Lighting not good for shaving. Big time TV connections. Small clothes closet. Bed was comfortable but I sensed it's time for a new mattress. Top floor is way too bright for breakfast as... 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.
