We stayed at this hotel hoping for a superior experience, but didn’t have one. They don’t provide maid service, the spa is closed, and $35 a day for self parking on top of the already high room rates is ridiculous. They didn’t even apologize for the fact there was no maid service! Next time I’ll stay out of downtown and just come in as needed.

The JW Marriott Grand Rapids is just a fabulous property. The views of my old home town (and Sacred Heart Church) were great for a hometown boy revisiting the (old) “Furinutre City!” Great food from breakfast to dinner. Services across all aspects of the hotel are too notch! There’s no other option for us in GR. Thank you for a great Christmas meal and experience in the igloo! All around, one of the best Christmas’ ever in Grand Rapids at your property.

I have the Marriott gold status but it didn’t seem like it did anything for me for this property. Checked in around 9PM. I asked for an upgrade, and although I verified better rooms available on the website before I walked in, the front desk tells me there was nothing available to upgrade. I showed him my phone and the plenty of rooms available on that Tuesday night, and he looked like I caught him in the lie. Then he said he can only put me on a higher floor. What a gyp. Room with lounge access and there was no food or even breakfast. Walked out with maybe a few cans of ginger ale during my stay. Total waste of money. At least they gave me late gold status check out at 2pm, but no advantage because we had to leave upon regular time check out. No extra points or welcome gift upon check in! These are things that they advertise! I think the room was comfortable but c’mon what is the point of having status with Bonvoy if you can’t even use it! Disappointing.

We came here for a James Taylor and Jackson Browne concert. Met good friends from TX and us from Nola. Staff has great in every interaction. We had access to the concierge lounge which really was phenomenal. Cocktails and apps each night. Maggie and Victoria were great hosts. Food is free and you pay for drinks but the prices are reasonable. Hotel is centrally located and an easy walk to many local establishments. This town was so friendly and the JW was the best spot for home base.

I work at this hotel and thought I would treat me and my spouse to a nice stay at the hotel I worked at since she just received a promotion at work and there is a big Halloween party at the hotel.😁 We like Halloween more than all the other holidays combined When we pulled in I informed the valet we were celebrating my wife's promotion.We received a hearty congrats from the valet and on we went our way. 🐰Strike one- employees are trained to bestow extras onto guests at every possible opportunity it's called the 1% philosophy, this is supposed to be a five star hotel after all. ✨We then checked in made our way to our room. Upon entering my spouse noticed the tv was not working. We called at your service they said somebody would be up shortly. After an hour we called again, an apology and then the guy showed up. He was unable to fix the TV and stated he would return with a new cable box. 😎We ordered food from room service, it was decent not great 100bux for a couple of burgers from what I remember. We then headed out for about 4hours. When we returned the television was still non-functional. We ended up having to move rooms at 1:30am.😊 No comps, no apologies. No usb ports in rooms. Ice machine wasn't working on our floor, no sign stating as much. Ordered room service for breakfast, another 100bux and I would rather have eaten at McDonalds. 🤡No hot tub, no sauna, no spa. I was excited to show off the 5star hotel experience to my spouse and now she never wants to stay there again. 😊Even informed the assistant executive director of the hotel of our experience and zero comps were offered. This review will stay up until my spouse is willing to stay at the hotel. I'm very disappointed with my employer, I've worked in hospitality on and off for 26 years and have never had this kind of treatment from any establishment I have stayed at.🥳 I spent over 1000 dollars at the hotel in one night and have been treated better at motel 6. On a positive note the Halloween party was a good time.😊 Edit- I guess it is against company policy to leave less than favorable reviews if you use your employee discount at the hotel and receive poor service as was explained to me by executive management team members today including HR. I would like to formally apologize for being honest about my experience at the hotel. 😊We in fact had a really special night and look forward to pouring more money into my employers pockets in the future. 😊Thank you for the amazing experience JW Marriott. 😊And thank you for allowing me to see the benefits of moving hotel rooms in the middle of the night.😊 The food is also better than McDonalds. Love, light and blessings upon your being😇

Probably the nicest Marriott property I have stayed at. Located on the river in downtown Grand Rapids. Room views of the river or the downtown. Security card access to get to rooms. Friendly front desk staff. Good food options in or near hotel. Restrooms too far away from meeting rooms.

in the back of each elevator there was a sign stating no more than 2 people or a family unit in elevator at a time. There was no sign outside by the elevator button. When people wanted to come in with me I had to say "no". I was given horrible looks and spoken to with words I cannot print here. I complained to the front desk staff 4 times over days. Each time I was told they would look into that and "I am sorry that happened." Nothing was done. Currently Michigan is one of 5 states with covid #s increasing. The hotel does have a policy of no room cleaning during your stay which is good We asked for extra towels and they were quickly placed by our door. Rooms are dated without good technology plugins. Location is wonderful.Parking garage can be accessed by enclosed breezeway.(2nd floor) Parking is expensive($35/24 hours).

Disappointed. New but very poorly located. Road and Bar scene noise was horrible. No sleeping here. Still no room cleaning. I guess everyone will have an excuse for no service forever. Way over priced too. Breakfast good. Parking lot very tight and $30 a day awfully steep 6GR

Overall: A decent JW that is showing its age definitely needs a renovation. And service was hit and miss. Arrival: arrived by taxi from the airport. Doormen ignored us completely. Check in: Younger Asian woman who was just doing the minimum. Struggled to pull up our reservation and then claimed the reservation was only for 1 night. I had to show her the printed confirmation showing 4 nights before she “found” the remaining nights in the system. Also, no concept of acknowledging status and no offer of bonus points or gift… Room: We had tried to use suite night upgrades but our request was not accepted. We asked for an upgraded room, and received a nice corner room 2204. Large, panoramic windows overlooking the Grand River. Carpet was stained, some walls had stains, furniture was old. Standard items in room- king size bed, mini-refrigerator, Keurig coffee maker, mid-sized LG TV, side chair, chaise lounge. In room safe was malfunctioning, constantly beeping. Had to call maintenance, and all he could do was silence the safe by taking out the internal batteries. Bed: Mediocre worn bed, flattened pillows, middle of the road linens. Bathroom: Horrible lighting but nice soaking tub with separate shower. Concierge lounge: Amazingly even during the COVID-19 pandemic, the lounge was serving evening hors d'oeuvres but wit zero social distancing and crowded. Was too dangerous from a COVID-19 perspective for us to take advantage of the evening snacks. Lounge provided free water and sodas. In the mornings, we visited the lounge for coffee, and we noticed it was not well cared for. Leftovers from the night before were strewn about, trash not emptied, coffee machine out of milk… Restaurants on site: (1) Little French place in the lobby (see separate review of Margaux). $20 voucher for breakfast if you have status. Nearly all breakfast items are at $20 on the menu. (2) Starbucks. Overall service: appeared short-staffed and personnel were a bit stressed and not providing normal levels of service for a JW Marriott. Gym and pool: Very small gym and pool. Steam room is broken and being eliminated. Tips and other info: This JW is located centrally in downtown Grand Rapids. (1) Uber/Taxi from the airport runs $40-55. (2) There’s a little basement liquor store across the street (cash only). (3) Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. (4) DeVoss concert hall is an easy walk if you want to take in a performance. If you do, go to the will call window to purchase tickets without Ticketmaster processing fees. We enjoyed a nice symphony and tickets were only $18 per person purchased directly at the window. About my review: I base my reviews on actual experience not what could be. And I base my reviews on having travelled extensively having seen the spectrum from superb to dismal.
