My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott downtown Grand Rapids for one night on NYE 2016. We chose this hotel based on location, price, and that it was part of a NYE package. Overall, the property is fine. Location is perfect...within walking distance to Van Andel Arena, The BOB, and many downtown restaurants, bars, etc. The hotel...

The location is good, but you will pay Manhattan prices for that. They have been doing extensive renovations here for the past year; we stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. It was okay -- even for a Courtyard, I found the finishes and furnishings a bit "cheap" feeling. We stayed here for convenience and we did get convenience....

I stayed at the Courtyard Grand Rapids during a recent trip to the city and enjoyed my stay there. There is no full restaurant on site but the bistro had a decent menu and the food was good at a reasonable price. The location is excellent, allowing quick access to many downtown spots and within 15-20 minutes of the airport....

Dear markabaddon- Thank you for staying with us recently and taking the time to share your feedback. We're happy to hear you had a pleasant stay and appreciate your compliments regarding our staff. The Bistro actually is a full service restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, though the menu is limited. In addition, we have our coffee bar near the...

I've avoided this hotel because it is priced at a 50% premium to every other property I've found in Grand Rapids and it never has rooms available at my company's special rate. I splurged this time because we were visiting friends who live in the condos above the hotel. Despite being the most expensive Courtyard I've seen outside New York...

We are conveniently located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids close to major entertainment venues, restaurants and the convention center, all connected via the incredible skywalk that is air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter....

The hotel is nicely situated to be walking distance to plenty of dining. Attending a training session with about 20 colleagues and the catering was outstanding with very great tasting food!!! Very nice rooms and quiet during my stay.

Nice and clean, skywalks, view... but so noisy ! Easy to hear people talking in hall and arguing next door! My favorite downtown place is Hampton inn on Michigan street since it's newer and more soundproof with extra free benefits like breakfast and parking ... this hotel charges $16 -25 for parking, no breakfast. Employees were very helpful.

I stayed here this week on business for the 2nd time. I was impressed last time and this visit was no different. The front desk staff were very friendly and informed me that they were putting me in one of their newly remodeled rooms. They told I was one of the first people to get to stay in it. The...

The hotelstaff is great. Been staying here 50 nights/year for 13 years now. The hotel offers valet parking, room service, and a full bar with a great bartender. The location is convenient to walk to all of the amenities that downtown GR has to offer and it's easy to get to the major highways. It's also $50-100 cheaper per night...

We stayed for Halloween. The hotel is average, for the price I would stay at the Amway next time. I went with Courtyard because I have Silver Elite status, but this doesn't give you anything.

Great location for going to the B.O.B., downtown festivals, museums and concerts at the Van Andel arena. I really dislike the way the self parking works and the where the parking garage is located though but would still stay there again.
