We recently attended a GVSU donor event there as we had last year at this time. First class facility and event. Even the food was good. I ordered a special vegan entry and was shocked at the wonderful presentation and quality. I acknowledged same to the waitress hoping the word got to the chef. We look forward to next year's affair.

This center is situated in downtown Grand Rapids in the Art Fest district and is located such that you're close to everything you want to be. Beautiful facility, well done, and well-appointed.

It always feels like a privilege to see a show here. The volunteers are so kind and always friendly. Need more stalls in the womens restroom though.

We regularly attend events at the DeVos Performing Arts Center. The facility is great, the staff who works there is really friendly, and the overall experience is superb. The only thing I wish were better is the restrooms - too small and not well laid out.

Recently saw Cirque Mechanics with the Grand Rapids Orchestra at DeVos performance Hall. The show was awesome. The hall was great. Modern and functional with classic performance theater style seating arraignment. We sat mezzanine and had an awesome view. The music was balanced perfectly and the acoustics superb. Entry and egress was easy although the theater was packed. The Performance Hall is connected to the DeVos Place conference center which was larger than I had imagined. The whole facility had awesome views of the (currently flooded) Grand River. Parking was abundant.
Definitely would attend another concert/show there anytime.
