Peaceful. Immaculate. Efficient. Exceeded my wildest expectations! Everything about this facility and its staff can be summed up in one word: EXCELLENCE. From the moment the shuttle driver met me at the airport, to the moment I had to leave, I was treated like royalty--and I believe all 160 of us at our 4-day conference felt the same. Morning, noon and night, the staff was gracious, friendly and accommodating, serving us well. I had to ship some items home, so they found a large box and even mailed it for me. We appreciated the hearty breakfasts, healthy meals, well-equipped workshop rooms, and comfortable beds--as well as the 3-mile walking trail around the property, the bright, open lobby and dining areas, where we were able to hold some of our meetings. We even indulged ourselves in the round-the-clock coffee/tea bar and freshly-baked cookies and muffins. I got to stay over an extra night and wished it could have been another week, there in the main floor suite--roomy, pristine, with gorgeous views--and completely wheelchair accessible. All in all, a grand experience in Grand Rapids. As soon as I can find an excuse to return to Michigan, I know where I'll stay--can hardly wait!
