“Great Hotel for families”
Reviewed April 11, 2007

Stayed at The Amway over the Easter Weekend. Visiting relatives and also business. I went with my wife and 3 children of 8, 11 and 14 years We flew to Chicago from Manchester UK and then drove round. It really is an easy drive.
The hotel staff were excelllent and we stayed in the new tower on the 20th floor with tremendous views of the city. We had adjoining rooms and the beds are very comfortable. Although like all American hotels and homes they are still using sheets and blankets with covers (non-hygienic). I last used these at home when i was a little boy. In Europe we have been using duvets for over 35 years. They are warm, very comfy and easy. I would have thought that these would have been ideal for the US. I now sometimes take my own duvet to hotels in the US as they are so much more comfortable, Come on America try them out. However I see that the Marriott is now using them.
The bedrooms were very clean but the bed covers had stains and you never know when these were last cleaned. There is nothing spectacular about the rooms and there is no fridge or safe. The wireless internet didn't work on my Mac but the ethernet worked superbly.
We had breakfast in the hotel twice and it was superb. We had warmed Michigan syrup.. The service in the hotel was excellent although the young people who served us could have smiled a little more in the breakfast room. We used valet parking which at $25 per day was cheap for us at the present exchange rate but maybe not for Americans. However it was an excellent service with the boys sprinting across the car park to get the car. It was never more than 3 minutes between asking for the car and it being there. Very impressive.
The pool and health facilities are excellent and must have been refurbed recently. They were 10 times better than the Ritz Carlton in Chicago which was a huge disappointment.
We walked from the hotel on a skywalk to a Tapas restaurant and had an excellent meal out.
Overall a superb hotel with a great location and great service. We will definitley stay again.

Stayed April 2007

We stayed in the old side of the building at the Amway for 4 nights. The room was attractive and clean. Service was exemplary. The only issue was the bathroom which (while very clean and nicley refrubished) was small.

The hotel overall was fantastic - one of the best business hotels I have stayed in (in fact I we were on vacation - and the hotel is a great 'destination' itslef). Beautiful public areas, great sports bar and fantastic restaurents (we only tried Grill 1813 which was exceptional - but I met other guests who raved about the new Cygnus restaurent).

Also you can hop across the road to the Chophouse restuarant - one of the best steaks I have had in the US.

I do not know why Amway own a hotel - but they are doing a great job of it!

My fiance and I were looking to plan a wedding at the Amway Grand and we were given the cold shoulder by the Sales Department not just once but twice. Our 125 wedding guests will not be staying at the Amway Grand.

Stayed November 2006

We are a family with 5 kids ages 11 and under. We had booked adjoining rooms for one night. When we arrived at the rooms we found that they were not adjoining, but adjacent. Our bellboy, who was with us, contacted the front desk. They upgraded us to a suite with an adjoining room and we had access to a VIP room with food and bar, all comp. Needless to say we were very pleased.

We spent a lot of time in the pool/health club area. It has been upgraded recently and is very nice.

We will return again!!

  • Liked — The hotel is beautiful and the pool area was very nice.
  • Disliked — The initial mistake with our rooms not being adjoining
  • Tips/Secrets — Talk to Henry the bellboy. Very helpful young man.
