This hotel is in a wonderful downtown location in Michigan's best large city--Grand Rapids is very clean, safe, charming, and filled with friendly people, restaurants, art, and activities and interesting buildings. Most first-time visitors are surprised at the number of outdoor sculptures and installations in Grand Rapids,and the hotel is across the street from a beautiful river front park. The hotel is right next to the GR Public Museum, across the street from the Gerald Ford Museum & Library, one block to Grand Valley State University's downtown campus. It is also only a one block stroll over the river to downtown Grand Rapids with all the wonderful restaurants, attractions, and venues including the Van Andel Arena and the De Vos Center. Spectrum Health, a huge medical complex on Michigan Avenue is only six or eight blocks from this hotel. I wondered why the hotel was full on a weekend until I looked online and discovered 47 reported events scheduled for Friday night downtown. This hotel is also very easily accessed from the Pearl St. exit off the freeway--parking is also free, unlike most other downtown hotels. The room was quite satisfactory--comfortable, very clean, and quiet. The staff I encountered were all friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant located in the lobby if you want to eat in the hotel, but there are dozens of restaurants located within 2-3 blocks. The pool is rather small, but I'm sure that kids would be perfectly happy. There is also an exercise room with various machines that is also on the small side. If you want to be able to stay downtown and walk instead of drive, this hotel is the least expensive downtown hotel I could find, and I would definitely stay here again when visiting Grand Rapids.
