Downtown Grand Rapids is such a beautiful city with so many things to do, places to eat, etc. The only problem is that staying downtown is rather pricey. There are not that many hotels to chose from to begin with. So I was ecstatic when I found a great rate on Hotwire for the Holiday Inn downtown. It's always risky on Hotwire because you don't know the name of the hotel until after you book, but it worked out this time!!
What a great hotel! I think it gets overshadowed by the the Amway and the Marriot, but it was beautiful, comfortable, and in a great location with a great view. After I booked my room I called the hotel to upgrade to a corner room. I had read on reviews that they were larger and had great views. When we checked in everything was in order and they even remembered to wish us a happy anniversary. The rooms are very modern looking. We had a great view of the city. The bed was comfortable. It was wonderful!!
We ate downtown and saw a show at Devos Hall and walked a very short distance to each location. Grand Rapids is such a nice city that it's worth it just to walk around and enjoy.
So if you are looking for a great place to stay in downtown GR, don't forget to think about this hotel. Sure you can pay $200 plus to stay at the other hotels, but you can get about the same thing, in a great location, for a lot cheaper. It even has free parking which is unheard of for downtown hotels.
Thanks for making our 25 anniversary a great night.
PS - If your not willing to risk hotwire, their normal rates are still a lot lower than the others.
