Nice Location

Stayed in a room close to elevators, a bit noisey! Other than that very nice. The Direct TV had some issues that night. Maybe weather? Nice location though, easy to get in and out.

Kid Rock Concert Package

The hotel has an excellent location in downtown Grand Rapids walking distance from the BOB(Big Old Building) which contains many bars and dining experiences and then right next store to the Van Andel concert venue. In fact you can even walk the sky walk from the hotel to the concert venue so we did not even have be outside on the way back to the hotel.

My first impression of Grand Rapids was a good one!

This hotel is clearly geared toward the weary business traveler who must still remain active while on the road. You get a comfortable bed with lots of soft pillows and the bathroom was bigger than my bathroom at home. More importantly, internet access was available in both wired and wireless flavors, with no additional fees! The desk in the room had ports for power, ethernet and even audio/video, so I could use the room's flat panel TV as a giant computer monitor...such a thoughtful touch!

Close to downtown

Right in the middle of everything, easy reasonable parking ($14 NIGHT), close to all the colleges in the downtown area. Rooms small but clean. Added bonus it's walking distance (5 BLOCKS) to Founders Brewery, and the beer is FABULOUS! Overpriced at $200 a night, no complimentary breakfast. I could get a room cheaper in downtown Chicago.

Perfect Downtown location

Spent two nights during GVSU graduation ceremony. Perfect location for any downtown events. Could walk to Van Andel without ever going outdoors. Reasonably priced compared to other downtown locations. Room was OK - staff was outstanding.

Girls shopping trip

Excellent location!! Close to restaurants & downtown area...only drawback was parking garage was full and had to park block away & walk back to hotel. Wasn't too bad when checking in, but leaving & carrying all the luggage was a pain...
