JW Marriott modern comfy rooms nice bar

We came for a wedding reception at the GRAM. Location of JWM was superb even in mid-winter a short block away. King size bed was SOO comfy and loved the view from the 16th floor, awesome bathroom, and fast elevators too. The bar was a nice spot to hang out for an evening of conversation, too. Nice view of the river!

just one night

we arrived in mid afternoon with the intent of just seeing downtown grand rapids and we were not let down. the hotel is right in the center of this very walkable city on the river. the views from the room were awesome. the room was very fancy and clean. the bathrooms were to die for. downtown was great. we ate within a block of the hotel at "the BOB" and it was very good, lively and relaxed. after dinner we went back to the room and found out the prices for liquor in the minibar were way too high but on the walk back from dinner we saw there was a liquor store right across the street from the hotel. that was a much better option. drinks in the room, beautiful night time views of the downtown, great beds and linens.... no coffee in the lobby in the morning - had to buy from their starbucks store was my only complaint ( i don't like starbucks)

Downtown G.R. rocks!

One of the great centerpieces in Grand Rapids. High class but friendly and comfortable. Spotless. Great location with wonderful view of the river and downtown. Easy walking to just about wherever you want to go in downtown Grand Rapids.

Best Hotel in Grand Rapids

The JW is by far the nicest hotel to stay at in Grand Rapids. Location is convenient, easy self park or valet and great views of the river. I highly suggest paying for a river view, it's worth it. The room rate is slightly higher than alternatives nearby but worth it when you compare the two.
