uncle's wedding anniversary

The room was roomy and comfy, but please note this hotel does not have roll-away cots.My husband and I wanted a king, with a cot for our daughter, but ended up with two queens. The registration staff was extremely apologetic. The little park adjacent to the building that celebrates Grand Rapids being the first to floridate its water was perfect for our 18 month old grandson to run around. The outside hotel bar was also extremely nice with very accommodating staff. Room service was timely and the meals were hot...a real plus. Our stay was a little pricey, but I would definitely stay there again.

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.

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.

Wonderful hotel!

WOW! I travel a lot and stay at some very nice hotels and resorts. This JW Marriott tops the list. Very nice room, great view, very well appointed, flat panel HD TV, marble bath, plenty of towels, great bed, quiet, and nicely decorated. All for a modest price! Definitely the best place to stay while in Grand Rapids. I've stayed at the Amway Grand and this is much nicer!

Great location in downtown GR (which is also very nice) with very good restaurants nearby: BBQ place named Zs has the best ribs, The Chop House (across from Amway Grand) is pricey, but fantastic food and even better service... worth the price!
