Recent guest reviews

My friends were upgraded for their wedding which was such a thoughtful thing for the newlyweds!

Good location. Clean room. Nice desk staff. Only low was a overly aggressive door staff to get in at night. I've stayed at far nicer hotels without being blocked outside in the rain to produce my room key! It could have been because of a graduation weekend. I'm 49 not 21

The hotel was nice - but if you book with a third party there isn't much the hotel can do if something goes wrong. I think I will be more aware of polices for hotel and third party bookings before staying at the hotel or using the third party again.

good location, too expensive very clean parking was a challenge staff was very good

My wife and I stayed here recently and could not have been more pleased. Everything about this hotel meet our exceeded our expectations, but the location was what sealed it for us. So close to everything downtown, including the B.O.B.(right across the street) and many great restaurants all within a short walk. Overnight parking cost us 16 dollars, but it is in a parking garage and not on the street. Overall if you want to see the best of downtown thus would make an excellent choice.

Had a lot of good options for food close by, along with entertainment.

Stayed during Art Prize. Perfect location downtown, right across from the B.O.B. Room was ready early and we got right in. Weren't in the room much, but it worked out great.

We came for a fun weekend. We were out most of the day/night but the bed/room was nice!

Clean, friendly staff and walking distance from many must see places in Grand Rapids!

Loved the skywalk connecting to theatre! Valet was very quick and hospitable. There were 4 of us in a large suite. They have a max of 3 on the internet at one time so one could never get on. When calling front desk, they did not know what to do, but the girl did ask and referred me to a phone number with an automated recording. About 10 configurations needed to do the fix. Was WAY too tired, and it sounded WAY too complicated. So, I just went to bed!

It was great, close to downtown. Could walk every where.

Went to Grand Rapids on a whim stayed at the Courtyard downtown great location for walking to founders hop cat as well as other points of interest in downtown Grand Rapids would definitely stay again

We had a great experience, great location in the city. Very clean hotel and spacious rooms. The staff at the hotel was very helpful when needed and friendly. We usually stay at the Amway Grand we decided to try the Marriott. We would stay here again!

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.

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.

Prefect location for night life. Big pool, hot tub. The price is great for what you get.

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!

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.

The experience was fine, but people checking in as walk ins received the same room rate I dd from booking through this app what's the point in using your service if that's the case?

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.
