Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emsalee Great stay, fabulous staff. Maybe a tiny bit pricey...
Stayed for a conference during June of 2014 and had a great stay. I slept wonderfully, the accommodations were really quite nice and clean. I have to say that the staff members were super kind and helpful.

Comfortable bed and great service. The room was very bright at night because there were no room darkening shades.

Front desk staff followed through on sending me a detailed room service food order receipt that I needed for my business expense report. It showed up in my email promptly and without need for my to call and inquire.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tiff18 Great hotel!
I really did love my stay here. The poor sleeping conditions would be due to the massive amount of light coming in from the hallway. I am someone who needs total darkness to sleep well so I would recommend that others bring a sleep mask if they have a similar need. Also if you like really firm pillows, bring your own.
Restaurant was great. LOVED the BBQ pizza and being able to order and bring it to my room was a huge plus. Beautiful view of the Grand River. Overall it was a great hotel. Would for sure stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BoydBoyd Full service urban hotel advantages
The lobby directs me directly to a well staffed and knowledgable front desk staff. They actually know how to tell me how to get on the free way and how to find 3 places to eat within walking distance.
The bar food service was great in terms of service/quality/choice and hours of operation. As a non-alcohol user, I felt welcomed and a part of the atmosphere. I was able to work there for 3 hours with all of the advantages of being out of my room, eat, sip coffee, glance at sports/news without loud sounds... in an inviting public space. Not Starbucks or home - but close (to Starbucks).
Only suggestions would be better discount and USA Today delivered at the door for Priority Club folks. Also, you ight put a sign up at the sliding-glass-door-room with the solid doors. Funny! (You could sign the glass and call it a work of art!)
Parking is great. Lots of carts that work. Two museums next door. Great staff! Third multi night stay for me next week for business. - Boyd

I totally enjoyed my stay at your hotel. The staff throughout the hotel was helpful in every areas. Our breakfast was both quick and delicious. I will make it a point to use your facility any time I need to spend a night in GR.

I was very impressed with the courtesy of the hotel staff and their understanding of my last minute arrangements and cancellations. The staff from the dinning lounge was also very courteous and she went out of her way to provide after hours services for me upon my asking. I will gladly book here again should the need arise for me to have to be in the area for the reasons that I was.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rhobo Staff is top-notch
I have stayed at this Holiday Inn three times now and each time it has been a very pleasant experience. I love the location for my needs.
What stood out this time was the time that Samantha took to try to get me rooms reserved for the next three months when I must return to Grand Rapids. I understand that this is a busy time of year but I was extremely disappointed that I could not reserve rooms with the government rate for my return requirement to serve on a jury. She did however suggest places nearby and I was able to reserve rooms there.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Great location for downtown Grand Rapids walking. Free parking is great. Just a bit expensive - but overall seemed to be a decent value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CWVBALL Good hotel
This hotel property is very clean and in a great location to get to many downtown venues. The ability to park there for the day was a great perk! Check in was great with very helpful staff.
The location is also a con as we were in the very last room in the hallway, which is right along the 131 Highway. This made for a very noisy night.
They may want to make sure that when they place the express check out receipt under your door that they only leave one. We also got the receipt for a room 10 rooms away. I happen to open it first and was surprised at the difference in room rates.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BeerLover Nice option in downtown Grand Rapids
Our stay was for 2 nights to begin our pilgrimage to as many Michigan micro-brews as possible. It was during the Memorial Day weekend so I'm sure prices were a little inflated. This hotel is the only one we found downtown that did not charge for parking (the others averaged $16 / night).
Check in and check out were friendly and painless. The hotel and grounds were clean and attractive. There is a small restaurant and a separate bar in the hotel that we did not use, so we have no idea about prices or quality.
We had a King room with a mini-kitchen and TV area. The room was plenty big enough for our needs. We booked late, and ended up with a room right across from the elevator ... when people were getting on and off the elevator we could hear them clearly. Luckily there wasn't much late night activity.
The bed was comfortable except for the combination comforter / blanket that most hotels are going to ... and I totally HATE. You end up being either too hot under it, or too cold if you push it down. The thermostat seemed to have a mind of its own, changing temperatures on us.
One downside of the hotel is it is directly by US 131, so road noise can be an issue. We turned the fan on to blow constantly and that helped, along with the bellies full of beer we had when we got back to the room.
The hotel is an easy walk to most if not all of the downtown attractions. Overall, we were happy with our stay, would recommend the hotel to others, and will consider staying here again the next time we're in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TMDjune2004 Older property but nice remodel
At check-in, staff was very patient & helpful. Excellent location within walking distance to most of what downtown has to offer, and right at the ramp from the highway. Even though the hotel was full for the night, never heard any noise in our room. Room & bathroom were a little smaller than traditional Holiday Inn Express rooms we are accustomed to.

I attended the Homeland Security Conference last and was not able to get into the conference hotel so the Holiday Inn was recommended. It was just a short walk to the conference and a very pleasant stay.

We stayed at the downtown G.R. Location may 8th. The hotel staff was great and allowed early check in. The hotel was very clean with comfy rooms and beds. The hotel was within walking distance to Van Andel arena and The Bob. The area was safe and conveniently located next to US 131. The on location restaurant had great food and a friendly staff as well. I highly recommend this hotel and I'm usually pretty picky.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rhobo Convenience for my needs
I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn in downtown Grand Rapids when I needed to attend to some court business. I love the location. Parking is free and convenient. I was able to walk to the court house in a matter of about 10 minutes. Grand Rapids is a beautiful, spotless downtown and it is such a pleasure to walk around. My stay was very restful. Temperature was set perfectly for sleeping or just lounging. Didn't need to adjust it at all. Nice in room refrigerator and microwave.
I always choose this location when I need to come to downtown Grand Rapids. It is a great place!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JB12 Nice Hotel But Still Has Issues With House-Keeping
I like the hotel and location, which is why I stay here several times a year. It seems like each time I have an issue with house-keeping. These issues range from not leaving toilet paper, to not cleaning the rooms well. Issues on this trip started with the Toilet not being cleaned from the last guest, to not running a vacumn when needed..Not Good!!
I will say that the management at this hotel is very concerned about its guest and always addresses any issues that I have. Steve who works the night shift is very professional and took care of my issues right away.

I had to come in to town for a graduation ceremony. The hotel was very close to the Arena the ceremony was held. The hotel was an absolutely perfect choice! Not only was it close, but it was very nice and extremely clean. The staff were very friendly, and the restaurant and bar were very nice and offered plenty of choices. The price was very reasonable for a downtown hotel in the middle of many attractions. I will definitely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mel-O Our favorite GR Hotel
The location is great, the staff is friendly and the room is clean; is there a better combination? When we come to Grand Rapids for the night, our only choice is the Holiday Inn on Pearl- and since GR is Beer City, there is a bottle opener in the room!

We enjoyed our stay. Very convenient to be able to walk to the museum and other downtown venues. Being across from the ice machine interrupted my sleep a few times. Front desk staff were extremely nice and courteous and kind to our kids. Rooms are a bit smaller than we expected but seemed very clean. We will stay here again.

Very easy access off US 131 convenient location near attractions in Downtown Grand Rapids. Hotel was very modern and up to date. Great restaurant inside hotel, with great food. Kids eat FREE with voucher from hotel desk (unlimited) . Very nice bar and lounge area separate from restaurant if you enjoy an evening cocktail. Rooms are also comfortable and up to date. Staff was quick and efficient. They also offer museum packages be sure to check those out. Would absolutely recommend and stay. The only thing I didn't like was the pool is freezing!! Our kids braved it, but whoa! That being said the pool area is very nice and the hot tub even better.
