Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnniesMom Great Place to Stay
The Holiday Inn in Grand Rapids was exceptional. It was very close to the Eberhard Center, which was where our event was taking place. Parking was available and easy. There were many museums, shops, and restaurants within walking distance. Bicycles are free to guests to ride the town. There is also a nice walk along the river. Of all the hotels, I believe that this Holiday Inn downtown Grand Rapids is the best value. The staff was excellent and answered all questions graciously. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ajo22 Great Staff rooms are small
This hotel was in a great location and if you don't plan on staying long it's fine. I am used to other holiday inns where the beds are larger- queen size versus doubles and there is a small fridge and microwave and free breakfast. It's a very nice hotel looks great feels clean just the rooms felt small.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LN192 Great Service.
My family came in from GA, OH and we were from the East side of the state. We all met for my son's graduation from Kendall. Everything was great! We even had one of our family dinners here. Actually the food was great and I wish we had done every night here. We would have had Sun. morning also but didn't even think about it being Mother's Day and there was a previously planned buffet which didn't work for us. But everything was great! The staff even recommended a place for us to take the group. Very appreciative.
The staff was very helpful and got us through our celebration. Every night we had guests come back to the hotel for cocktails and visiting. Very relaxed atmosphere. I'd stay here again. Closest thing to home away from home!!!

The hotel was nice and I slept well. 5:15 a.m. without hot water is a deal breaker though!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Linda62T Not too bad
The window allow sound from the highway, it your use to noise you will be fine, the pillows are small, really hard to sleep on such small pillows and the room was either hot or cold, no medium and that was with a 70 degree setting.

When I made my reservation I requested a refridgerator. Would have liked to have known there is a daily charge for this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Truly15 Great place to stay!
A group of friends and I recently stayed at The Holiday Inn the night before the Gazelle Girls half marathon. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. Checking in and out was easy and the staff were very friendly. In addition the location is great. Walking distance to great museums, resturants and parks. I would definitely recommend staying at the Holiday Inn in downtown Grand Rapids.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by UKvisitor Adequate hotel, close to centre of town
Hotel within walking distance to town centre, but expensive for the facilities provided. Paid for breakfast on booking but only found out at the hotel grille that it was a voucher towards the cost of breakfast and did not cover all the breakfast,
Hotel staff helpful.

Skip the pricier hotels that are nearby! This Holiday Inn is close to all attractions(walking distance). The rooms have all you need, super service, and restuarant that has great food. I have stayed at both the other pricier hotels, and continue to come back to this Holiday Inn. I was able to get a good view and able to walk everywhere downtown. Great "old fashioned" personal service from all staff! Easy check in and check out. Also great for families.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Racheal Love the location, hate the food!!!
Being downtown is great, but the over priced, inedible food brought the place down. This establishment should have a nice restaurant and it just doesn't. Very disappointing.

Quick check in, pleasant staff, upgraded to executive suite - Priority Club Membership has its advantages and is FREE. Also received coupon for restaurant. Follow up call to the room to offer any additional assistance. Pool hours were great. Close proximity to the places we needed to go...we walked everywhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrandValleyparent We loved this place!
It is hard to find a hotel that is (1) dog friendly (2) has a friendly staff (3) great location (4) onsite restaurant and (5) has a pool and hot tub. The only concerns we had was traffic noise in our room and rooms are a little small....but otherwise PERFECT. We would definitely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LindseyS Very relaxing stay
I was in town with my husband for a big school presentation that I had to present the next day. Holiday Inn was the best place we could have chosen to stay! The beds were so comfy, I got a wonderful night of sleep. We also used the indoor pool and hot tub, which were nearly empty (no rowdy kids around, although it was a kid-friendly place). Gerald R. Ford museum is right across the street for those in town for vacation/entertainment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheRenwicks Excellent!
My husband and I love staying with you guys! We always receive excellent service from the front desk and housekeeping staff. On a previous stay we didn't receive great service from your dining staff, however, this time we had an excellent waiter who was a pleasure to chat with. His name was Andrew. One thing that we love about this hotel is that it is centrally located to all of our favorite places making it easy to get around. It was a pleasant trip thank you to your staff for all the hard work!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Slow Internet connection
Internet connection was unbearably slow. I understand a slowdown in the evening when large numbers of people are online, but this connection was very slow even during the day. For a hotel that is not cheap, I expect that you wouldn't cut corners on your Internet service.
I will not be selecting this property again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trepson Local Attractions
Came into town for a concert. Asked how far away from the hotel the venue was and was just told a couple of blocks. Asked about the Titanic experience that was at the Public Museum across the street and the front desk couldn't offer any information . I was not offered maps for the city or anything that was going on around town. Looked in lobby for information, guides-anything and there was nothing. Also nothing in my room. Finally had to go back down to the desk, ask for a map and specific instructions how to get there.
This would have been much easier if this was offered to me when I checked in- especially since I was asked why I was there and what I would be doing.
I went to the museum the following day and found city maps as well as guide books, With such a great location to everything, I don't understand why none of these resources were available at the hotel?
I will probably stay again here again but will look for information about going on's before I arrive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jayzamania Great location with peace and quiet
The closeness to downtown and the conference I was attending made this a strategic location for me. Each evening was blissfully quiet, comfortable and totally relaxing in the well-decorated room and the awesome bed. The wireless connection helped me keep up-to-date with news both national and family while I wrote up my notes from the myriad of workshops I attended each day. The free parking is a wonderful bonus! I just love staying in this hotel andwill continue to do so every year when this conference rolls into town.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rcandbc62 More than I expected
My wife and I have been to Grand Rapids a few times in the past few years. We always tended to say more right downtown but decided to save a little on cost and booked the Holiday Inn. We were both very happy with the room, the beds and just the location of the Inn. We've already started thinking about our next trip to GR and plan on using the Holiday Inn again.

I stayed here on a business trip and was fully satisfied. I requested a corner room, which was very nice. I booked this hotel strictily for the location and pool (which was closed during my one night stay) but other then that everything was excellent. Would definitly stay here again.

We picked this place because of its closeness to the dr. We were visiting. The pool was great and the front desk staff was wonderful. The beds were clean and comfortable. The waiting time for food delivery was pretty slow and my food was not hot. But we will definitely stay here again.

What a great property! We enjoyed our stay here from the free parking to the tasty breakfast at the on-site restaurant. I can't say enough about the friendly and helpful staff--they really made us feel welcome. We will be staying here whenever we return to the Grand Rapids area!! This place is super clean, very well maintained, has fast elevators, and is located right across the river from everything. While very near to the expressway ramp, we never heard any traffic noise from our room and slept great! I really appreciated that the heating unit maintained our room at the constant comfy temperature all night--without going on/off all the time. We'll be back!
