A stay at our hotels in Grand Rapids makes it easy to get out and explore the pedestrian-friendly downtown. Go for a stroll along Riverwalk, a landscaped pathway on Grand River’s west bank. Take the kids for a twirl on the 1928 carousel inside the Grand Rapids Public Museum. A few blocks away, the Gerald R.
