We booked this hotel because we were attending a party in Grand Rapids. I knew my 3 year old daughter would love the water park area and she did! We had a hard time getting her out. The guestrooms are some of the best I've ever stayed in. Incredibly comfortable memory foam mattresses. I've never slept so well at a hotel.
The only drawback was the noise, but that is sort of to be expected. The hotel caters to families and it's not always easy to control excited kids..

We loved the pool area, we have young children an it was just perfect for them and us. The pool area was quiet and nicely kept. Our whole experience was great because of the environment, the staff, and the cost vs benefit was a good value. We loved the memory foam mattress btw, wouldn't mind one of those for our bed at home!

Traveling for business all year we use our reward points to provide us and the three kidos a quiet place to call our own after all the parties. For the past ten years we stayed at another HI in town, but the picture of the pool had me intrigued. The splash pad looked great for our under rugrats, and sure enough it is a hit with the under 10 crowd. But the policy of only 4 pool guest per room, wearing bracelets, and paying $20 for the extra person in our family was a downer. Our local pool is 100 times better an half the price. The strict hours of pool use also was a downer. As was the strict time for breakfast. It will be some discussion to decide if we will come back next year or return to our usual cross town haunt.
Also families... a usual visits to HI is business suits. Everything is quiet, courteous and nice. Between the holidays it is kids, lots of kids, kids who are not home, kids who are excited, kids who don't know better and take the fresh pancake from the cool pancake maker even though I may have been waiting right there waiting for it... have patience, 50 kids in the breakfast room is fun if your are not uptight in a business suit.
