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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Greatlakscop Very clean convenient location
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Travelinginhisservice Modern and convenient
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lovey611 Really nice hotel
Great accommodations, good restaurant and in great location. Only thing I have to say is we were sold a room in a bock. We were close enough to go home after our concert but stayed under the assumption we would be in a group of rooms together with other concert goers and were weren't even all on the same floor.

the hotel was very nice, clean, and the staff helpful and friendly. The food variety was pretty good, I had a turkey reuban that was very tasty as was the beer dip with pretzels. Beds were comfortable. Excellent availability of outlets for multiple appliances and electronics. Would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GR27 Great location, amazing management team
Located in an ideal spot, very close to 131 and right in downtown GR. I had a small issue, which I brought to the management team's attentention. They immediately addressed the issue and made the situation right. The follow up from Ellen was top notch. Hotels are in the service industry and issues happen, it's how you react to them that seperates you from the competition. I give mega kudos to the team on how they handled, thank you!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NAJ20 Room across from the elevator
I stayed at this hotel last week. The location is great, the hotel is nice, but I was given a room across from an elevator. The walls in the room must not have bee very soundproof because I could hear the elevator and people in the hall the entire night. I am usually a very sound sleeper, but didn't get sleep that night.
As an IHG Platinum member I am surprised that I wasn't given a better room. Also, I had reserved a king room and upon check in was informed that they were sold out. What's the benefit of being a Platinum member?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thankyou1 Desk Manager
I travel for business all over the country and a few overseas and stay mostly at Holiday Inn properties. As a Platinum member it is nice to be able to book a room on the fly and know you will get a room upgrade if available. I normally don’t complain but at this location I just wanted to get to my room after a long day and after finishing my check in process I noticed I was getting a double bed, and politely ask for a King if available. The Desk manager Catilyn said no problem, and Yes a King is available at an additional fee. Wow, this has never happen to me before at any IHG properties, and Kings where available, but at additional charges / only this location. Manager was not friendly at all, and I would not recommend dealing with her again if you are a loyalty member of IHG. Find another hotel… It only takes one to ruin a trip… The other front desk staff members where polite and understanding, Thank You and Sorry...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smackthepony33 It's the best.....around.
Nothing's ever gonna keep it down.
But for real, this place kicks a lot of butt. Especially if you have a show to play at Founders or something. Jerry is one of the most helpful people I've met. I demand that everyone who works there get a raise for being so awesome. Shoot, I had Kelsey (I think that was her name) help me straighten out my IHG stuff. Since I barely use that kind of stuff, It was very appreciated that she did that. And quickly, too. Super professional staff.
And the 2pm Checkout. We needed just about every second of it. Awesome.
