Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Grand Rapids, a relaxed Midwestern city built on the banks of the Grand River. You'll be in easy reach of downtown's vibrant nightlife, the region's premier sculpture park and Lake Michigan's sparkling shores.
Guests at our Grand Rapids hotels can easily explore the pedestrian-friendly downtown on foot. Pause to admire the iconic red Alexander Calder statue "La Grande Vitesse," the unofficial symbol of the city. Continue your stroll across the river and along the landscaped Riverwalk past more outdoor sculptures in the city's impressive collection. Two downtown museums charge modest admissions and are within easy access of our hotels in Grand Rapids. The Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum & Library commemorates the only American president never elected to serve, and at the Grand Rapids Public Museum you can stroll the streets of Grand Rapids, circa 1890, in a re-created tableau of Victorian-era shops.
Begin your evening with a pint of locally brewed ale at one of the bars clustered in the lively downtown entertainment district, the city's premier destination for concerts and events. Hockey fans flock to Van Andel Arena to see the Grand Rapids Griffins take to the ice. Fridays feature dollar hot dog and beer specials. Have dinner or sample the city's rollicking nightlife inside the B.O.B. entertainment complex across the street before heading back to our Grand Rapids hotels for a comfortable night's sleep.
Book a room at our hotels in Grand Rapids for four seasons of warm Midwestern hospitality. In summer, head to the cool blue waters and sandy beaches of Lake Michigan. In December, take a horse-drawn-carriage ride through the Sculpture Park in the Frederic Meijer Gardens, dressed in glittering holiday finery.
