Stayed for free with bonus point. Can't complain. Had a free drink voucher for a class of wine. I could tell it was not fresh. Added breakfast for $5 dollars each. Worth it for $5 but would not have paid full price. Hot tub needed cleaned. But enjoyed having it to relax in.

543RyanL, Thank you for your review! Being located so close to many of downtown Grand Rapids museums, venues, and nightlife can make for a great stay without having to pay for parking. I am happy to hear you took advantage of that for the concert. Should your travels bring you back to GR we'd love to host you again. Safe Travels!

We stayed the night here when were came to town for a hockey game. We stayed here because of the proximity of the hotel to Van Andel. The hotel was clean and employees friendly. The problem I had was the beds were doubles (prefer queens) and they were so uncomfortable and

Hello Michelleincadillac, I appreciate you choosing us for your stay. I'm sorry to hear that you had struggles getting a good night's rest. I understand that getting a larger, cozier bed would be great. I've found out that our hotel only offers double sized beds. I shared your feedback to our management. I'm sure that your comments will not go unnoticed when they make future improvements. Glad to know that our friendly team and hotel's upkeep were excellent. It's also nice that you were able to start your day with a sumptuous breakfast. We always make sure that you get the most out of your hard-earned cash. I hope that you continue picking us for your visits to the area. Warmest Regards, Kenneth F Case Manager IHGService

how many name changes did the hotel go through
Thank you for your question! This hotel was originally the Days Inn when built. The hotel updated to a Days Hotel in 2006, and in 2009 changed to the Holiday Inn Grand Rapids Downtown. Have a great day!
