The hotel is nicely situated to be walking distance to plenty of dining. Attending a training session with about 20 colleagues and the catering was outstanding with very great tasting food!!! Very nice rooms and quiet during my stay.

Nice and clean, skywalks, view... but so noisy ! Easy to hear people talking in hall and arguing next door! My favorite downtown place is Hampton inn on Michigan street since it's newer and more soundproof with extra free benefits like breakfast and parking ... this hotel charges $16 -25 for parking, no breakfast. Employees were very helpful.

I stayed here this week on business for the 2nd time. I was impressed last time and this visit was no different. The front desk staff were very friendly and informed me that they were putting me in one of their newly remodeled rooms. They told I was one of the first people to get to stay in it. The... More

The hotelstaff is great. Been staying here 50 nights/year for 13 years now. The hotel offers valet parking, room service, and a full bar with a great bartender. The location is convenient to walk to all of the amenities that downtown GR has to offer and it's easy to get to the major highways. It's also $50-100 cheaper per night... More

We stayed for Halloween. The hotel is average, for the price I would stay at the Amway next time. I went with Courtyard because I have Silver Elite status, but this doesn't give you anything. I was told at 3:00 pm that I couldn't even get a room that had been renovated because "they were all full". I was given... More

Great location for going to the B.O.B., downtown festivals, museums and concerts at the Van Andel arena. I really dislike the way the self parking works and the where the parking garage is located though but would still stay there again.

I stayed here on business and it was very nice. The front desk always provides rapid and exceptional service. They have a small bistro/bar that serves a limited menu but what they service is very good. The room that I stayed in was very nice and it had a comfortable bathroom with oversized towels which I always find to be... More

This is a great location in downtown GR and the onsite underground parking would be a major plus in winter.

First off, this is the biggest Courtyard I think I've ever stayed at. My room was on the 4th floor, and so far from the elevator it was quicker for me to take the stairs up and down. Location is good, right in the middle of town. The young man who checked me in was very helpful and friendly. The... More

If you need to be right downtown then this place is a good option for you. The staff here is courteous and helpful. The pool and hot tub were nice. The rooms were clean and well maintained. We were in town to visit some breweries and stayed here because it was within walking distance to bars and restaurants.
