“Fantastic stay!”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Fantastic experience! The staff were smiley and very accommodating. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the amenities were superb. There was a great breakfast with lots of options, and access to drinks and snacks 24 hours a day. There are great facilities on site, so this would be an ideal place to host large gatherings as well.

We recently stayed at the Prince Conference Center as part of our visit to Calvin College. The facility itself is beautiful, spacious, relaxing, clean and well staffed. The breakfast was fantastic and included healthy options as well as the usual fare. The work out room was small but well maintained. The ONLY reason I did not give it an "excellent" rating is the hotel room itself was a bit plain. Overall, I highly recommend this location and would readily stay there again.

We had a very pleasant first stay at Prince Conference Center. It was peaceful, comfortable, and clean. Very good breakfast buffet ... cookies, trail mix, fruit, coffee and tea always available. We'll be back!

I, too, was in the wedding group on NY Eve, and was the hotel planner for our group of 16+ people. I chose the Prince CC based on other Tripadvisor reviews and my conversations with the staff. Everyone commented on what a good choice the hotel was. Convenient to downtown, warm and friendly staff, comfortable rooms, and exceptional continental breakfast. I loved the huge stone fireplace in the lobby and my disc golfing daughter enjoyed seeing baskets in the woods looking out our window. I also liked the walk in showers in the bathroom. And the price was right. Very happy with our stay.

Liz727,

I am very happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay. You will have to bring your daughter back and enjoy the disc golf course on campus this summer. Planning for 16+ people can be stressful, I hope that we were able to help with that. I look forward to having you come back and see us again.

Thank you!

After reading other reviews of this property, we decided to stay here on New Years Eve, 2013. We had intended to stay in downtown Grand Rapids but all quality hotels were full. The Prince Conference Center was not only less than half the price of the downtown hotels, the rooms were larger, the facility was impeccably clean, and the free breakfast was much better than the usual. The facility is part of the college campus and security police are constantly touring and available to help with car trouble, medical issues, etc., in addition to providing a wonderful sense of security. The facility is absolutely quiet - no traffic noise, no airport noise, and no noise coming from other rooms. Plus, free parking & not too far from the front door. In addition, they offer free shuttle service to the GR Airport. For out of town guests interested in various activities, this private (but open to the public) conference center offers a very convenient location - less than five minutes to the popular Woodland Mall, and less than ten minutes to most other attractions including downtown Grand Rapids, Meijer Gardens, the Public Museum, Gerald Ford Museum, Knapps Corners shopping with Celebration Cinema, and hundreds of restaurants. Each room contains a leather bound directory of attractions, and they provide a list of restaurants with recommendations such as "best burger in Grand Rapids", "best pizza in Grand Rapids", etc.

Room Tip: At the very reasonable prices compared to other Grand Rapids quality hotels, we chose to pay a few d...

I couldn't have said it better myself. Thank you for the wonderful review and comments. I hope that you are able to visit us again and enjoy the Prince Conference Center. Our campus safety division is amazing and are there to help. I don't know what we would do without them.

Thank you for all your kind words, and I look forward to having you come back to stay again.

Had a family wedding in Grand Rapids and a group of us stayed at Prince Conference Center. It was everything we wanted-reasonable price, comfortable and clean rooms, and very nice breakfast. We would highly recommend it.

Have stayed here twice while visiting our grandson. This place blows us away!

It is one of the most comfortable, absolutely cleanest and reasonable hotels we've ever stayed at "while on the road." Also some of the most gracious staff we've ever encountered. They genuinely go out of their way to make sure guests are treated excellently....like princes!

Most comfortable lobby area adjoined by a great café area where complimentary breakfast is available. We will definitely stay there after our grandson graduates when we return to Grand Rapids to visit the Meijr Gardens when their Japanese gardens open in 2015.
