My wife and I stayed here during ArtPrize, and were pleased overall. But be aware that, while the address says Grand Rapids, it's a good 20 minutes south of town. That was fine by us, but if you're looking for something closer, be advised.

Also, for whatever reason, the obligatory free breakfast lacked any fresh fruit. No apples. No bananas. No cut-up melon. Now I don't necessarily have high expectations when staying at HIEs, especially where breakfast is concerned, but that was suprising nonetheless.

One last point: when we checked in we discovered that the water park was not open during the weekdays during the non-summer months. So, if you want to partake in such activities, you may want to call ahead.

Room Tip: Be aware there is a water park onsite. So, I would avoid rooms on the first floor,as I suspect noise will be a factor...in fact there are signs in the first floor hallways advising guests not to be too noisy.

My stay at this hotel was good. The room was clean and updated. I did have a little trouble finding the road off the main highway. The room above was a little noisy and I thought that the noise would be filtered out. I would recommend a stay at this hotel.

From the great room to the water park this was a great stay. The staff was very very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was just ok but still part of the room price and late afternoon snacks. I cant complain. The room was clean and the hotel was like new.

We fell in LOVE with this hotel, staff and aquatic center. The staff is very friendly, helpful and just so nice, we have gone here 4 times this summer and it is like coming home. The pool area is the perfect size...not to big (large indoor water parks can be very loud and crowded),and my kiddo had enough to do to entertain for hours. The rooms are slightly larger then the other hotels in the same price range making the stay very comfortable. The beds, bedding and pillows are awesome, we even ended up buying a pillow to take home. The location is convenient to all Grad Rapids has to offer. Breakfast has a lot of choices and the hotel is very clean. We can not wait to go back and are already planning our next visit.

We wanted to avoid staying downtown in Grand Rapids. This was a convenient location, right off the freeway. Took about 10 minutes to get to the Gerald Ford Museum. On Tuesday and Wed evenings they have a hospitality hour with food and beer. Only inconvenience was the ice machines are on the odd numbered floors and we were on the second floor.

Room Tip: Odd floor for the ice machine.
