The Residence Inn is a new property with modern design. I believe that it has only been open 6 months. I stayed last night to get close to the GRR airport for an early morning flight. It was a pleasant surprise.
The "newness" gives it a leg up over the competition in the market. It is light and modern, bright, and clean. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are spacious. You can work - or have family.
With family in Muskegon, I find myself staying by GRR on the way up or out when visiting. So I have had the chance to stay at many of the hotels in Grand Rapids or close to the airport. Both this Residence Inn and the JW Marriott are comparable to the class of expectation that you would find nationally.
The only issue was that the third party booking.com had a lower rate than the Marriott rates, which is unusual. So I had to book online while standing at the lobby desk. That was a little odd. But not a big deal. The breakfast was also not open at 6:00 am. Someone did not show for work. But that does happen in these properties sometimes, so I did not worry about it too much. Was fine.
It is a safe choice. Especially if you can get a good rate (under $140). Is worth a try if you get to the area.
