Reviewed yesterday NEW

The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The beds and pillow are extremely comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised at the noise level or lack there of with this hotel. Restaurants and entertainment venues are within walking distance.

Great location with multiple restaurants and bars within walking distance; particularly convenient with large groups. The meeting rooms are standard; nothing special but all together rather convenient. Nice workout facilities; rooms have been renovated and all other services of business like level. Paid parking; no airport shuttle. Would stay in the property again.

The hotel is in a convenient location for walking the city. The bar across the street closed around 1:00 and perhaps 100 drunken men (and some women) poured into the street and hotel grounds. Fighting, shouting (with much profanity). A 25k race was happening the next morning at 7:30, which no one bothered to tell us until after we gave...

Courtyard is a perfect location for such a great city. Walking distance to great restaurants, DeVos, breweries and the River Walk. We would recommend taking a walk to the farmers market or HopCat :) The fresh fruit water in the lobby was a great touch. There is a Starbucks in the lobby..however it is not full menu.

The rooms are nice (newly renovated) and clean. I don't like my room warm and had a hard time with keeping it cool. It would cool off and every night it would bump up 7 degrees. It would actually wake me up and I did not sleep well at all.

This location conveniently located near Van Andel Arena. You can use the enclosed Skywalk to get there from the hotel and never go outside. Also nearby is the Bob, an entertainment venue on multiple floors with dining and music. The staff was very helpful from questions of parking (charge for both self and valet), breakfast (the people in Starbucks in...

The bistro is this property is pretty large and well stocked and maintained; they even have a private room for special gatherings.

Wow! The Courtyard in Grand Rapids was such a great place to stay it is unfortunate we only had one night there. The downtown property was located in a perfect spot for anyone wanting to explore the city. The common areas were all modern well lit and welcoming. Also, the front desk staff were so cheerful they made us feel...

The sign out front is hard to read, making the property hard to identify. The pictures online don't reflect the new rooms or the lobby. Once you're inside, however, the recently renovated property is a very comfortable option for travelers. The rooms are nicely appointed and the bedding is comfortable. Farewell to the giant gross comforters of old. The pool...

Snagged an upgraded room on the top floor. Lovely, with separate living room. Hotel has recently been redone; looks good. While Bistro menu same as others, much larger space and friendly feel. Good location for wandering the downtown GR area; lots of restaurants nearby. Maybe 15 minutes from airport.
