We paid $169 for a Saturday night, valet service not included. Were able to walk the the VanAndel center via skyway. Our room on 6th floor had recently been renovated and was nice, about what you might expect from any downtown hotel. Our first set of room cards didn't work so had to get a new set.

The only reason to stay here is because it’s walking distance to everything downtown. I paid $230 for a room to accommodate 3 people, The bathtub drain was plugged so when I took a shower it filled up with water, we did not have 3 towels and only one pack of coffee, I went down to the lobby to get...

Dear Fedman- Thank you for visiting us recently! Yes, we are located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids where you can walk to all the major attractions either outside or via our connected skywalk to avoid the cold (or very hot summer) weather. With exception of a few remaining rooms, all of the rooms have been recently remodeled and...

We stayed for a one night stay. Location is prime - new restaurants, breweries and the arena. Convenient enclosed walkway connects a lot of these. The room was very newly renovated and was very nice. Fellow hotel guests were a bit noisy upon return from their evening out at around 1:30am. Not the hotel's fault, but annoying. Self parking lot...

First I stay at a lot of Marriott's because you almost always know what to expect.I had mixed feelings about this hotel. It is convenient to downtown GR and the skywalkway which was nice considering it was very cold the first day of Feb. They are undergoing a remodeling which I knew about. Only had to wait one time for...

Stayed one night for a wedding in Grand Rapids. Hotel staff was friendly and accommodating as you would expect at any hotel. The hotel itself was nice and seemed up kept. I can't speak too much for the location as we were only there one night and didn't venture too far away from the hotel, but there were several bars...

It should be no surprise that Grand Rapids is commonly referred to as Beer City USA. With tons of great craft breweries at your doorstep, the Courtyard is a great choice. Aside from the location, they have/are going through updates to the rooms and common areas. Very welcome lobby area with helpful reception crew that can make recommendations on food,...

My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott downtown Grand Rapids for one night on NYE 2016. We chose this hotel based on location, price, and that it was part of a NYE package. Overall, the property is fine. Location is perfect...within walking distance to Van Andel Arena, The BOB, and many downtown restaurants, bars, etc. The hotel...

The location is good, but you will pay Manhattan prices for that. They have been doing extensive renovations here for the past year; we stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms. It was okay -- even for a Courtyard, I found the finishes and furnishings a bit "cheap" feeling. We stayed here for convenience and we did get convenience....

I stayed at the Courtyard Grand Rapids during a recent trip to the city and enjoyed my stay there. There is no full restaurant on site but the bistro had a decent menu and the food was good at a reasonable price.
