Stay at Home2 regularly with work travel They are doing a great job here Room is clean, bed very comfortable and plenty of toiletry supplies

Breakfast is better than the last couple I have stayed at and coffee is always ready Parking lot cleared of snow and walks treated for ice, so customer safety is obviously important Would recommend for your stay Was here for 4 nights

The good-Most everything This hotel was very comfortable and quiet The beds were super soft and the sheets were silky

The rooms are very large and have a kitchenette Full sized fridge, sink, and dishwasher Dishes are provided for your use There was a TON of counter space We had two queen beds and a pull out couch The fitness center was pristine clean Good sized pool 55 feet Hot tub was nice and warm with jets I slept the best at this hotel out of any that I have stayed at You can’t here the highway at all Breakfast is free It was okay Omelettes and breakfast sandwiches were made ahead of time and kept in a warm box They had cereal, waffles, yogurt, fruit, juice, and toastThe bad- Fire alarm went off at 7am for unknown reasons It was very disorienting and irritating By time we were dressed it was off I did not have a hot shower the whole time I was there Water was warm at best Air conditioning was very loud We turned it off over night Housekeeping staff (girl with blonde ponytail) was very rude to my son when he went into the fitness center to grab a key I had left on the treadmill ( I was standing in the doorway He was not unattended) He didn’t say what she said but he was in tears

I’m a Diamond member with Hilton and travel virtually every single week and always stay in Hilton properties This one was pretty disappointing One of the elevators was broken

Equipment in the fitness center is broken Since the elevators were taking a long time I decided to take the stairs and it smelled like something died in there No matter what my status has been with Hilton I had never been charged for the cheap bottles of water before The good ones yes but not the cheap ones and I was charged for 2 of them on this trip Not a big deal just the principle The room was fine with the exception that the dispensers in the shower were empty but everything else was exactly why I choose Hilton properties

My room was as expected, clean and comfortable However, the purpose of leaving this review is to shout out the absolutely amazing front desk staff My service at check in was great, but Gil and Melissa went above and beyond for me

I needed assistance at almost midnight with printing documents and they did not hesitate to help me with my odd request Was much appreciated!!! Thanks guys 🙂

Darren Walezak

Great views on the riverside and the room was very nice The front desk team was very accommodating Nothing to complain about but if there are certain amenities you want to use the day you check in confirm in advance if they’re working

Staff was light so they had to have shorter hours so I couldn’t use some Not a deal breaker for me but I can see how for some it could frustrate

Melissa Bedell

My boyfriend and I stayed here to attend an event at Devos and it was nice to be able to walk inside to get there and not need to bring jackets or drive/park The Lumber Baron Bar on the first floor is one of our GR favorites, even though this was our first time staying in the hotel we come often for the great drink menu and atmosphere The front desk staff was kind and welcoming and got us checked in right away

We parked in the parking structure, which turns out was free and that was a nice surprise It was disappointing that our shower was not clean, (there was a bunch of hair on the walls!?) otherwise the room was fine The bed was very comfy and we were given the option for a room on a higher floor which had a partial view of the river If we had stayed more than one night, not having a fridge would have been a bummer, but we were just there for the event and didn’t want to drive after so that wasn’t a big deal this time I would stay again for the convenience for sure

Mike Westrick

This is definitely one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at Incredibly clean, and the in house bar was great and very reasonably priced! The pool and hot tub were both really nice, the pool especially as the colored lights were a great touch The area around the pool is stocked with games- pool, ping pong, claw machines, air hockey, and more

Highly recommend

Craig Evans

I do a lot of traveling due to work, and this is one of the best stays I have ever hadRoom was very comfortable and I can’t think of anything that was missingLarge pool area for families who are staying and need a place to unwind

I suspect there are a lot of families most weekends, so it will be a little noisierFree breakfast had a lot to choose fromThe evening bar had a good selection of drinks and small but tasty selection of foodDesk staff was friendly, restaurant staff was attentive, and the building was clean

Kimberly O’Dea

This is by far our favorite Hampton hotel! We’ve been coming here for the last few years on staycation Jamie st the front desk is very helpful and friendly Love the coffee in the morning while my family enjoys the breakfast buffet

Good size pool with plenty of seating The outdoor hot tub is always a big hit Nice to have a restaurant inside, the burger was pretty good

Robyn Nickole

Even though the hotel is more like air b&b on check in I found it quite easy to get in & find my room It was very clean for a dog friendly hotel The dogs were very cute and the room had dog bowls and dog friendly furniture

My room had a washer and dryer in the room which was very nice Full kitchen stocked with cooking pans coffee and good quality coffee If I travel back I will make sure that I stay there! The design was really cool, the view was excellent I asked for a high level floor and I received it I was so happy about that I wish I had stayed there longer was my only regret

Amy Houston

We loved the location, the amenities, ease of check in and especially that you were dog friendly! We were able to walk pretty much everywhere we wanted to (it was v cold, so a few places we took an uber) Most dog friendly hotels just let you bring your dog The Morton, they WELCOME your pup! From the treats in the lobby, to the canine decor in our room, to the bowls and dog bed in the room we felt very comfortable and welcomed

The kitchen was amazing and had everything we needed to make breakfast every morning (except paper towels) The property was spotless and super secure I can’t say enough great things We will definitely be back!!

Angie Sanchez

This apartment style hotel was a new experience for me, so I had no expectations or previous experience to compare to Ethan, the hotel manager was outstanding from a customer service standpoint Checking in was a tad challenging but that’s because I don’t fully read emails (check in instructions are detailed within the body of an email and I missed those details because I didn’t read the entire message)

Ethan sent me the instructions over messaging anyway, and after that check in was smooth The key fobs are so much better than traditional hotel keys! While we did not bring our pup this time, I appreciate the dog friendliness of the property The Morton is going to be my go-to place to stay when we visit the GR area from now on, mostly due to my experiences with Ethan!

Brianna Hellrigel

We had a wonderful 3 night stay here for my birthday The staff was incredibly friendly and professional I would like to commend Drew especially for going above and beyond with our accommodations

The whole hotel is beautiful and we enjoyed a dinner in Margaux’s outdoor igloos which was cozy and fun, as well as the delicious breakfast buffet inside the restaurant The omelette chef was amazing and greeted us each morning as well Would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area and not to mention it is within walking distance of all the best spots in town

Natalie Bell

The lobby is so awkward in when you check in

it is pretty shabby if you look closely around especially the ceiling Also in the rooms the windows were filthy and smelled very foul My room smelled different bad than my mom’s adjoining room which was odd The rooms are nice though esp the bathroom configuration We also had a very helpful bellhop and the man who checked us in was also very good They do need to let guests know the elevator takes a keyand the railing at the elevator bank needs to be higher seems so low for being 9 stories upI slept really well here which is priceless The luncheon buffet was good, and the evening bartender really went the extra mile and was very attentive Breakfast was also good but a tad $$$ $50 for two meals and 2 coffees Good brewed house coffee

Courtney Guthrie

The staff was very professional and kind Shout out to the front desk guy who checked us in last night – he was a manifestation of an amazing front desk associateThe place appeared very well cleaned

Our room was beautiful I very much enjoyed staying here Plus the Starbucks is a bonus 😎🥰

rebecca mae bauer

This place was great! It has an exercise room There’s also a family gaming area connected to the indoor pool The water was perfect temperature, and I thought it was cool how the hot tub continues outside into a fenced in patio, and next to that is a grill area

The breakfast spread was impressive with all sorts of hot and cold choices My kids were fascinated with this automated machine that cooked fresh pancakes

Scha

SO very comfy cozy! Despite having a horrible experience at the last Holiday Inn I stayed at, this stay was memorable in all the right ways!Nestled in the charming city of Holland (which has is its own Holland-themed theme park!), this beautiful Holiday Inn property is ideally locatedA warm fireplace greets guests as they enter the lobby to check in and there is an intimate lounge area The entire facility is very clean and although we didn’t pack swimwear, the pool looks phenomenal! Some rooms even boast whirlpool hot tubs, which was very welcome after working hard in the snow all afternoon

Although all staff here were very sweet and personable, Katy went above and beyond with customer service from a phone call to helping us out with the check in process We can’t thank her enough for making this such a great stay! Kudos, Katy! 🙂

Linda Hammer

I LOVED this hotel It was exceptionally clean The beds were super comfortable

Enjoyed the pool and hot tub with outside “grotto” Free breakfast is standard hotel fare but the ambiance of the place more than makes up for it I will stay here again Why this is listed as a two star hotel is beyond me Great customer service although it wasn’t really needed

Jacqueline Deveraux

We really enjoyed our stay here Great location Walkable to a lot of interesting sites: The staff was really nice

Karen, at the front desk, was so kind and spoiled us Because of our flight times, she even let us check in a little early and check out a bit later We offered to pay more but she said it was fine It pays to be nice She was so accommodating We loved visiting Grand Rapids and would like a repeat visit here

Harry Kourlos

Just wanted to give a shout-out to Amanda at the front desk Very nice and delightful that there are really good-hearted people like her She is very understanding and cares about her guests

I think if more professionals adapted her attitude and work ethic, the business revenue would go up at least 33% It is very important to treat the guest right and to go above and beyond expectations, and she truly did The customer service is A-1 and you will not regret your stay

Sven Tietz

Delivers exactly what you expect of a Courtyard brand: neat, clean, efficient, friendly, well priced Rooms were clean and generous enoughHad no issues with noise, parking or difficulty getting there like other reviewers – was easy and straightforward

Not a 5 star hotel by any means but deserves a 5 star rating for delivering what it promises on the tin

Melissa Baroni

We needed an overnight stay ahead of a competition at Grandville High School, so I was happy to find this Hilton hotel right behind the campus The hotel and our room were impeccably clean, and the breakfast had a great variety of foods to choose from The only issues we ran into were our digital key in the Hilton app did not work upon arrival, the parking lot was plowed poorly so there were many unusable spaces, and our sliding bathroom door was very hard to move

Other than those small issues, we had a good stay and would not hesitate to return for our next trip to the area Finally, the location is fantastic with easy access from the freeway and plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby, including a Costco with gas station a short drive down the same street

Patrick Brannan

Although finding the entrance was a little tricky, we full enjoyed our stay We were in town for an event at Grandville High School, and this property is very conveniently located, with an access drive to the school located adjacent to the property Everything inside and outside the property was very well maintained

Our first floor room was perfect for our family as it allowed space to spread out and relax and the wet bar provided area for snacks and drinks The pool area was a favorite of our kids Although there were no pool towels when we arrived, the desk staff immediately found towels for us to use The morning breakfast bar and coffee area were well stocked and maintained by the friendly staff My kids enjoyed the available hot chocolate as a pre bedtime treat My wife and I both comment on how comfortable the bed and associated linens were They were neither too hot and heavy nor to light and cool This is an excellent facility

Corey Curtiss

Matthew the General Manager was stellar The ideal example of customer service, compassion, and consideration When unforeseen circumstances arose, he ensured I was taken care of lighting fast before I even had to ask

Exceeded my expectations This is where I will always stay when I’m in the area Great leader, great staff, great property Highly recommend

Beautiful, clean rooms Bathrooms had a barn style door that couldn’t lock, so the kids thought that was a little weird Nice clean kitchenette

Big mini fridge Pool was a good temp, could have been about 10 degrees warmer and it would have been perfect But as soon as you start swimming you warm right up Lots of restaurants nearbyWill definitely book another stay

Shyla Burress

We took our yearly summer trip to Michigan and decided to do a hotel instead of a rental and we are so happy that we did! The hotel was modern and clean, breakfast options were perfect for our family (even for myself who has celiac disease), and the entire staff is wonderful Customer Service is stellar and we would absolutely stay here again!!

1 It’s not really a Suite Slightly larger room with a curtain to separate out the sleeping couch

2 Poorly designed sliding doors Careful with kids My daughter got her finger caught -super painful3 Front desk oft was nice Came and fixed the door (temporarily)4 Overall overpriced as a suite …not with the extra money

My stay at this hotel was amazing! The breakfast cook Tonya was very kind and the spread was hot with options She was also part of social which they served a well put together dinner I was shocked to even be served a dinner at a hotel

My room was clean and well designed Housekeeping the next day was helpful enough to even give me fresh towels when they seen me Amber the front desk was nice and answered all questions during check in Later when we needed an extra blanket she was very helpful The pool and hot tub were both open and the area was very clean Upon check out Ashley the GM made sure to ask if we enjoyed our stay, which we did She and Amber were very helpful in breakfast suggestions as well I highly recommend staying here The new management from our previous stays has changed a lot of things for the better All of the staff seem happy and you can tell they are like a huge family

Andrea

Very clean hotel with a very friendly staff Liberty was very helpful and there to greet us at the front desk for a late check in Praise to the cleaning crew, the room was immaculate, spotless and cleaned thoroughly

The full kitchen was very convenient to have, with dishwasher and plenty of dishes All accommodations were beyond my expectations If I could give it 10 stars I would! Will be staying there again!

N-8 The Poet

I’ve been staying in hotels across the country for the last two years because of the nature of my job And I must say that Staybridge is one of my top picks They’re always clean and always willing to help guests in any way they can

They’re great staff is accompanied by their hotel’s great location Literally whatever you need that’s not at the hotel is not too far away Ashley has been attentive as well as some of the other staff members I definitely recommend booking a room at this location if you want a nice, relaxing stay!

Traves O’Neill

I really wanted to give this place 5 stars all around

Here are the reasons why I didn’t First, the hotel is in a perfect location You don’t get the river view, but otherwise you are central to everything downtown The rooms are quiet, except from outside noise (from the windows), you definitely have city sounds that creep into the living space all night long But if you have a 1 room suite, shut the bedroom door and you get total silence But my major dissatisfaction came from 1) the website said there was evening drinks/appetizers offered Sun-Thur but when we checked in were told it was only light appetizers on Wed evening Second, breakfast kind of sucked They were out of one or more items each morning (No cream for coffee, no potatoes to go with the eggs, no fresh fruit, it really changed daily) They kept saying they were waiting on a truck, but I really think they just were not ordering correctly as this was the fourth Hilton property we’ve stayed in over the last two weeks and no other property had this issue, including the one I’m at now writing this reviewI do want to give a special shout-out to Prentice He was extremely helpful and friendly If anyone deserves a raise, it’s that guy for sure Thanks for making our stay better

Big comfort rooms, mini kitchen, tableware on shelfGreat breakfast in the morningStaff at desk friendly and courtious

A bar on main floor and roof top with selected hours The waitress really great; smile at greeting, checks on you if additional order wantedPool lower level of hotelSecurity nice: room key required entering from outside sidewalk (after7pm), and to rooms 3-6 and roof top loungeFamily stay or business; it’s a nice getaway, hope to return

Timothy Hagerty

Awesome location in a historic building in Grand Rapids Close to everything that can walk just about anywhere in the city which is great The staff was okay as had to see front desk people three times to get a key to work for the in and out for garage

The garage is a little pricey compared to rest of garages in area, but hotel does provide in and out access which is nice Room was perfect for my wife and I with our toddler as he had a bed in the living room area and we had our private bedroom We could cook which was nice, but biggest positive was having a full size fridge after visiting the Fulton Street Farmers Market and the Holland Farmers Market Would stay here again if had kid with us just for the space of the rooms

This will be the third week that we have stayed at this hotel and it has been one of the most pleasant stays The staff are always so friendly and helpful The breakfast far exceeded our expectations, although they do run out quite quickly on the weekends

😉 The rooms and hallways are always clean and smell fresh (previous hotels we’ve stayed at have reeked of weed and cigarette smoke) The rooms are quite and the location is excellent Easy access to expressway and many restaurant options are very close/in walkable distance We will forever be customers! Thank you for making this place feel like our second home

Corrin Davis Leverton

We stayed in the queen studio suite and it was a very comfortable room to stay in! Our towels were so plush and fresh We thought the ability to swivel the TV was a nice touch to the room layout! The full sized fridge and well stocked kitchen supplies were also very helpful Check in was easy and quick! Our room was right next to the stairs and it was loud at times, it sounded like guests were running and dragging items through the stairwell

At one point in the late evening it sounded like guests were having an argument and shouting at each other in the room above – better soundproofing or a reminder to guests to not disturb their neighbors could have been nice

Vijay V

We stayed in room 314 the past weekend I highly appreciate having a pack and play (that we requested) before we got inBut, I was highly disappointed when I pulled out the sofa bed at night

The sheets were not changed from the previous guest and was filthy I couldn’t even open fully and closed it immediately I had a guest sleep on the floor for the nightI travel often for living, while traveling with family, this is completely unacceptable I expected higher standards from Marriot especially during COVID

Weird layout to the rooms We liked the sitting area but not impressed that there isn’t a sink outside the bathroom Plumbing is INSANELY LOUD! Woke up this morning to what literally sounded like a person repeatedly smashing on our wall with a large hammer

It was from the pipes due to the people upstairs taking a shower Crazy insane loud! NOT a good way to start your day Toilet doesn’t flush properly, we need to take the lid off the tank and mess with the plunger Lock on bathroom door doesn’t work Pool area is VERY small The place is quite clean though and a very well stocked hot breakfast (coffee was very good too) Staff was very friendly and helpful

I can’t say enough good things about this hotel!!! From the moment we walked in, when we received a fabulous welcome from the desk attendant, to the time we left, with more kind words from ANOTHER desk attendant, we were so pleased with this hotel The room was beautiful, clean, nicely appointed, and comfortable I noticed others comment on noise–that was not our experience even though the hotel was fairly full with lots of children running around

The complimentary breakfast the next morning was tasty and nicely laid out, and the lounging area was great Our only disappointment was the rain that started to fall just as we walked out to enjoy the outdoor firepit Not their fault! LOL! A great stay at a nice hotel with terrific staff Two thumbs-up!!!

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful However, we asked for a quiet room away from the highway, which we did get, but they put us directly above the firepit area which was supposed to close at 10 or 11pm There was a sports team out at the firepit ALL night

We called the front desk multiple times starting at 12am to no avail It was 6/7am before the party broke up – loud music, loud talking We paid to get sleep and got no sleep

Nice hotel, right by the river and only 15 minutes walk from the downtown area Parking was easy, the lobby was stylish and neatly arranged The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating

Our room was clean, smelled fresh, and had enough amenities The pull-out sofa bed was large and comfortable Being on the third floor, the balcony in the room faced a concrete alleyway and side of the building, so we didn’t use it Breakfast was complimentary and there were variety of breakfast items, including one of the best hotel coffees I have ever consumed The breakfast and dining area staff were prompt and courteous with their service Checking in and checking out was seamless with the Hilton Honors App

This hotel was amazing Embassy Suites must be doing something right From the front desk to the breakfast, the workers were so nice and helpful

The guys making omelets we’re great and the manager was very personable The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the pool was fun We ordered food from the restaurant and that was also delicious Great location and parking was so convenient We will definitely be back!

This Embassy Suite location has some of the nicest hotel rooms I’ve had the pleasure of staying in They recently went pet friendly and that was a pleasant surprise for us! The lounge overlooks the Grand River which provides an excellent local back drop The drinks and snacks were very good and reasonably priced

The pool is good but the hot tub got over-run with kids during the afternoon One down side – for the moment – is the distance to most of the other nightlife in downtown This will likely change in the future given the plans for further development at that end of town Long & short – we will be back to stay there again

We had a large family group that stayed several nights for a wedding I was so impressed with this hotel! The staff was friendly and helpful even though they were fully booked Tammy went above and beyond to accommodate our large group by giving us a place to gather and spend time with the family

The rooms were very clean with comfortable beds and pillows It was evident that Tammy takes pride in running this hotel! One day I noticed she was there at 6:30 when we got coffee and then she was still there when we can in late around 10:30 pm Thanks so much for a great stay and adding to our enjoyment of a fun wedding weekend!

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights, and overall had a good experience The hotel staff was friendly- and the rooms were clean no doubt I also appreciated the size of the showers, and the bathroom for that matter

The only thing that wasn’t good was the breakfast There’s a menu, and you have to pay for breakfast The presentation of the food, when it comes out; is just about impeccable But the quality and taste of the food is eh/so so

Logan Florea

The hotel appearance was nice, but room had issues Light fixtures coming off the wall, wall paper peeling, and cabinet doors not shutting The breakfast service is bad

Not complimentary, instead rather expensive microwave food We waited well over an hour for our food The pool had a giant bubble on the ceiling that looked like it would pop at any second If you’re looking for a short over night stay this is good, but any long and I’d look else where

Everything about this hotel was really good The rooms have lots of USB chargers and the kitchens were really modern The only downside is we stayed on a Saturday night

The traffic noise outside was extremely loud until about 2:30am The hotel knows this so they offer complimentary fans, white noise machines and earplugs The location is awesome for walking around Would definitely try it again, maybe just mid week!

Heather (Dirty Paws Bus)

I’m a Grand Rapids-ish native but am now living in northern Michigan I visited GR

for the recent Ghost/Volbeat/Twin Temple concert and didn’t want to bother with driving far/dealing with parking The location of the hotel is absolutely perfect as we were so close to the arena that we could see it from our room The room was very clean, spacious and modern and parking was very convenient We were very impressed! The staff was super nice and helpful We will definitely be back! Thank you for a great stay!

Great hotel and staff This location is within walking distance of everything downtown GR The free filtered water is something I have never seen in a hotel, which was greatly appreciated

The rooftop bar is super nice, but you must make a reservation since it is so popular Overall a great value for the level of comfort Beds are decent, but I have a Tempurpedic bed so nothing ever compares

Amber Lee

The room and the view were absolutely gorgeous The food was phenomenal from the Knoop to the breakfast crew, honestly, the entire staff was warm and welcoming, they all seemed to love their job! Walking to the downtown market and hanging out in the studio Park was convenient not having to leave the hotel was the best part

I really enjoyed the movie theater as well I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture! Hands down, we will be back!

Robbi Montgomery

I was sent to this hotel for a work training The accommodations were so nice The hotel is nearly brand new, it’s got a great vibe and all the staff are so helpful and friendly

The restaurant is great and the roof top bar was a lot of fun The location is perfect for walking to all the downtown establishments and events I would recommend this hotel to everyone
