Liked the suite and good area to work. Bed was very comfortable. The food and bar area were good. fitness facility was very nice. Pool was very small. The staff got overloaded at breakfast. Was told that they got word at the last minute that they were doing "Weekend" breakfast and there were a lot of guests.
spent a weekend here with my wife after a show and night life in Grand Rapids. Loved this hotel!
Loved the staff and location. The rooms were small and hated the size of bathroom.
It was easy to find, quiet and comfortable
The location. That's about it. Paid a 4-star price for a 2-star hotel. The rooms are outdated and musty. $129 a night for an outdated room from the 70's and carpet I refused to walk on with my bare feet. Management should be ashamed of themselves for gouging customers for subpar amenities. I will never stay at another Hampton Inn again. Rest assured. And oh yeah, I wouldn't feed that disgusting free breakfast to a prisoner at Gitmo in fear it might violate the Geneva Convention. Yuck!
Comfort, breakfast, and value. Hot tub was very dirty. Bathroom had hair on walls.
Great staff at front desk. Cool as hell and informative about the area. Area a bit rustic, but the hotel is nice.
Location adjacent to many restaurants and reasonable hotel price. Loud noise occurred at 2 am from people partying on the parking lot belonged to a bar and grill restaurant. The parking lot sit next to the Best Western Inn.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
The hotel and staff were great.
Staff was excellent I was given a suite for standard room reservation. Location there is a run down hotel behind this one.
Clean hotel and nice staff There was a party in the parking lot behind the hotel at 2:00am. I think a bar had just gotten out. Cars were blasting their stereos and folks were carrying on. The continental breakfast was just average.
The hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly. They had nice bedding and towels. The bed was Wonderful! I would recommend this hotel . There was not a plug to charge my IPhone.
Breakfast Quick check in Priced $---too high
The front desk staff was superb. I don't even know where to start. Terrible location, shady and loud neighborhood, view of a dumpster, hard bed with just a sheet on it (no blankets). Water from the sink was scalding and the shower was lukewarm.
Just of expressway on 28Th St with shopping and restaurants plentiful within few miles. Minutes from the downtown. Very comfortable and a notch above other Best Westerns in my experience.
Nice hotel in a questionable area. Two very seedy motels across street and directly behind this property. Loud music playing at 4AM from the fleabag motel behind. Cheap place to sleep, but neighborhood is not good.
All staff was very friendly! Loved walking through the skywalk to the BOB! Beautiful hotel!
We had requested adjoined rooms for our group of 8 women. We were told twice that this would happen and it did not. The people in the room next to us complained about us talking late at night and the hotel manager threatened to kick us out. We did not even have a tv or radio on but women sitting around talking. They were extemely rude and we could not believe after all the wedding and party groups they have there on a saturday night they considered us a problem. I will not stay there again, the staff were extremely rude.
We had problems with billing for additional activities
The room with a river view. The staff was excellent. They truly helped us in many ways. The quality of service was twice as good for half the price of many larger cities. Wonderful value. It has a great bar upstairs but it was nearly empty on a Friday night.
A fantastic hotel will outstanding service. This hotel has rivaled some of the best I have stayed at all over the country.
The location & the staff Every room is definately NOT worth $200/night. When you're in the tower, on the 20th floor & have a beautiful view of the city / river / area it's one thing, but on the Pantlind (old) side - the fourth floor affords you a view of the parking garage across the street, a tiny room with, what feels like, a water closet for a bathroom and barely room to turn around.
Excellent location downtown on Grand River front, very comfortable, top-notch facilities. Good for both luxury leisure travel and business (hotel contains many quality-appearing meeting rooms, plus is integrated with downtown skyway system to convention center, arena, and office buildings). Part of the hotel is a very interesting and elegant historical restoration. Hotel could be OK for families, but seems more oriented toward adults. Overall, an excellent hotel and worth the money. For some reason, we were told at check-in we wouldn't receive full housekeeping during our weekend stay; instead we got vouchers for hotel food and services. We have no problem using sheets and towels for several days (just like home!), but I thought it strange that a luxury hotel would not have full housekeeping on weekends (I don't know if that was true for all guests, or if there was a special issue that caused it this one time). I marked "value" and "cleanliness" slightly down for this reason. Also, sound deadening in the historic part of the hotel (where we stayed) could be better. There was a fair amount of noise from the hallway and plumbing noise from adjacent rooms.
The lobby and common areas are beautiful and impressive. Our room was dated, smelled like a mix between cigarette smoke and mold.
Beds very comfy. Decorated beautifully No sink in bathroom. I usually dont want to walk into another room to wash hands
lots of amenities with pool and racquetball park hotel oversold and did not have room booked
Staff very helpful Everything under construction, lamp broken, dirt and smashed bugs on walls, navigating to room through hanging plastic, windows blocked out. The online info for the hotel indicates a luxurious property which is miles from the truth. We did complain and did receive a small discount but the experience was dismal.
Very inexpensive and close to downtown. Excellent customer service from staff. Suitable for a girls night out! Elevator was extremely slow; coffee was very weak.
Low price, easy access to express way Wet carpet, power kept going out, dirty bedding,
Nothing We exit the elevator after 13 hours of driving, with out two children (5 & 9), to razor blades, trash, construction debris, just a flat out disaster shoots down the entire hallway. A man says we shouldn't be here. I said ok, and headed back to the front. The Dest person says, it's ok, thanks for your patience!?!? W.T.F. !?!?!
The hotel is super close to downtown and has a free shuttle service that you can reserve up to a half hour in advance. Our bed was comfy too. Checking in and out was easy. Right next to the expressway. Our room didn't have a phone, which was weird, and one of the lightbulbs in the bathroom was burned out.
Not advertised that it was under renovation. Way too expensive for the quality. Window covered by plastic due to renovations. Bedding was dirty.
They staff were very apologetic and did their best to provide great service despite the fact that this hotel is a dated crumbling relic - it has been purchased by a hotel group and it will be unrecognizable - completely transformed and beautiful when it's finished. We never would havbooked there had we known the state of the reno, we were advised there were renovations but this is far beyond what we expected. it's surprising it's open right now considering the scale of renovation. The pool and whirlpool were drained which was disappointing. But the beds and pillows were fantastic and we slept well.
Housekeeping was amazing, very clean rooms and pleasant staff Television channels were limited Sleep number bed remotes didn't work in room 601 Microwave plate should be adjusted in room 601
I liked being close to the river and downtown. I plopped down on the bed when I got in the room and found 4 hairs. . . not my own. One was a pubic hair! They sent a maintenance guy to change the sheets and we helped him change them. The pillows were the worst pillows I have ever seen. Totally lumpy foam.
I suppose location was the only good part of this hotel. Dirty, Smelled, Other patrons were loud, sketchy parking lot and surrounding abandoned lots, and 17 standard definition channels on the TV. Bed was rock hard, and the shower was made for people under 5'5".
not much..bad location rooms smelly..floor smelly..understaffed..bad location..no directions for sleep number bed
Very clean rooms - great pool
Very friendly and clean rooms. Nice quick walk to the city.
Very clean. Full restaurant/bar. Small convenient store. Pleasantly surprised at how nice it was!
You can hear the highway nearby.
Loved the clean and modern look, but better yet, the friendly staff and location. Lots of restaurants and activities within walking distance. I parked my car (for free!) and was able to walk everywhere! I wish the breakfast was included and buffet style.
Most aspects of the stay were fantastic... clean room, nice bathrooms, good restaurant staff, etc. The internet connection would drop out unexpectedly, and continuously prompted me to enter a login password every 20 minutes or so. This occurred on all devices, whether my laptop, tablet, or phone. It made it nearly impossible to get any work done while at the hotel. I would give this stay 5 stars, but this is a fairly significant issue for business travelers. Hopefully they can resolve this problem, but it made my stay far less positive.
The staff at the hotel really made me feel at home. The hotel is in a great location downtown - you can walk to bars and restaurants and you have the highway next to you = perfect connections. The breakfast at the grill was excellent. I definitely would book this hotel again .
nearrby the center, the river , easy access off the main Hwy's. friendly staff . N/A
Reception staff friendly and helpful. The toilet did not work and had to be "plunged " at 11.45 pm when we were going to bed. Also the restaurant service was slow and parts of meals, eg essential sauces had to be requested several times.
The staff is very friendly and the location is right in downtown.
The bartender was really nice and our room had a fridge and microwave. The staff was friendly. Had to pay to upgrade for the room I originally booked. They had a scheduled power outage both days
Art exhibits kn lobby and staff Bathrooms a little musty
Upgrade was appreciated. Staff was friendly and helpful. Relaxing stay. Would have liked restaurant to open earlier. Left at 7 AM just as it opened
It was walking distance from everything! Had trouble with the door locks.
Our room was clean and comfortable. The sraff was rather disorganized. When we got there at 4pm, they weren't sure which rooms were ready so we had to sit in the lobby with our luggage for 10 minites waiting for word from housekeeping.
Great location, great staff
Paint was peeling on walls. Hair in tub. Long exposed pipes down all the hallways. We went for the waterslide in the pool for our kids. The pool guy had this bleach spray bottle cleaning the slide and black mold from around the pool. Now it needed it but the slide was only open for a few hours that day as it was the middle of the week and we had to leave the pool because of the overwhelming bleach smell. I have a 9 month old and didnt want her to breath it. They should probably clean the pool while its closed to guests.
rooms were not clean..tv did not work right. pool was not open all the time only at night. would not go there again
Room was nice. Too many kids out of control. Would have liked to use the pool area. Not a chance. Breakfast doesn't start until 7:00 on weekends. Most travelers on on the road by then. Need to start breakfast at 6:00.
Location Run down, dirty, bad receptionist, lumpy small pillows, under bed never been vacuumed, housekeeping on phone while cleaning, no wonder room was dirty. Just bad. Never going back
The slide in the swimming area. The slide hours are different than the pool hours, but this isn't posted anywhere. We specifically booked this hotel for our daughter to be able to enjoy the "water park", but it wasn't available for most of the day.
Location First hotel that I've ever stayed with no free breakfast. Had to request clean towels. Not even coffee
Cheap, convenient location, only 5 mins from downtown GR. Room was clean, bed was comfy. Staff on their phones constantly, very unprofessional. Breakfast ends at 9am, which is absurd when everywhere else it goes until at least 10am or 11am.
It was a very nice room! Big, clean, and had all the right amenities! I love when hotels have fridges and microwaves. And for cost? Perfect! A great place to stay and if I travel this way again, I will stay again! I was hoping for a waffle maker.... But frozen waffles worked. Something little and non-important! It worked though.
New carpet, bedding The chair. Dirtiest, grody, and greasy looking. If they would just remove the chair it would be a major improvement.
I usually like Super8 for a clean and affordable stay. This hotel disappointed. The hallway smelled bad - I think the carpets need replacing. The room was not well cleaned - had a shirt hanging behind the door, some dirty fixtures. The whole place looks old - could use an update. Surprising given it was not a great price.
Needs a remodel and was not very clean.
I've stayed there before and like the location The general manager was rude and disrespectful I had to cancel my reservation cause my room was not ready by 12pm he told me it would be a couple of hours before it was ready and didn't want to do anything thing to resolve the issue except tell me to wait.
The hotel was very clean and our room was great! Staff at the front desk were extremely rude during check in, even stopping me in the middle of talking to help another guest who came back up to the counter. The bell tower staff were also not very friendly. Elevators were slow due to "construction" (that was no where to be seen).
Location and staff Valet was over priced Facilities somewhat dated
good location, free parking, most things are as expected Rather mediocre hotel for a rather high price. Rooms are clean only until you look carefully. Free wifi included, but they cut off skype calls after 2 minutes, so that you would have to pay for premium internet. Overall, typical greedy hotel chain, but could be good choice if you find nothing better in the area.
The staff was extremely informative and friendly. The location was pretty good, within walking distance to many things downtown. I felt like it was pretty expensive for what it was and I also had called ahead of time and was put on hold and hung up after waiting for around 20 minutes and called back and was immediately helped.
Staff was friendly, but unsophisticated. I was switched out of a room because it smelled musty/moldy. Food was good, but expensive, and I'm not accustomed to having to purchase coffe and breakfast when I travel. Amenities bottles seemed to be only partially full. Rooms were unremarkable, but clean. Staff was vacuuming my floor when I checked in around 5 pm. Internet slow, and again I'm not used to having to purchase a premium package for Internet. I'll stay in a cheaper hotel with better amenities and less focus on decor next time
The hotel is finishing a renovation and the rooms and lobby look great. I cannot wait to come back and see the completed project. The hotel was easy to get to and had alot of dining options in the surrounding area.
Good room service is always a plus Bathrooms and tv could be better
Spacious and up to date rooms. Very long corridors
The food was good. They are going through renovation. It's extremely difficult finding the entrance to the hotel and to the building. Finding your room is like going through a maze.
I loved that such a simple hotel has so many amenities. I enjoyed the pool, suana and jacuzzi!
The front desk staff is incredible. Korey Smith (Front Desk Supervisor) made my extended stay enjoyable, made me feel 'at home' and went above and beyond to make sure everything was enjoyable. The renovated rooms are nice and functional and free internet made my business trip a pleasure! The only thing I would change about this hotel is the fitness center. It's in the middle of a main hallway with a wall of windows so you feel like you're on display when you're sweaty and gross. Even pulling the blinds doesn't really help. Other than that, the hotel is fantastic.
Nice and peaceful location. The lopsided of one side of my bed.
Business center should be complimentary,not and extra fee
Rooms were spacious, room service food was good. My guestroom was an un-remodeled room and was really tired looking. I wished the front desk checked me into a remodeled guestroom being that the other 5 people traveling in my group were put into newly remodeled rooms. I was also put into a room with two double beds... which was unnecessary, being that I was traveling solo.
In renovation - rubbish :-(
Premium old school building. Quiet. Upscale bed, sheets & pillows. Spa treatment in the rooms Ad unit in wall was loud.
The beds were extremely comfortable, though felt a little short. The feel of the room was very modern and classy. Really enjoyed the complimentary coffee delivered to our door the next morning. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room was very quiet. Found some dust bunnies under the bed/nightstand. Didn't have any shampoo in our bathroom.
I love this hotel! The staff is amazing the restaurant has delicious food and cocktails! I would stay here again!
It's located near the city center and the staff is very friendly. The rooms also have an interesting style. We were underwhelmed when we got to our room because the view out the window was another brick wall a few feet away. My girlfriend freaked out as she's claustrophobic.
Beds, pillows, and sheets are amazing. I slept well. Staff was friendly and lounge food was delicious. Though they have quick and friendly room service, there is no table to eat my food on. I used the ironing board.
The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. It is located within walking distance of most places. The room we stayed in was Not well represented by the City Flats Photo. I won't go further. But like I said the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. But I'm going to be wary of "boutique hotels" in the future. I would recommend for a business stay though.
Looked clean in the room. Nice smelling shampoo's & soaps. Nice staff. Small pool. The room smelled really bad the whole time, especially when we turned the fan on. The air conditioning unit would turn "on" but would change the temperature. Woke up very hot during the night and was never able to cool the room during the whole stay even when the numbers changed. Sheets were too used and had balls on them and were rough from use. House keeping was very loud all morning.
Cleanliness, comfort, friendliness & helpfulness of staff. We were trying to secure housing for my daughter who is relocating to the area. Would stay here again.
It was very clean, moderately fancy, nice pool and hot tub and friendly staff! Most important for us was the 2 extremely comfortable queen size beds for 4 adult women. Nothing.
The room was very comfortable and clean. Since we booked 2 rooms, we were automatically put in adjoining rooms-very convenient.
The double room was larger than I'm used to. The whole place was very clean. I enjoyed free breakfast in the lobby.
