Hi, my wife and I are coming to town for a concert at 20 Monroe Live. We have never been to Grand Rapids so not really sure how close this hotel is to that venue or good restaurants while we stay? Also I have read about a shuttle? Is it free and will it drop us off for the concert so we can avoid a parking cost?
Thanks in advance!
They do offer a shuttle but I would call the hotel and ask. I am sure they would get you there but you just might have to Uber back. Thank Utah.
They do have a free (we did tip the driver each way though) shuttle that will take you to your venue. Our shuttle driver dropped us off and picked us up right in front of the wedding venue. We used the shuttle to get to the wedding we were attending in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids on a Saturday afternoon. We made the arrangements to use it through the front desk. It was about a five minute trip from the hotel to downtown Grand Rapids. The driver gave us his cell number to call when we were ready to go back to the hotel. When we were ready to return to the hotel we called the shuttle driver and within 20-25 minutes after we called he arrived to pick us up. We had a different driver each way and both of them were friendly and able to answer all of our questions about the downtown area. As for restaurants near the hotel, we did not see any within walking distance of the hotel but we liked the River Rock Restaurant at the hotel so much that we really didn't want to eat anywhere else the weekend we were there so we didn't really look that hard for other places to eat at near the hotel.
Not eve a good property - avoid if possible.
