Conference center/hotel is a ways off the highway and quiet. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Very nice, roomy, and pleasant lobby, breakfast area, and meeting rooms. Room was not spacious but adequate for our needs since we didn't spend much time there. Beds and pillows were very comfortable and tastefully presented. Plenty of towels. Coffee service not in room...

Nice basic rooms. Everything was clean. The breakfast was above average. I wish the rooms were more plush. This is more like a motel room. I wish they had upgraded rooms at a higher cost. I would pay more for higher thread count, more plush mattresses and pillows etc.

Everything about my stay was excellent--location, room, food, staff. And an excellent value for the money. My room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The morning breakfast was very good, and I loved the late night snacks I highly recommend Price to anyone coming to Grand Rapids.

I went to a conference at the Prince Conference Center and was impressed from the minute I entered the center. The service was great, the food at the conference was fresh, healthy and served with a smile. The place is a great value.
