This property has been updated/renovated in the past few years, the decor is modern and up to or exceeding brand standard for a Courtyard. The bistro is this property is pretty large and well stocked and maintained; they even have a private room for special gatherings. The rooms are nicely appointed and I appreciate the newer "smart" tv's in the...

Wow! The Courtyard in Grand Rapids was such a great place to stay it is unfortunate we only had one night there. The downtown property was located in a perfect spot for anyone wanting to explore the city. The common areas were all modern well lit and welcoming. Also, the front desk staff were so cheerful they made us feel...

The sign out front is hard to read, making the property hard to identify. The pictures online don't reflect the new rooms or the lobby. Once you're inside, however, the recently renovated property is a very comfortable option for travelers. The rooms are nicely appointed and the bedding is comfortable. Farewell to the giant gross comforters of old. The pool...

Snagged an upgraded room on the top floor. Lovely, with separate living room. Hotel has recently been redone; looks good. While Bistro menu same as others, much larger space and friendly feel. Good location for wandering the downtown GR area; lots of restaurants nearby. Maybe 15 minutes from airport.

The Courtyard Grand Rapids Downtown was spectacular in every way. I had the smoothest check in process I've ever had at a hotel. The staff was courteous & professional with great rooms to go with exemplary service. To top it off the location was excellent. If you're visiting Grand Rapids I strongly suggest this hotel.

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...
