Welcome to the Hotel District

When you’re in The Hotel District you’re in the middle of everything; high-end, medium and moderately priced hotels, from hip to homey; world-class convention facilities and event spaces; restaurants, ranging from fine dining to fun dining; and a cavalcade of clubs, pubs, bars, breweries; bakeries, cafes, coffee shops, music venues, museums and more. All within walking distance.

Experience GR Like a Local

If you’re out and about in The Hotel District, odds are you’ll find yourself next to a local. Since The Hotel District is the heart (and heartbeat) of the city – it’s where we locals live, work, and play, too – right alongside you. You’ll also find that the people here are pretty proud of “here” – so get ready to experience ‘West-Michigan Nice’; a local term used to describe the warm, friendly, funny and fun-loving people who live here and love it here.

Dining & Doing

It won’t be hard to find somewhere with a menu you love, somewhere to kick back and relax, or kick it up a notch. Just walk out your hotel door, turn in any direction and you’ll find the soul of this city; mainstream restaurants and hidden gems, dancing, music, art, shopping, comedy, and a cocktail scene second to none. Something to satisfy every audience.


A river runs through it, literally –– the Hotel District sits astride both banks of the beautiful Grand River; with enough inside its borders to satisfy anyone’s sense of adventure. From its eclectic mix of restaurants, breweries, diners, and delightful dives; to the inspiring Medical Mile and the historic homes of Heritage Hill; to the West Side strip with its spectacular array of super-cute shops and fab-food stops; to the museums, parks, boulevards, walkways, and all the indoor and outdoor venues that make staying in one of the hotels in the Hotel District a total no-brainer.
