Getting Around GR

Once you’re here, you’ll be amazed how easy it is to get around. Most amazing, is how most of where you go you’ll go by foot. In The Hotel District, you’re hotel is within walking distance of everything; dining, entertainment, shopping, hotels and meeting facilities. It’s true, it can get cold here, but our skywalk system links hotels and venues together so going outside isn’t a must. If walking won’t work, public transportation, miles of bike paths, Uber and taxis can get you where you need to be. There’s also a pedal-powered pub cruiser if you’re still looking for more transportation possibilities.

Neighborhood Stories

Grand Rapids is a patchwork of historic, ethnic, residential, rowdy, quiet, cool and cultural neighborhoods. Recently, our neighborhoods are evolving into hubs for young, creative, inspirational individuals squeezed out of Detroit and Chicago by rising rents. That’s good for us, because these fresh faces bring fresh ideas that add to our already incredible neighborhoods by inspiring new restaurants, start-up businesses, boutique hotels, breweries, cocktail bars and clubs that make our city even sweeter.
