The Amway Grand Plaza overlooking the Grand River celebrated its 100th birthday in 2016 and is still a favorite for visitors to Michigan’s second largest city. Named a top budget destination for 2017 by Sherman’s Travel, the city is home to a rapidly growing beer and foodie scene as well as cultural landmarks like the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. Travelers with tight purse strings can tour 40+ microbreweries and pay less than $4 for a pint of local craft beer, while Art Prize, an international art competition with entries displayed throughout downtown, is free to the public.
Designed by the architects behind New York’s Grand Central Station and the Biltmore Hotel, the historic property is divided into two parts: the Pantlind building, which opened in 1913, and the modern Glass Tower, erected in 1981. The hotel has nearly 700 guest rooms, and the lobby is home to the largest gold-leaf ceiling installation in the U.S., sourced from a Venetian palace.
Accommodations were renovated in 2014 and include pillowtop mattresses, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Five suite options include amenities like dining areas, full kitchens, marble showers and views of downtown and the river. Tower Club rooms include a private concierge and access to the lounge for free breakfast and evening appetizers.
The hotel also has an indoor pool with hot tubs and a sauna, a large fitness center with racquetball courts and an outdoor tennis court. Dining options within the property are diverse and include a Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse as well as two Wolfgang Puck outlets and a Starbucks coffee.
