I'm planning on getting a hotel room for the night of the bachelorette party in Grand Rapids and price is really no problem. But I live in California and have never been there, so I am looking for your help! I was looking at both the JW Marriott and the Amway (would've loved a contemporary boutique hotel, but smaller city= only chains!). The bride (my sis) is 23 and unfortunately has friends spread all over the country, so we're all planning from afar!
This hotel room will serve as a central hub for the girls, many of whom will be flying in that day, so it will be a place we all connect and get ready and kill free time while waiting for other attendees. So, I'm looking for not only a nice room but a hotel with perhaps a fun bar, or a central location to something fun that some of the girls can wander off to while waiting for others to arrive and also would like feedback on how the hotels other services are. Any nice breakfast places (to take the bride out the next morning)? Any gorgeous rooftop lounges?
I would love the help from those who've been to or lived in Grand Rapids. Where's THE place to stay?
