Situated in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, close to the art museum and the children’s museum, this renovated 1874 building now holds 28 individually designed and super green guestrooms. On the first floor, CitySen Lounge serves lunch and dinner. CityBru Coffee, located in the lobby, is open 24 hours. Free breakfast and Wi-Fi are included. Where this is a fitness center, there is no pool.

Great location, friendly and accommodating staff. Price point is on point with level of expectation. Sustainability efforts A++. All take-away is compostable, Boxed Water in the rooms instead of plastic, eco body products, wood floors in rooms, recycled plastic flooring instead of carpet. No hotel off-gassing smells. Nice work! Love the large windows, electric black out shades and the bed so very comfortable! Housekeeping could be a little more through with attention to detail. I'll definitely stay again!
The room was clean, and check-in/out was easy. The location was great next to the GRAM. Coffee, good restaurants, and great beer within blocks. A little bit of a homeless problem. The kicker was our car was side swiped parked out front of the hotel.
