The Hyatt Place Grand Rapids/Downtown on the corner of Ottawa and Lyon Street in the heart of downtown’s entertainment district conveniences business travelers and casual guests alike. Managed by AHC+Hospitality, Hyatt Place is a convenient, comfortable—and pet friendly—lodging option with amenities from 24-hour access PC workstations and wireless printers, to around the clock dining options. In all, the hotel’s focus is on enhancing well-being, and it shows in thoughtfully designed rooms with areas for sleeping, working, and relaxing, and additions like blackout curtains, dermatologist-designed products, and a refreshing pool and fitness center on-site.
A variety of room options offer garden or city views, along with spacious footprints and floor-to-ceiling windows for a refreshing morning or work environment and additional semi-enclosed corners with sofa sleepers. Enjoy a fresh in-house breakfast or a nightcap and late-night menu at The Bar. Also open 24 hours is The Market, which offers grab and go items from snacks and salads to sweets from the bakery case. Head across the street for coffee from a Grand Rapids staple, Ferris Coffee, or to the wine and small plates lounge Forty Pearl in the same building for wine samplings, an evening glass, or a shared bottle.
