My wife and I travel the country going to quilt shows. This facility is well laid out and well located. Fine hotel close, several connected by a skyway. Great downtown makes it all perfect.

We were here for the State Games of America. Parking easy. Elevators clearly marked. Parking affordable. Be sure to check out the skyway that goes from DeVos to Van Andel arena. Convenient when raining.

Very well maintained, reasonably large, venue in the heart of Grand Rapids. DeVos Place hosted multiple events, concurrently, for the State Games of America without a hitch. Staff did a fine job. Internet is available, but pricey. Bathrooms and other facilities were well maintained.

Have visited a variety of events including the North American Automobile show each year as well as it being one of the venues for Artprize each year.

The DeVos is much improved from the last time I was there. It is obvious that they have worked to make the larger halls more comfortable for convention meetings. The acoustics are definitely better than before.

Not much to say other than it's awesome and huge. It can handle the biggest of conventions and it's located right on the river in downtown Grand Rapids. I've been to car shows, boat show, hunting and fishing shows, home and garden shows, stand-up comedy...More

Convention center. Pretty exterior. Interior uninventive and floors are hard on the feet for the endless expanses of walking.

Didn't stay in hotel for the event but the meeting rooms were comfortable in temperature and seating. Wish they had water in more locations or with larger cups. Vegetarian food selections were tasty and creative.
