I came to Grand Rapids to see the ArtPrize event with my daughter. The rooms were fairly priced and right off the Beltway, near Meijer gardens. Didn't realize that the room didn't have a fridge until the last minute, but it turned out to be a minor inconvieneince. The room was nice and the nature trails out back made for...

I love the PRINCE CENTER. It is located on the campus of Calvin College. The rooms are not fancy, but they are spacious and clean. I always enjoy being on the side of the building that faces the Nature Preserve. You can go for a peace walk from the center into the Nature preserve. The staff is always welcoming and...

Hello Susan, The Nature Preserve side provides a great view, I agree! This time of year with the leaves changing color, looking out the window at that color can be a great way to relax and unwind. Walking the trails is yet another great way to unwind and 'unplug' from meetings, phones, and computers. Thank you so much for the...

I really enjoyed the walking trails and lobby area was perfect for visiting with family. Breakfast provided a lot of different types of options and enough room for us to gather with family staying in other rooms.

Soft bed, quiet room, lovely breakfast, and great walking trail. Very convenient location to shopping and airport. We always stay here when visiting Grand Rapids. My husband often has difficulty sleeping but had a restful night's sleep each night of our three night stay.

My daughter is a student at Calvin, so we always stay at the Prince Conference Center because they offer a parent discount. Very reasonable rates and with the advantage of being right on campus, along with being very clean, having a complimentary breakfast, and a super friendly staff, this is always our first choice!

We have a student at Calvin and stay at the Prince Conference center when we can. The people at the front desk are very friendly and helpful. The rooms aren't fancy, but they are clean. I like the paraben free shampoo, etc too! There is a decent breakfast area with coffee and tea available all the time.
