This place is completely worth the high price tag. The beds are unbelievably comfortable, and the rooms themselves are equipped with just about everything you could ask for - and a lot you would have never even thought of. The room service menu is top of line, but if you'd like to escape the room there's always the very modern 616 restaurant/bar on the 1st floor! Located almost exactly in the center of Grand Rapids, this is the perfect place to stay if you're looking to go bar hopping in the evenings or would like to walk to the museums with your family during the day. Couldn't have spent New Year's Eve at a better location!


This hotel is spectacular. I have been hotel jumping for two years now, and this is one of the best for the dollar. Great location. Beautiful amenities.

The rooms were so nice! They were very tastefully decorated and were very modern. There was a nice chase lounge chair. The view was fantastic! A great view of the river, I was thinking it would be good to go on the 4th of July and you would have an excellent view of the fireworks.

The bathroom was my favorite part. They had LARGE bath tubs, and a separate shower. I wish I had this bathroom in my house! It was GREAT!

The pool area was amazing, the pool was pretty big, there was a nice hot tub and they also had 2 steam rooms. It was a very relaxing area to be in. Down the hall from the pool was the fitness center. It had multiple of the same machines. They also had a lot of weight machines and free weights. Pretty much anything you could think of, they had! Then on the other end of the hallway was the spa center, so you could go back there for massages etc. It is a bit pricey, but well worth the money!

If you can fork out for the massive price tag, the JW Marriott is a very, very, VERY nice hotel. The location is great, and the rooms on the west side of the building have a spectacular view of the river. It's only five years old, and the decor is very contemporary without feeling sterile. The rooms are tastefully decorated with commissioned photography of Grand Rapids' sister cities and include little local touches, like ergonomic desk chairs made by Grand Rapids-based office furniture manufacturer, Steelcase. Even though JW Marriott is a chain, things like this make the experience feel unique and special.

It also helps that it is home to six.one.six, one of the best restaurants in the city. The restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients that are fresh every day. Divine.

JW Marriott doesn't come cheap (rooms are upwards of $300 a night, and there aren't a lot of added extras, like breakfast or free parking), but if you can afford to splash out, the experience is unparalleled.
