GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.

Marshall Hotels & Resorts announced the opening of the 162-room Grand River Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, in Grand Rapids, Mich.—the destination’s first new full-service hotel in seven years.

Located at 270 Ann St. N.W., one mile from downtown Grand Rapids, the seven-story hotel is near several local attractions, including 20 Monroe Live, Downtown Market and the Gerald R. Ford Museum.

Concepted by Gorshin/Haddenfield Design, the Grand River Hotel features a Modern style, which arguably saw its birth in Michigan through the work of such local designers as Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles & Ray Eames and Mies van der Rohe. The hotel offers an indoor heated swimming pool, full-service dining facilities, exercise space, a business center and 2,500 square feet of meeting space.

The Grand River Hotel also houses the River Rock Dining & Lounge, a new dining concept for Grand Rapids, offering local and regional culinary flare. While the River Rock offers a full menu of craft cocktails and brews, the lounge prides itself on its wide variety of martinis. During the spring and summer seasons, the River Rock Dining & Lounge provides live music on its patio overlooking the Grand River.
