Hotels and meeting spaces outside downtown Grand Rapids provide additional planning flexibility. The unparalleled beauty of Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, two dozen hotels within minutes of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport to numerous golf courses with their own meeting spaces, your options for creating a memorable event are endless.
Suburban settings offer a distinctly different experience than a downtown meeting. Different locations offer quick proximity to outdoor recreation, shopping, kid-friendly attractions and other amenities that may be important to your attendees. Yet all venues are within 20 minutes of the city center, so you and your group can easily enjoy both the urban and suburban sides of Grand Rapids.
