Hotels Debut in the Heartland

NATIONAL REPORT—The heartland of the U.S. is seeing new hotel openings, including a Hyatt Place as part of a newly established hotel district in Grand Rapids, MI. Here’s a look:

Hyatt Place Downtown Grand Rapids Opens

Architecture and engineering firm Ghafari Associates has completed the Hyatt Place Hotel in downtown Grand Rapids, MI.

The new hotel is managed by local hotel management group AHC+ Hospitality and is part of the newly established hotel district, a three-block radius that includes hotels, restaurants and local businesses.

Ghafari led the design of the 12-story, 160-room hotel, in conjunction with the Warner Building, an adjacent 15-story office tower that shares the site. After three years of planning, and exploring multiple design options, both the Hyatt Place and the Warner Building broke ground in June 2017. Construction began with the office tower, followed closely by hotel construction. The hotel design deviates from the typical Hyatt Place prototype. The design incorporates core elements of typical guestroom finishes and amenities with a custom urban layout designed to reflect elements and imagery of the area and downtown Grand Rapids.
