Everything about CityFlatsHotel is special, starting with its convenient location just east of the picturesque Grand River and close neighbor to the renowned Grand Rapids Art Museum. While the building was originally built in 1874 and was once home to the famous Fox's Jewelry, CityFlatsHotel has been renovated and is now Grand Rapids’ only LEED Gold certified hotel. CityFlatsHotel offers an intimate experience for every guest with [only] 48 uniquely decorated rooms. Built primarily from local materials and renewable resources, this hotel walks-the-walk when it comes to caring for the earth and guests.

Simply choosing to stay here is a powerful statement to promote conservation. But while your stay will be filled with elements that are modern and eco-friendly whenever possible, this hotel is just as invested in providing you with a unique and unforgettable experience that’s truly relaxing.
