Guest Recommendations
"I was in a non-smoking room, but the room smelled like people had smoked in it in the past and the air was stale and smelly. The air conditioning kept kicking on and off all night and was noisy, without really cooling the room down adequately."
Kathleen from Troy, MI US rated Riverfront Hotel Grand Rapids 4 out of 10 on June 07, 2004
