Disappointing acoustics. The volume was much too high, the mixing was awful. Had excellent seats about 20 rows from stage, dead center. Expected much better. Staff was very nice, security seemed to be pretty good. Probably will not return here.

My wife and I travel the country going to quilt shows. This facility is well laid out and well located. Fine hotel close, several connected by a skyway. Great downtown makes it all perfect.

We were here for the State Games of America. Parking easy. Elevators clearly marked. Parking affordable. Be sure to check out the skyway that goes from DeVos to Van Andel arena. Convenient when raining.
