Marshall Hotels & Resorts Announces $14 Million Conversion of 259-Room Sheraton Hotel Airport and Conference Center Grand Rapids

USA, Grand Rapids, Missouri. November 15, 2021

Marshall Hotels & Resorts, a leading hotel management and services company that operates properties nationwide, announced the $14 million conversion of the 259-room Sheraton Hotel Airport and Conference Center Grand Rapids. The former Crowne Plaza Grand Rapids Airport & Conference Center will begin undergoing a complete transformation beginning December 2021.

Owned by HDDA Grand Rapids, LLC, the hotel's renovation has been financed by Twain Financial Partners. LittKP Group is acting as project manager, and Gensler is providing architectural services.

"Following the completion of the renovation currently scheduled for June 2022, the hotel will have undergone a complete reimaging, bringing it to ‘like-new' status," said Mike Marshall, president and CEO, Marshall Hotels & Resorts. "The renovation will touch on myriad aspects of the hotel, from exterior signage and public spaces to guest rooms. The process will be conducted in phases to create minimal guest interruptions, and we cannot wait to share Grand Rapids' ‘newest' hotel with area business and leisure travelers."

The renovation will incorporate the recently announced new Sheraton concept by Marriott which reimagined the brand's public spaces and guest rooms. In addition to completely upgrading existing spaces to meet Sheraton standards, the hotel also will feature a new, soon-to-be-announced restaurant. The hotel will feature 21,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space, the new Sheraton Club Lounge for Sheraton Club level rooms, indoor/outdoor swimming pool and fitness area and 24-hour airport shuttle.

Social Media: Essential Interaction


As important as social media has been to hotels as a way to engage guests and drive direct bookings, it is becoming even more essential for hotels to implement a comprehensive social media strategy. All the major platforms have users numbering in the hundreds of millions - and in some cases, billions of users - so it is imperative for hotels to have an established presence on those massive channels. The goals of social media outreach are relatively clear-cut - identify and interact with current and prospective guests; create a brand voice that resonates with your target demographic; promote products, services, special offers, and contests; and acquire market data to support your business analytics. This is accomplished by creating imaginative and shareable content in order to give your brand maximum visibility, generate bookings, and keep guests interacting with your business throughout the entire customer journey. The February Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are successfully executing social media strategies for the benefit of their operations.
