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.

Hotel Group Meetings: The Great Outdoors


There is some welcome good news in the Hotel Group Meetings sector. There seems to be a resurgence in activity - across all sectors and all sizes - from small board meetings to large in-person groups. However, hotels must remain flexible and proactive, as they seek to provide venues and programs that are productive, comfortable, and safe to all parties. One major development is the expansion of outdoor meeting activities. This trend not only serves to meet regulatory health standards, but it also promotes an environment of well-being. According to a recent study from WorldHealth.net, spending just 29 minutes outdoors can result in a 45% increase in productivity; and 63% of employees reportedly felt invigorated after being in fresh air. Combined with guided physical activities and healthy food and beverage offerings, a sense of wellness and productivity are established. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to accommodate the revitalization of group meeting business in their operations.
