Safety Measures & Precautions

The health and safety of our associates and guests is a top priority. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we are actively monitoring guidance provided by public health officials, and we want to assure our visitors that additional sanitary measures are in place to maintain a healthy environment and limit the spread of germs. In addition to our regular and very thorough cleaning procedures, we are currently taking extra precautions, including:

  • Housekeeping is using EcoLab Peroxide Cleaner and Disinfectant Spray on all surfaces that guests or employees might touch in common areas, including the front desk, guest elevators, lobby restrooms, stairwell handrails and more.
  • Inside guest rooms, we are using EcoLab Peroxide Cleaner and Disinfectant Spray and always change to new, clean rags between rooms.
  • All high touch surfaces are being cleaned and disinfected several times throughout the day in guest corridors.
  • Guest check-in reception area is being cleaned every 30 minutes including all counters, pens, phones, and PIN pads.

We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you soon!

GR is ArtPrize!

The Holiday Inn Grand Rapids Downtown would like to introduce you to the second of our 13 featured artists for ArtPrize 2017. If you haven’t joined us for ArtPrize in past years, ArtPrize is an annual art competition that takes place in Grand Rapids each fall. This year, our lobby will feature artwork that showcases Grand Rapids and Michigan as a whole. Our second featured Artist is Charles Helmholdt and his wife Diane. Native to Grand Rapids, Charles and Diane are excited to make their return to the ArtPrize competition. Their piece, Grand Rapids 1999, offers a futuristic view of our city from a Victorian perspective. Inspired by their work with Euro Disney, this ink and pen drawing depicts specific Grand Rapids landmarks with an exaggerated, turn of the century, twist. Its beautiful antique frame will surely make it stand out! Don't miss your opportunity to see such a fun piece!

Grand Rapids 1999 by: Charles & Diane Helmholdt
