Hotel group manages co-working space
A downtown hotel group has added a co-working space to its management portfolio.
AHC+Hospitality said yesterday that it has added Worklab by Custer to its Grand Rapids roster.
AHC+Hospitality manages Amway Grand Plaza, JW Marriott Grand Rapids and the downtown Courtyard by Marriott in Grand Rapids.
By managing Worklab, which is located downtown at 99 Monroe Ave. NW, guests of all three AHC hotel properties will have access to the executive business and meeting center.
In collaboration with AHC+Hospitality, the space will now serve food and beverage by The Kitchen Counter by Wolfgang Puck, as provided by the Amway Grand Plaza.
Worklab will also feature AHC+Hospitality’s wellness offerings for groups and business travelers, including team-building activities and group wellness programs through the hotel spas, such as yoga classes, breathing exercises and mini spa treatments.
Starting at $29 a person per day, independent workers can utilize the shared space and charge it back to their hotel rooms.
The space will be open to the public as well.
Nicholas Remes, assistant general manager at JW Marriott, said while AHC’s hotels already offer “outstanding meeting and event spaces,” Worklab gives visitors another option.
“The flexible space provides a creative and out-of-the-box place to meet,” Remes said.
Worklab is outfitted with Steelcase furniture and a variety of workspaces by Custer, a furniture dealer based in Grand Rapids.
