The hotel’s restaurant and bar, Grille 29, was updated with new furniture and carpet and a new bar top.
The renovation project also included an upgrade of the hotel’s 2,500 square feet of meeting space.
"With the beautiful modernization of the hotel, we feel that the hotel's upgrades match the exceptional levels of service that our guests have come to expect," said Jeffrey Lawn, general manager, Holiday Inn Grand Rapids Airport. "We cannot wait for our guests to experience the new look and feel for themselves."
