Downtown hotel expands event space and opens blow-dry bar
A downtown hotel has expanded its space for events and opened a new blow-dry bar.
CityFlatsHotel in Grand Rapids hosted ribbon-cutting ceremonies this month for the Parlour @ CityFlatsHotel, a 2,500-square-foot blow-dry bar, and Events @ CityFlatsHotel, a new events space.
The Parlour is located at 77 Monroe Center St. NW, formerly home to Louis Benton Steakhouse.
The Parlour specializes in event hairstyling and professional makeup application as well as full salon services, such as cuts, colors, manicures and more.
The styling lounge can also be transformed and customized into a private area for blow-dry bar services before weddings and special events.
Rebecca Shoemaker, salon manager, added that guests can have beverages and food catered in from the hotel's CitySēn Lounge while at the Parlour.
With the opening of the Parlour, 10 jobs have been added to the CityFlatsHotel team.
Events @ CityFlatsHotel, also located at 77 Monroe Center St. NW, features a reception space and two conference rooms.
The event spaces will provide additional areas for the hotel, which features the Ballroom @ CityFlatsHotel, to host various events.
