Hotelier plans 'boutique' suburban hotel
A new “boutique” hotel is being planned for a Grand Rapids suburb.
CityFlatsHotel said today it plans to bring a new 24-room “boutique lodging experience” to Ada Village.
The new hotel is planned for River Street, not far from the Thornapple River.
Conceptual drawings are being presented for approval in late December to the Ada Township Planning Commission, with a targeted groundbreaking in 2019.
The 37,297-square-foot hotel would sit on a roughly 0.33-acre parcel.
A variety of rooms would offer an “upscale, modern décor and a variety of luxury amenities.”
Rooms and suites are planned for the second floor, and a lounge is planned for the ground floor.
The top floor would feature multiple meeting rooms and an event space for up to 225 people, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, custom furniture, a rooftop deck and catering options.
CityFlatsHotel Ada would be the fourth venture by an investment group led by Chuck Reid.
Grand Rapids-based First Companies would be the project’s contractor.
“This is an incredible next step in our ongoing Envision Ada Village project,” said George Haga, Ada Township supervisor. “A boutique hotel will support a number of local business needs, while providing a quaint destination for visitors to our area parks, riverfront and retail shopping experiences.”
CityFlatsHotel operates locations in Grand Rapids, Holland and Port Huron.
