Grand Rapids gets another hotel, but this one hopes to serve a special customer along the Medical Mile.
Third Coast Development partner Max Benedict tells WOOD Radio they will plant a Hampton Inns & Suites near College Avenue, along Michigan, near the Women’s Health Center.
Benedict says their hotel will not charge what he called "downtown rates" and he figures it will "become the first option" for families who want to be near their relatives in the hospitals.
140 rooms on 5 stories. Construction starts next month.
