Get Here

By Plane:

Gerald R. Ford International Airport is about 10 miles away from the hotel. The Holiday Inn Express does not provide transportation between the hotel and the airport, so rental cars and cabs are your best bet.

By Train:

The Amtrak station is located in downtown Grand Rapids at 431 Wealthy St SW.  From there you can either take The Rapid (our local bus system, take Route 1- Division southbound and get off on 68th at the railroad tracks) and walk the short distance to the hotel or call a cab to bring you out.

By Bus:

The Greyhound station is located in downtown Grand Rapids at 250 Grandville Ave SW. It shares a station with The Rapid’s central station, and you can catch a bus from there. (Take Route 1- Division Southbound and get off on 68th st. at the railroad tracks, just before Arby’s. From there it’s a short walk to the hotel.)

The Megabus stop is in downtown Grand Rapids at the corner of Wealthy St. and Market Ave.  From there you can either take The Rapid or call a cab to bring you out.
