Tucked away in a peaceful, serene setting, just a bridge walk east from the main Calvin College campus, is the Prince Center. You'll find the atmosphere casual and relaxing with many windows to take in the view, two cozy fireplaces, a patio overlooking the nature preserve and a baby grand piano—all designed to make your visit a pleasant and enjoyable one. Whether you're gathering with colleagues from around the country or celebrating a special occasion with an family and friends, you'll always feel right at home at the Prince.

There is no more convenient place to stay for Calvin College events than at the Prince Conference Center. Plentiful parking and walkable to the main campus (using the covered bridge). The staff are all very friendly and courteous and do a good job keeping the rooms clean.

Rooms are simple and clean. Breakfast is solid. Love the cookies and Chex mix available all day. Spacious sitting area/lobby with fireplace where I can get work done. The coffee is always flowing. Great nature preserve right outside the back door for walking. Everything at

We stayed here for the Art Prize weekend. The buildings are squeaky clean and the free breakfast is quite good. But if you want to get everything they have at breakfast you must get to breakfast early as they don't do a lot of refreshing or the oatmeal, etc. There is plenty of

Dear Jim N, Thank you for your feedback about our property, ArtPrize and the beautiful City of Grand Rapids. Our breakfast attendants want everyone to start their day will a full belly, if there is anything that needs refreshing please let one of the Prince Team members know and we will refresh the food. Meijer Gardens is only 3 miles away and a great attraction to visit while in the city. We love to let our guests know what the city has to offer. Very happy you enjoyed your visit with us. I hope to see you on your next visit to Grand Rapids. Safe Travels,

When the school is open there are dining options on campus. The other answers are accurate, you'll need to drive (close drive) to a restaurant.

Hello cyclenj, I've never heard of these places before, so I searched the internet for there location and found they are in Pennsylvania; and the two are about 52 Miles away from each other. Our hotel and conference center is located in Grand Rapids, MI, which is about 499 miles from the Great Allegheny Passage. !! I'm not a cyclist, and I think it is too far of a trip for an "average" cyclist. :) You possibly have our center mis-located in PA.

"There is an indoor pool at the campus fitness center. Well worth the walk. MaryAnn will make you a smoothie for breakfast if you ask her."
"Be aware that the floor you walk into for check-in, is the SECOND floor. FIRST floor room numbers are basement rooms with no view."
"All rooms are great. I love the second floor, that is where I stayed. The room had a great view of the backyard."
"Any floor works. Also accessible rooms available."
"rooms on the back side look over a field/park... other side parking lot"
