Amway Grand Plaza

About this Stop

The Amway Grand Plaza is one of Grand Rapids' oldest luxary hotels. A remodel in the early 1980s included the addition of a 29 story glass tower, making the hotel the tallest building in Grand Rapids until the 34 story Plaza Towers was built in 1991. Currently, Amway Grand Plaza's tower is the third tallest building dotting our city's skyline.
