    Truly a light during a dark, frustrating time!

    I'm not even sure where to begin raving about my experience with CityFlatsHotel, but I suppose I should start at the beginning.

    I reached out to the CityFlatsHotel team via WeddingWire in early autumn 2019 for pricing. We knew we wanted to do an off-season wedding to save money, and I was absolutely blown away by how reasonable both the on- and off-season pricing was at CityFlatsHotel. We made an appointment to go visit their venues, but after seeing pictures of the Ballroom I was almost immediately sold.

    Long story short, we only toured one other venue. After walking through CityFlats' Ballroom, I was ready to sign the paperwork on the spot and couldn't have been more excited about hosting our reception there!

    We planned to have our wedding the first Friday in November, and I was astounded by just how much was included with the relatively-small price-tag compared to any other venue I'd gotten pricing from. Seriously, I don't think I found another venue as beautiful as this one whose price-tag included floor-length linens, Chiavari chairs, charger plates, and an absurd amount more as part of the already-inexpensive room rental cost!

    From there on communication was excellent. Fast responses to my emailed questions, a team eager and happy to hop on a call if I ever needed it, and this overwhelming sense of peace that no matter what happened, they'd be willing to help us out to the best of their ability. And as we all know, something rather big happened in March 2020.

    I didn't anticipate a worldwide event to sweep through all our wedding plans like a hurricane, but even when it did the CityFlats team remained supportive, informational, helpful and incredibly kind to us.

    We originally scheduled our wedding for November 2020, but at the end of July/beginning of August 2020 my then-fiance and I sat down and decided that we needed to 1) move our wedding date up, 2) reduce our guest list, and 3) move the whole shindig outside, which (due to their location downtown) CityFlats was unfortunately unable to accommodate.

    One might think that our journey with CityFlats would have stopped there, riddled with bitter feelings and lost deposits, but let me assure you that it didn't. I reached out to our coordinator, Katarina, about our options. Unsurprisingly, she was incredibly accommodating, and we came to the consensus that we'd use the money we'd put down on the room rental towards catered food for our newly-outdoor reception.

    This was another area their team went above and beyond, completely exceeding all of my expectations. Our reception was held in Holland instead of Grand Rapids, and we were worried about how the (INCREDIBLY delicious) food would hold up during the nearly-hour-long drive. Their chef, Chris, came back and said they could prepare the food at their parent company's downtown Holland location, Sperry's, which was only 15 minutes away from our new reception venue, as well as deliver the food themselves.

    We were completely blown away by how kind, generous and understanding the team was throughout the entire rest of the process. I wasn't there at the beginning of the reception, but from what I've heard from our coordinators and guests, things went completely smoothly and their team was absolutely wonderful.

    The food itself was FANTASTIC (we can highly recommend the boursin/spinach-stuffed chicken and the stuffed mushroom caps!), and the vegetarian option ended up being the highlight of everyone's meals! I wish we'd gotten more, honestly, even though we did them a la carte!

    Everyone absolutely loved the dinner options, we had more than enough food for our guests, and the overall experience with the CityFlats team was positively impeccable. I'm already eager for COVID to pass so that we can host a different special event in their stunning Ballroom with their fantastic service and delectable food.

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    We absolutely loved working with City Flats Hotel. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty and were amazing to work with. As for the Ballroom, we received countless compliments from our guests on how beautiful it was. I highly recommend this venue.

    CityFlats Hotel is one of the classiest venues in Grand Rapids. The staff is always so great to work with. I've love photographing weddings at CityFlats over the years!

  • Perfect Reception Mobile DJ Service Wedding DJs

    The Ballroom at City Flats is flat-out one of the most elegant and unique venues in West Michigan. For example, the ceiling is something like 30 feet high! There's all kinds of cool lighting that change the vibe of the room. The gorgeous staircase is like the Titanic's, and there's so much more. The staff run a tight ship which assures everything goes smoothly. I have DJ'd and attended many functions at the Ballroom at City Flats, and highly recommend it.
