Being the first LEED hotel (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) in the Midwest City Flats Hotel in Grand Rapids is setting new standards for environmentally friendly hotel visits! (U.S. Green Building Council, 2015 and CityFlats, a, 2015). Green materials as well as new technologies meet to bring guests the satisfaction of knowing that their hotel is part of protecting the world we live in. This includes: cork floors, bamboo linens, low-flow faucets, low-VOC paint, as well as many recycled products and much more (CityFlats, a, 2015).
While staying at CityFlats, the hotel restaurant CitySen Lounge is available for all meals, specializing in locally-sourced ingredients (CityFlats, c, 2015). Breakfast ranges from strawberry waffles to blueberry pancakes while lounge foods the rest of the day include kale chips and tenderloin sliders. If you are feeling exceptionally indulgent, add on dessert such as carrot cake or cookie dough sundae (If it involves cookie dough I am sold already). Happy hour is every day from 4-7pm, enjoy wine for $4, well drinks for $4.50, domestic beers at $3, 12oz drafts for $3.50 and 23oz drafts for $6. Pair with Bruschetta or Truffle fries and your evening is set (CityFlats, c, 2015)!
CityFlats also can accommodate up to 200 people in their ballroom for weddings and any other special events you can think of, all while being as environmentally friendly as possible (CityFlats, b, 2015).
Coming up March 28th, CityFlats is pairing with Short’s Brewing Company for a 4-course beer dinner. Beers are to be specially paired with each course for the perfect combination, for only $40 dollars for an evening of taste bud happiness (CityFlats, c, 2015)!
April 5th brings us to Easter Brunch at the hotel from 11am-2pm in the beautiful ballroom. There will be an omelet station, waffle bar, mini crab cakes, breakfast potatoes, smoked salmon, kale salad, mini cannolo, cheesecake and much more to choose from all day long. Make sure to bring the whole family and a good appetite (CityFlats, d, 2015).
The CityFlatsHotel not only specializes in being LEED certified, but in an over-all exceptional guest experience. Find CityFlats on:
