An ideal setting for events of all sizes, the hotel offers more than 7,500 square feet of meeting space, including 10 flexible meeting rooms and one large ballroom. For smaller group meetings, the hotel offers the Meetings Simplified by DoubleTree by Hilton package from $50.00 per person, which includes the meeting room, basic meeting WiFi, meeting room supplies including a flipchart, markers, extension and power cord and all day non-alcoholic beverage service.

DoubleTree by Hilton Grand Rapids Airport, which converted from the Hilton brand, is owned by AWH Partners and managed by Spire Hospitality. "Our dedicated and experienced team members are thrilled to welcome travelers with this enhanced hotel experience that is representative of the current and forward-designed DoubleTree by Hilton brand," said Robert Orr, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Grand Rapids Airport. "We look forward to becoming the hotel of choice for business and leisure guests in this market."
Embracing the art of culinary in travel, DoubleTree by Hilton Grand Rapids Airport celebrates sustainable dining. The new all-day dining, 120-seat restaurant named Ganders, a nod to “Michiganders,” replaced Spinnaker seafood restaurant with a casual, fun atmosphere. Ganders presents modern American menu options that are dedicated to locally grown ingredients representing the best farms, markets and food artisans of West Michigan. “Our goal is to use as many Michigan products as possible," said William Read, executive chef, DoubleTree by Hilton Grand Rapids Airport.
The restaurant also features a number of local craft beers on tap and by the bottle. For a unique spin on special events and tasting dinners, the restaurant can work directly with local breweries to create multi-course beer tasting menus featuring beer incorporated into every course.
