Global architecture and engineering firm Ghafari Associates is pleased to announce the completion of the Hyatt Place Hotel in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. The hotel was unveiled at a formal ribbon cutting ceremony on September 6, attended by Mayor Rosalynn Bliss, Ghafari team members, developer Orion Real Estate Solutions, Hyatt Place's corporate team, and AHC+ Hospitality team members.

Located at 140 Ottawa in downtown Grand Rapids, the new Hyatt Place Hotel is managed by local hotel management group, AHC+ Hospitality, and is part of the newly established hotel district, a three-block radius that includes hotels, restaurants, and local businesses. The addition of Hyatt Place in the area helped spur the organization of the district, a neighborhood-wide initiative that reinforces Grand Rapids as a leading destination for business and leisure in the Midwest.

Ghafari led the design of the 12-story, 160-room hotel, in conjunction with the Warner Building, an adjacent 15-story office tower that shares the site. After three years of planning, and exploring multiple design options, both the Hyatt Place and the Warner Building broke ground in June 2017. Construction began with the office tower, followed closely by hotel construction. The hotel design deviates from the typical Hyatt Place prototype. The design incorporates core elements of typical guestroom finishes and amenities with a custom urban layout designed to reflect elements and imagery of the area and downtown Grand Rapids.
