Location and Lodging

River Rally 2017 will take place at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids. You are responsible for booking your own lodging in Grand Rapids. Your conference registration includes access to the Rally program, included meals, and social events.

Unfortunately the Amway Grand is now booked for most of the nights during River Rally 2017. If you still need lodging, we recommend you book it ASAP. Here are some suggestions:

  • We have created an online bulletin board for River Rally registrants to find others who are willing to share lodging. The link to the bulletin board is provided in your registration confirmation email.
  • These sites have options available in the downtown Grand Rapids area:
  • There are also a number of Bed and Breakfasts in Grand Rapids. A quick Google search on ‘Bed and Breakfast in Grand Rapids, MI’ should turn up some results.

*River Network strives to make good business decisions regarding the location of and facilities selected for River Rally. Our planning and contracting process often begins years in advance so that we can keep our costs low and pass on these and other benefits to event participants. Our selection of facilities should not be seen as an endorsement of the practices, views, or interests of these businesses or their managers, shareholders and owners.
