A Euro-Style Hotel In An Unlikely Location: Holland, Michigan

City Flats Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Holland, steps away from the boutique shops, galleries and dining district.  Using as many green products as possible, it is the first hotel in the United States to achieve LEED silver certification.  Absolutely worth putting on your list of things to see and do!

The Bar area was a great place to meet up with friends to enjoy Tapas and Cocktails before we headed to the Shops and Local Galleries.

You should not be expecting typical when you walk through the door of this Hotel, it is very unique.  The design is fresh and inviting.

The Lobby boasts a large wall of neon inset glass with ever changing colour.  All furniture is from Hathaway, who design office furniture as well.

The fixtures in the Lounge Area are simple swirls of metal that cast a soft glow on the ceiling.

All 56 rooms display a different foot print for the design.  The track door slides smoothly to close off the bathroom area.

This is one of the interior rooms that we experienced, to see more you will have to make a visit!  You will not be disappointed!  Visit the City Flats website for reservations >
