Small enough to be charming, yet large enough to house America In Bloom’s “Coolest Downtown,” Holland’s city center serves up three luxury hotels and an eclectic mix of meeting spaces—all within a walkable four-block radius.
Planners can choose from the Tulyp Hotel with its floor-to-ceiling windows, the Haworth Hotel with its blend of Italian design and local history, and the Courtyard by Marriott Holland Downtown with its wrought-iron balconies overlooking 8th Street. Or combine all three for a larger event.
Each property houses a variety of intriguing meeting spaces right on-site. At the top of the Tuylp, Piek Events offers a rooftop patio and stunning views of Holland’s scenic downtown, Lake Macatawa, and a hundreds-year-old windmill. On the campus of Hope College, the Haworth Hotel has 13 meeting spaces, each an inviting gathering place that can accommodate various setups and styles. For a smaller group, the 477-square-foot Courtyard Boardroom features an oval hightop table for 15 along with tasty catering.
Beyond the hotels themselves, downtown Holland has an additional 15 venues all within an easy walk. Meeting attendees can stroll along the waterfront to the Celebration Pavilion at Windmill Island Gardens. On 8th Street, the historic Holland Arts Council anchors one end of downtown, and the 55,000-square-foot state-of-the-art Holland Civic Center Place the other. Plus, with over 100 bistros, boutiques, and breweries, downtown has many smaller venues in interesting locales, such as the Cellar at Butch’s, the muraled 205 Coffee Bar, and Warehouse 6 inside Cento Anni’s woodworking shop.
