Grand Rapids, Michigan is a city whose slogan sums it all up, “Cool City. Hot Food.” Now nothing says “cool,” quite like the large event known as ArtPrize. For those who are unaware of the event, here’s a brief rundown. Artists can submit their project (art) to the event and their project is featured somewhere within the city. So over the course of a few weeks that the event occurs, city dwellers and tourists travel the town, in-and-out of bars, clubs, hotels, and each little cafe. All just to see the exhibits. The coolest part (for the artist) is that the people vote online or by texting and the winner receives a hefty cash prize of $200,000.
Now ArtPrize can already be an overwhelming event due to it’s popularity, especially for those of you coming from out of town. Of course the city makes accommodations like changing bus routes, providing maps, and a plethora of online information. There is still one thing everyone from out of town needs though, and that’s a “cool” place to stay. This is where PrairieSide Suites comes in. More specifically, this is where Cheri and Paul Antozak come into play. There’s a reason PrairieSide Suites has received so many accolades, it all comes down to the owners and their amazing hospitality to all guests that step within their doors. Now what exactly makes this place “cool” though? Well that would be the suites. Every room is designed with a specific theme in mind. Just take a look at the New York Loft, or perhaps a Santa Barbara Beach House better suits your style. No matter what type of person you are, PrairieSide Suites is sure to be a great fit for you and your trip to ArtPrize.
