The JW Marriott Grand Rapids is very honored to have been nominated to win the very first Downtown Alliance's Making Downtown Great award for all the special events the JW has hosted in the past year. And it has been quite a year for the jdub and downtown Grand Rapids in general. We believe we've earned the recognition given that the jdub has continued to produce one event after another, month after month. From the many jdek parties during ArtPrize, to the biggest party of the year, The Juice Ball, and to the AHA! party of the year for West Michigan, The Salsa Pachanga. Thank you Grand Rapids and Downtown Alliance for this prestigious award nomination. And yes, we have a lot more parties planned for the coming year!
The JW was also nominated for the Best New Construction award and the Best Kept Secret award for the jdek.
From the sampling below, do you think the jdub deserves this award?
