Gorgeous photographs of the Sister Cities.

The entire hotel will feature photographs of Grand Rapids’ five sister cities. Renowned local photographer Dan Watts traveled to each city to capture the beauty and people unique to each culture. “Cherry blossoms and the Fire Festival in Omihachiman, Japan; the amazing architecture of Perugia, Italy and Bielsko-Biala, Poland; and the people of the Ga District of Ghana in West Africa and Zapopan, Mexico make up the largest single collection of Sister City photography in the world, a total of 16,855 photographs.” Watts said. After a month of editing, the collection consists of 250 first class photographs. “That means only the best are being used,” Watts said. The photographs will be displayed in the guestrooms, meeting rooms, and public areas of the hotel.
