    I might run up for Friday or Saturday - we are camping about 40 miles from there that weekend. Does anyone know if the parking garages nearby have room for a dually long bed pickup truck?

    My guild is going, we are staying at the JW Marriott, that is near by and a walkway to it. We are going thursday and Friday. We are doing 4 to a room to keep costs low so we can buy more.

    For the ones staying at the Amway Grand, bring your own coffee pot, or hot pot and instant coffee or tea bags. You cannot get it in your room unless you order room service, min. 20.00. They have a Starbuck in the lobby.

    They even charge to use the pool for guests of the hotel.

    I get upset with hotels where I cant get a cup of coffee in the morning.

    What is going on there? A quilt show? Is it downtown? Sounds like a fun outing-I have about 2 hours or a little more there!

    This is a big AQS show. First time in Michigan. They committed to 3 years in Grand Rapids.
