The hotel, located in the Monroe North neighborhood promises a pool shaped like Michigan! But is it?

As someone who drives through Monroe North every day on my way home, I'm very happy to see the neighborhood thriving and all that construction nearly at an end.

The new hotel is located at 710 Monroe NW and its web site describes it as follows:

Enjoy the many shops, restaurants and breweries within a block of our building, or if you're in the mood for adventure, hike, bike or kayak along the Grand River.

Enjoy dinner and drinks at our high-energy sports bar, Big E's Sport Grill, or sip a locally roasted coffee at Sixth Street Bridge Coffee Shop. Cocktail time? Visit our Circle Bar, featuring a spacious outdoor patio overlooking Sixth Street Bridge Park and the Grand River.

Work out in our fitness center or get work done in the business center. Our hotel boasts a unique, Michigan-shaped indoor pool and indoor/outdoor whirlpool spa. If you're looking for an event venue in Grand Rapids, our Embassy Suites hotel offers 6 flexible meeting spaces to accommodate up to 250 guests.

A Michigan shaped pool? Cool, right? Unless it looks like this. Which it does, and then maybe, not so much.

Hey look, we LOVE stuff shaped like our state here in Michigan. Just make sure it's actually shaped like our state next time, OK?
