Influence and inspiration from our sister cities.
Commissioned by the JW Marriott Grand Rapids, photographer Dan Watts spent weeks photographing in our six sister cities to create the truly remarkable collection of photographs on permanent display in both the public and private areas of the hotel. These photos capture the essence of our sister cities and allow our guests to share the rich cultures of Omihachiman, Japan; Zapopan, Mexico; Ga District in Ghana; Perugia, Italy; and Bielsko Biala, Poland. Enjoy them and be inspired yourself – possibly to take another journey and experience in person the influence and inspiration these cities offer.
