Hospitality Industry

Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Kalamazoo area.

Originally a fur-trading center, Kalamazoo began attracting permanent residents in the early 1800s, and has had many nicknames, including “Celery City” for its many acres of celery farms surrounding the city in its early years, “Paper City” for its abundance of paper mills, the “Mall City” when the first outdoor shopping mall in the country was constructed in 1959, and most recently the “Bedding Plant Capital of the World” from where the country’s parks, foliage lined streets and gardening suppliers acquire their inventories. Kalamazoo’s early boom years left behind many historic mansions, while the area’s natural beauty attracted famous architects like Frank Lloyd Wright who built many homes during the late 1940s in the area. The climate and soil that earned Kalamazoo its early nickname as “Celery City” now supports several regional wineries that are gaining a national reputation. Whether you are visiting on business, or exploring historic southwestern Michigan, or just enjoying the great Michigan outdoors, the Kalamazoo area offers a complete range of lodging options, from first class urban hotels to ski resorts and outdoors-themed lodges, to family-run country bed and breakfast inns.
