- The hotel was originally constructed for $37 million in 1981 as the 369-room Hyatt Regency, but served was rebranded many times in the proceeding decades as the Radisson (1991), Riverfront (1997), Ramada (1999), and Riverfront Character in in 2000.

- The IBLP (Institute in Basic Life Principles) acquired the former Hyatt Regency Hotel on June 16, 2000 and opened on October 13th of that year. They prohibited drinking, smoking, rock music, and X-rated movies in their hotel.

- An agreement was struck with the Crim Fitness Foundation in April 2008 to purchase the hotel, but when it became clear they did not have the money to purchase it up front, the Mott Foundation stepped in in December of that year to purchase the hotel in place of the Crim Foundation.

- It was announced in February 2009 that the Mott Foundation had transferred the building to the Uptown Investment Corp. who purchased the building. Uptown Investment completed a renovation of the building that transformed the former hotel into the 550-bed Riverfront Residence Hall for the University of Michigan-Flint. Uptown Investment transferred ownership of the building to the University of Michigan in 2016.
