“Pristine and clean, nice property, great staff, lose the FOX TV in the lobby!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

This is a wonderful new hotel - every square inch has that "new car smell" and is pristine clean. The rooms are spacious studios with a partition that goes 8/10 up the wall splitting the sitting area near the entry/desk from the sleeping area. Because that's not a separate room, pretty much when one person wakes up anyone else is going to need to take up also. In addition, the door to the bathroom is right next to the foot of the beds and is made of frosted glass, so if you turn on the lights in the bathroom the person in bed gets blasted with light. I also wasn't crazy about Fox News on every single TV in the lobby- I know this is a "red state" but can we at least have a variety of programs on the four+ television sets there?

here are the pro's and con's:
- great little neighborhood with a sports bar, steakhouse, pizza place, Thai Restaurant
- wonderful friendly staff
- comfortable spacious rooms with walk in closet that can also be used as a dressing room it's so large
- good insulation - I did hear other guests at times but overall the hotel was quiet
- excellent gym with two treadmills, one elliptical and one recumbent bike, and some free weights
- easy parking, huge free lot in front and sides of hotel
- wonderful breakfast, with eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurt, fruit, milk, juice, coffee around the clock
- nice bed with removable duvet, felt very clean and smelled great

Cons:
- Need hooks in bathroom to hang towels
- Need glasses in bathroom - all we got were styrofoam coffee cups with coffee maker until we asked
- Aforementioned Fox "News" on every TV. Please.

Overall as you can see the "con's" are pretty minor. An excellent property with excellent staff.

In case you are comparing to other Huntsville Marriott properties:
- no pets at this one so cleaner than the Residence Inn, which is in need of a refurbishing
- Marriott Space center has a restaurant but there are plenty in walking distance from this hotel. That Marriott is a 1970s flashback though rooms have been recently renovated. Rooms in this property are larger though bathrooms in that property are more private (e.g. do not open directly onto foot of bed)
- newest of them all as of this writing

I have never stayed at a SpringHill but was very pleased. The area is still under construction--finishing up townhomes or whatever but it is a really cute area with several restaurants (the Thai was OK but heard the pizza place & Grill 29 is good), homes, & townhouses. The lobby of the hotel is very new & gorgeous--clean, modern, & colorful. There is a small "market" like Courtyards have. They offer complimentary breakfast every day & it was really pretty good... eng muffins, scones, oatmeal with nuts & raisins, a waffle iron, scrambled eggs, cereal, yogurt, etc. And the room was somewhat of a suite. The partition divided the sitting room & the beds was the desk. There was a pullout couch too. And mini fridge. Overall, we were very impressed and will return when in Huntsville.

I've gone to Huntsville to visit family several times over the last 8 years, and have seen the transformation of Providence into a great destination. The new SpringHill suites is modern, the staff is warm, and it's located in one of the best spots in the area.

Brand new addition to Marriott family. Only 2 months in operation. Contemporary design in lobby and rooms. Great breakfast spread, comfortable beds and very helpful stuff at the front desk. Walking distance to many restaurants in Providence village. We had an excellent stay at this place. Highly recommended.

Just stayed two nights and thought this was a great hotel. Alyssa at the front desk checked us in and was very friendly and helpful. After arriving in our room, we found out there was a problem with the toilet and called the front desk. Alyssa was up to our room within a few minutes with new card keys to a room two doors down. The rooms are nicely designed with lots of lighting, especially in the bathroom, where lighting is usually at a minimum at most hotels. The room also had a sitting area with sofa and desk, a nice large flat screen tv, coffee maker, microwave, and refrigerator (no freezer). The breakfast was bountiful with choices of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, belgian waffles, yogurt, oatmeal, cereals, fresh fruit, artisian pastries, bagels, toast, english muffins. The night before we departed, Brandon at the front desk was kind in placing our ice packs in the freezer near the front desk. We liked this hotel so much that we plan to stay here again next month. Brandon was very helpful in assigning us a room number for our next visit. All employees that we encountered at this hotel provided nothing but genuine southern hospitality.

Room Tip: The rooms on the street side are noiser than those rooms on the backside of the hotel.

I must admit that when my office informed me that they had booked me at the Springhill in Huntsville, I was upset due to a very unpleasent stay at the location downtown. Much to my surprise, they booked me at a brand new Springhill right down the street from my meeting place in Research Park. The bonus was it's location in the middle of a bustling little town called the Village of Providence. I can't believe in all my trips that I have missed this place. I was greated by a very southern friendly staff when checking in, which was the polar opposite of my experience downtown. The room was spacious, AC worked great, and I really enjoyed being able to walk out the side door and have my choice of several restaurants. I chose a little Italian place called Tony's and the Pizza was excellent. After dinner, I was able to enjoy a local car show that was taking place in a park across the street. I ended the night with a cold one at a sports bar called Brickhouse while listening to some live music. Definately my new place to stay while doing business in Huntsville!

Room Tip: All rooms are Suites, but my room was on the North end 2nd floor, which made it easy to take the sta...

I recently just stayed at the SpringHill Suites in Providence, AL. The location is perfect. I travel on business constantly and this was the perfect hotel to stay at. Providence has a variety of restaurants. The Hotel was spectacular and the staff was friendly as well. Brandon checked me in with a smile and made sure I was informed on the area. He gave me information on the restaurants. Thanks Brandon and SpringHill Suites staff. I am definitely coming back to SpringHill Suites in Providence for my next trip.
