Construction was annoying. Children's group was booked at same time...children were not managed. Latch in door looked like it was about to fall off. Bar was only open to 10:00, not optimal when constrained to the hotel.

Overall I was rather pleased with my stay at this hotel. I was in town for a business trip and it was nice to have a central location within Springfield.

I called to book a room one evening and Chelsea was the only person at the front desk. Most hotels don't hesitate to keep you on hold forever, but she was very professional, got my name and number and called me back. They unfortunately didn't have any availability for the weekend we needed but next year when my daughter has...

Great hot breakfast if you use their reservation system. But, if you reserve thru another online reservation system you go without unless you pay a rather stiff price. Now, it my inform you about this but it would be at the bottom and in small print. Otherwise the place is OK.

I have stayed here many times and the hotel is always very clean and quiet. The staff could stand a little more training in hospitality and friendliness but they are ok. They stopped including free breakfast over a year ago but that is not a deal to me because I do not eat breakfast. They do have a nice Starbucks...

Clean, spacious rooms, conveniently located near the square in the downtown Springfield area. They have a lovely atrium, nice pool and hot tub and courteous staff. Usually it is quiet and easy to sleep there. Recent remodels and updates have kept the hotel elegant and comfortable.

I needed a room for a quick trip back and forth to Springfield to drop my son off at college. The front desk agent was friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel is dated but a good value and very conveniently located.

Overall this is a great hotel and good value. Nice location convenient to downtown attractions. I was not impressed that the hotel seemed to be running on a skeleton crew over my stay. Understanding that we checked in on 12/24, I get people taking time off, but after a long drive and being the holidays, I naturally wanted a drink....
