I travel for business quit extensively for business and almost always stay at IHG properties. I've stayed at several Staybridge Suites hotels over the years and usually love them. However, this one completely underwhelmed me. Upon check-in they never acknowledged that I was an IHG platinum member and was never offered an upgraded room from a studio suite to a larger suite. Trust me, by the number of cars in the parking lot, there were plenty of vacant rooms.
The staff was ok, but not overly friendly and the food offered that evening was average to below average. The rooms also did not have flat screen TVs. Really? It's time to upgrade. The room was clean, though, so it was not a complete disappointment and it is right off I-72, so it is convenient. With a little more effort from the staff and a few amenity upgrades, it could be a much better hotel. The next time I'm in Springfield, I will be staying at the HIE or Crown Plaza.
