What a great hotel! i stopped over on a long trip to break up the driving. The staff was SO kind and friendly. The room was super comfortable and I slept so well. This is a great choice if you're staying in Springfield IL!

My family and I stayed at Residence Inn for the New Year. We swam right after check in and then hung out in our room to ring in the New Year. Check In was easy. Only severely disappointing event was when we found out that if you are local, they do charge a $250 deposit. I understand that it is due to local people booking a hotel, throwing a party and then ditching the mess however that is a large sum. The notice we received was that it would be refunded within 10-14 days and that they would walk by our room every hour to check on us. The hold seems a bit drastic to me. Second thing we noticed was that they do charge a $100 non-refundable cleaning fee if you bring any animals. Just FYI In case someone wants to bring their family pet. I will note too that the pool was FREEZING. We could not stay in for longer than 15 minutes without our teeth chattering. That was super disappointing. Our room was a studio (the smaller room option). Everything seemed clean and bed semi comfortable. We will probably pick a different hotel next New Year but would recommend to any out of town extended stayers who wouldn’t want the highlight to be the pool.

We recently spent 2 nights at the Springfield Residence Inn. Like many other Residence Inns, the Place was kept up and clean. The entire staff was great from check-in, cleaning and Amber at happy hour. However our breakfast was most enjoyable with Ronda who was cleaning off tables and helping people with their breakfast (especially families with kids), what a pleasant person she is. We enjoyed talking with her. One last shoutout to the person (s), who decorated the Christmas tree, it was one of the prettiest I had ever seen. All in all, we enjoyed our stay there.

The staff at this hotel go above and beyond to make guests feel welcome and well cared for. We were very happy with the rooms but the breakfast and service staff were what stood out the most. You rarely find people that genuine and caring.

This hotel is very comfortable and a great value, especially for a weekend getaway or extended stay. Our room (a suite with full kitchen) was wonderful. The bed cuddled you to sleep. The amenities in the room were fantastic and modern. The whole property was very clean and modern. We enjoyed the pool and fitness room, and the outdoor gas firepit was very nice on the cool night we were there. The hot breakfast each day was like home, tasty and plentiful. I saved the best for last. The staff of this hotel were as friendly and helpful as I have experienced in my many travels.

We brought our son to Springfield for a hockey tournament and stayed here one night. Quiet room with separate bedroom and living room suite was perfect for everyone to have their own space to relax. We had two TVs and big sofa pullout bed in the living room as well as a kitchenette that we didn’t need. Free coffee and breakfast in the morning and really nice staff at the front desk and in breakfast room. Son got to swim in the pool twice and enjoy the hot tub. Little shop sold snacks, wine and beer. We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here overnight and I am as very pleased. Room was clean. Employees were extremely friendly and helpful. It seems to be rare to find hotel employees that act like they care about their place of business but they did here. We will stay here again!

What a friendly team! The front desk staff are friendly and helpful all of the time! The kitchen staff are absolutely incredible- and willing to send you with a banana and a coffee before the kitchen even opens in the morning!! This really, really made me feel at home (home away from home!) like grandma was taking care of me with a truly personal touch. I’m truly impressed!

To Robin, Rhonda, Tina, Ken and the entire staff of the Residence Inn of Marriott, we would like to say thank you for your kindness and outstanding service. We were booked at the Abraham Lincoln, Double Tree, also in Springfield for our first night. To say we were disappointed with their service, attitude, amenities, etc., would be an understatement. However this review is all about the quality and kindness of the folks over at the Residence. Kind regards, Kevin and Kenya Jones

This is my preferred hotel when I visit family in Springfield. One of the newer hotels in town, it is nice and clean, and seems to be well run. I've stayed there several times over the last couple of years and it is a consistently pleasant place to live for a few days. And I say "live" because it's not just a place to crash at the end of the day. I've had company visit me in my room and there's plenty of space and seating. I'll be staying here again I'm sure.
