Our family, (my wife and I and our two daughters, 15 & 18), stayed here for a 4-day-getaway in the city. The room worked very well for us, although three relatively simple changes would have made it that much better: queen beds instead of doubles; a second sink next to the frig/micro/coffee maker; reading lights for each bed and another for the sofa.
Our nightly rate, $129, included a very nice breakfast each morning in the large, very comfortable dining area. Hot and cold selections, including fresh fruit, cereals, eggs, etc. The breakfast staff was extremely efficient, helpful and friendly. And, to say the least, the same can be said of all the rest of the hotel staff that we encountered!
For our needs, the location worked well. We could walk or easily taxi to all of the destinations we'd planned on visiting -- as well as a couple we hadn't planned on.
The one negative -- which is certainly not unique to this hotel or location -- is parking, specifically the cost of parking. Hotel valet parking was $44/day; surface parking several blocks away was $33, and several public ramps within 4-6 blocks was $37.
In any case, we really enjoyed our stay at the Springhill Suites.
