My husband, my mother who uses a wheelchair, and I stayed 2 nights at the Inn in early October, 2008. Very few guests occupied the Inn during our mid-week visit, so we were fortunate to receive very personal attention at times from the staff.
We reserved the Orchid suite which consists of two bedrooms, one bath and a parlor. A spacious balcony overlooking the capital building is accessed by both bedrooms. My mother especially enjoyed sitting in the very large parlor beautifully decorated with early 20th century pieces.
Breakfast is a real treat. The staff was exceptionally accommodating to us and the food, wonderful! Early morning coffee was available downstairs as well as in the room; the evening wine of good quality and quantity; and the night time warm cookies, sinfully delicious!
The staff made it possible for us to use a side delivery door in order to wheel my mom to the elevator. Wheelchair accommodations are available throughout, but they are not particularly easy and guests with disabilities cannot experience the warm visual welcome each time they enter the building, as able-bodied guests do.
During my mother's rests, my husband walked to many of the city's historical and cultural sites. Springfield's streets are beautiful, well marked, and the signage in general is very good.
Because Wifi and electrical outlets in our suite were "spotty", I would not recommend the Inn to anyone needing to conduct tech-oriented work during their stay.
However, I would certainly recommend this small, boutique hotel to anyone looking for a quiet place with plenty of atmosphere, excellent food and friendly staff.
