I am so glad this was what we decided on! Rooms were excellent and couldn't ask for anything more! So close to everything in the downtown area and we had a perfect view of Lincoln's home!! There is a shuttle to/from Amtrak and I am sure that would go for the airport as well. We walked from the Amtrak cause it was close but Saturday morning we decided to use the shuttle back to the train.
There are not a lot of family restaurants or places to eat that are nearby if you are walking. We did not rent a car so we walked all over looking for places to take the kids to eat. Most of the Cafe's and other places to eat were closed around lunch time, so it was difficult!! If we rented a car, it would have been much easier to eat. Nearby walking distance is Bennigan's, Subway, and Jimmy Johns. Those were familiar places.
We ate breakfast at the restaurant downstairs and it was pretty expensive for myself and 2 kids. I don't even spend that much when we go out to dinner, so the next breakfast we had at Subway. Much cheaper! That would probably be my only complaint, the money spent at the hotel restaurant. Otherwise, best place in Springfield!
