The Marriott Hotel in Springfield is located in the downtown area. It is within two blocks of the Mass Mutual Center where our NERGC Convention was held. It has its own parking level in a parking garage but it is not near the entrance to the hotel but rather on Bridge Street which is on the opposite site of the building.
Once you have parked, take your ticket with you to the desk and they will add the $17 a day charge to your room. An entrance on C level of the hotel takes you right in and out to the garage. A ramp makes it easy to get your luggage into the hotel.
The lobby is attractive with lots of marble and check-in was a breeze. Three elevators meant that we never had to wait long to get to our room on the 12th floor.
We had a standard two double bedded room and it was small but well equipped. The bathroom was positively tiny. It was one of the smallest bathrooms I have ever seen.
Comfortable beds with lots of pillows.
Enough plugs to keep our devices charged.
A small refridgerator to keep our drinks cold.
The room was very clean.
Good selections of TV stations.
While the internet was strong it was difficult to log on and we ha to keep logging on every day.
The coffee pots is located inside the cabinet in the room which is very incoveneient.
Very small bathroom.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. The staff is very friendly and helpful and housekeeping, which we didn't allow into the room, kept us suppied with extra coffee and plenty of toiletries.
