The State House Inn - an Ascend Collection Hotel

One-Night Stay for Two at The State House Inn in Springfield, IL

Give as a Gift

Restored Downtown Capital Hotel Close to Historic Attractions

In contrast to its own sleekly modern, slate-gray façade, the State House Inn is surrounded by history. Located in the heart of downtown Springfield, it stands just across the street from the zinc-domed capitol building and within easy walking distance of several significant sites relating to hometown hero Abraham Lincoln. These include the home where he lived for 17 years, the offices where he practiced law, and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, which houses hundreds of artifacts including Honest Abe's legendary stovepipe hat (tickets to the museum are included with this Getaway).

The State House Inn first opened its doors in 1961 and has recently undergone a multimillion-dollar renovation to restore it to its midcentury glory. In 2011, mayor J. Michael Houston recognized the hotel for its refurbishments, calling the inn a "vital component of downtown Springfield" and praising the building's face-lift for preserving the city's architectural and commercial history. Retro, early-'60s touches can be seen throughout the hotel, from the molded plastic chairs in the cocktail lounge to the clean lines and mod furnishings in the guest rooms.

Springfield, Illinois: Lincoln Landmarks on Route 66

Springfield proudly upholds its duties as the capital of the Land of Lincoln—a slew of important places from the 16th president's life are carefully maintained here. In addition to the Lincoln home and his presidential library, you can visit his tomb at Oak Ridge Cemetery and the train depot where he bid farewell to his friends and neighbors before departing for Washington, DC.

Located along the famous Route 66, Springfield is also home to slices of quirky Americana such as Cozy Dog, a drive-in diner that claims to have invented the batter-coated wiener on a stick. Architecture buffs, meanwhile, can tour Frank Lloyd Wright's 12,000-square-foot Dana-Thomas House, an early example of the famed designer's Prairie style.

Service was great. Rooms were clean. The hotel is right in the heart of Springfield so you're within walking distance of all the sites. Would definitely recommend the hotel and Springfield as a great place to visit, especially as a family.
