The New Country Comes to Life in Springfield

Country Inns & Suites recently announced the opening of Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Springfield, IL. You may recall my post about Country launching its newly designed look last year. Well… I’m very excited to share with you that this is the very first Country Inns & Suites hotel to feature the new design!

The hotel features the brand’s new exterior architecture and modern interior designs that are progressive but still capture the sense of home Country Inns & Suites is known for. The interiors feature a clean and contemporary look, grays act as the neutral and strong pops of color reveal themselves on chic accent chairs and textiles.

Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Springfield, IL, has 78 guest rooms and features a fitness center and indoor swimming pool, as well as an outdoor veranda – breakfast outside… always a bonus when you’re on the road.

My favorite part of the entire hotel? The guest room baths – eclectic, graphic patterned cement tiles that I can’t get enough of. This is a design decision I have to applaud as it is not something you see upper mid-scale hotel brands doing. It’s unique and it makes a big difference.

I’m so thrilled to see this design come to life and welcome you to Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Springfield!

Until then,

    Wow! My name is Frank and I am the Night Auditor here CIS Matthews, NC. Our lobby is very spacious and striking for first-time visitors. The hand-painted artwork (Vines and butterflies, a birdhouse) is truly professional and a standout to all who visit, but this new look is very appealing! I draw, as well as play piano, so I can appreciate a great look, especially when it comes to design and overall comforting beauty inside as well as out. Very impressive! Are there more photos to enjoy?
