Why we love it
- Check in any day of the week Oct. 12, 2012 - March 31, 2013, including Thanksgiving and Christmas. For $179 for two nights, stretch out in a one-bedroom suite complete with an adjoining living room and wet bar.
- Use the $50 credit at the hotel's Terrace Grille, featuring a selection of steaks, fish, pasta and specialty burgers including Kobe beef and fire-roasted poblano. Crispy apple wontons and chocolate creme brulee are two sweet ways to cap off your meal.
- Birthplace of Route 66, Springfield is a blend of urban elements with home-town hospitality evident in its mom-and-pop diners and shops. Outdoor enthusiasts will revel in browsing the Bass Pro Shop headquarters for an array of equipment to explore the rivers and trails of the Ozarks. Other highlights include Wilson's Creek National Battlefield -- the site of the first major Civil War battle west of the Mississippi -- and a ride through ancient cave formations in an underground riverbed.
- Springfield is 30 minutes from the entertainment of Branson, three hours from Kansas City and four hours from St. Louis.
