A Review of Crown Plaza Enfield - Springfield

Where: Crown Plaza Enfield (CT) - Springfield (MA)

When: September 25-27, 2008

Accommodations: King Bed Suite, no smoking. $352 for 2 nights (includes tax).

Customers: Family of 5 - 2 adults, children ages 5, 3, 2.
Attending The Big E.

The Room: Bedroom contained a king sized bed, full bathroom, and TV. Other room contained a separated "kitchenette" type area with dorm sized refrigerator, counter, coffee pot, and sink. Website said there would be a microwave but our room didn't have one (our only disappointment). The living room area had a sofa bed (where the boys slept), table with four chairs, desk and TV. There was PLENTY of room for our kids to enjoy themselves and a fold-out twin bed for Ellie. Also, connected to the living room was a half bathroom.

Everything was clean. One concern was that the low and large windows did NOT lock, and we were on the 5th floor! What is it about hotels not having windows that lock or have screens?

Amenities: Room service (we had overpriced pizza for supper one night). Not one but TWO hair dryers! WiFi (but I left the laptop at home for our family weekend). An indoor swimming pool and hot tub!! Also an outdoor pool that was closed (which was fine given the temperatures in New England now). No free breakfast but we had taken breakfast items with us and stored perishables in the refrigerator.

Who should stay here: ANYONE! It was pricey but given our last hotel experience we didn't mind paying a little more for quality. Usually when we travel for more than one night we prefer to stay in a suite and those cost more. Keep in mind that my children are small and usually go to bed around 8 pm.

This sign stood outside the elevator on our floor. "Refrain from loud singing in the shower" cracked me up! Naturally I took a picture for the blog.

*** I'll be back next week with lots of pictures from our trip.

Sounds like a nice place! I am glad that you didn't have to worry about circus animals assigned to your floor. : )
