Springfield’s hotels and motels are clustered in the northeast near the State Fairgrounds, southeast near Lake Springfield, and southwest near the main shopping malls as well as downtown. None are further than 20 minutes from the city center. The two largest and most upscale properties, which host most conferences, are the Hilton Springfield downtown near the Convention Center and the Crowne Plaza in the southeast. A number of suite and extended-stay hotels are available, as well as a few bed and breakfasts. Accessibility in general is good, with newer properties more likely to have better access. In Springfield there's no tradeoff between affordability and accessibility: some of the city’s most accessible lodgings, like the Microtel Inn, are also the least expensive.
