Iconic Downtown Springfield Hotel Gets New Brand

It’s a new chapter in the long and sometimes turbulent history of a downtown Springfield hotel. 


The President Abraham Lincoln hotel on East Adams once again has a major hotel nameplate… now affiliated with DoubleTree by Hilton.  The hotel started as a Ramada Renaissance hotel… but lost its affiliation in the midst of a long battle with state officials over repayment of a state-backed loan.  The state eventually foreclosed and sold the hotel at auction, setting the stage for a major makeover and the addition of the DoubleTree brand. 


DoubleTree operates 350 hotels worldwide…and is known for giving guests a warm chocolate chip cookie upon arrival.
