Drawing inspiration from Springfield’s past, MGM Springfield’s interior spaces incorporate architectural elements from the layered period styles of neighboring buildings, while taking cues from the city’s literary and industrial heritage. Mixing contemporary design and storied local narrative, the property is a sophisticated and inviting destination with a strong sense of place.

MGM Springfield’s lobby, dreamed up by Avenue Interior Design, is the prelude for the resort’s overarching design philosophy, creating a welcoming arrival for guests to congregate and socialize. Drawing Main Street’s historic character indoors, the lobby features familiar red-brick accents, eclectic area rugs, soaring glass windows and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves filled with vintage novels and leather-bound classics.

Created by MGM Resorts Design & Development, the five-story hotel tower boasts 252 rooms including 16 suites. The rooms are a nod to surrounding historical architecture spanning nearly three centuries.

The guestroom portfolio features a range of accommodations including the Resort Room, Main Street Queen & King and City Queen & King. The 350-square-foot rooms emulate apartment-style residences, with a luxurious-yet-cozy feel. Exposed concrete-planked ceilings add an industrial touch. The rooms include artistic asymmetry with vinyl tiles and an angled area rug as well as light and dark walls, enveloping the room in an intimate ambiance.

Artistic elements abound throughout the rooms. Quotes by poet Emily Dickinson adorn pillows, while the carpet in the room corridor features excerpts from her works. Accent art walls boast curious works such as animals printed on Merriam-Webster dictionary sheets and three-dimensional pieces by artist Corwin Levi.

Each of MGM Springfield’s 16 luxurious suites offer natural light and sightlines of the city’s surrounding architecture. Unexpected details, found objects and haberdashery-inspired fabrics lend a worldly yet residential feel. Selections include the Rotunda Suite, End Suite, Bay Suite, Garden and Spa Suites and the Presidential Suite.

The 1,150-square-foot Deluxe Garden and Spa suites, located on the second floor, offer access to the outdoor pool or garden through private patios. Each of the three accommodations are outfitted with a bespoke wood table crafted from the salvaged trees of former Bliss Street, which has become integrated into MGM Springfield’s site.

On the top floor, the 1,600-square-foot Presidential Suite captures the essence of Springfield native Dr. Seuss. A custom chandelier in the living space is adorned with an array of hats – a tribute to Springfield local Dr. Seuss’ story, “The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.”
