Local hotel group Legacy Hospitality announces plans for new hotel next to Scheels Sports Complex at Legacy Pointe


In an announcement which comes just six months after the groundbreaking of the Scheels Sports Park at Legacy Pointe, a new hotel in that area has just recently been further confirmed.

The hotel ownership group Legacy Hospitality – based in Chicago – announced early Monday morning its plans to break ground on a new hotel next month at Legacy Pointe.

The new hotel – a Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott – will be located just south of and adjacent to the existing
SpringHill Suites by Marriott – 3921 S. MacArthur Blvd., Springfield, Ill.

The new Fairfield Inn and Suites is set to have 91 rooms with – as the company proclaimed – amenities for business travelers and families alike; it is slated to open in the summer of 2025.

Darin Dame, Partner at Legacy Hospitality, noted that:

“The families that end up traveling to Springfield to play games at the new sports complex will be able to walk to the fields from our new hotel. We’ve had great success with our other hotel at Legacy Pointe for the weekday business crowd who come to Springfield for their work.

We believe the new hotel will serve those business customers as well during the week, and both hotels will serve traveling sports families on
the weekends.

With the new sports complex planned, we wanted to provide another hotel accommodation nearby. It is our hope that our groundbreaking announcement is the first of many in Springfield, because we know that ourtravelers are looking for other amenities like restaurants, retail and entertainment options while they are staying with us.”

WMAY will have more on this and related stories as more information concerning them becomes available.
