Book your rooms, people. Walnut Street wonder child Hotel Vandivort was just named the 2016 Boutique Hotel of the Year by the Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association.

“It’s an honor that our passion project can be a point of pride for our city, and hopefully, an inspiration for the continued revitalization and development of downtown’s cultural renaissance,” says co-owner Billy McQueary.
Located in a 110-year-old building, Springfield’s Hotel Vandivort is the first upscale urban boutique hotel in the city, and it’s filled with an abundance of art, history and character that make it one-of-a-kind.
