SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Dec. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Begin a new family tradition this holiday season and have a fun weekend getaway at the Springfield Marriott. Springfield hotel packages and local attractions provide plenty of family-friendly fun and entertainment.
The Family Movie Night Package at the hotel near the Springfield Museum includes one in-room movie, two medium pizzas and a non-alcoholic beverage for each registered guest. With this deal, the hotel in Springfield offers families a relaxing environment to spend time together and reconnect. Families can decide on a movie and then kick back, relax and enjoy the film, food and conversation.
During the day, guests of the hotel in Springfield can visit exciting museum exhibits in the city. A Peek Inside Santa's Sack, located on the second floor of the Michele & Donald D'Amour Museum of Fine Arts, features every kid's favorite thing about the holidays – toys. On display are cast-iron toys dating back to the 1870s. Three toy companies represented in the collection are Kenton, Hubley and Arcade Manufacturing. Museum visitors will be able to see rare, vintage, still painted iron toys such as fire trucks, horse-drawn carriages, emergency vehicles, airplanes, trains and miniature wood and coal-burning stoves.
After checking out the toys, travelers can indulge their sweet tooth by visiting the Annual Gingerbread House Competition, The Magic of Gingerbread, on the second floor of the Springfield Science Museum. Bakers compete in three categories: professional, adult and youth. Each year, local bakeries, schools, youth groups, individuals and families compete to bake the best gingerbread house in their division. Museum-goers can vote on their favorite and then look on Facebook to see which houses win. While there, families can visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and make holiday crafts with the elves until 3 p.m.
Upon returning to the downtown Springfield, MA, hotel after a spirit-filled day, guests will appreciate plush bathrobes to help them get comfortable for the night. In-room Internet access allows lodgers to easily upload pictures from their trip, while desk-level electrical outlets make keeping batteries charged simple and convenient. Residents preparing to watch their movie can snuggle into their luxurious beds with cotton-rich linens, down comforters and custom duvets. An in-room mini-refrigerator provides a place to store any leftover pizza. A rollaway bed provides extra sleeping space when needed.
In the morning, guests of the hotel in Springfield can fill up on a hearty breakfast at Currents, the on-site restaurant serving classic favorites with a creative twist. Menu items include crisp bacon, chocolate chip pancakes, sausage, hash browns and eggs.
