INFO FOR GETTING TO THE HOTEL

transfer options from Bradley to Town Square

BradleyAirport is only 20 miles away, 20 minute drive. I recommend Uber/Lyft, because it’s the cheapest (Typically around $40).

The Hotel is only a few blocks from Springfield’s Union Station, which is an Amtrak Hub. This would be a great option for folks traveling in from NY State or any points south to DC. The Loop (https://moovitapp.com/index/en/public_transit-line-LOOP-Springfield_Mass-4081-895508-762504-0) offers complimentary transportation from Union Station to the hotel.

There’s also Valley Transporter (https://www.valleytransporter.com/) which would be great if multiple people are arriving together. They also service to/from Logan but that's about a two hour drive.

  • Super JP (first 4 get FREE Registration <$40 value> and a FREE BBHF ticket <$25 value>)
