Project description: As one of five hotel properties currently under construction in Springfield, O’Reilly Hospitality Management is adding 111 rooms to the market with a northside Holiday Inn Express & Suites. It’s going up next door to the company’s Macadoodles store and Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchise at the northwest corner of Interstate 44 and Glenstone Avenue. The 5.8-acre property is owned by Glen44 Investments LLC, which is managed by O’Reilly Hospitality CEO Tim O’Reilly. The site previously housed a Budget Lodge that was demolished in 2011. Contractors say the hotel is designed with a roughly 1,500-square-foot meeting space, an indoor pool and fitness center. Upon completion, it’ll be O’Reilly Hospitality’s fifth hotel in the city. Meanwhile, O’Reilly Hospitality also is building a convention center to connect its new Fairfield Inn and DoubleTree properties at Glenstone Avenue and Kearney Street.
