Looking for the right hotel for your Holyoke, Massachusetts, vacation? It’s a walk in the park with our guide to the best places to stay in this Bay State city – bookable on Culture Trip.

On the National Register of Historic Places, this unassuming patch of land started life informally as Kerry Park, a shanty village occupied by the Irish immigrant workers helping to lay out the city. Once complete, it was dubbed Prospect Park in typically optimistic Victorian fashion. By the 1930s, and with the majority of the population being Polish, it was renamed again after Revolutionary War hero Casimir Pulaski. Today, Pulaski Park is a pleasant spot for a picnic, some autumn leaf-peeping or a riverside stroll.

Getting the family together is a breeze at this extended-stay hotel, just down the road from Holyoke, in Springfield. Its one- and two-bedroom suites are 50 percent larger than standard hotel rooms, and when you have the kids with you, that extra breathing room makes all the difference. Design-wise, they’re at least 50 percent more stylish, too, with Scandi-style tripod floor lamps, tiled gas fireplaces and lashings of wood and leather.

This hotel will have you torn. On the one hand, it couldn’t be better placed for exploring the outdoors. The 6mi (10km) Manhan Rail Trail, which follows the disused Pioneer Valley Railroad alongside the Manhan River and its leafy banks, starts almost immediately outside the hotel’s front door. Even closer to home are the hiking trails that crisscross Mount Tom, which is just across the road. On the other hand, the rooms here, with wingback leather chairs, warmly glowing bedside lamps and cloud-like beds, are hard to leave.

It’s unlikely you’ll need to use the fitness center here, with so much natural beauty to explore on your doorstep (including five state parks and reservations within a 30-minute drive). However, if you do get the urge to pump some iron, the hotel has all the (dumb)bells and whistles you’ll need. There’s also a modest indoor pool for doing some sprint laps. As for relaxing, the rooms are fresh and funky, with nature-inspired wallpaper and plenty of wood, bringing the soothing outdoors in.

A stone’s throw from the Chicopee Falls Dam, this Residence Inn is a charming sight for sore eyes (and hike-weary thighs), with its full-size indoor pool, flickering fireplace in the lobby surrounded by squishy sofas, and sleek, spacious suites. Once you’ve eased off the throttle and recouped some calories from the snacks at the hotel’s 24-hour Market, you might be ready to shoot some hoops at the outdoor basketball court or just chat around the firepit.

    Snuggled into the Quaboag Hills, this mountain inn is for small-town history fiends and railway buffs. Beautifully restored and repurposed, the former livery now exudes the charm of a 19th-century station. With only five guest rooms, the atmosphere is intimate. While carpets and marble sinks build a railroad bridge to the present, each room creaks with antique embellishments paying homage to Palmer’s transport heritage, from gold-framed mirrors and vintage timetables to locomotive paintings.

    As it’s within putting distance of the Springfield Country Club, the grass really is greener at the Courtyard. You might think the hotel would lean into the landed gentry look as a result, but the interior stylings here couldn’t be further from old-fashioned. In the lobby, tall cylindrical chairs look like a group of robots having a coffee meeting, while in the rooms, abstract wall art above the headboards resembles a sci-fi landscape. It’s the perfect place for rebooting your operating system.

Get nibbles from the reception and sit down in the lobby lounge in a cushioned, hanging swing bubble chair, or head over and give the foosball tables a whirl. There’s a business center, too, but even that’s been edited with millennials in mind, incorporating ambiently lit chill-out nooks and a terrace overlooking woodland. You’ll also have access to the indoor pool and 24-hour fitness center.
