SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A piece of the Springfield skyline will soon look a little different.
Scaffolding has been set up to remove the large Marriott sign on the hotel facing Interstate 91 in downtown Springfield. This was part of the sale of Tower Square, with the Marriott hotel being renamed the Tower Square Hotel.
It was announced in June that MassMutual would be selling both Tower Square and the Marriott.
MassMutual spokesperson Jim Lacey told 22News that with the changes happening in downtown Springfield, the company saw this as a good time to sell.
