Comfort Inns & Suites By Carlson is a moderately priced hotel chain that caters to everyone from frequent business travelers to vacationing families. Comfortable surroundings and desirable amenities make the chain a good choice for business travelers needing extended-stay accommodations. It is one of the many hotels that are part of the Carlson organization, a company that began in 1960 with one hotel in downtown Minneapolis. Since that time, the company has grown and amassed a huge portfolio that includes many of the most widely recognized hotel brands, and Country Inns & Suites is one of them. It is now recognized as a leader in mid-market brands, with a reputation for providing guests with caring, comfortable and consistent hospitality.
In 2010, Comfort Inns and Suites By Carlson began their "Be Our Guests Breakfast Program." It offers guests a free breakfast buffet consisting of everything from homemade waffles to build-your-own breakfast burritos to omelets. Breakfast is no longer served on disposable dishes; instead, it is served on classic-style dinnerware. There is also a "Grab-and-Go Bar" for people who are in a hurry. They can pick up a hot beverage, fresh fruit and granola bars.
All hotels in the brand are characterized by traditional architecture. Guests are greeted by a warm, home-like lobby with wooden floors and a large fireplace. The warmth continues in the guest rooms, where natural earth tones blend nicely with wood floors. All rooms have comfortable furniture and neutral colors create the relaxing environment that weary travelers crave. The large fireplace and openness of the lobby create a warm and inviting feeling that invites guests to relax in front of the fire.
Country Inns & Suites By Carlson offers would-be guests the opportunity to take advantage of any of a huge range of deals that combine hotel accommodations with tickets to family-oriented amusement parks, romantic dinner reservations for two, wine tastings and countless other possibilities in locations all over the United States. Packages often include little extras such as bonus points, a special arrival package or a goodie basket.
Every hotel in the brand has a fitness center, a business center and free high-speed Internet access (in North America only.) These amenities appeal to short-term travelers and business people on extended stay at the hotel. A "Read-It & Return-It" lending library is available at all properties in the United States and Canada. Guests are able to borrow material from the library, read it at their leisure and return it the next time they visit another Country Inns & Suites By Carlson hotel anywhere in North America.
Country Inns & Suites is committed to providing guests with comfortable surroundings; outstanding customer service; appealing amenities such as breakfast, free Internet and the fitness center; places to relax, and a warm and inviting environment for a very affordable price. These are things that contribute to the immense respect that the brand has, and that have established it as a leader in its price range.
