Country Inns & Suites By CarlsonSM Announces Free Night Fall Offer, Encourages Business Travelers to Take a Free Night for Themselves

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the world’s largest and most dynamic hotel groups, today announced that Country Inns & Suites By CarlsonSM is bringing back the successful Free Night Fall Offer in an effort to reward loyal midweek guests.

Guests who complete a stay of two or more consecutive nights on the Free Night Fall rate, Sunday through Thursday between October 1, 2012 and November 29, 2012 and register their stay will receive a reward certificate for a free night. The booking period for this rate begins September 16, 2012. The reward certificate can be used for a one night stay between December 15, 2012 and February 15, 2013 at any Country Inns & Suites in the U.S. or Canada.

A recent Chicago Tribune article referenced a Kelton Research survey stating that 65 percent of working Americans had unused vacation days at the end of 2011.

“With the Free Night Fall offer it is our hope that we can give back to our loyal business travelers and perhaps they can use the reward certificate to plan a getaway and use some of that hard earned vacation time” said Scott Meyer, senior vice president, Midscale Brands, Americas.

Country Inns & Suites leads the industry by continually introducing innovative services and amenities to meet the needs of its guests particularly business travelers. In late 2011, the brand completed rollout of classic diningware and silverware in all of its hotels in the U.S. to accompany its complimentary Be Our Guest hot breakfast. The introduction of classic diningware represents an industry first among major brands within the midscale hotel segment. The brand also offers free high-speed Internet access, weekday newspapers and fitness center access at hotels throughout the Americas.
