The weather outside might be frightful, but the fires in our hotel fireplaces are oh so delightful! After a long flight or road trip out in the winter cold, Country Inns & Suites By Carlson is here to make you feel warm and comfortable during your stay. Here are five ways that we can help you beat the winter chill this season:

Curl up in front of the fire.

After checking in to your Country Inns & Suites hotel, take a minute to relax in front of the fireplace in the hotel lobby. You can even grab a chocolate chip cookie or a hot cup of coffee before you kick your feet up and let the toasty fire defrost you from the winter cold.


Get lost in a good book.

Did you know that Country Inns & Suites hotels in the United States and Canada offer a library for guests to use? Stop by the Read It & Return Lending Library in your hotel’s lobby and pick up one of the many great books available from our partners at Random House. Whether you’re looking for a good mystery novel, a fun bedtime story for the kids, or an entertaining book for your preteen, we have something for everyone in your family. Curl up in the lobby or your guest room and get lost in whatever story you choose. The best part? If you don’t finish a book by the end of your stay, you can take it home with you and return it the next time you visit any participating Country Inns & Suites hotel.

Enjoy a dip in the indoor pool.

Swimming in the wintertime? It’s possible with our indoor pools! Available at many of our hotels, an indoor pool is the perfect treat for your kids after a long day of visiting family and friends or exploring a new place. The warm water will provide hours of fun for you and your kids as you splash around, play pool games, and more. If the winter chill still has you shivering, slip into the whirlpool for a relaxing and warming experience.

Get cozy in our comfortable beds.

There’s nothing like a cozy and comfortable bed in the wintertime. No matter where your day took you, you can rest assured that you’ll get a good night’s sleep at your Country Inns & Suites hotel. If you’re still feeling a little chilly, grab the complimentary extra blanket in your guest room closet. You’ll be toasty warm and asleep in no time.

Warm up your morning with a hot breakfast.

Start your winter morning off right with a complimentary hot breakfast. From build-your-own omelets and breakfast burritos to sweet French toast and fluffy waffles, there’s something to tempt everyone’s taste buds. If you’re visiting for a few days, you’ll find that the hot breakfast items rotate so you get new options each day of your stay. Round out your meal with some classic breakfast favorites, like cereal or fruit, and a cup of coffee or juice. It’s the perfect way to start your day!


We may not be able to control the weather, but we can make sure that you stay warm even on the coldest of days when you stay with us. Wherever you’re traveling to, we wish you safe travels and hope that we’ll see you soon!
