BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - May 6, 2010 -- Country Inn & Suites Bowling Green opened its doors at 535 Wall Street on May 3, 2010, adding 85 rooms to the city’s hotel inventory. A member of Carlson Hotels Worldwide, the four-story property features six different room types consisting mainly of suites and double queen rooms in addition to whirlpool and kitchenette options.

Guests of the new Country Inn & Suites will notice upon arrival the hotel's country, cozy feel as they pass rocking chairs before entering the manor-like lobby featuring rich wooden accents that continue throughout the property. Fireplaces in the lobby and breakfast area plus complimentary afternoon cookies enhance the warm atmosphere of the brand.

The hotel’s complimentary amenities include a hot breakfast, high-speed internet access, weekday newspaper, indoor pool and whirlpool, and 24-hour fitness and business centers.

All rooms are equipped with a flat screen television, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, ironing board, and iron. Sofa beds are in all rooms except the standard double queen rooms and many have rather spacious bathrooms

“In this market, we knew the ability to house several people per room was important with the amount of families and sports teams traveling to the area,” owner Paul Patel said. Patel also owns and operates the Red Roof Inn and News Inn on Scottsville Road, which sit in front of the new Country Inn & Suites. “Our spacious courtyard between properties and now varying tiers of accommodations also position us well to host many of the automotive groups visiting Bowling Green throughout the year.”

Meeting space is available in a 900-square-foot room that seats up to 75 people. Guests can also enjoy the convenience of the Read It and Return Lending Library and a variety of beverages, snacks, and sundries can be purchased on the honor system at any time. Low-energy use light bulbs, optional linen services, and a recycling program make up the hotel’s environmentally friendly efforts.

On Tuesday, May 11, interested persons can stop by the hotel from 3:30-5:30 p.m. and register to win a free spot on the WBVR-FM “Scooter and Myla Cruise” this fall to Mexico.

A Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting and grand opening will take place later on June 17 with tours available, live entertainment, food, drink, and giveaways.

Located less than one mile off Interstate 65 behind McDonalds on Scottsville Road at 535 Wall Street, Bowling Green, KY, 42103, Country Inn & Suites is conveniently situated within walking distance of restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
