COOKEVILLE – Country Inns & Suites By Carlson, a leading hotel brand, has marked its return to Cookeville with the opening of its new location at 1151 S. Jefferson Ave., the former Baymont Inn & Suites.
Country Inns & Suites had previously had a presence in Putnam County, just up the road at 1131 S. Jefferson Ave., but it changed over to La Quinta back in spring 2012.
“We are excited about this addition to our portfolio as we grow the brand in the south,” Scott Meyer, senior vice president, Midscale Brands, Americas, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said in a release. “We strive to provide services and amenities that appeal to leisure and business guests alike and this hotel is no exception with its proximity to restaurants, area attractions and business parks.”
The hotel offers 99 guest rooms and suites, a fitness center, outdoor pool, business center and a meeting room. The hotel also features amenities like high-speed Internet access and breakfast served daily. The change occurred Dec. 31, a hotel staffer said.
“We are thrilled to begin a relationship with the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and their family of brands,” said Nick Hatley, corporate director of operations, Growth Properties Inc., the firm that will manage the hotel. “The outstanding amenities and service culture the Country Inns & Suites brand is known for will make this hotel a great success.”
