Comfort Inn – Truly yours™

Comfort Inn® is the largest Choice Hotels® brand and one of the industry’s most recognized brands. It offers our hotel franchise owners and developers a strong potential return on investment through the powerful equity of our flagship brand due to its wide distribution and awareness. Committed to driving performance, the Comfort Inn brand has developed a new cost-effective franchise prototype designed to deliver an increase in intent to stay. Fully tested with guests, hotel franchise owners and developers, they appreciate the cohesive, integrated and efficient design — intended to drive long-term brand performance, guest loyalty, and return on investment.

In 2014, Comfort brand hotels received an average of 64.2% of gross room revenue through the Choice Hotels Central Reservations System and other Choice Hotels marketing channels.*


The new look of Comfort Inn is a proven design. We conducted comprehensive research and testing with guests at every step of the design process. The warm, inviting, distinctive new look makes Comfort Inn properties even more competitive in the midscale space and is designed to drive a stronger potential return on investment for our hotel franchise owners. The brand extension, Comfort Inn & Suites®, provides owners the flexibility to include 25-50% suites to their room count. The new design enhances every aspect of the guest experience and includes:
