Comfort Suites is a Ring of Honor recipient, one of just five in the nation given the award for superior service and going above and beyond. It is consistently rated as one of the top five in the nation. But don’t just take our word for it — take one step into Comfort Suites and you’ll feel something in the air.

The experience goes well beyond the brand new renovations that were completed in 2020 in all common areas and private rooms of the property. ”You feel a benchmark in hospitality — an immense sense of pride that our staff feels for the hotel and their work,” says Mike Szczesny, Executive Director of Sales.

The area’s only all‑suites hotel features spacious accommodations that are the perfect home base for a Happy Valley visit or adventure.
