Staying at the Country Inns & Suites Chicago O’Hare South to earn the 38,000 bonus points after three nights at Carlson Rezidor hotels by April 13 promotion reminded me of one of the features I most appreciate about this mid-scale hotel brand.

Thinking back to my hotel stays the past few years, I realize this was only my third stay at a Country Inns & Suites. My first stay at a Country Inns & Suites was in Calabasas, California in 2011. One of the main things I recall about the hotel was its library of books. That was the first time I learned about the Country Inns Lending Library.
The Calabasas hotel rebranded since to an independent hotel called The Anza. Just being in the same city as Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber sent the hotel independently upscale with a $6 million renovation. I also recall our room looked out directly over Highway 101, the main thoroughfare from the San Fernando Valley to the Los Angeles basin.

There is something pleasant and trusting about the ability to pick up a book from a hotel and take it with you. I will be staying at another Country Inns & Suites tonight in Iowa. Perhaps I’ll pick up a book to read for my flight home next week. That will be incentive to return to another Country Inns & Suites on my travels this month, even if only to return the book.
