The five-story, 82-room hotel offers easy access to both I-94 and I-90 and includes valued amenities such as an indoor pool and hot tub, fitness room, and large meeting rooms. Complimentary hearty and healthy breakfast options will be offered to guests in a breakfast area every morning. A highlight to the hotel is an expansive outdoor patio area, which connects with BB Jack’s, a popular restaurant and bar that features an extensive game room, televisions for viewing sporting events, and occasional live entertainment.
“Cottage Grove is excited for opening of the Comfort Suites,” said Village of Cottage Grove President John Williams. “This hotel is a wonderful addition to the area and will provide comfortable accommodations to all who visit and experience all that the Cottage Grove area has to offer. Welcome Comfort Suites!” added Williams.
“To have a local lodging option for residents and businesses to host their guests for an extended period, is very exciting! We look forward to working with the team at the Comfort Suites and welcome them to Cottage Grove,” said Britt Leach, executive director at Cottage Grove WI Chamber of Commerce.
Construction on the property lasted a little over a year and was completed by Consolidated Construction Company, Inc., headquartered in Appleton, WI. The Comfort Suites in Cottage Grove is part of an updated effort by the brand to emphasize exceptional guest experiences. The hotel is being constructed with an insulated concrete form (ICF) system, which is considered a higher end construction product than the traditional stick-built wood frame structures utilized by most hotels. The ICF system provides superior sound insulation, temperature control, and energy efficiency.
"This property is a new prototype for Choice Hotels, and it was built to be extremely energy efficient and soundproof. The architects did a great job accomplishing those goals," said Wagner.
Rooms at the hotel can be booked online at www.comfortsuitesmadison.com or by calling the hotel directly at 608-839-0366. Guests at the hotel will be treated to premium bedding and a refrigerator and microwave in each suite. The hotel also offers free Wi-Fi.
"Our team has been working diligently to prepare for the hotel's opening and we are all excited to welcome community members, business members, and visitors to the beautiful, new Comfort Suites," said Kara Aaberg, general manager of Comfort Suites Cottage Grove. "We are proud to be a part of the new growth in the Village of Cottage Grove," added Aaberg.
The Comfort Suites in Cottage Grove is owned by Badger Hotel Group, LLC, and will be managed by S&L Hospitality, which is based in Verona, WI. This will be the eleventh property in the S&L Hospitality portfolio, which includes hotels throughout Wisconsin and also properties in Iowa and South Dakota.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony at the property and an Open House for the public will be held on November 18, 2021. View the sales flyer for the Comfort Suites Cottage Grove:
