In a hub of celebratory festivities, Choice Hotels International unveiled its newest extended stay hotel, Main Stay Suites Clarksville. Located in the SW Quad just off of Interstate 24, at 115 Fairbrook Place, the 96-unit hotel offers amenities which place it in direct competition with hotels of a much higher price bracket. Main Stay Suites Clarksville is marketed for the extended stay business professional and military visitors to our area, but many will find its offerings quite appealing, with an allure as a cozy weekend or hide-a-way destination.
All rooms are equipped with a full kitchen including range top, microwave oven, full-size refrigerator, coffee maker and double sinks. Additional appointments include free cable TV, wired and wireless internet access, queen and king-sized beds, pull-out sleeper sofas, phone and additional phone jack, work space writing table, steam iron and ironing board, stacked clothing drawer units. Guests may choose from Standard Single Queen, a Queen Suite, a Double Queen and a King suite in their choice of rooms. The King suites come with dual TV displays.
There are also specially outfitted ADA compliant rooms which include the standard features adjusted for the physically challenged, height-adjusted kitchen facilities and sink and bathrooms outfitted with handrails at the bathtub.
The rooms are spacious and open, avoiding the typical gauntlet effect of most hotel rooms. The entrance does not place the guest in a narrow confining walk-in but rather offers an open view of the room upon entry. The effect is at once welcoming and refreshing. The color scheme chosen for this hotel was made by the partners, with Choice’s approval, and differs from the corporation’s standard color palette with refreshingly bright yet subtle visual impact.
The art work on display throughout the hotel is modern and visually attractive, ranging from floral designs and still life sculpture to modular wooden and metal hand-worked art pieces to geometric paintings which all complement the overall color scheme to great effect. An air of cheery, uplifting ambiance prevails through out the corridors and hallways, lending the feeling of a personal decorating touch to every area of the hotel. Almost as if you are staying at a friend’s well appointed home, as it were.
Main Stay Suites Clarksville offers its guests complimentary amenities that include a conference room- capable of seating up to eight, business center faxing service, a fitness center with cardio workout equipment, indoor swimming pool and outdoor jacuzzi hot tub, and laundry facilities to wash and dry personal clothing. The front desk has your typical functions of check-in, registering and check-out and local area information. Additional to those features is the cooler display of drinks, juices, snacks and microwave entrees.
The hotel’s location offers guests the added convenience of being situated close to many restaurants including Logan’s Roadhouse, Applebee’s, Tandor, Rafferty’s, Golden Corral, Steak and Shake, The Golden Rule, Old Chicago, Longhorn’s and Outback Steakhouse. There is also its proximity to the Wal-Mart Supercenter, Governors Square Mall, Best Buy, Pier 1 Imports, Hampton Square with Kohl’s, Red Lobster and Books-A-Million. Further down Wilma Rudolph Boulevard are K-Mart Supercenter, Dollar Tree, Electronic Express, US Bank, Office Depot, Green Bank, Ryan’s Grill Restaurant, PetSmart, Harbor Cafe, China King at Lowe’s Plaza, Chilli’s, Hananoki Japanese Steakhouse, Kroger’s, Sam’s Club, Cracker Barrel Restaurant and Gateway Medical Center.
