they should worry about moving out of mom's basement rather than staying in a hotel.

Genevieve is very talented and this was a smart move by Carlson Companies!

They should start with a name change. I have never stayed at a Country Inn, but it sounds dated, rustic and cheap. I chose modern and clean.

Radisson Hotel...will never stay in one again...HATE SLEEP NUMBER BEDS! Why put in something that most people do not have? Good bed and great linens (sheets, pillows, clean comforter)...it is a place to SLEEP and that is the bare bones basics. Always a good bed at Hampton anywhere....and I travel lots.

How many PHDs does it take to run a hotel chain? About the same number of PHDs as it takes to run a TGI Fridays's. Answer-None

So misguided. As a "Millennial" who likes to travel, I'll be staying at the least expensive hotels closest to the city center or interesting neighborhoods. Most of the Country Inns that I've seen are in the suburbs or near an airport. Also, Millennial is a terribly broad term, encompassing 10 to 30 year olds. It may not be as newsworthy to pander design to Gen X, but I think that is a more appropriate demographic here.
