When I travel, I generally look to find nice hotels with unique amenities. While I do stay in chain hotels frequently, I don’t always expect to find anything especially unique in them. So I was quite surprised to see all of the wonderful family-friendly amenities during our recent stay at the Comfort Inn and Suites Plattsburgh in the Adirondacks.
We traveled to Plattsburgh, in the Lake Champlain region of New York, over Christmas break to visit Ausable Chasm and to ski, and stayed in a king suite – pictured at left. The suite, which was one large room, included a king bed, a pull-out couch, a dining area with a table, microwave, and refrigerator, and a large bathroom with a shower and whirlpool bath. The room itself is huge, and offered plenty of room. Everything is very new, and extremely clean. The only issue I’d have about the room is the location, which was right across from the weight room and adjacent to the small water park. Noise wasn’t a huge issue, but we could definitely hear sounds from both locations.
The hotel amenities are the big draw here though. The aforementioned small water park is perfect for little ones. It includes two water slides and a splash area. My five-year old son and my seven-year old daughter absolutely loved it, and wouldn’t leave. But, as much as they loved the pool, they loved Champy’s FunZone even more. It includes an indoor miniature golf course, a two-lane bowling alley (sized for kids), and loads of arcade games. The Comfort Inn and Suites Plattsburgh also offers a full exercise facility, which is complimentary for hotel guests.
