Hotel Review: Comfort Suites Regina

This is from a stay this past summer but thought a review would be good as the Rewards Canada family had never stayed at any hotel of the numerous brands of the Choice Hotels Privileges program before.

As part of our summer Saskatchewan trip we chose the Comfort Suites Regina as it was situated close to where our relatives live and also for making trips to visit more family north of Regina.  The AAA/CAA rate was only $119 per night in the middle of summer and is a great deal for what the hotel offers. All rooms are suites, there is a pool with hot tub and waterslide, a continental breakfast with some hot items is also included.

The one thing that stood out is that Comfort Suites has obviously listened to the connected traveller as the rooms are meant for electronics and a lot of them if you need! Unlike some older hotels where you really need to search for an electrical plug and when you find one its nowhere near the bed, desk or chair, this hotel makes sure you can plug in anywhere in the room. We counted no less than 20 plug ins or USB jacks around the room.

The Rewards Canada kids spent tons of time in the pool and on the water slide!

Another 9 plug in options here!

The stay was made during a time when you earn Double Aeroplan Miles for Choice Hotel stays and those miles posted quickly:
I choose miles over Choice Privileges points as I really don't know if and when we would use those points since Choice Privileges is not one of our main programs.

Overall I have to say for the price you pay this was a really good hotel. The rooms were nice and large, the beds were comfortable and most important the hotel was very clean. The hotel is relatively new, maybe a year old as it was supposed to open sooner but the hotel pretty much burned to the ground during construction in 2014 so it had to be rebuilt. We will definitely make this our new hub for stays in Regina due to its proximity to family and being a good hotel overall.
