Shaner Hotels has announced the appointment of Mark Burnett, as general manager of the new Comfort Suites hotel, located at 8 Lakeside Ave., and adjoining the DuBois Country Club.
In this role, Burnett will be responsible for all aspects of general hotel operations including guest services, sales, and marketing.
The hotel is owned by Dubois Resorts LLC and will be operated by Shaner Hotels of State College. It is currently finalizing construction and a spring 2016 opening is anticipated.
An alumnus of Penn State with a major in psychology and with a business concentration, Burnett joined Shaner Hotels in 2009.
Prior to joining the Comfort Suites Hotel at DuBois Country Club he served in general management roles at Shaner locations in State College; Glassboro, NJ; and Shreveport, La.
With 65 guest suites, the DuBois Comfort Suites hotel will have great appeal with business as well as leisure travelers.
It will feature the Comfort brand’s new look and feel, which includes a contemporary yet classic design, rich color hues and convenient amenities throughout the property.
A grand chandelier provides warm lighting in the spacious lobby, with sleek wood-style flooring, cozy seating arrangements around a fireplace, and friendly service welcome guests upon arrival.
The new design continues in the spacious suites with soft, soothing fabrics, full-size sleeper sofas, flat-screen TVs, refrigerators, microwaves, and plenty of convenient device-recharge capabilities on top of the desk and at the bedside, with USB and traditional outlets.
Guests will experience a refreshing rest in new bedding packages which complement Comfort’s Truly Yours Pick Your Pillow program, offering both firm and soft pillows.
The hotel will also feature free high speed internet, a free business center, a marketplace for snacks, drinks, and other sundries as well as a fitness center, Jacuzzi, and two swimming pools; an indoor/outdoor pool and a lap pool that creates an artificial under current for swimming in place.
Day-pass memberships will be available to local patrons.
The complimentary Comfort brand’s signature Your Morning Breakfast will give guests healthy and satisfying options including a delicious flavored waffle station, hot eggs and meats, yogurt and a variety of fresh fruits.
To help travelers who have an extra early start get ready for their day, the Comfort Suites hotel will also offer convenient Your Suite Success Grab It & Go breakfast bags. The Grab It & Go bag will be available before regular breakfast service times and includes a granola or breakfast bar, bottled water, a whole fresh fruit item such as an apple, banana or orange, a napkin and a mint.
There is a meeting room on property which will accommodate up to 50 guests, and a spacious hospitality area, which will be available for bridal parties who hold their receptions at the country club. This will complement the country club’s new ballroom, which is enclosed with windows on three of the four walls that overlook the club’s championship golf course.
With seating for up to 500 people, it is available to host a wide variety of events including weddings, receptions, reunions, holiday parties, sports banquets, golf tournaments, and meetings. These banquet facilities and the club’s Tannery on the Green Restaurant will also be operated through an agreement with Shaner Hotels.
