Kissimmee, FL. (October 24, 2016) – Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) one of the world’s leading hotel companies, announced the renovation completion at the Comfort Inn Maingate, a Kissimmee hotel located minutes away from all the major theme parks. Thanks to close proximity and superior guest satisfaction, this hotel has earned Walt Disney World Good Neighbor® Hotel status.

Owned by the SLB Hotel Group LLC, the property is strategically located one mile east of the 429 Expressway and two miles west of Interstate 4 at 7675 W Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway in Kissimmee.
Just five years old, the property has already received an upgrade to its five floors of 197 guest rooms which now feature a contemporary yet classic design. The property includes the addition of “family-friendly” rooms complete with bunk beds in the alcove area, brand new landscaping, new furniture, décor and carpeting to the main lobby, an expanded and redecorated breakfast and coffee area, and the expansion and addition of a sundeck to the pool.
