Laid Back: Affinia Hotels Has Its Mind on Comfort and Comfort on Its Mind
September 28, 2009 at 8:48 AM
We love to be comfortable in our living room at home, and why shouldn't we get just as comfy while we're away from home? The Affinia Hotels group seems to agree with us and they have declared the month of October Comforthon at their hotels in Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C.
Comforthon means you and a friend can book the Comfort Package, including in-room breakfast, late checkout, a pair of cotton pajamas each (complete with the Affinia Hotels logo) and best of all, two single serves of Ben & Jerry's ice cream. Nothing like some comfort food in some comfy clothes to make us feel relaxed, right?
During the Comforthon, each hotel will also provide various "comfort-enhancing activities", such as get-togethers for Sunday night football at the Affinia 50 in New York City, or family movie nights at the Affinia Manhattan.
The bonus is you will also be helping out others, because for every Comfort Package, the Affinia Hotels peeps will donate $10 to Common Ground, their community development partner which is helping deal with homelessness. Packages start from $189 a night in Chicago and from $279 a night in New York.
Not interested in staying the night but still want to help out? Drop off your old pajamas at Affinia hotels in New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C. All donated pajamas will be laundered and distributed to former homeless men and women who have transitioned from the street to housing facilities run by Common Ground.
