Country Inns & Suites by Carlson celebrated its 25th anniversary this week, and the upper midscale brand partied hard at a big event held at the Mall of America on Wednesday.
Scott Meyer, vice president, Midscale Brands, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Americas and 30 Country Inns & Suites Brand Ambassadors invited shoppers to open a Country Inns & Suites guestroom door that was set up in the middle of the Rotunda. When the door opened, guests were greeted by a surprise performance by the River City Rhythm drumline, a non-profit youth percussion ensemble.
