Two Comfort Hotels Open In Norway

Continuing to grow its portfolio, Choice Hotels Scandinavia—a master franchisor of Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE:CHH)—recently opened two Comfort brand hotels in Norway.

The Comfort Hotel Fosna is on the western coast of Norway in Kristiansund with a view of the waterfront and only 15 minutes from the nearest airport (domestic flights only). The hotel has 50 rooms, all with bathroom, telephone, cable TV and mini-bar. It also has a conference room of 200 square meters, a lobby bar, disco, pub and a rooftop restaurant. Local shops and restaurants are within walking distance. Room rates start at 875 Norwegian Kroner (approximately US$111).

The Norway Hotel Nobel is located in the center of Molde, also 15 minutes from the airport. The hotel features a breakfast room, a basement pub and 49 newly renovated rooms, each with a full bathroom, telephone, cable TV and mini-bar. Room rates start at 890 Norwegian Kroner (approximately US$113).

Both towns are located in the northern part of fjord-country known for its breathtaking scenery.  Kristiansund is called an “opera-town” because of the popularity of its amateur opera productions.  Molde is known as the “town of roses” and each year hosts a jazz festival that attracts international performers.
