FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Branson, MO – The Comfort Inn at Thousand Hills, Comfort Inn West, and Best Western Music Capital Inn of Myer Hotels are pleased to announce that, as of January 1, 2008, they will be entirely smoke free properties. A majority of each property was already non-smoking so the transition into making all rooms smoke free was simple.
“We are excited to have made this change and look forward to the positive impact it will have both for our guests and team members,” stated Gail Myer, Vice President of Operations. “With these three hotels entirely smoke free, it creates a cleaner environment for our guests while also encouraging a healthy lifestyle among the staff.”
As award winning hotels, the Comfort Inn at Thousand Hills, Comfort Inn West and Best Western Music Capital Inn continue to prove each day that they are at the top of the industry.
“Our five properties were among the first in Branson to offer wireless high-speed Internet access,” noted Gail Myer, VP of Operations for Myer Hotels. “It’s another great step forward to now have three more of our hotels smoke free. As a company we strive to remain on the cutting edge. The Comfort Inn at Thousand Hills, Comfort Inn West and Best Western Music Capital Inn exemplify that goal.”
