Conway’s Country Inn and Suites held its grand opening, sponsored by the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, on Wednesday.

Danny Patel of Nisha LLC is the owner and manager. He said the hotel aims to make travelers feel at home with a lobby that features a library, fireplace, free cookies, wood floors and wooden staircase, as well as a number of amenities.

"Instead of going with the contemporary look you see in a standard hotel, they’re going with more of what you see day to day in your home," he said.

The hotel, located at 750 Amity Road, opened Aug. 31. Patel said it is 50 percent occupied and has served a number of commercial business travelers. It has 67 rooms, half of which are suites. 

Amenities include a read and return lending library, complimentary high-speed Internet (wired and wireless), hot breakfast, indoor heated pool, fitness center, business center and a meeting room for 100 to 110, Patel said.

Suites include a honeymoon suite with a Jacuzzi; two-room studio suites for the business traveler with a door separating the bedroom from the rest of the suite and a pullout couch; and extended stay suites with a living area, table, kitchenette and two televisions.
