Summertime, and the livin’ is EASY at City Lodge Hotels! | The Planner

City Lodge Hotels has burst into summer, with a new look and feel, enough to give you a double take. We’ve also got special offers galore to choose from, and our restaurants have beefed up their menus so you never need to leave your hotel. Let’s dive in!

‘Life is hard. Check into easy’ is our new tagline that reflects our understanding of an approach to our guests’ daily challenges before they reach our reception, call our reservations team, or book on our website.

We strive to make the simple extraordinary, and we do this by ensuring every guest has the hospitality experience, service and affordability that they need across our four hotel brands.

We’ve refreshed our four hotel brands with new taglines, giving you, our guests, more reasons to think ‘easy’:

  • Courtyard Hotels: The soft life made easy
  • City Lodge Hotels: Easy living
  • Town Lodges: The easy choice
  • Road Lodges: Basically easy
