Comfort Suites Corvallis has a new virtual concierge, designed by a Corvallis company, and is seeking suggestions for what to name it.
The canine concierge will greet hotel guests on the Concierge ToGo app, created by the company HospitalityVision. Guests can use the app to view hotel amenities, check daily meeting times, book a room, request services, make dinner reservations, check out events, restaurants and shops, and more.
Doreen Cowan, the Comfort Suites general manager, said the canine concierge makes sense for the business because the hotel is pet-friendly. "Everyone likes dogs and travel with pets is on the rise," she said.
But the dog needs a name, and a prize package awaits the person who suggests the winning name.
The winner will win a Corvallis getaway — a free night at the hotel, dinner at Los Tres Reales, tickets to a Corvallis Knights Game and an OSU-themed gift box from Bella Vino Gift Baskets.
Entries must be received by 8 a.m. Friday. The winner will be selected that day.
