“Wowwed in Wallingford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The Homewood Suites was a welcomed surprise for my daughter and I during 2 recent stays as she started school in the area. The staff is professional, welcoming, friendly and the services are top rate. The staff here could transfer seamlessly to the most elite hotels in the world and not miss a beat. Amenities are great - breakfast, supper - cute little pool, wonderful extras. But nothing beats the genuine warmth of the staff. A truly relaxing stay. We'll be coming back!

I have to commend Drew at the front desk. He is the reason I am a frequent at this hotel while working in Wallingford and Meriden. He is the picture perfect example of what customer service should be. I hope Hilton treats him well..... I would love to recruit him for my company.

Thank you for the kind words (and hands off - Drew is ours). We are so fortunate to have such a great front desk team and Drew is one of the best and he has the accolades to prove it. He has also earned some great nicknames, my favorite is the Drewminator! Thanks again - we love it when folks feel like this is a warm and wlecomed place to be while in Wallingford. Safe Travels!

Have stayed at this property 2 years in a row now for a soccer tournament. The property was even better this year, and it was great last year. They have recently redone the lobby and rooms and it shows very well. The staff is fantastic and everyone is extremely friendly. Will be back next year!

We have stayed here numerous times now and we have no complaints. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast is great. The pool is small but my children love it. The room is wonderful for families and is so clean.

We were greeted as though we were checking in to the Waldorf Astoria, not a Homewood Suites! The gentleman at the desk was alert, attentive, and overall on top of his game. I have been a Diamond level for many years and have checked into all types of Hilton properties all over the country and this greeting / check in experience was by far the best ever. The property itself is nicely maintained, albeit a bit off the beaten path. You'll most likely need to travel a ways to find a dinner if you don't eat on the property.

Thank you so much for the kind words. Drew was on duty at check-in and he is fabulous - we are so fortunate to have a great team at our hotel. Drew is able to undderstand what it is like to travel and he respects what guests have gone through to finally arrive at our hotel - this care comes through when he checks guests in. I have forwarded this review and Drew has now received regional recognition for his performance. Thanks again and we hope you won't wait too long before you return to Wallingford. Safe Travels!

Thank you for the kind feedback. We agree - our location right off I-91 and Rt 68 makes us pretty central in Connecticut. We are between New Haven and Hartford and close to Choate, Quinnipiac, Yale and Wesleyan along with many of the local businesses in Meriden and Wallingford. We are glad you found our place comfortable. Thanks again for the kind words. Safe Travels! Debbie Johnson, GM

This staff/hotel is AMAZING! We have stayed at many different hotels and this one is one of the best. We came to stay here because my husband's grandfather passed away and we needed a hotel ASAP. I was able to book it the night before online for my husband and our two children; however, when we got to CT, my in-laws needed a place to stay and they had a dog. I told them that Homewood Suites has 2 bedroom suites and takes dogs and that I would ask upon check-in if we could switch our reservation. The woman who checked us in (I'm sorry but I cannot recall her name) was amazing! She not only gave us the last 2 bedroom suite, she was so kind and understand, and wonderful to our children! My in-laws were so grateful! During my check-in process the woman checking us in and myself were chatting and I mentioned we were here for my husband's grandfathers passing. The next day they gave us a sympathy GIFT and CARD signed my the staff!!! It was the sweetest thing, my mother-in-law, and my family, were so overwhelmed with their compassion. I did feel terrible for the staff, all we wanted to do was take our children to the pool (as a way to decompress during this difficult time); however, some guest decided to use the facility as a bathroom and took soap into the pool/hot tub so it was closed twice during our stay! The gentleman at the desk went out of his way to find things to do with the kids (in the area) to take their mind off things. As frustrating and inconvenient the pool situation was, the staff was so understanding and helpful. The manager (I believe) even gave my children rubber duckies! They were thrilled! What a wonderful stay in such difficult times, this staff should be commended!!!
