I found Homewood Suites in Fort Wayne because of its rating in TripAdvisor. The location was a bit out of my way, but I decided to try it. As a fairly loyal HiltonHonors member, I have stayed in various Hilton brands but not Homewood Suites.
The property is extremely well kept. I mentioned to the front desk how nice everything looks (like new) and inquired about the age of the property--assuming to hear two months, three months, six months max. Answer: three and a half years! Speechless. This is best maintained hotel I have stayed in that has been open for over three years.
My typical gripe about this style or type of hotel concerns the breakfast area and the options. Again, pleasantly surprised! Options included fresh cut fruit! Woohoo! As a vegetarian, I have fewer options at a free breakfast. Not here. It was great. My only recommendation might be to add wheat bread and low sugar yogurt options.
The rooms were spacious and felt like home--even had a fan over the bedroom area and a full kitchen. The bed was comfortable and I awoke with plenty of energy.
Too bad I was in town for just one night. There's always next time! I will be back.
