“Wonderful Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We stayed at the Homewood Suites for one night while in Wichita visiting the WSU campus. The customer service at this hotel is top-notch. We were greeted and served promptly when checking in. Everyone at the hotel was so friendly and always greeted us and wished us well. Our suite was clean and in perfect working order. My only complaints are that the mattress on the bed seemed a little "tired". Definitely not the worst hotel bed I've seen, but not the best either. Also the comforter was very heavy and made of "slippery" fabric, so it was constantly sliding off the bed in the middle of the night. I much prefer a duvet with a cover that can be removed so that you know it has been washed in between guests. The comforter here looks nice, and it appeared clean, but I still wonder if they are washed between guests. The hotel is close to several dining establishments so we did not have to travel far after check-in to find somewhere for dinner. The breakfast in the morning is top-notch. Lots of selections and very fresh.
If my daughter chooses WSU for grad school next year, I am sure that we will be staying at the Homewood Suites again!

We hope your daughter chooses Wichita State, it is a phenomenal school and we’d love to have you return “home” to us!

I have stayed at other Homewood Suites; but this one is by far the best one I've ever been to. The lobby is warm and inviting; free hot breakfast with PLENTY of options for everyone in the family and the rooms are spacious (I had a King Suite but I have stayed in the Double Queen Suite as well). The staff is wonderful; they treat you like family. The pool/spa area is always well maintained. They also have a putting green and basketball court for entertaining the kids.

Because we have the PERFECT guests! Thank you for your review, it truly means a great deal to us. When you stay at Homewood, you are “family” and we want you to feel at home. Our motto is “Resort Luxury with the Comforts of Home” and your review reflects just that. You mentioned you have stayed in our King and Double Queen suites, has your family experienced our Two Bedroom Suite? It is the “ultimate” in family comfort as it includes two separate bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with two queen size beds. The kitchen and living area separate the two bedrooms creating additional privacy. Thank you again for sharing your experience, we look forward to welcoming you “home” for future visits.

very clean, very nice. spacious room & kitchenette with extremely friendly staff. the breakfast buffet was AMAZE. so many choices of foods & beverages with super helpful servers & staff. had never stayed at a homewood suites before & was pleasantly surprised. on the eastern side of wichita and close to I-35. interior is beautifully decorated. i will say, though, we stayed on the first floor and could hear every footprint from the room above us. also, in the early a.m. when all was quiet, we could hear couple in room next to us talking in bed. acoustics were not great. however, did not deter from my overall 5-star rating of this hotel!

Room Tip: i bet acoustics are best on top floor.

Thank you for your review; we are truly honored to have had the opportunity to be your first Homewood experience. The Homewood brand is quite unique and definitely offers guests an abundance of “home-like” amenities such as our complimentary Suite Start Full Hot Breakfast Buffet (served daily), Manager’s Welcome Home Dinner Reception (served Mon-Thu, 5p-7p), fully equipped kitchens in each suite and more. Each Homewood has its own identity in that we get to choose our décor elements so we were pleased to hear you felt ours was beautiful. Also, not every Homewood has presidential suites and we have FIVE! Each designer themed with the addition of a large dining area and whirlpool tub. Thank you for your 5-star rating … we absolutely have the VERY best guests and appreciate you greatly!

The Homewood Suites is a great place to stay when you have to be away from home. The staff is friendly and courteous, the evening reception is exceptional and the accomodations are very welcoming. I highly recommend it.

We are pleased to hear you attended a conference at our location. Our Lighthouse Banquet Room and Blue Beacon Board Room provide the perfect setting for corporate meetings as well as social gatherings. You mentioned our patio; did you know we are one of Wichita’s premiere wedding locations? The beautiful lit gazebo transforms into a stunning backdrop for an altar and the stamped concrete area is the perfect spot for guest seating as they take in the memorable prenuptials. Thank you for sharing your experience, we hope you return during wedding season so you can experience the touching ambiance.

This is a very comfortable motel with anything you need. Staff is helpful & it's in a great location. Complimentary breakfast is always great & changes daily. Beds are very comfortable. Plenty of room to stretch out. Rooms are large and very comfy. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

And we LOVE our wonderful guests! Thank you for posting your review. We appreciate feedback … especially when it’s the “good” stuff! We’re pleased you enjoyed our complimentary Suite Start Hot Buffet Breakfast (served daily). Our Pantry team takes great pride in providing exceptional meals, versatile choices and authentic customer care. Did you know we serve a complimentary Welcome Home Dinner Reception with beer and wine Monday-Thursday? If you stay with us Friday-Sunday being located in the beautiful Waterfront Development provides fine dining only foot steps away. Thank you again for your review, we hope to have you return soon.
