Stayed at this Homewood Suites on a business trip, and although I've been a long time Hilton customer, I've never stayed at Homewood before. Received a VERY warm welcome, and I was impressed with the lobby... kinda like a huge living room, and definitely made me feel welcome. EXCELLENT restaurant recommendation from the front desk clerk, who exclaimed "You're going to thank me later!". I didn't have a chance to thank her, but she was right!! So thanks!
Rooms are very good, and the only reason why it didn't receive an excellent from me is that the AC is exceptionally loud, and being in the South, during the summer, you need the AC on. The plus side is that it works great, and the room is cool and dry when it is on. The bad news is that is sounds like you are sleeping on a gate ramp in an airport. I ended up turning it off, and thankfully they have fans in the room above the bed, so I slept well.
Great hot breakfast with a nice variety awaits you in the morning, and the full kitchen was something that I would have loved to have taken advantage of... clearly Homewoods are for extended stays, and I think I'd be very happy staying there for a couple of weeks. They also have cooked meals at night, which are free, but I didn't get to try those. Looked at the menu, and it looked really enticing. Also missed the managers reception which I guess serves wine... would have liked to have participated in that just to see what it is like, but the work days were very long. Maybe next time.
What is cool about this place is that it is walking distance to several restaurants, as well as a Barnes and Noble, and there are theaters near by, so a spouse or friend traveling with you has plenty to do without a car. Generally, I'd have to say it is a really good central location, and only about 15 minutes from the airport.
The key question: would I stay there again? Absolutely. Great staff, nice rooms, terrific location. There is a lot of upside to this property and its management, and I will definitely start exploring Homewood Suites during my other travels!
