We recently completed our second extended stay at the Homewood Suites in Columbia, Maryland for business reasons.
The hotel, which just completed a full renovation in September, is a very nice looking hotel, and also very clean. The rooms always smell fresh and clean when you first enter. Even after the renovation, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we were moved to a new room, halfway during our second stay, and it smelled just as fresh and had no bad odor from the renovation.
The staff is exceptional. I cannot even begin to describe the level of hospitality that every single staff member shows to each and every guest. I had the misfortune of witnessing some guests complain over things such as the room being too warm when they first arrived and of there being too much furniture in the room, In both those instances I witnessed the staff respond in a respectful and kind manner. They always did their best to accomodate the annoyed guest no matter how rude the guest became. The room may sometimes be a bit warm once you enter it but if you have patience and set the thermostat for the room to your desired temperature the room will quickly meet your expectations. We were on the top floor for half of our stay and even during the highest heat of the summer, our room was always very comfortable. We did notice a slight difference in how quickly the room cooled down from our original room which was on the first floor, but that was it. As for the rooms being too crowded with furniture, we had two children with us and two adults and we had no problems with the amount of furniture. We did do a bit of rearranging to meet our specific needs (kids trying to climb things they shouldn't), but it was easy to do and I am sure the staff would have offered to help if we had asked.
The hotel always provides a full buffet for breakfast and there is something for everyone's taste. From hot eggs and sausage to oatmeal and yogurt or cereal. If you can't find something then just ask, they will do their best to accomodate you. They also provide a full dinner Monday through Thursday and they make everything from pasta to rotisserie chicken and there is always a salad bar provided and dessert. If you don't want the food provided then you can always make your own in the fully equipped kitchen. The only thing that is not provided is an oven but we didn't really miss the oven during our three month stay.
The location of the hotel is wonderful and you can get to all of the Baltimore attractions as well as DC attractions quite easily on 95. If you have no idea what you want to see or do, then the staff can help with that too. They are very informative about area attractions including the best playgrounds for kids.
If you are looking for a hotel for business or pleasure, this is the hotel to stay at in the Baltimore area.
