I stayed at this great new Homewood property over the past two weeks (while on a new job assignment in DC) and will definitely be back several more times over the coming months.
The hotel is brand new, having only opened at the beginning of April. I'm told the building was formerly a very run-down lower class hotel, but everything now is absolutely first-class; very clean & modern! The 2 queen bed studio rooms I have had were very pleasant, well laid out and spacious.
The staff is fantastic...extremely friendly and helpful. In particular, Eric, LaTonya and Natia in the dining area are great! They are always smiling and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
If there is any downside, it is the food service here. While certainly adequate, the breakfast buffet & evening dinner is not nearly as good as at most other Homewood Suites I have stayed at over the years. The first week I was there hot oatmeal was available each morning, but by the second week this had disappeared, replaced by microwave packets. As noted by others the only fruit at breakfast has been canned peaches or pears; no fresh sliced fruit has been offered (though whole apples, oranges and bananas are generally available). Some days there have been pastries available and other days none have been out. At dinner, the entrees have been generally fine, but the sides and salad are weak and inconsistent. I would say that there is a definite need for someone with restaurant management experience and a flair for quality to help them improve the food offerings and presentations.
The hotel's location is excellent; close to a great variety of restaurants & shopping, several local bus lines and the Gaithersburg MARC commuter train station, which I use to get to/from my job on Capitol Hill.
For the all facilities and amenities offered, the room rates are an outstanding value. I look forward to returning often in the future!
