“Great hotel - Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We need a big room, 3 adult, 1 kid and 2 teenagers (big like a tall adult), and we found it: a big suite with 1King, 2Queen and a bed/sofa was perfect for us, everyone had their space. All found something they could like (and love) at the breakfast and when you have teenagers a buffet is perfect. The playroom help too to keep them busy. Really you get a lot for what you pay. I'm looking to go back next trip.

I stayed at this place 6 times in 2014, often with at least one member of my family. For the location, cleanliness, hotel staff and amenities, it's almost as good as an Embassy Suite. The food could use some help. The shuttle to the Metro can be hit/miss. But overall, a very nice place to stay. The shuttle drivers are all very cool gentlemen...friendly. Tip them well.

My family and I loved staying at this hotel. We wanted a inexpensive getaway close to our home in Washington, DC. There areso many nice, cozy features that made the trip perfect ( a kids room, awesome outdoor seating etc, closeness to metro and shopping...) We wanted to stay longer but had to leave.

This is a relatively new property that is combined with a Hilton Garden. When we arrived, there was no one at the front desk and no employees in sight. I had to call the hotel phone number, which rang at the Hilton Garden, to attract someone's attention. I noticed the same thing the following morning. It appears that management is trying to share employees between the hotels....it's not working.

Our room was very nice. The furniture/bed were comfortable and everything was spotless. The AC worked well but was a little loud. The layout of the rooms helps to keep noise from the hallway to a minimum.

This hotel serves the standard Homewood breakfast. The area was clean and the items were refreshed regularly. This area is combined with the lobby and is very nice; however, there were not adequate tables and chairs for peak breakfast hours.

This hotel has implemented the electronic receipt policy. I don't like it as it requires a check out at the desk if you want a copy of the bill (I do!). I had to wait several minutes while the clerk chatted with another customer. This would not have been necessary had the bill been placed under our door.

Overall, we like this hotel and its location. We'll stay again but hoping that the issues mentioned could be adjusted.

Dear hbhakh,

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Homewood Suites Rockville during your recent trip to the area. We greatly appreciate your feedback, and I'm sorry that you were not greeted upon your arrival. We pride ourselves on delivering an exceptional arrival experience, and we clearly failed in providing that experience for you. We are a dual branded property, but each front desk is to always be properly staffed, and it will certainly be addressed to ensure our future arriving guests are properly welcomed. I'm glad that you found our suites to be very nice and comfortable, and I'm happy that our large layout helped with the A/C noise. It's great that you enjoyed the selection of food and cleanliness of the reception area during breakfast, but I'm sorry that the tables and chairs did not provide adequate space. I'm sorry that you do not like our paperless receipt program. However, we are happy to print out and deliver your receipt prior to your departure. This service can be requested at any time during your stay. Thank you so much again for your feedback, and we certainly look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Sincerely,

Michael Anderson

We visit Rockville each summer and enjoy staying here for the nice two room suites with kitchen, two HDTVs, and a nice, included breakfast each morning. The hotel is in good shape, and the staff is friendly.

We stayed here 10 days during our first family visit to DC. Overall, it was a good experience. The room was comfortable and clean, and the pool was indoors - nice for the kids.

The staff was hit or miss while we were there. The shuttle bus drivers were exceptional - always helpful, polite, personable, and full of good ideas. The front desk personnel weren't all well-trained and did not all know the area. NOTE: the hotel is 3 miles from the metro, and it's not really walkable!

Like the other reviewers, we enjoyed the breakfast as well as the evening "light dinner." The breakfast staff was really nice, but the woman who put out the evening food and was supposed to serve drinks to the adults acted frantic, put-upon if you requested a drink, and completely frazzled. A lot of the guests would line up at the kitchen door, knock loudly, and have to request a drink. She would pour the drink, but glare at all of us. When one family asked if they had Caesar dressing for the Caesar salad, and she said, "No. The blue cheese and vinaigrette are the only dressings we are going to serve this week." That made for a strange Caesar!

Overall, the value was good. Parking is free, and the shuttle drives you anywhere within 3 miles of the hotel. A Safeway is nearby, and the mall is also convenient.

Because we were visiting the monuments and museums in downtown DC, I recommend staying at the Homewood Suites in DC rather than this far out, though. If you have a meeting in Rockville or Gaithersburg, this is a good spot.

Room Tip: Do not stay in a room next to the adjacent Hilton Garden on the weekend. The banquet room often host...

Dear CMOMOM,

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Homewood Suites Rockville during your recent 10-day family visit the D.C. area! We greatly appreciate your feedback, and I'm glad to hear that the suite was comfortable and clean and that the kids enjoyed our indoor pool! I'm sorry for the inconsistencies with our staff during your stay. It's great that our shuttle drivers were exceptional, but we strive to be exceptional on all levels. Your input is valuable to us, and we will continue to train our front desk team members to ensure that we can deliver excellent service. I'm very sorry for the many issues you encountered during our evening reception. There is no excuse for that sort of treatment, and we have already made adjustments to ensure that it does not occur again. I'm glad that you did find good value at our hotel with our complimentary parking and shuttle service, and convenient location. Thank you so much again for your feedback, and we certainly hope to welcome you and your family back again soon!

Michael Anderson
