My wife and I spent an evening at the Homewood Suites in February. We attended a party near the hotel and were very happy to learn that the hotel provides a free shuttle to any location within 3 miles of the hotel. This was a big help for us.
We stayed in a non-suite but there was still a sink, microwave, and refrigerator. The bed was very confortable and the room (and hotel in general) was very clean.
This is an area that is in St. Louis County but very close to the city. If you want access to the Forest Park Area this hotel would be a great choice. The hotel is just accross the street from the Galleria shopping center and there are some good restaurants that are easily within walking distance. We did not eat the breakfast but did check it out and it looked great.
The best part of this particular hotel was the staff. J.R. was a huge help to us and was a great person to work with. He and the rest of the staff made us feel very welcome. I really feel that you can't go wrong with this place if you are in St. Louis for a function and do not need to stay downtown (near the river). This place is a gem. We will return again in the future and recommend the hotel to all of our friends.
