I spent 3 weeks in the Homewood suites whilst in Dallas, I really like the idea of having a separate lounge and bedroom. This was my first stay (won't be my last either!)
The location of the Hotel is a little out of the way (right next to the turnpike), but to be honest there is plenty of restaurants a short drive away and Downtown Dallas is a 35 min drive (outside of rush hour traffic!).
Reception - The staff at reception are friendly and organised. Being a Hilton member made the check-in very easy as I'd already reserved the room online 36 hours before hand. If i had any questions or queries during my stay the staff were always prepared to help.
Room - The room was clean and tidy. Having 2 large flat screen TV's with plenty to watch is also very good, especially after a long day working. Having a small kitchen in the room was very handy, not that I cooked (mainly because there are so many good restaurants in Richardson) but having a large fridge was great for storing drinks and some food. The bed was incredibly comfortable and I slept extremely well. The room seemed to be quite well insulated from noise, could only really hear other rooms if they were scrapping chairs across the tiled flooring or kids running down the hallway. The shower and bath were good, could have done with a little more pressure in the shower though, but apart from that it was fine. The WiFi in the room is also very very good!
Restaurant - Breakfast had a reasonable choice, fruit, yogurt, eggs, waffle maker, juices, cereal, bacon or Sausages etc....From my perspective the Breakfast was fine and provided a good start to the day. sometimes though the restaurant was pretty busy in the morning and it could be hard to find a table. The evening meal was fine (only served Mon-Thurs), It made life easier especially if you've had a difficult day just to pop down have something to eat and a free beer or wine and then pop back to your room. The food was OK and filled a requirement, better than a McDonald's!
Overall - I really enjoyed my stay at the Homewood Suites and would definitely be booking again when I'm next in Richardson.
