We had a large wedding at a country barn venue in Round Rock called the Lone Oak Barn (really nice!). We selected the Homewood Suites as the base camp for many of our guests. The wedding party had appx 40 rooms at the Homewood Suites for the weekend and everything was awesome. The sales manager Jackie, the front desk reception people John, Carlos and all others who worked at the hotel were all so helpful. The hotel could not have been more perfect for our needs. The rooms were very nice and well maintained by the housekeeping and maintenance staff. The beautiful lobby/eating area was just what we needed for guests from all over the country to mingle at any hour of the day or night. The breakfast and evening wine/beer reception were great, the work out facility was nice, and the basketball court/pool area was just what was needed to keep the younger kids and more energetic adults occupied. The full kitchen and laundry facilities also were a plus. Nearby old town Round Rock and Georgetown were great nearby areas for restaurants and shops. Some in our party had a great evening at the nearby AAA minor league baseball park for the Round Rock Express (feeder team for the Texas Rangers). This ballpark was as nice as any major league field with numerous food and drink venues. The Salt Lick BBQ restaurant in the ballpark parking lot is as Texas as Texas BBQ gets. Downtown Austin is a short 20 minute drive and the hotel is right off the toll road to the Austin Airport so one can avoid all traffic (about a 25 minute drive). This hotel serves a lot of people visiting Dell's headquarters which is right next door, so they really know how to provide service. One needs to understand that this is not a downtown Austin luxury high rise type hotel. But that being said, I give these folks a 5 star rating. There is so much that can go wrong with accommodations when it comes to a large wedding party, but that was not the case at the Homewood Suites. Jackie, John, Carlos and everyone else here knocked it out of the park and helped make our wedding very, very special. I cannot thank them enough.
