There seems to be no more than three suites in a pod making it virtually soundproof to slamming doors, elevator noise, or people talking in the hallway. The suites have a nice kitchen within including a frig and stove making it possible not to eat every meal out. However, it is right in a district full of fantastic restaurants, shops, and directly next door to a theater along with a block or two to the inner harbor shops. Te rooms have a separate living room, bedroom, and bathroom although our bathroom fan was on constantly with no control option for us so the door had to remain closed or you heard it all night. Only other negative was the bathroom is in the bedroom area so if someone is sleeping on the living room sleeper or up late and has to use it, they have to go through the bedroom to get to it. An awesome piece to this hotel is a private membership health club with all the most up to dat workout equipment connected to the hotel that is available free to guests. The pools are also terrific for lap swimming or the splash pool which is 4.5 ft deep for the kids to play in and a lovely hot tub with a waterfall. Only caveat is guests cannot use the locker rooms or take the classes but that is not an impediment as the is plenty to get the heart racing without those things. The brunch in the morning is nothing to write home about. Cereal, eggs, soggy bacon, bread, yogurt, and apples. The connecting hotel buffet had waffles, pancakes, fresh cut fruit but it is $12.95 to eat there though the two hotels share a lobby, hallways, and the aforementioned gym. The other negative is that parking is not in and out. You have to pay each time you leave the garage the $23 self-park fee. That is a problem when you are there and need to drive to other locations as we did to go to homes for the holidays. It became costly to park. The Renaissance hotel allows in and out all day and it would be nice if Homewood would do the same thing. Overall this is a great hotel to stay in with family or a conference when you want more space than just a nice room.
