can u suggest a decent hotel for my family?

I am Canadian and wanted to do a short trip before school starts. We have the 70s grandparents, my dear wife and myself, as well as two kids (5 and 2). Looking for two rooms, or a two-bedroom suite.

We plan to stay 2 nights in Rochester - Main objective is to visit Strong Museum of PLAY, Waterloo outlet shopping, and maybe also Eastview.

Thinking about Homewood Suites (2095 Hylan Drive or the one in Victor). Safety, Security, and Cleanliness are our key concern.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

As a resident, I haven't had much experience with many hotels around here, but given what you want to do, Victor would probably be a more convenient location, plus you wouldn't be far from the Village of Victor if you wanted to go for an evening stroll, have dinner or just stop for some ice cream. There's not much around Hylan Drive other than shopping centers and chain restaurants. Either area is a relatively short highway drive from the Strong Museum, and both areas are quite safe.

I would think that Victor would be a more central location. A little closer to the outlets, not too far from Strong, and right next to Eastview. I've stayed at Homewood's before in different areas of the country and think they're a fine choice for a hotel. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to book one for myself.

The Homewood in Victor also gets excellent reviews here on TA: tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g48780-d1382785…

Also from the reviews, it's brand new. I LOVE brand new hotels when I travel. :) I think that'd be a great choice.

I lived in Rochester for awhile, now I visit it every so often. Victor is probably your best bet. For one thing Eastview is much nicer than Marketplace for shopping and dining, and Eastview is just around the corner from Victor.

And you are much closer to Waterloo.

And Victor is only marginally farther to the places in Rochester.

Cool. Planning to ask the same question. Thanks to OP and everyone who replied (especially kat228 who recommended us to a wonderful hotel last year - The Del Monte Lodge) :)
