We stayed here for three nights while helping a relative move to a new house in the area. We were VERY pleasantly surprised by Homewood Suites. The rooms are very well appointed. Our room had a kitchenette with a two-burner countertop range, full-sized fridge, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, pots & pans, dished and flatware. If you're planning on staying a while, but you're going to be in meetings the whole time, you can even have the staff go grocery shopping for you.
I would have given this two year old facility 5 stars, but for two relatively minor debits.
First, both my wife and I found the hot water in the shower to be erratic and, therefore, potentially dangerous. It took a bit of fiddling to get the temperature set, but then the temperature would drop or rise throughout the shower. At times, the water was so hot it hurt. Not much you can do about it, though.
The second item was the road noise from outside. This facility is at an intersection in an area with quite a bit of tractor-trailer traffic. The noise they making braking at the traffic light, then accelerating away from it is really quite disturbing when you're trying to get to sleep at 11pm or back to sleep at 2 or 3am. MY ADVICE: Ask for a room on the side of the building AWAY from the roads. I'm sure that would completely resolve the problem.
The free breakfasts here are about the best I've encountered. Hot entrees change daily. Juices, cereals, breads, good coffee. Really a very good breakfast!
They also have a free light dinner available, as well. However, we were tied up with "the move" until late each evening, so we never had a chance to check it out. They also have a pool (with towels available) and a very nice workout room.
I would certainly seek this place out to stay again, if I needed lodging in the Allentown area. However, I would make sure to request a room on the quiet side of the building.
