We stayed in Homewood Suites for a weekend in May to attend a wedding. There was my husband and I and our two small children. We stayed in the king suite.
*Suite - So many proclamined "suites" these days don't actually have a separate,private room, but this one did.
*Location - This hotel was right on the freeway, so easy to travel around Austin and get back to it. No restaurants within walking distance, but that didn't matter to us b/c we are used to driving wherever we go.
*Room features - The rooms were well-appointed. Enough space for us to get around in (unless the sofa bed was pulled out). The hallways were quiet at night, which we appreciate. There was a DVD player, which is good for those of us with children who travel with movies. I also enjoyed having Neutrogena bath products. That was a nice touch. The king-size bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows. Also, the A/C worked great.
*Room features - There were stains on the comforter on our bed. That's something a person just doesn't want to see in a hotel. Also, there were no sheets in the room for the pull-out bed and the blanket provided for it looked dirty. The fridge and A/C were loud when they kicked on, so light sleepers might not want to sleep in the living room area since that's where the most noise is. There was a mix of worn-looking and more updated furniture in the room.
*Breakfast - Though breakfast was free, we were on the run while in Austin and did not have time to try it.
*Pool - Again, didn't have time to try it.
*Front desk service - We didn't have too much interaction with the workers. They pretty much were just doing their jobs.
Overall, we would stay in this hotel again... for a night or two. It is good quality for the price.
