Unable to find work in Southern California, I was recruited for a 1 to 2 year assignment in Stratford, Connecticut. I've lived all my life in the Los Angeles area and didn't know what to expect or if I'd be able to hack the New England area.
The Homestead Suites were ideal for me. It wasn't necessarily elegant like a high end hotel, but clean and tidy like I'd like my home to be. I stayed there almost 7 months. The staff became my family away from home.
While I was there, there were two unusual weather conditions: hurricane/tropical storm Irene, that cause flooding and power outages; and an unseasonably early Nor'easter that caused more than half of Connecticut to lose power. Neither caused problems at the Homestead.
There's no room service, but there are several places that deliver food. There's a nearby gym that has free admittance to people staying at the Homestead.
If I had a complaint, it was with the Internet. It may have been a problem with my computer, but the connection speed was pretty slow.
