Stayed at this Homewood for 5 nights including Christmas Eve. Had plenty of room in the common livingroom for a tree and presents for 3 kids. Very clean. Beds and pillows were comfortable and good sized. Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to assist teenagers in locating and using the shuttle taking them to the mall and cinnema and back. Checked in later to make sure they had made it back.
The breakfast was the only problem I had with the experience. It was typical...scrambled egg with a meat (never bacon...only some undercooked microwaved sausage). The eggs and everything tasted very poor. Even my teenage boys who will eat anything passed on all the meats and eggs.
They did have a small dinner service that was not too bad. It was a Sante Fe chicken/steak strip (microwaved Im sure) on a buffet line with tortillias, cheese and other fixings. The kids did like that but I ordered pizza.
One thing I noticed was how quiet it was. I think they heavily insulated due to the airport. You cant hear any plane or jet noise at anytime of day and no noise comes in from other rooms or the hallway.
The kitchen is great. Fridge full sized and so is the sink and garbage disposal (nice touch). Every type of utensil you can think of is provided. There is the usualy upgraded food sales area available right by the desk 24 hrs selling ben and jerry ice cream and other snacks.
This was our first stay at a Homewood so I dont know how it compares to others. I see reviews saying it was smaller but it didnt feel small to me at all with 4 other people in there. The air was quiet and worked great. I didnt smell smoke at all and I'm pretty sensitive to it. The rooms looked new except for the shower which looked like a generic hotel shower from any time period.
All togther had a really nice stay.
