I have reviewed this hotel previously but having just returned from my 4th visit i thought it was time for an update. All i can say is this place continues to amaze me. I often think you have to take every review on here with a pinch of salt, a small thing can make or stay or break a stay, but here is where the Homewood suites at the waterfront really shines, consistency. The staff are brilliant, so helpful and friendly and can never do enough for you. My first visit was 3 years ago and it hasnt gone downhill one bit, in fact quite the opposite.
I am a very fussy traveler and emailed ahead with some pretty specific room requests, all of them were honored despite me no checking in until 9pm. I needed to print some things out for work one morning and there was problems with printing in the business center. Rather than give me the expected 'come back later', they kindly let me use the facilities in their own offices.
Everything else remains the same, great rooms, loads of space, well equipped and sparkling clean. Great breakfast in the morning. I tend not to eat at the managers reception in the evening as i love wandering over to the Fox and Hound 2 mins walk away (lots of other restaurants in walking distance) but the menus always look tasty. Gym is a little small but its more than enough to keep you ticking over and I used the pool more this time and loved sitting in the spa looking out over the lovely lakes.
I had a walk around the lake every morning after breakfast, its a lovely way to start the day.
I discovered the Warren movie Theater just 5 mins away this trip and was blown away. By far the best movie experience ive had, even beating the ones ive been to in Orlando, Florida. Also within a very short drive are plenty of other restaurants and shops.
Im struggling to find one thing wrong and the only thing i can think of is that the bedside clock was wrong... that's the only criticism i can raise :)
If you are in Wichita for business or leisure, do yourself a favor and stay at this brilliant hotel.
