“Pleasant Surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

This was our first stay at a Homewood Suites. The pictures did NOT do it justice. The accomodations very just lovely and the WICHITA Homewood has an especially nice walking path along and around a scenic pond. We enjoyed a little outdoor time as well. We already said next time we travel we will look for a Homewood Suites.

Thank you for your recent review of our property. We enjoy being able to hear about the great time you had with us. We hope you were able to join our Waterfront Club while you were here to be enrolled in a monthly drawing for a complimentary night stay. You are correct when you say our outdoor accommodations are beautiful and very relaxing. We also have our Walker Library and Grand Lodge area that have great views to be able to relax without facing the heat of the outdoors. We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Wichita.

Children love the room, as it feels like home away from home! There's more than just an great indoor pool. The kids enjoyed shooting hoops outside and putting on the putting green. My wife and I enjoyed a stroll around the duck pond. I'd recommend the hotel to anyone for leisure or business. Food is great with many choices and the staff is helpful and friendly!

Stayed here once on Valentines day and fell in love. Its clean, its nice, the outdoors is beautiful and the staff is some of the friendlest (at all times) hotel staff I have ever dealt with. We had my daughter's 13th birthday in one of the two bedrooms suites after that. Very accomodating and helpful... and our group of 13 year olds couldnt have been easy to deal with LOL.

This was the 2nd time we stayed at a Homewood Suites hotel and I was surprised to find that this hotel was even nicer than the first one that we stayed at! We will definitely look for Homewood Suites whenever we travel from now on. Great experience!

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.

Room Tip: Have a walk around the lake after breakfast in the morning and grab a coffee to go on the way back t...

We had a wonderful long weekend in Wichita at this lovely hotel. The Waterfront is a beautiful and very convenient location, but what makes this property stand out is the warmth, friendliness, and helpfulness of the staff. I have rarely experienced this level of service and I commend the staff and management.

Thank you for your great review of our property from your recent visit. The Waterfront makes it very easy for our guests to relax in it's upscale residential setting without sacrificing the convenience of walking to restaurants and shopping. With many great restaurants such as PF Chang's, Bonefish Grill and Abuelo's at your fingertips and many great activities for children such as All Star Adventures and The Alley within 1 mile from us you are guaranteed to not be disappointed. Don't forget to stop by the front desk to see what specials are running for local attractions. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
