My family and I decided to utilize Slidell as an overnight stop before a visit to the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans, and we booked at Homewood Suites, as it looked to offer the best blend of location, price, and amenities. Had no idea we'd discover a place that promises to be one of my family's favorite getaways.
My first taste of what Homewood Suites offers came in the form of the most effortless check-in I've ever experienced. I'm always prepared for an issue at the front desk when I've specified a smoking room, as most places leave me wondering why they even ask when they take reservations. Not here. I had exactly the room I'd reserved, and it took all of about 30 seconds for the desk clerk to retrieve my reservation and hand me the keys.
The hotel is extremely clean, the suite we booked was positively enormous, and the pool area is much nicer than most places I've stayed. As an added bonus, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. My kids enjoyed having plenty of room to spread out and relax, and we spent a couple very relaxing hours at the pool before we turned in for the night.
The beds are extraordinarily good. The overall comfort of the room is excellent, as well, as the furniture in the sitting room was very nice. Rounding out the conveniences were a kitchenette with 2-eye stove, full-sized refrigerator, microwave, and a full complement of dishes.
The next morning, we were greeted by the most expansive complimentary breakfast I've seen. Hot food, along with the typical continental breakfast fare, was plentiful and fresh. The seating/dining area was beautiful and comfortable.
All this together in any hotel would be a welcome find, but to have such amenities so close to New Orleans for a very economical nightly rate make Homewood Suites Slidell an excellent choice for the vacationing families.
