“Another great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

This was the second time we stayed at this hotel. It is an excellent hotel. I only have good things to say about it. Great rate. Very convenient - close to 95 and not far from BWI Airport. A bonus is that the hotel is located in a 'restaurant park' that has a McDonald's, Bob Evans, Applebees, and a TGIFridays that you can walk to. Our room was a large queen suite and was perfect for my husband and me and our 20 something daughter. The room had a sleeper sofa and a full kitchen. Room was super clean. Hotel was very quiet. Staff was friendly. The free breakfast is another bonus. Breakfast was very good and included fruit, yogurt, cereal, eggs, breads. waffles.... and there is a large nice room for eating. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks Homewood Suites, Columbia, MD

Room Tip: The first time we stayed here our room had a separate small bedroom, smallish sitting area with a sl...

I read great reviews about this hotel but so far I am not at all pleased with the service. Staff at check in was less than friendly. We asked about the shuttle service & were told that is was offered for up to 5 miles, however when we returned to the lobby ~5 min later we were informed that they just ended the service at 9pm. I frequently travel with work and am always pleased with Hilton brands but the service at Homewood leaves much to be desired. My husband was also disappointed with the very slow elevator.

Daer MDgirl2012,

On behalf of the staff and management, I would like to thank you for your recent stay at our property. However, I must apologize for the (unusal) poor service you encounted while here.

It is true that our complimentary shuttle runs within a five mile radius of the hotel, but I am not sure why our service was discontinued at 9:00pm, especially since there was no inclement weather that would hamper driving conditions. I will follow up witht he Front Desk to see who was working at this particular time.

Our elevators were just inspected during the first week in December 2012 and was noted at operating within the normal speed guidlines. We will have our Chief Engineer to follow up on your husband's comment.

Given these two items, I hope that the rest of your stay was satisfactory and if you are in the area again, may you allow us another opportunity to serve you.

Sincerely,
Norman Eaton
General Manager

I stayed here for a wedding party. Our room was so perfect. I work for hotels, and I did not find one thing wrong with the room and the service! The room was clean, and a great size. The staff was friendly, and very helpful. If you are in this area, STAY HERE! It's worth it!

We have held many overnight training programs at this hotel. The hotel is in a great location for our participants who come from all regions of Maryland. The rooms are large and clean. It is very convenient to have two bedrooms with the central living area to give participants privacy, but to also have a common area for socializing after training event. the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast, which is included in the price of the room, is among the best that I have had at any hotel. We use a large meeting space, which is set up for us. Any request is met.

We stayed in a king suite with our 2 kids (age 3 yrs and 2 months) while in town for a soccer tournament. The rate was awesome - less than we usually spend - and the room was very nice. It wasn't quite as big ad I expected, but we managed pretty well. Everything was very clean, the staff was nice, and the location was great - very close to some huge shopping and restaurant options! The only complaint I have is the timing for breakfast - they advertise that the hot breakfast is from 7-10am but both mornings we were there, we had to wait until almost 7:15 for the actual hot items to be available. It's nice to have it be fresh, but not so nice when we needed to he out the door by 7:10 to get to a game! The food itself was great, though. We would definitely consider staying here again!

Hello Ford Family,

It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and especially to give us such a great review on Trip Advisor.

I do apologize for the breakfast being late and sincerly hope it was the only time this has happened. I would hate to think we advertise something that is not true. Unfortunately for you it was late and again I apologize, but I am looking into it to ensure it does not happen again.

Also,we are looking forward to you returning to your home away from home!!

This hotel is in a great location. Many restaurants to chose from that are in walking distance. The rooms are nice and clean with full size mini-kitchens. The hot breakfast that they are offer was very nice. The Hotel staff were also very friendly.

I have high expectations of Homewood Suites and this one fulfilled them all. The ONLY negative I can think of is that the 2 bedroom suite has a pretty small living room. Service was awesome and the room was immaculate. The maid went out of his/her way to ensure there was enough coffee for 3 people. I will stay again!

Room Tip: Got carried away...no real "room service" available, but all else was great!

Dear travelVA98,

Thank you for your recent stay with us and we are happy that it was an enjoyable time for you. Also we wnt to thank you for posting such a positive response on Trip Advisor.
You are correct, our 2 bedroom suites does have a smaller living room area, but this is mostly so that the bedrooms can be a bit larger.

I wlll pass this review to our Housekeeping Manager so he can share with his staff. We all like to hear good news!

Thank you and we hope you come back to our home soon.
