Homewood Suites Silver Spring
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Silver Spring
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This hotel is a good value. It's a longer walk to the Metro with luggage, but it's still fairly close. Lots of great restaurants and shopping steps away from the hotel. I would stay here again. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

When I first checked into the hotel I unpacked my clothes and cranked the AC to take a nap after a long trip on the plane and Metro. However as I lied there I noticed it wasn't getting any cooler than 74 degrees even after being there for an hour. Calling the front desk they sent a maintenance man and eventually got me a new room.

In my haste I forgot to grab a belt I left in the room. I called down and asked that they retrieve it for me since I no longer had a key to the room. They said they could not find the belt anywhere despite me telling them exactly where I had left it. Who in gods name steals a belt?!

The breakfast on the homewood side is honestly no better than the breakfast on the free hampton inn side. When I went to the hampton side to visit a friend the breakfast was essentially the same minus the ceramic plates on the homewood side. So if you want to save money by staying on the hampton side and usually stay on the homewood side because of breakfast do not bother.

The room quality once I got the correct room was great...however the incident with my missing belt and sub par breakfast left a bad taste in my mouth...no pun intended.

The regular bed and room was comfortable. The hide-a-bed was awful, but one of my sons was able to sleep on the couch, and we had brought a cot for the other one (the roll-aways didn't look much better than the hide-a-way.

That was the worst of the negatives. We were impressed with the weeknight meals -- nothing fancy, but not chicken nuggets & fries, either. One night was stuffed peppers, another was beef stroganoff. Breakfast was also a good mix of omelettes, cooked oatmeal or grits, and scrambled eggs.

The metro is a few blocks off, so it was easy to reach --- we didn't get back in the van for the whole week.

Pool was nice and hot tub was wonderful (and truly hot!) after a day of hoofing it around DC. Hours are a bit short - 4 to 10 pm - but it's also life-guarded, so that's a bonus. Exercise room was very nice, clean, with working equipment and full set of weights and other exercise equipment.

Laundry was pretty standard --- two front-loading washers and two dryers, coin-operated.

We were near the elevators and the ice machine, but never noticed either, so rooms were very quiet.

Silver Springs was a delightful surprise --- we picked this hotel because of the amenities, price, and proximity to DC. But Silver Springs itself has a great variety of restaurants (we tried Pot Bellies (a hit with the younger set), a Vietnamese place, and a place that specializes in rotisserie chicken -- we enjoyed all of them). The town was bustling in a happy kind of way --- kids playing in the fountain, people going for ice cream (yogurt shop, Ben & Jerry's, Coldstone Creamery), Whole Foods, street musicians. We happened on a blues festival Saturday night, but every night seemed like there was something going on.

A splendid Welcome awaits guests. The Metro Station to downtown DC is minutes away. Entire staff is very professional. Breakfast was fast and wholesome. Add room cost (versus a Downtown Hotel)into the "equation" and it the Value of staying here is off the Charts.

We stayed at the Homewood Suites during our family weeklong trip to Washington DC. It was a perfect place to stay after long days touring the city. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts and suppers and the private dining room. I would recommend Silver Springs as a place to stay close to the Metro but far enough to be away from the crowds

For Silver Springs stays, this hotel beats them all. The all suites is great. Breakfast is complimentary and excellent. the rooms are ultra quiet and that is very important to me. They honored my requests on being on a high floor, away from elevator and ice machines. They allowed a 2 hour late checkout. The staff were very helpful.

Stayed here on my most recent business trip, and had no complaints. Rooms were large and clean, hotel was quiet, and staff was friendly. Was glad to see they offered free internet, though it would be nice if they would just offer the premium service to all; especially to companies / agencies that do a lot of business with the hotel. Would definitely stay here agian.
