My wife and I stayed at the Homewood Suites by Hilton in Plainview, NY, in a one bedroom suite with king bed and kitchenette, for four nights, starting Friday, April 27, 2007. We used 90000 Hilton HHonors points for three of the nights and paid $152.10 (AAA discounted rate) for the fourth night ($166.37 including tax). This was a good hotel, but I have to admit that the prices for decent hotels in this part of Long Island were surprisingly (to me, at least) high. The location was very good for our personal purposes, so we went for it, anyway.
This neighborhood is not particularly attractive -- standard suburban business zoned area. There are several restaurant choices within a few minutes’ drive. The nearest Long Island Rail Road station (Hicksville) is about a 20 minute drive away. The hotel is in good condition, modern looking, with a well furnished lobby and eating area (where the included breakfast is available -- rather good food, including a few hot entrees). Amenities were typical for an above average quality hotel in the United States. The staff we encountered during our visit were competent, friendly, and courteous. Computer facilities, including a printer (which needed toner), were available for guests in a room off the lobby.
Our suite was rather large (roughly 18 x 25 feet), had a living room/kitchenette area, a bedroom/bathroom area, a roughly 4 x 3 foot closet with a safe and plenty of hangars, and more than adequate storage spaces. The vanity is outside the separate toilet/shower room, and offered reasonable counter space with a cabinet underneath. The kitchenette included a large microwave, full fridge, utensils, plates, etc., a table and two chairs, sink, and range. A digital thermostat for central air conditioning is in the room. All amenities in the suite were functioning properly during the time of our stay. We heard no sounds from neighboring suites and almost no street noise.
