I stayed at Home2 for three nights during TSU’s centennial homecoming in 2012 (September). I am a Hilton Honors member and frequently stay in nicer hotels. I booked the room directly through the Hilton site and got what I considered a very competitive rate especially considering that during TSU homecoming there is usually a substantial hike in hotel prices around town. The rate I received was approx.. $150 a night. I stayed with one of my girlfriends and we got a King bed with a pullout sofa. The bed was amazing and the couch bed was average. It was fine though, I didn’t wake with any aches or pains, but neither would I brag about it. That’s is usually how couch beds go, however.
There is a kitchenette in the troom which would have been great had I been with my family, but this was a girls weekend so we ate out every meal besides breakfast. The bathroom was nice and normal for what I’ve come to expect from Hilton. Nice counters, spacious tub/shower. Very clean.
The breakfast was normal for a breakfast-included hotel. There were lots of options, breads, eggs, meats, waffles, yogurt, juices. It was easy to find healthy choices and not so healthy choices so we were both pleased. The attendtants were hard at work refilling stations so nothing was empty for long. It was also kept meticulously clean.
Service in the hotel was great. I can imagine that they were booked solid, but I had no trouble whatsoever getting attention when needed from the staff. There is also security at night since you have to swipe your card to get it the door. Great since we were without our husbands this trip.
The parking left a little to be desired since there is no access directly back into the hotel but you have to walk past the garage entry gate to get out. This is the middle of the city though so I can’t expect it to be like a suburban hotel I suppose. Something to keep in mind however when travelling alone. It didn’t seem unsafe but the way to keep safe is to be aware at all times.
All in all, I enjoyed my stay and found this a remarkable deal for the money spent and the weekend I stayed. Service was top notch and this new hotel brand of Hilton’s is not a miss.
