This is such a great hotel. The rooms are wonderful, with a full kitchen and separate living area. You get breakfast every day (and I'm not talking "continental breakfast"...there are always eggs and some sort of meat, along with a waffle station and the normal toast, bagels, cereal, etc). You also get dinner Monday through Thursday...a real dinner, not just snacks, plus wine, beer, lemonade, etc.
This is the only hotel my husband stays at when he travels on business to San Diego, and I often am able to accompany him. The staff at this hotel is like family...they know us by name, they know our room preferences, and they do everything to make us feel at home. But the nice thing is, they do that for EVERYONE, not just the frequent travelers. I watched one of the kitchen staff assisting a lady one morning at breakfast; the woman was overwhelmed with a toddler and newborn, and the girl from the kitchen actually made waffles for the woman, put plates together for her and the toddler, and made sure they all had something to drink and made it to a table with their food. Now THAT is customer service.
The staff goes out of their way to make sure that everyone's experience is a positive one. My husband had to set up an impromptu meeting over dinner with several of his co-workers, and the folks at the hotel just did an amazing job of setting up a room for him and making sure everyone had enough food and drinks...even though they had less than 24 hours' notice of the meeting. It just seems as if "no" is not in their vocabulary.
I hate to write such a glowing report, because the more people who know about this gem of a hotel, the more crowded it will get and the harder it will be to get reservations there. But the folks at the hotel deserve all the credit they can get...they truly make the Homewood Suites a home away from home.
