“Awesome”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

I stayed at Homewood Suites while on a business trip to Philadelphia. Each time I arrived in the evening I was greeted with a friendly and enthusiastic "Welcome Home" from the front desk. Every employee I encountered during my stay was absolutely wonderful from the manager to the desk clerks to the hostesses. All facilities were clean and comfortable. My suite was clean, roomy and well equiped. The breakfast and manager's receptions were fantastic. Food and drinks were good and plentiful. I have nothing but praise for this establishment. The fitness facility and pool are in the adjacent hotel, but I did not even have to go outside to get to them and they were never crowded. They were also clean and well equiped. Overall two thumbs up for the Homewood Suites and their staff.

Homewood Suites is one of the best places that I've stayed. The first time I went in 2007 was so incredible, I have made it my hotel of choice everytime I go. The service from check in to check out was very courteous. Food and drinks are very good....

There was a person at the front desk on the night of September 23rd and September 24th i think her name was Vanessa. She was awesome and a great asset to your or organization. She made my stay away from home not seem so bad. I wish there were employees like Vanessa elsewhere when i travel. It's good to know that there are still people who care about there job and the job that they do. To add this review i would also like to state that everybody that i came in contact with at this hotel was also very helpful and professional i will be recommending this hotel to all my co-workers when they would stay in the Philadelphia area:) I apologize if i got the name wrong of the employee but that name sticks out for some reason if it's not please pass along a thank you to the person that was there those nights i was there. I do remember i had a terrible headache one of those nights and her personality help tremendously :)

In spite of the "Average" overall rating I'm giving this property, there was much that was good. The staff and the room itself were quite good. Mostly I was relieved that it's a completely different property than the horribly rated Hilton Hotel that's adjacent to it. The emphasis here is on the SUITES part.

The room is spacious and designed efficiently. There's a lounging area with a love seat/sofa and a chair, a small dining table, a tiny kitchen with a full refrigerator, a decent sized bathroom, good bed, and a desk to work at. You could live here for a week and not feel like you're too cramped. Climate controls worked fine, and the room was fairly quiet with double glazed windows. All entirely acceptable. The complementary dinner and breakfast were reasonably good and healthy. The staff was always friendly and accommodating.

For those doing business in the area, this is a fine place to stay. Hopefully, you've got a car to get other places (even if parking costs $5 per night). Otherwise, it's a bit remote. This isn't where you want to stay if you're interested in the downtown area...unless you want to drive. Very little is a convenient walk away.

The rooms have flat panel TVs, but all the stations seemed to be analog signals and stretched, rather than 16X9 digital signals. Considering that this is a few blocks from two network televisions stations (who use it for guests), that's just not acceptable.

The dining area for the complementary cuisine could use a good carpet cleaning. I'm sure it's tough keeping it all clean, given the purpose of the space, but either replace the floor with something that doesn't hold the food or shampoo the carpet more frequently. Don't get me wrong here. The room and facility is fairly clean in general. This was just something I noticed.

There's not much more to even comment on. Any other facilities are just what's available if you go over to the adjacent (poorly rated) Hilton Hotel. I never checked out anything that was over there. This place is fine for what it is.

The room was typical for "suite" style hotels. Small living area and kitchen, bedroom with desk/work area and reasonable sized bath with essentials included. Towels and sheets were good quality and seemed almost new. Flat screen TV which swiveled on a counter in between the living area and bedroom. Toni at the front desk and all the staff were very courteous and helpful. The hotel is connected to the Hilton next door and can be accessed without going outside. While there is no restaurant in the hotel there are two in the Hilton and others close by. The only negative was parking which was about a block down the street in a public lot. The hotel will stamp the back of your parking ticket to allow you in and out privileges. There was also a hot breakfast included but cannot comment on that as it runs 6:30 to 9:30 even on weekends. Was out at a wedding to the wee hours and never got up in time.

Room Tip: The connection to the Hilton is on the second floor. If you want peace and quiet stay above that le...

The hotel is located in a nice outskirt area of the city with a lot of things to do in the surroundings.
Our room was very spacious and well equipped. It was calm by night.
Breakfast is o.k. but no sensation.
You may be lucky to find a streetside place to park. Else there is a large parking lot for 5$ a day across the street.
The staff was amazingly friendly. From a very warm welcome at check-in to a friendly service at breakfast staff did everything to make our stay a pleasant one.
