Reasons 1-100: True Extended Value for Business Travel or Family Vacations
Whether traveling for business, leisure, or with the entire family, Homewood Suites caters to guests' many needs. For the cost of a typical hotel room, travelers get a roomy studio, one- or two-bedroom suite with full kitchen and complimentary daily hot breakfast and evening dinner with drinks. Homewood Suites' extended value also includes complimentary high-speed internet, 24-hour fully equipped business center and a host of features that make it easy to incorporate last minute changes to your travel itinerary, checking in with the office or catching up online with the family. Flexible meeting space is also available at most locations.
Plus, Homewood guests enjoy onsite fitness centers, swimming pool and/or recreational areas including basketball courts, putting green, outdoor grills, as well as free shuttles to local destinations. The brand's innovative Suite Selection program gives guests the flexibility to choose the exact location of their suite prior to check-in.
Great locations near major attractions, colleges and universities, business parks, and residential areas, add to Homewood Suites' convenience. Affordable rates and competitive seasonal offerings, like this fall's Macy's Promotion complete the package.
Reasons 100-175: Free Yummy Eats!
Whether getting a jump on the morning or coming back after a full day, there's nothing like something good to eat. Just last year, Homewood Suites expanded its menus to provide a wider selection and new healthier options as part of its complimentary hot full breakfast and evening dinner and drinks programs.
Homewood's full hot breakfast goes way beyond continental. Every guest enjoys a freshly made spread including signature dishes like warm Italian Countryside Farmhouse Frittatas and Orchard Eye Opener Cheese Omelets. For dinner, Homewood provides a wide array of healthy, yet savory items like Sizzlin' Santa Fe Salad with southwestern fajita beef and Wild West Shrimp and Wild Wok Asian salads; it's got something for everyone. Most locations also offer complimentary beer and wine.
Other Homewood guests prefer to take advantage of the in-suite fully equipped kitchens - including a full-sized refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, pots/pans, and place settings for four – to create their own entrees or to heat up a quick meal from the 24-hour on-site Suite Shop. Homewood also offers a complimentary grocery shopping service* which allows guests to leave their food wish list for the hotel's staff in the morning and return to a fully-stocked refrigerator.
