Convenient location makes great stay

Hotel had an excellent location.Easy access to shopping and trains. The breakfasts were excellent-great idea! We basically saw all the the top ten attractions and more ( a free music concert) and did all of it on foot. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Exceptional Service

We came to the city for a birthday weekend trip and had a great time. The stay at Homewood made it that much more enjoyable because they responded to our every need quickly and with excellent service. The room was clean and the kitchen and bathroom were great! The linens seemed a little dated but that would be my only complaint. The staff was 5 stars.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the double-decker trolley tour and for sure buy a one-week transit pass good for all buses, trains, subways, etc.
