Set apart from the busy Philadelphia center among quiet lawns, patios and flowerbeds, the Homewood Suites Hotel does the 'home away from home' thing very well. Cook your own cuisine in-room, grill outside with the barbecue and picnic area in the courtyard, or float on your back in the warm indoor pool. Shuttles will transport you anywhere within a five-mile radius of the hotel steps, and evening food and drink arrives compliments of the house during the week.

Key facts

  • Fully-equipped kitchen in rooms
  • Separate sleeping and living areas
  • Free high-speed Internet throughout hotel
  • Local area transportation
  • Laundry/Valet service
  • Workout room and swimming pool
  • Complimentary full hot breakfast
  • Free dinner and drinks Monday-Thursday
  • Courtyard with grills and picnic tables
  • Pets allowed (hotel policy and fees may apply)
  • Business center with free printing

Neighborhood

The Homewood Suites Hotel Philadelphia is about 25 miles from Center City, Philadelphia, and about the same distance from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). The peaceful Great Valley-Malvern area is first-rate for anyone attending events at the Oaks Expo Center or academic conferences at Immaculata or Penn State Universities. Walk to Valley Creek Park for a blast of fresh air amongst the trees, with tennis courts and hiking trails in abundance.

Hints and tips

Don't miss the chance to make your own fresh waffles at breakfast.
If you need to stock up your suite for the weekend, there's a small mall called Great Valley Center a short drive away, home to local grocery stores, takeout joints and drugstores.

Great Stay

We stayed at the Homewood Suites- City Ave this past weekend, and would definitely return. The rooms are huge and comfortable with a king size bed, living area, small kitchen, and bathroom. Friendly and helpful staff that were very accommodating and happily gave us late check out. We ate at the steakhouse in the attached Hilton which was very convenient, the restaurant was nice and the food was good but a little over priced. The only two things I would change is that you do have to pay for parking in a lot a little ways down the street but its only $5.00 and it is very close to the hotel (we could see our cars from the room). And the proximity to Center City is about a 20 minute drive with traffic. But if you plan to go out in the Manayunk/Mainline area and also in the city, as we did, this hotel is in a very convenient spot. Would definitely recommend and return!

Our first and last stay

We were quit surprised that for what we paid for our room, room service was not offered, there were no vending machines on the floors and the "free" breakfast was not that great. The rooms were nice but they should be for what we paid. Overall, I would not stay there again.

supreme comfort

We had just spent two days at a different hotel for approximately the same price and it had no microwave or refrigerator. The beds were not nearly as comfoftable. This place was a wonderful change. We will look for Homewood Suites whenever we travel from now on!! Beautifully appointed rooms!

a bit pricey but a pleasant stay

I would have liked to have found something cheaper but this seems to be a pricey neighborhood and I wasn't quite willing to go for the 2 star option. Everything in the hotel was nice (although a hot tub in addition to the pool would have sweetened the deal a bit more). Outside is not all that pretty and while it's just across the river, its a bit too far to walk to the Manayunk neighborhood where there are lots of nice restaurants.

Not your ordinary quality of Homewood Suites

arrived at 11pm, lady at front desk met us with the dullest look there can possibly be. No smile, no greetings. I know it's late and I looked no better, but then, that's why I do not work night shifts. Room was clean, carpet new, no smell of smoking, quiet...I was happy about that...but there were little things like...the foot towel on the bathtub was soaking wet...the bed was made improperly, list of TV channels was outdated, elevator is old, all scuffed up and covered in dings...I felt like I'm at Holiday Inn, this Homewodd Suites is no comparison to the nice ones I stayed a lot at in California. Next morning though there were different people at the fron desk, and they were wonderful! big smile, standard phrases such as "Good morning, sir!" all made me happy. Breakfasts were fine, with exception of scrambled eggs with pieces of beef in it, I've never seen it before, and my indian girlfriend didn't appreciate it...tasted very bland too... but free food, good enough:) When checking out, there was nobody at the front desk for 10-15 min...maybe the lady stepped out to the bathroom, I understand, but that's why other hotels have 2 people at the front desk. Overall, if I had a choice for that price, I'd definitely try another hotel.

Poor Experience

The hotel only had 1 working elevator. There was not a separate elevator for the cleaning staff. The waits were long and the elevators crowded. The only other elevator was broken for a week, we were told. We had bikes which we had planned to store in our room. With 1 elevator, this was quite difficult. We asked if they could find a place to possibly store the bike. They didn't even try or appologize. We ended up going next store to the Hilton, and, they were more than happy to accomodate us. The Homewood staff didn't even suggest that or try. Our rooms were never cleaned the first day that we were there. When we returned to our room at 3:30 to change for the evening, they wanted to "make up the room". We asked if they could wait. Their reply--we leave at 4:00. So--our room did not get cleaned that day. The bathrooms have no ventilation. And, the TV did not work. Overall--I would not recommend the hotel.

Wonderful Hotel

Stayed for 2 weeks on business. I travel ~ 120 nights per year. This is easily my favorite hotel. Facilities are first-class. Staff is outstanding and make me feel welcome every time I'm there!
