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things like...the foot towel on the bathtub was soaking wet...the bed was made improperly, list of TV channels was outdated, elevator is old, all scuffed up and covered in dings...I felt like I'm at Holiday Inn, this Homewodd Suites is no comparison to the nice ones I stayed a lot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!

Wonderful stay!

My husband and I have stayed at many hotels throughout the years, however, this one was exceptional! From the moment we checked in the staff was there to make our stay a memorable one. Robert, the manager, could not have been kinder. The entire staff went beyond what most other hotels offer. The breakfast was very good and the presentation was beautiful. The mini dinner that was offered Monday thru Thursday was unbelievable. It was a like a full dinner and delicious. We most definitely will return to the Homewood Suites. The entire staff worked like a family unit, which was nice to see. Thanks guys for everything!

Emphasis on "Home"

From the moment of arrival the front desk ataff made me feel like I was arriving home. Everyone on staff smiles, has a pleasant word and is always ready to help. The breakfast daily and light dinners Monday-Thursday are delicious and attended by an incredibly hospitable staff. The rooms are very clean, spacious and have fully equipped kitchens. There is even a ceiling fan in the bedroom nook that provides great comfort. The hotel is within walking distance of numerous restaurants and a shopping mall. I have been there at least a half dozen times and every stay has been consistently excellent!
