We stayed in a 2-bedroom, 2-bath suite on a AAA-room rate during Spring Break. This hotel is not far from the University of Delaware campus and from downtown Newark, DE which has many eateries/stores thanks to the college students in the area. It's a little further from the main tourist attractions in the Wilmington-area, but my family decided the larger room size (we have a family of five with three teens) and indoor pool was a worthy tradeoff. Hotel was not as "busy" as the larger chains during our stay, which we definitely preferred.
Room was very well appointed and clean. (Hi-Def) LCD TVs in every room, 1 King Bed, 2 Queens, small kitchen, living room.
The hotel recently upgraded the gym to include a few Precor exercise machines, as well as free weights.
The pool was very clean and very clear. The pool employee was obsessed with keeping the water in very good condition for hotel guests (that's a GOOD THING).
The weekday evening manager's reception was enough to have for dinner and was among the best we have had at any Homewood Suites we have stayed at. Beer and wine (2-drink limit) were included.
The daily breakfast was a good assortment of hot and cold items and had enough that everyone found something to like.
The employees tending the evening reception and breakfast area really tried to make you happy (I thought a nice gesture in return was leaving a gratuity at each meal).
Overall, highly recommend this hotel. Definitely a very good hotel value.
