We are so glad you enjoyed your stay during the hotter weather this season! We are in a good location with many amenties to offer during this time. We hope you were able to enjoy our jazz band we had playing on our lakeside landing Friday and Saturday as well as our indoor swimming pool or sundeck area. We were able to notice your tip of staying on a side other then the west side due to late evening sun warming the suite, we do have lake view suites avaiable on the North side of the hotel as well! We look forward to seeing you during your next trip to Wichita!

We had come from a previous Homewood Suites, and was on our way to Wichita to visit family. So I called Homewood suites and they got us right in, she mentioned that there would be a wedding Saturday night. I was ok with it since we would be with family that night. I also advised them we would arrive late since we were coming from Chicago. She said no problem. Once we arrived they had everything ready for us, wish I could have gotten his name but he knew my name right when we arrived and had room key in hand in about 2 minutes. Now that is some great service! Beautiful rooms! Such great people working there, the breakfast is amazing and the staff is even better. Thank you for making our stay very enjoyable. We would definately stay again the next time we are in Wichita. :)

We stayed three days and it was wonderful. The rooms are well appointed and spotless clean as were the common areas. The bed was super comfy with soft sheets. The breakfast each day was delicous with much to choose from. There were many restaurants very close by and you were just minutes from anywhere you wanted to go in Wichita. As if the great hotel was not enough...the staff was over the top. They were gracious, helpful and well informed about the area. Not sure why this is not the #1 pick, it definately should be!!!!!

Room Tip: Get the lakeview side if you can...pretty view out your window!

I like to stay Hilton or Homewood Suites whenever possible, but this one was in a class of it's own. The manager offered us bottled water upon arrival ( a beautiful custom Homewood Suites Waterfront bottle). The hotel has a country club feel, early American decor and beautiful grounds. There was a wedding going on at our arrival time, but we were prepared by the staff as to how to negotiate.

We were visiting Wichita to scout out apartments for my daughter who will attend WSU this fall. The location is great, close to restaurants and shopping and easy to get to. Having a fullly appointed kitchen was ideal, and we received a nice welcome gift of cookies and more bottled water.

Finally, my rate was was very reasonable, as we were able to get an AAA rate. I just wish we could have stayed longer

Room Tip: Rooms facing patio have water view

Stayed there twice, both times very good experience.
the staff is helpful and nice, the roomsa are superb, the free shuttle service (in the 5mi range) extremely convenient.
the location si good as you stay at the waterfront, where several restaurants are located so you can easily eat out without taking a car.
the only thing that probably does not live up to the rest is the breakfast which is just OK.
they also do serve dinner (a fixed menu I guess) but I never tried it.
Will choose it again and would definitely recommend it.

I stayed here for business, and new it was going to be a trip with much driving. So I stayed here knowing it was the most expensive Hilton property in the area, hoping that equated to nicest and most restful. And for the most part, this was the case. It's a beautiful new property. Lots of great amenities and features. A basketball court out back, a nice pond with walkway. Exercise room is large and well appointed. Breakfast was very good, as were the evening meals.

But the atmosphere was a little more "party central" than I cared for in the evenings. I just wanted to relax, have a quiet drink and some food, before retiring for the evening. If I was there on vacation, with family, I'm sure I would feel differently.

Overall, a very nice place to stay in Wichita, with quick access to most major routes. But maybe not the best value for a business traveler.

Room Tip: The views out of the back of the hotel over the lake/pond are much nicer than the front/sides/parkin...

I only wish I had discovered this hotel earlier, as Wichita is always our overnight stopover on the way back home to the Dakotas from the Austin/San Antonio Texas area. Over the years we've tried many Wichita hotels, and this one is in a class by itself. It is the cleanest, best furnished and maintained hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere, and this includes New York City, Chicago, London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris, Munich and several cities in Africa, in all cases regardless of price. You can set up housekeeping in the galley kitchen of your suite and the management will even grocery shop for you, a super convenience if you are staying for a weekend or longer. The free hot breakfast and supper with complementary beer and wine is just the frosting on the cake. The only slight drawback is that the hotel is a little hard to find on your first visit, as it is in the middle of a large office park. It is called "at The Waterfront" because it is on a lovely little pond with a .6 mile sidewalk around it--a great relaxing walk after supper. The hotel is pet friendly and kids under eighteen stay in your room for free. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel.
