Kudos to the team at Homewood Suites. While I am still staying here and won't leave for the next few days I felt compelled to comment on the very pleasant and helpful staff of the Homewood Suites/Hampton Inn at Silver Springs.
Hotel Manager Michael Harold sets a fine example for the staff as he meets and greets people with a professionalism and friendliness that makes one feel like - yes, I'm home! Lyndra, while not the most effusive of persons, greeted and helped my family and I with a quiet deliberate professionalism. (I would like to see her smile more though :). While I stayed in a Homewood Suites room, my dad and his wife were in a Hampton Inn room, and the entire team made the experience at the hotel seamless. Mark on the Hampton Inn side was also very pleasant and helpful.
The Homewood suites are as befitting a Homewood. The premium rooms are clean and come with full sized refrigerator, microwave and stovetop range. The sofa bed is NOT comfortable at all. That is the one downside. The breakfast is relatively varied and tasty enough although not particularly special - I agree with one reviewer that there doesn't seem to be a significant difference between the Hampton Inn and the Homewood Suites breakfast fare. What was served at one breakfast area one day seemed to have been replicated part at the other the next day.
The hotel is nicely located - a short walk away is downtown Silver Spring with movies and lots of fine restaurants and attractions. The City Place Mall is across the road. The Metro is a short 10 min walk away and the hotel shuttle ( shared between Hampton Inn, Homewood Suites and the Doubletree across the road) will also drop you there. From the Metro you can access most of the rest of DC including DCA.
Great location, great staff, comfortable rooms. What more could one expect?
