“unexpectedly modern yet homey”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

last minute booking brought us to the Homewood suites, was shocked at the modern decor and while we had planned to visit the Steakhouse in the adjoining hotel, we were enticed to enjoy the Complimentary beer/wine and FULL DINNER...pour and feed yourself! What delicious deal!

I stay here once a month for work. The reason I stay here is because the location is good and the room size is above average. I like that there is a kitchen in the room so I can make breakfast in the morning. It's fairly clean but not luxurious. The front desk staff are most often very friendly and accommodating. On the downside, they charge for parking ($5) which is down the street in an open lot which is not so secure. If you want to workout, you have to walk next door to the HIlton Hotel which is not ideal. I think if you are traveling with family (lots of kids) this is a good place to stay. So on balance, I'd could recommend this hotel if you need to be in this location and want a larger than average room but if you want finer quality digs, check out other hotels in the city.

We stayed at this hotel with our two grandsons. Having two bedrooms and two bathrooms helped with getting out in the morning. The staff was always friendly and helpful.

The breakfasts had a variety of foods. The one shortcoming was waiting to use the waffle iron. A second would move the line quicker - good when you're trying to feed children.
The dinners were usually good, although one night they ran out of chicken just as we were getting ready to eat.

It was nice not to have to go out for dinner after shepherding two kids around Philly all day.

One shortcoming was the lack of a table next to the sofa and stuffed chair to set down a drink or coffee. There was a coffee table by the sofa, but every time you wanted a sip, you had to stop reading to lean forward to pick up your drink and set it back down. A small item perhaps, but it became more noticeable after a few days.

I stay at this hotel everytime I come to the Philadelphia, PA area. Great value for your money. Friendly staff... excellent breakfast and dinner... and wine and beer in the evenings are included with the price of the hotel. Big bang for your buck!

Always loved Philly and now our son is at Temple U so we are visiting more often. Nice to have a room that is like home where we can all hang out and save money on meals. Have used Homewood in the past in several locations and never disappointed. Lovely and clean accommodations, friendly helpful staff.

I have booked this hotel based on the past experience in Aug'13 which was awesome but in Jan'14 to Feb'14, i found the quality of services has been decreased a lot which management need to look upon. I liked the way we have treated by reception people (Robert and Tony) as both of them are awesome in people interection.

Stayed a couple of weeks in February. Good breakfast, reasonable dinner offering. I often would grab a salad to add to a dinner I had as take out. Front desk staff is friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. I had two different floor plans for the two different weeks I stayed. I liked one better than another, but dont know how one might choose that in advance. Be sure to ask for a view of a direction, such as south facing. I would stay here again.
