Homewood Suites by Hilton is a chain of "residential-style" extended stay properties, with locations in the US, Canada, and Mexico.* At Homewood Suites, all rooms and suites come with kitchens, and the lobby is meant to feel like a living-room with comfy chairs, fireplace, etc.

Homewood Suites properties can be booked for any number of nights, but "extended stay" guests who stay five nights or longer get a price break; the longer the stay, the lower the nightly rate.

Homewood Suites are part of the Hilton HHonors points/miles program (for free hotel stays and free flights) which includes Hilton hotels, Hampton Inns, Doubletree, and more.

Homewood Suites by Hilton as Family Hotels:

The Homewood Suites brand has a number of features that particularly suit a family hotel:

  • rooms and suites can accommodate families of four or more ( to a maximum of six, in suites)
  • all guestrooms have a fullly equipped kitchen (fridge, stove, cooking utensils, etc.)
  • rooms have a living space that's separate from the bed area; one and two-bedroom suites have an entire separate living room.
  • complimentary breakfast includes waffles, eggs, bacon, juices, coffee and more
  • complimentary dinner is offered Monday to Thursday at a Manager's Reception
  • complimentary grocery service can be a convenience for families with babies, and can help families save money by eating-in
  • book series based on "Lewis the Duck" character is available at Homewood Suites properties.*

Another convenience is online room selection, which speeds up the check-in process, and allows families to choose, say, a room close to an elevator, so there's less lugging luggage. Or choose a room with a pool view, to keep tabs on kids old enough to use the pool on their own.
