Travel Tuesday: 10 Reasons to Stay at Homewood Suites by Hilton

I can totally understand why Homewood Suites by Hilton’s tagline is “Be at Home”. I had not stayed in one before (I am not sure why that is), but I was so pleasantly surprised and wowed by the amenities, space and comfort of home during my trip to Charleston last week. I found that many travelers, who need an extended stay, choose Homewood Suites. Not only do they offer great value, a tremendous amount of space and fully equipped kitchens, there’s so much more. I thought I would share 10 reasons to choose Homewood Suites for your next travel stay.

1. Incredible spacious studio, one and two bedroom suites. The bathrooms and showers were huge, and the sheets were SO comfortable. I even asked if I could buy some :).

2. Each suite has fully equipped kitchens with microwave, full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, double burner, toaster, coffee maker and place settings and utensils for four people.

3. Complimentary grocery shopping service. How cool is that? I want to move in!

4. Complimentary daily full hot breakfast and evening dinner with drinks every Monday-Thursday. Healthy and gluten-free options are offered as well.

5. Complimentary high speed internet in all suites. There’s also a lodge and meeting rooms if you need some type of meeting or party space or even a spot to do your favorite workout video.

6. Swimming pool, grills and fitness center that is open 24 hours a day.

7. They have a 24-hour service convenience store and complementary laundry.

8. Great work space with a super comfortable desk chair (I wanted one).

9. The most friendly and passionate staff I have seen in a long time.

10. Because, honestly, you will feel just like you are at home.

Blueberry-Pecan Crisp

The blueberries this summer are so sweet and juicy, and I’m thrilled that they aren’t expensive either. The other day, I decided to make a simple Blueberry Crisp from a recipe my friends, Nancy and Lissa, sent me. When I put the photo on Facebook, everyone was begging for the recipe. It’s terrific served on its own or with a scoop of low-fat yogurt or ice cream. Happy July 4th week everyone! Enjoy and be safe!
