Verified Reviews of Homewood Suites by Hilton University City

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Excellent all around"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
This hotel went above and beyond expectations on every level. We booked 30+ rooms for a wedding in the area and each and every guest had nothing but a positive experience. The rooms were unusually large and well maintained, the customer service was par none, even the valet and baggage employees were more friendly and kind than we have ever experienced. Overall great experience! We highly recommend this hotel for any occasion.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"During my search for a hotel in Cape Cod, my hair started going grey very quickly. Each time I found a hotel, either the prices were through the roof or the hotel was a complete dump. I accidentally called you when I thought I was calling a hotel in the Cape Cod area. It was the best mistake I could have ever made! You took down all the details and specifications that I needed and THE VERY NEXT DAY I had a list of hotels that met my requirements." A.C. - Cape Cod, MA
