Homewood Suites by Hilton is an American chain of all-suite residential-style hotels managed by the Hilton Worldwide. As of December 31, 2018, the chain consists of 482 hotels in the United States, Canada, and Mexico with 54,836 rooms. 460 Homewood Suites hotels are independently owned and operated by franchisees with 52,462 rooms, while 22 hotels are managed with 2,374 rooms.
The first Homewood Suites was founded in Omaha, Nebraska in 1989. For the next ten years, the hotel chain was owned by Memphis-based Promus Hotel Corporation, which also owned Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn and Doubletree. Hilton purchased Promus in 1999 for $3.1 billion, making Homewood Suites a Hilton brand alongside the other three Promus chains. In 2000, Homewood Suites changed its name to Homewood Suites by Hilton, reflecting the change of ownership that went into effect the year before.
Homewood Suites provides a free hot breakfast every morning, and hosts a free Evening Social reception Monday-Thursday, consisting of draft beers, house wine, soft drinks and light food options.
Homewood Suites was named “Top Extended-Stay Hotel” in the 2010 J.D. Power & Associates North America Hotel Guest Satisfaction Index and “2011 Extended-stay Hotel Brand of the Year” by Harris Interactive.
In 2010, Homewood Suites began a partnership with Books for Kids, a New York City based children’s literacy advocacy group. The two organizations opened a library in July 2010 in Memphis, Tennessee.
