A few weeks ago, my husband I and our two oldest kids traveled to York PA for my son to swim at the District Swim Meet for the the Greater Scranton YMCA 50 Yard relay team. Since the fall we have been spending our nights poolside at the YMCA, as our two older kids were part of the swim team and had opposite practice schedules. My son swam in the 10-11 year olds team and my daughter swam in the 8-9 year old team (two of my other girls took swim lessons so that put them in the pool once a week as well!). My kids have been talking swim lessons for years so it has been fun to see them transition into being “swimmers” and we have really loved participating in the swim team. My son, along with three of his teammates and friends, qualified for swim districts this year for the 50 Yard relay so we got to travel to York to participate.
Because he had to be in the pool for warmups by 8 am on Sunday morning we decided to travel down the night before and stay at a hotel in the area. My husband is a Hilton Rewards member so he made our reservations online at the Homewood Suites in York Pa. I always get nervous when making reservations online because you really just never know what you are getting but I was thrilled with the quality of our room. My worries were for nothing, however! I was thrilled with the room and with Homewood Suites in general. Our room was extraordinarily clean, spacious and very comfortable. Because it was a suite there was a small, full kitchen with table, a living room with a pullout bed and a separate bedroom with a king sized bed and a well appointed bathroom.
In the morning there was a full breakfast included and I was very impressed with that as well. It had a variety of breakfast foods to chose from, such as eggs, pancakes, sausage, cereals, bagels, yogurts and juices. It worked out great because everyone was able to grab what they wanted and there was no wait.
I would highly recommend the Homewood Suites in York and I will personally be looking for other Homewood Suites the next time we travel. It really is a great home away from home!
