A Review: Homestead Suites

We are staying at Homestead Studio Suites at 9701 N. Shannon Avenue in Kansas City.  65 degrees in Kansas City today.  Rain predicted, the sun shined the whole way here from Des Moines.

I chose this hotel because we stayed at a Homestead Studio Suites near Chattanooga a couple of years ago and loved it.  

We were graciously met by the front desk clerk, who happens to be the Hotel Manager Pamela J. Newman.  She checked the four of us into three rooms.  Our room has a sofa bed, a queen size bed, a stove top, full size refrigerator, and a desk area!  It’s also very clean, there’s a light breeze coming through the window – and I’m happy.
It’s amazing what a little warm weather, a nice room and a happy husband will do for you! 
Oh – and there’s a bulletin board!  I can put up my ideas, projects and inspirational pictures.  The bedspread – light tan with dragonflys on it.  None of that 80’s purple and red geo design.  The entrance door to the room is on an inside hall.  There is also wifi and an exercise room.  
Recommendation?  You betcha!  I’ll be eating barbeque at Smokin Joes tomorrow — stay tuned!

    The rapid infrastructural, cultural and economic development in the south Indian city of Hyderabad have augured the emergence of many other related industries and have triggered vigorous development in the such sectors as the hospitality sector. Hyderabad is also a major IT hub and this only proves to be a catalyst in bringing about development in the Hyderabad hotels. Flourishing business have paved the way to the opening of a number of world class business and budget hotels in Hydrabad. Growing business have also led to the growth of quite a many A-grade townships wherein also the hospitality industry is showing interest. As for example, Hospitality giants Hyatt, is all geared up to open two properties in Hyderabad. The first one, due to open in early 2010 is called Park Hyatt Hyderabad. The affiliates of Global Hyatt Corporation and Lanco Hills Technology Park Private Limited, which is a part of Lanco group have announced the signing of a definitive management agreement to open the second hotel in Hyderabad by 2011. The hotel will be named the Grand Hyatt Hyderabad. The hotel will be consisting 400 rooms and will be situated in the upcoming 100 acre township called Lanco hills in Manikonda, two miles from Gachibowli and HITEC city.

    Hyderabad is in India, for those of you who don’t know. Homestead Suites is also owned by Hilton – and I think that is how the above comment made its way to my blog.

    I like to think that a lot of business from America is helping to contribute to the rapid growth of the IT sector in India. I find it prudent not to share my opinion in this comment about American companies sending jobs overseas in order to save money. You can take a good guess where I stand on the matter – being a shopping local fanatic!

    Good luck to the Hyderabad hotel by Hyatt. Thanks for commenting.
