Homewood Suites by Hilton Austin-Arboretum/NW Hotel Review: This Texas-style apartment hotel is decorated in Lone Star State style, beginning in the lobby. From there, just about everything that a business, family or long-term traveler could need is provided. The “office away from home” environment of Homewood Suites offers a business center with fax, printing and copy services, meeting rooms and audio/visual equipment rental. Each apartment-style suite has a spacious work desk, along with the comforts of home including a full kitchen, separate living room, sleeper sofa, TV with cable and included Wi-Fi access. The staff will even do your grocery shopping for you --- a complimentary service. There’s also a 24-hour convenience store on-site, and a full, hot breakfast is included daily. Family items are available such as cribs, high chairs and playpens. Guests can keep fit with the fully equipped gym, basketball court and swimming pool. Receptions with drinks and dinner are held during the week, and pets are allowed up to 30 pounds with a non-refundable deposit. The surrounding Arboretum area provides plenty of restaurants and shopping within a short distance, and easy access to both downtown and North Austin.
