I didn’t hesitate to stay at Homewood Suites – Mayfaire on my last Wilmington Coast getaway. It was an easy decision to make because it’s convenient to Wrightsville Beach along with the Mayfaire Town Center. I can appreciate the amenities that Homewood Suites offers because I love to feel like I’m home away from home with access to studio living. You can reserve a one or two-bedroom suite with separate living area and bedroom(s). There’s a fully equipped kitchen along with work area and complimentary WiFi.
I really enjoyed just relaxing in bed and watching the flat screen television. I have a few tech devices that need charging and really liked the electric outlets with USB ports. I was able to charge multiple electronics at the same time and it was great! I can’t afford to be on 7% when I need a full battery so I can stay connected via social media to livestream, Tweet and Instagram Story what’s going on in REAL time.
The Homewood Suites really rolled out the red carpet for me and it was perfect! I was their “special guest” of the day which was a cool surprise upon check-in. I got a cute welcome bag and was greeted immediately with the best guest services. The lounge area and dining area look really inviting and you just want to sit down and enjoy a drink from the full-service lobby bar. There is a weekly scheduled evening social offered Monday through Thursday.
You also get a nice and hot complimentary breakfast each morning. My favorite area is lounging around the resort style heated outdoor pool. In the evening, you can sit by the fire pit and enjoy the night air. You also have access to the hot tub if you want to soak. I’m glad there is a fitness center on the premises for when you have the urge to workout. This was a quick escape for me so I didn’t have working out on my agenda.
I was able to take care of all business from my suite but, there is a business center for your convenience and it’s available around the clock! I really like that because I work remotely and need to be able to conduct business wherever I go. I also travel with my family a majority of the time and I homeschool my youngest son. I like knowing I have options when it comes to my business and son’s education. Homewood Suites gives you all the essentials you need while staying there.
I like to go grocery shopping and have stuff available to us in the suite. We do tend to dine out when we are on vacation and staycations but, we also love to snack and drink a whole lot. So, I make sure we have enough snacks and beverages to hold us over until our meals. Depending on the length of our visit I may fully stock the refrigerator in case we choose to dine in and cook. We like options! Outside of grocery shopping I do love a little retail therapy and the Mayfaire Town Center has all the stores with all the things!
I must put myself on a budget when I’m in this type of setting because window shopping turns into real purchases for me. I have minimal self-restraint when at the perfect retail location with all my favorite things. Oh… AND don’t let there be a SALE going on! I like having the convenience of shopping, restaurants and entertainment close by. I also like that we are about ten minutes away from the beach and about twenty from historic downtown Wilmington.
I get the best of the best! There are many local attractions that you can take advantage of and explore Wilmington or go fishing, boating or even golfing. This post is #NotSponsored
Overall, I love staying at the Homewood Suites whenever I get a chance. My family can spread out and enjoy their own space whether lounging in the living area or bedroom. I am a sucker for conveniences and love having everything I need at the grasp of my fingertips. I also should mention if you have a hybrid or electric vehicle there is a complimentary electric charging station on the premises. You also get free parking!
