Video Preview: My First Stay at a Home2 Suites by Hilton Hotel

I recently booked a reservation for a room at a Home2 Suites hotel property by Hilton — specifically, the Home2 Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh Cranberry, PA, which is located 20.7 miles almost due north of Pittsburgh — for $75.20 plus tax, which is a very good room rate for this brand…

It will never have drawers — unless some guy decides to flop his boxer shorts used as underwear onto the night table. The night table has a smaller night table stacked under it; so it can be pulled out for extra space.

Elizabeth — who was the woman behind the front desk at this hotel property when I arrived — checked me in; and she was as cheerful and helpful as possible to me.

At the time this article was written, I did not have time to apply a full and complete review of this hotel property; but I intend to rectify that in a future article — along with those dozens of aforementioned photographs.

Please stay tuned…
