Homewood Suites by Hilton?, the international brand of all-suite, residential-style hotels, today announced the opening of its newest property in Fort Myers, Florida. The five-story, 133-suite hotel is owned and managed by Cooper Hotels. General Manager, Debbie Clark brings more than 20 years of experience to this venture, which is coupled with 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry from Director of Sales Maureen Killeen. Clark began her career in hotels in the mid-1980’s as a housekeeper and diligently worked her way up the ranks to the position she holds today, learning the industry from the bottom up.

“We continue to see strong demand in the extended stay hotel segment and feel this property helps to fill a need in the area surrounding the airport in Fort Myers,” said Clark. “Whether traveling alone for business or with the entire family, guests can indulge in the comforts of home at Homewood Suites?. In times where both business and leisure travelers are pinching pennies, we offer a great value with standard amenities such as fully equipped kitchens, complimentary high-speed Internet access, and separate living and sleeping areas.”

Homewood Suites by Hilton – Fort Myers Airport-FGCU offers studio, one-, and two-bedroom suites, and five handicap accessible suites. Additional guest amenities include a daily complimentary Suite Start? hot breakfast in the hotel’s hospitality center—the “Lodge”—a Welcome Home? reception featuring a complimentary light meal and beverages Monday-Thursday evenings, an executive business center, and a 24-hour on-site pantry. The hotel also offers a swimming pool and 919 square feet of meeting space.

Located at 16450 Corporate Commerce Way, the hotel is conveniently located less than a mile away from Southwest Florida International Airport. Major nearby corporations include Florida Gulf Coast University, Chico’s and Coca Cola Company. Guests can enjoy many restaurants that are close to the hotel including Islamorada Fish Company, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Blu Sushi, and Miller’s Ale House. Nearby attractions include Gulf Coast Town Center Mall, the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel, and multiple sports arenas.

Launched in 1989, the Homewood Suites by Hilton brand today has more than 250 hotels open with approximately 140 in the development pipeline. Beyond its spacious suites and home-like amenities, additional guest features include an on-site Suite Shop? convenience store, complimentary grocery shopping services*, a complete business center, and laundry services at most locations.

The innovative brand is a guest favorite among both business and leisure travelers, consistently taking the top spot on key satisfaction studies.
