Homewood Suites by Hilton(R) Rates Number One for 'Best Bang for the Buck' on 2007 Zagat Survey.

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Homewood Suites by Hilton, the international brand of upscale, all-suite, residential-style hotels, scored the number one spot among midrange hotel chains for the best value for the dollar in the Zagat Survey: 2007 U.S. Top Hotels, Resorts and Spas. The new guide covers 1,011 "Top Places To Stay And Play" surveyed by 14,461 consumers (including 936 travel professionals). Homewood Suites bested Residence Inn and Crowne Plaza for the top spot.

"We are proud to be rated first in the 'Top Bangs for the Buck' category of such a highly-regarded guide for travelers. This is a clear indication that many Americans appreciate the extended stay concept and the value we offer to travelers. Extended-stay hotels are ideal for the average American family as they offer many amenities and better value to consumers for the price of the hotel stay," said Bill Duncan, vice president, marketing and sales, Homewood Suites by Hilton.

"Homewood Suites, according to our surveyors, consistently provides a very good and moderately-priced experience for the weary traveler," said Tim Zagat. "We are happy to have them at the top of the 'Top Bangs for the Buck' category."
