Homewood Suites unveils planning tool

Homewood Suites by Hilton is launching Suite Selection, an interactive room selection tool designed to give guests full control when checking in online.
The new initiative for the upscale, all-suite, residential-style hotels will be launched in the first quarter of 2007. The functionality will be available to Hilton HHonors Gold and Diamond members. By end of 2007, the extended stay brand anticipates making this tool available to anyone with an HHonors profile.

Available on www.homewoodsuites.com, Suite Selection allows Hilton HHonors guests to view a floor plan and select a suite based on their personal preferences.

According to an official release, Homewood Suites by Hilton will be the first hotel brand in the industry to offer guests the ability to view a hotel floor plan and select a room preference in advance of arrival. Suite Selection features floor plans, photographs and descriptions of every room type in the nearly 200 hotels throughout the U.S., as well as hotels in Canada, and Mexico (to open in March 2007.)
