Of all the Hilton chains, Homewood Suites is my favorite. And if you're serious about spending time at Six Flags Over Texas, then let me lay out the awesomeness of this hotel.
First, you're a 10 minute walk from the front gate. Another way to look at it is that you are five minutes from the parking lot where you would otherwise pay $20 just to leave your car. There is no parking fee at the hotel.Second, the hotel provides a better than continental breakfast, including omelets, hash browns, or waffles. It is a great way to start the day and will help you avoid buying crappy, overpriced food at Six Flags.Third, all the rooms are suites, so you have a separate sitting area and an efficiency kitchen which gives you space to relax and the ability to cook food or store beverages.Lastly, they also provide a light supper Monday through Thursday which ranges from lasagna to mini hamburgers to fajitas. I actually think it qualifies as a full supper because they usually include salad and side dishes.
Mike and I ate breakfast and arrived at the park before the gates opened at 10am. We were able to survive on a couple of pretzels and constant refills of our commerative glass ($1 refills!) until about 4pm when we went back to the hotel for a power nap and light supper. By 6pm we were back at the park and stayed until closing at 10pm. The Homewood Suites made it possible for us to pace ourselves, thoroughly enjoy our day at the park, and not spend too much time and money on crappy, overpriced food at Six Flags. As season pass holders, we went back for a few hours the next day after breakfast…still didn’t have to pay for parking.
