DAVIDSON – Seeing a giant, life-sized duck when walking into the Homewood Suites isn’t a typical occurrence. On Nov. 13, however, one would have seen a line of people doing the ‘duck dance’ along with a life-sized duck to celebrate the five-year anniversary of the Homewood Suites Hotel.

In-house guests, residents, corporate accounts and staff members gathered to listen to live music while experiencing the hotel’s newest amenities.

The main attraction is the Nautical Nook, a full-service bar that serves wine, beer, and mixed drinks 4-10 p.m. The bar opened in May 2013, drawing in many people from all over the community.  

“We personally chose Davidson because it’s an awesome community and the environment was very nurturing.” Manager Dominique Wright said. “Davidson is the perfect location for a hotel because it’s a growing community.”

Not many Homewood Suite hotels offer a bar, and the growth the hotel has experienced since it first opened five years ago has shown how much Davidson has grown as a community.

Since the opening of Homewood Suites five years ago, the hotel has encouraged new businesses to come to the area. It’s now surrounded by restaurants, shops and offices. 

Homewood Suites remains the only full-service hotel in Davidson. While some guests were staying at the hotel for seven days, others were staying for seven weeks.

“In five years, we hope to have an even bigger hotel.” Wright said. “We want to move forward and build stronger relationships with the community so we can give exceptional service to the Davidson residents.”
