, (PressExposure) January 14, 2008 -- Homewood Suites by Hilton, the international brand of upscale, all-suite, residential-style hotels, has opened the 125-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel Newburgh â Stewart Airport.

âThis build demonstrates Homewood Suitesâ continued foray into the airport market, and we are excited to offer this property as an attractive lodging option to those visiting the Newburgh area,â said Bruce Fox, general manager.
