We stayed at Candlewood for 7 nights in December because our first hotel choice (Salisbury Hotel) was fully booked. Searching for hotels "with pantries" lead me to this hotel. When I saw the full kitchen on the web I just thought of the cash we would save from cooking our own full breakfast! The rates were fine considering the hotel doesn't have room service (unless you are staying more that 8 nights) nor a restaurant. Since we are not messy and are very conscious about saving water from daily laundry we decided to book the room and did not regret it at all! Knowing beforehand of the hotel's similarity to a time sharing room/apartment we did not get annoyed at the lack of daily maid service nor change of towels or bed sheets. We only asked for towels after 2 nights and plenty were delivered to last 3 more days! I was only annoyed that our garbage would pile up fast but I just pretended to be in an apartment where you leave it out the door and eventually someone passes by and removes it. I re-used the plastic bags from our shopping spree at grocery stores. Once the garbage bags were picked up daily I was happy with my full kitchen! The room wasn't "that" big but it was fine for the two of us and "we did" have space to hide the suitcases like the spot behind the reclining chair and the top of the closet. Water pressure was fine and so was the heater. We did not turn of the air conditioner at all and just slightly opened the window for a breeze of fresh air to come in. The room was cool all day and night. We did close the window at night because the noise from the street does reach up to the 32nd floor facing the front of the hotel! The front desk agents were polite and greeted whenever we re-entered the hotel lobby. I liked the free warm oatmeal cookies placed on the front desk during the evenings! That was cute and so was a little treat inside our microwave oven! The front desk agent was very acomodating as we requested (via email) an early check-in and a high floor (if possible) and it was granted as soon as the room was ready at noon! A hotel that goes out of it's way to do this is a winner! Everything else is forgiven! The location was excellent for restaurant hopping on 9th street and it's just a few steps from Time Square, Broadway and the metro station! On our next visit to the Big Apple "this" will be our first hotel choice from all the rest! Kudos to Monica Narvaez the Guest Services Supervisor for making our stay a great experience! She made a big difference!
