This is my second extended stay at the Candlewood, the first one being in the Spring of 2010 for relocating to DC. That first stay was for 3 months. It did not feel like I was in a hotel. Rather, it felt like home. Largely that was due to the friendly staff. They were always pleasant. Princess (yes, that is... More

Candlewood is like a second home for me in Virginia/DC. My job allows me to travel atleast once every 3-4 months and would spend anything between 2-3 weeks. It is one of the most pleasant experience that i have got so far for multiple reasons: 1} The hospitality of the front desk (princess/abraham} is just amazing. Not only they recognize... More

My team and I had business meetings with a potential client from London. Although you would not automatically think of a candlewood as a premium hotel.....Dave Monroe and his team at this hotel make it an absolute 5 star experience! I cannot recommend the hotel highly enough!

Everything about this hotel is great. My room was extremely quiet and comfortable. I was able to sleep well, and accomplish my business at the large desk the suite provided. The staff was super super attentive and the location is superb for my needs in the greater DC area. I have been to other Candlewoods but they don't hold a... More
