I travel very often for work and my work in Oklahoma has brought me to the McAlester area for extended periods of time. I was staying at another IHG hotel in the area with COMPLETE SATIFICATION, but was needing just a little more area to spreadout. This Candlewood Suites has the space I need. I have stayed in other Candlewood Suites, but most of them only offered the Studio Suties. This one has the bedroom suites availble which are amazing. Something about being able to close a door to where you are sleeping to separate from the living area makes you feel like you are in an apartment or at home. Having pretty much a full kitchen (Including a dishwasher) as opposed to just a microwave and mini frig allows me to cook some nights over eating out every night. On top of all of that, it is actually cheaper per night to stay here for my extended periods of time over the other IHG hotel where I do have a coporate rate.
