Because I made the mistake of scheduling a business trip to the Miami area the day after the College Football National Championship was played there, I had very limited choices for hotels (many were sold out). This location was recommended since it was closest to where I had to work and actually had rooms available.
Check-in was very quick and convenient, with a very efficient front desk clerk. I was pleasantly surprised to find I was automatically upgraded to a larger suite due to my Priority Club Rewards membership. Strongly recommend that you ask for a room at the end of the hallway of each floor - you can see from the outside of the building that those rooms are obviously larger than the rest of the rooms.
Room décor was a bit dated, but it was very clean. The air conditioner was a bit loud, but because the bedroom was separate from the room with the unit it didn't keep me awake. Yes, the hotel is underneath the approach to the runways at Miami International, but I couldn't hear them in my well insulated room.
There is a park next to the hotel with a running path; it opens at sunrise, and it is a bit of an oasis if you want to get in a workout. While breakfast was not offered at this hotel, there was a Dunkin Donuts within a short walk from the location. There are also other small restaurants all within walking distance.
Overall the Candlewood Suites is an average hotel, but I was very grateful to have found a room in the first place.
