We had planned our trip to New York even down to the hotel to stay at while there. The one we originally chose had shared bath facilities in some of their suites and we felt edgy staying there. Upon researching the area, we found Candlewood Suites. It had good reviews. The room was small but sufficient. Closet was tiny but we actually had just enough room for our eveningwear etc. The kitchen facilities were well stocked with dishes and utensils but not used by us much. We were on vacation. It could however prove useful to those on a budget. Television was a flat panel with Direct TV and a DVD player with DVD borrowing at the front desk. Free wi-fi is available but they change the password every Thursday (unbeknownst to us) The only real caveat is that the front desk personnel was ill trained and not onboard with one another. Our first day we asked for more coffee (maker is in room) We were told we would have to buy it from the commissary downstairs for the rest of our stay. First day was free though? The next day they handed us a few packs to use daily. There was a problem with the concierge panel in the lobby as well and it gave us directions that placed us about a mile from where we were headed. We called down several times one day to get clean washrags and finally had to physically go to the desk and get them. (They do not clean the room or replace things like this during a discounted extended stay) Good room, nice people and the central location is great. We would stay there again.
