"Candlewood Suite - value for money, but be aware of location"
I visit Houston fairly regularly for business, staying at the Downtown mostly. For this trip, I wanted to stay near the Houston Galleria and opted for the Candlewood Suites for a change.
map, I saw how "close" this hotel was to the Galleria, and thought that it would be an easy walk (I like to walk) to and from these two places. But I forget how BIG Houston is, and Candlewood Suites By The Galleria isn't exactly by the Galleria. Its a 30-minute fairly inconvenient walk, crossing one major highway before you actually get to the Galleria. And I was reminded by my colleagues that people don't walk in Houston, which is a shame. It would have been a fantastic option if the Galleria area has a dedicated walking/cycling route.
Anyhow, back to the hotel - this was my first stay at the Candlewood Suites, The hotel is definitely value-for-money - excellent bed/sleep, with a full-functioning kitchenette area.
The gym was adequate for my needs - one multi-gym, a treadmill, two cross trainers, and free weights, which works if you want to have a quick work-out. The hotel is also equipped with a laundry facility, and the Candlewood Cupboard (where you have a selection of food stuff you buy if you need). But if you prefer eating out, Boudreaux's Cajun Kitchen and Subway are a 5-min walk away, next to the Home Depot.
As my previous suggestion, perhaps the hotel may want to give IHG points to its members if the member elect not to have his room clean daily - save resources.
If you have a car, I would recommend this hotel for its value-for-money, no nonsense facility. [Less]
Just fine to stay while being treated at Medical Center. Walk across parking lot to fast food and short drive to nice restaurants. Nothing fancy here. Safe place considering the neighborhood and part[More]
of the city. No covered passenger unloading. Extremely small "lobby". [Less]
