Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by car91 comfortable and convenient
After reading a lot of reviews for other hotels cramped, no frills, high priced rooms, Candlewood came up on the grid. I couldn't have been more pleased with the location, a couple blocks from the lights of Time Square. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The kitchenette was handy, although we never took the time to cook. Hey, we were on vacation. Staff was friendly and helpfull. Price for our stay was very reasonable for NYC. I would highly recomend.

Excellent stay - very much recommended - accommodation and suite amenities excellent. Staff friendly, happy and helpful. Environment in and outside of hotel felt very safe.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chrisvmc62 candlewood changed my mind on day one!!!!
My husband booked a stay for me and my daughter for three days we flew in from London and after the usual rude ride though JFK customs was rather tired and irate. We arrived at 1pm two hours before check in time but the much welcoming happy face on reception informed us that as they were not full and we could check in straight away!! thank you we needed it by now. I will mention here that on a previous stay in New York we stayed at The Roosevelt Hotel which is quite grand so my daughter and i were a little underwhelmed by the Candlewood suites and also its location. But
after a day here we were enjoying the very friendly and helpful staff.
The room is quite basic but clean! very important and the little kitchenette would be very useful if you were catering for yourself. The lobby also smelt gorgeous when you walked in and was also always clean and tidy. On our first morning we noticed that the hairdryer in our bathroom was not working and to my teenage daughter this spelt disaster !! I went down to reception who radioed to someone and asked me to go back to my room and they would come and sort it out and within 5 minutes !! another very friendly member of staff arrived at our room left us a new one and also informed me that he would fit the replacement to the wall whilst we were out and yes when we got back the new one was fitted to the wall i also saw the gentleman on a few occasions afterwards and he always asked if all was well with the dryer and enquired to what we had planned for that day. So my summary of the Candlewood suites is this after staying at grander hotels the first impression was more motel then hotel but I have to say i could find no fault what so ever
clean rooms , lovely staff the only down side is location which is in fact about a 20 minute walk from Times square and not quite as a desirable location as the grander hotels but would i stay her again?
YES!!! the staff were better than other hotels i have stayed in within the USA and that includes the more up market ones too. So a big thank you to all the staff at Candlewood for making our stay very very pleasant indeed . I would definitely stay here again when i come back to New York on a budget.
Once again Thank You

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Athensfan Good choice for a long stay
Stayed there 8 nights during a trip to NYC.
Prior to our arrival, we exchanged a couple of emails with the front desk staff and they were really helpful and eager to reply to any questions. We had asked for a room on the upper floors and were indeed put in one on the 24th floor.
The location is convenient; close to major metro stations and a bit off the extremely busy Times Square. For sure the Garment District (where the hotel is located) is less picturesque than Soho and Tribeca but still excellent for sightseeing.
Check is was fast and there was some sort of welcome gift for the IHG rewards club members.
The room was really spacious - especially for Manhattan standards. Big bed, very comfortable mattress, a desk/table and an armchair. A key advantage is the closet and the TV furniture with the drawers. We took all of our clothes out of the suitcases and put them in there so we did not have the suitcases lying around in the room during our stay.
Bathroom was OK and the kitchenette was handy for the morning coffee and a quick snack.
This is a hotel without any luxurious amenities or design furniture but it suited our purpose of a long stay in a very comfortable room without feeling trapped in a tiny box for 8 days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jansta Comfy room close to everything
Just spent a week at
candlewood Suites and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Had a small hiccup at check in when confirmed room was not allocated. I had booked a guaranteed view studio which on check in I was told there were none available. After a robust discussion with front desk staff member she eventually found a view room and checked us into it. Location was great - easy access to subways and nothing was too far to get to. Handy onsite free laundry. All staff extremely helpful and always had a smile on their face. Candlewood cupboard regularly ran out of brewed coffee during our stay but the cookies were great! Would recommend highly!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Y50alh Hall family tour 2013 tennis n beer
Having read some reviews approached with an open mind. The reception staff (Allyson) were great, changing rooms to a lower floor on request even giving us two rooms opposit each other. Hotel/suites very clean and tidy as stressed by others the rooms are small but how much time do you spend in the room when in NYC. As for the weekly house keeping I don't mind that saves having to put things away before the,maid arrived. Beds were comfy loved the reclining chair very relaxing. Only down side was not single beds I shared with my daughter husband with our sone would have been nice to put the rug rats in one room. Location is great near are attractions but away from the,main noise. Will be back

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nirvana Comfortable 11 day Stay
The room was adequate the bed was comfortable and the shower was very good. Its all that you need for a good stay.
The hotel is well appointed. The room I stayed in was next to the elevator and I had no noise issues whatsoever.
I liked that there was always someone at the front desk and they were always pleasant and helpful no matter the time.
The laundry facilities were very clean and came in handy - the small kitchenette was also convenient.
I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ltdan67 Great service and accessible
I am commenting from a manual wheelchair user point of view. The accessibility of the hotel was good, with no issues getting in/out of the hotel lobby and with check in/out process. I had a room with a roll in shower and fold down bench and that was great. The bed was a little high for me, but not a problem. The bed itself was soft and comfortable and I enjoyed 3 good night's of sleep. The location of the hotel was close enough to several attractions that I could push to/from them with no issues. Definitely will stay here for next trip to NYC. I had a late checkout because of being IHG Reward member and that was great, since our flight wasn't until late afternoon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Linda1904 Compact room but sufficient
Very friendly front desk staff, although not allocated the requested rooms. Had a room at the back on the 17th floor, very quiet but quite small but OK for us for a 3 night stay. Needs to have more cutlery, but otherwise sufficient equipment. Nice comfortable bed. Small but enough room in the bathroom but could not get Cold water. All in all would recommend for short stays.

I was not aware of the housekeeping arrangement until after i checked in. Found "once a week" housekeeping was not enough. Front desk staff smiled a lot and were friendly but not helpful. I found this review impossible to complete.

Thought the room was small for a "suite". Did not like the idea of room only being serviced once a week. Had booked for 8 nights but moved out after 1 night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ASmith27 Candlewood Suites Times Square
The staff were very courteous and helpful, great customer service. The rooms were nice and clean, having the kitchenette was great so we could have small meals or snacks while there. The location was phenomenal, within walking distance to many main NYC attractions. Considering the location, the rooms were quite affordable. Would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone who is wanting to stay in the Times Square area of NYC.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DBDB Great location and good value
Would definitely stay here again. The room was ideal for our week long stay because we had the freedom to have breakfast and light meals in comfort. The location is just a short walk from all of the Times Square action. There were a couple things broken in our room when we arrived (a light and a shelf). We reported them to reception and some one came to fix the straight away. The staff were all helpful and friendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marlene0001 Good, but we have to make de beds and clean de bathroom everyday
The hotel is good, clean and the young people in the reception are nice. However I did not like the following problems:
1) We make the beds, and clean the room every day. If you ask for this service you must to pay an additional fare.
2) No storage for the bags. We needed to leave our bags and this was not allowed, and thus we had to search for another place just to leave the bags after the checkout time.
3) We asked for ice at eleven o clock PM in the reception and the lady in the reception did not show good mood and she took more than one hour to send the ice, even after several calls asking for the ice. Included in the phone she did not show good will for do this and answered in a bad way.
4) There is not any possibility to have breakfast, there is not a restaurant.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Poor Service and no Room Cleaning
- It has a pretty good lie near the Times Square
- Some of the Stuff have been helpful and nice
- Nobody cleaned the Room
- Some of the Stuff have been unkind
- We booked a Room for 4 People and there are no rooms for 4.
So we had to book another room for the same price.
