“Great Location, Clean, Needs an Update”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

I spent one night at this hotel. The property located near the Galleria but not in the middle of the Galleria traffic - Off the beaten path. Clean property that has older case goods, TV and decor that needs updating. They knew I was a Priority Club Platinum member and provided me amenities to match my level of members (this does not always happen - even with Intercontinental). The AC was strange because the thermostat on the wall did not actually control the ac and it was a little loud for me, which made for not so good nights sleep. Would like to see it after the update.

This hotel is in need of a facelift, which I remember reading is scheduled to begin April 2012. I would definitely plan to stay here once the renovations are completed. No housekeeping for weekend stays, fresh towels & linens are at the front desk. Front desk service was horrible, but the distance to downtown is less than a 10 minute drive. Not staying here again.

Dear Monthlytraveler09,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are an extended stay hotel and do not offer daily housekeeping. However it is always available upon request. I apologize you received service which was unsatisfactory by the front desk. You comments are being taken seriously and will be discussed. I hope to see you after our renovation is complete.

I just read the review about someone's car getting broken into at this location.....I guess the thieves have now moved inside. My 74-year old mom stayed at this location for over 2 months because she had a fire in her house. While rushing out of her home during the fire, she packed all of her valuables (watches, rings, necklaces, etc.) in her suitcase. She tucked the valuables away and hid them in the bottom of her suitcase in the closet of her hotel room(i.e. the room doesn't have a safe). When she moved back to her house and started unpacking, she realized that someone had gone through her suitcase and stolen all of her valuables. We immediately called the hotel and they said a manager wasn't there and they couldn't call one. After calling the police and filing a police report, I spoke to the manager and general manager and asked if they had access to the records of who entered the room. They said they would pull the activity records to see if anything looked out of the ordinary. For the record, I didn't believe this was going to happen because neither the manager or general manager seemed very surprised or concerned about our loss. I never heard back from either, but we did get a generic form letter from their insurance company saying there is nothing they can do. I am disappointed that a hotel chain would treat a guest like this, especially a guest who was staying there after a tragedy, and lost life-long valuables and memories.

Candlewood Suites by name but not quite in reality, the Houston branch is missing the all night reception and a BUSINESS centre. Travelling on business I have stayed at a few Candlewood Suites and found them really well equipped with an onsite shop, an onsite self service laundry, an on site gym and a pool so had had to ask what happened here in Houston. It was as if the owners forgot the important stuff but remembered the rest. All credit must go to the staff as they were most helpful in helping me check in for my flight.

Room Tip: Not a hotel for business travellers
