Candlewood Suites is the perfect hotel for your next long-term stay in Richfield. This extended stay hotel was newly remodeled in 2012, offers studio and 1-bedroom suites with fully equipped kitchens, and is conveniently located close to the highway and the Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport. They have a long list of amenities which make you feel as though you are staying at your “home away from home”. Here are just some of the features that set them apart from other extended-stay hotels:
- 24 hour gym with aerobic and cardio equipment.
- Complimentary washer and dryer for doing your laundry.
- A 24 hour convenience store known as “Candlewood Cupboard®”.
- Lovely outdoor gazebo area with tables and grills.
- A Lending Locker so you can borrow what you need (board games, crock pot, etc.).
- Free in-room Wi-Fi and a business center that includes a computer and printer.
When touring the suites the first thing I noticed was how nice they were. They have a modern feel that isn’t too cold or uncomfortable. The suites could just as easily be someone’s upscale apartment. Room features include a large workspace, an overstuffed recliner, a flat screen TV with a DVD player, a queen bed, and of course the kitchen. There are 2 room types available, the studio and 1 bedroom. The 1 bedroom also features a pullout couch in the living area. A family of 4 could comfortably sleep in the 1 bedroom suite.
Each suite comes with a fully equipped, modern kitchen. This includes a full-size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, pots and pans, cutlery, and other assorted dishes. Refrigerators have built-in ice makers, so no more middle-of-the-night searches down hallways for an ice-making machine. The bathroom is quite large and very clean with a tub and shower combo.
Candlewood Suites are on average 22% larger than a normal hotel room and their prices are very competitive. And of course, the longer you stay, the lower your daily rate.
If you are staying at Candlewood Suites for work nearby there is no need to rent a car. They offer a shuttle service that will take you where you need to go in a 5 mile radius Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm. They make daily stops to the Best Buy Corporate HQ as well as anywhere else you need to go (like the Mall of America, the grocery store or the airport). Of course if you do bring your car or rent a car parking is free.
Overall my experience at Candlewood Suites was great. I loved the modern updates and all the amenities they offer. I could easily see staying for an extended period here and being completely comfortable the entire time.
