The king suite has the lavatory separate from the bathroom. Easier for two people to get ready and the mirror doesn’t fog. All rooms are non smoking. Wish there was a free breakfast or continental breakfast. Proximity to the hospital, reason for our visit, is in close.

Anonymous, Thank you for choosing our location for your recent accommodation needs. Pleased to hear that you had a positive experience with us. I regret that the lack of the typical assumed Continental Breakfast is not something that the Candlewood Suites brand offers. Persons wishing to have this amenity should look at the Staybridge Suites, which is also an IHG brand, but offers this amenity. Don H General Manager

Comfortable and Roomy

Pros: I was very surprised at how much room these suites offer. There is tons of closet space and the beds are really comfy.
Cons: shower are not very good and do not detach for ease of use
Location: 45 minute walk on the gorgeous White River Trail to reach downtown.
I was very surprised at how much room these suites offer. There is tons of closet space and the beds are really comfy. Bathroom does not have much space to put clothes or other items unless you clear all the towels off the rack. The sink and mirror are just outside the bathroom which is probably best for a group of folks sharing the room. I recommend bringing your own shower head because they are not very good and do not detach.

Very convenient to Indianapolis medical district

This place is well suited if you need to be close to IU Hospital, Riley Hospital, or IUPUI on the west side of downtown. They have shuttles to the hospital, and the room has a small kitchen (full size refrigerator, microwave, cupboards with cups, plates, silverware and a few dishes) if you don't have time to be running out to eat. In the lobby, there is also a small pantry where you can buy snacks, drinks, frozen dinners, cereal, etc. There is no on sight restaurant and no free continental breakfast. Room service is weekly. The area is very quiet and nice to have two separate rooms (living room/kitchen combined and bedroom). I would stay here again.

Where's the cleaning staff?

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: no maids
I would not recommend this hotel to my dog! They neglect to tell you that this hotel is also an apartment building and dorm for IUPUI students. What does this mean? It means that they do NOT clean hotel guests room for 7 days. I stayed here for two nights and ended up cleaning the room myself. Do yourself a favor and pay the additional $40 a night to say in a real hotel.

Excellent 3 Day Stay for business. I would recommend to anyone for pleasure or business.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Candlewood Suites was everything I hoped it would be. After a long 10 hour drive, I felt like I was at home. The suite was quite comfortable, equipped with everything I needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was easy access to everywhere.

Excellent experience

I was very pleased with my stay at Candlewood. The rooms very spacious and clean, the staff very helpful from check in until we left. You get twice the room at half the cost. I travel for business and will always saty at Candlewood when in Indianapolis. If you are looking for value, this is the place. Safe secure FREE parking.
