Candlewood Suites Chicago/Naperville
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Warrenville
Reviewed 29 October 2009

As a Priority Club (Holiday Inn) member, I often stay at Staybridge Suites in Oakbrook Terrace. However, I chose this hotel in the same hotel family because it was a block from my meeting and reasonably priced ($10 less per night than the Staybridge Suites). After staying here, I will now travel the extra distance to stay at the Staybridge Suites. On the positive side, the hotel rooms, albeit relatively small, are nice, clean and functional with nice beds. It is an extended stay hotel with full kitchen. The dining table doubles as a desk. The TV (although an older model) had lots of cable channels and HBO, and a DVD/VCR player. There is plenty of free parking. The front desk staff was courteous and gave a gift bag of cookies, bottled water and gum to Priority Club members. (Members also get a free USA Today in the lobby as well). Internet was free and fast (both wi-fi and ethernet line). However, the amenities compared to other extended stay hotels like Staybridge Suites, Residence Inn and Homewood Suites is sorely lacking.
First, unlike other extended stay hotels that replace bed linen weekly but refresh towels and tidy the room up (e.g. make up the bed), this hotel will not touch your room for a week. If you need fresh towels, you have to exchange them at the front desk.
Second, there is no complimentary breakfast, and there are no restaurants (or grocery stores) close by. They do, however, have a small convenience store inside.
Third, there is no business center to print boarding passes, but there is a fitness room
Fourth, they use an automated system for people to reach you when they call in. If you do not set up your voicemail on your room phone, people cannot reach you.
Fifth, the toiletries are real budget quality. The combined shampoo/conditioner was like water. Finally, I found the temperature controls hard to work and the unit constantly running, so I shut it off completely.
Don't get me wrong. This is a nice clean hotel that just lacks some of the amenities that I am used to. I feel that the extra $10 and travel distance to stay at another extended stay hotel like Staybridge Suites, is more than worth it, especially what you will save on breakfast. I will not stay at another Candlewood Suites.

I disliked this place immensely and left much sooner than anticipated. And what will I be missing? A tiny, semi-clean room with old, noisy appliances or perhaps the lovely dictator who runs it and his army of mindless drones??? I think not! Save yourself a headache, go somewhere else, anywhere else.

I was able to get this hotel for $39 a night from hotwire. It cost me $50 after taxes and fees.

i was at the hotel when i first opened 5-6 years back. not much has changed, and its a bit worn, but still very clean and tidy.

The guy at the front was nice - he told me i was lucky to be able to get the rate that i did because the hotel was completely booked for the next two weeks with corporate guests.

the room was plenty spacious,. beds were better than they used to be, but they aren't courtyard, fairfield's or hamptons. then again, i paid $50 total.

location was great. close to 88 and plenty of shopping, target, pharmacy, food, etc.

it's a no brainer for the deal i got.

Nice place. I like the location, and it always seems to be quiet. The kitchen is nice and the quality of the appliances and utensils and other equipment is above average. Sometimes, spaghetti cooked in a kitchenette is as close to home as we can get for quite some time, and this room gave me that.
The free DVD rentals were a big hit with my son, and the staff was very helpful.
This has been my pick of hotels for my last two business trips to Chicago, and most likely, it will be my first choice on my next visit.

I used to LOVE Candlewood Suites back when you could get them on Hotwire for $36 a night. But those days are most certainly over.

I am currently staying at the Candlewood Suites Warrenville for free on Priority Club points, but for this Memorial Day weekend the website had the rooms listed for $119! The studio rooms really are small and simple little rooms, with queen beds only, no sofa, no free breakfast option, though fully equipped with kitchens and dishwashers, and free little laundromats available. However, there are no exhaust fans in the bathroom (rather a big deal with a teensy room like this) and, what DO they stuff their pillows with, clothes that guests have left behind? They're a mass of unyeilding lumps.

As far as other extended stay options (rooms with full kitchens) in the area for this same Memorial day weekend- for $10 a night more ($129), one could have a one bedroom King suite at the Residence Inn which is basically right across the street, which includes free breakfasts and afternoon snacks and beer or wine. The Extended Stay in Lisle isn't too far away (5 miles), they ask $54 nightly rate for a King bed studio and the rooms are a bit larger than the Candlewood's, basically you just miss out on the dishwasher and free laundromat.

You can bet your sweet bippy I'll only be staying at Candlewood Suites when they can be gotten on Hotwire or Priceline.
