Candlewood Suites was a good choice for our trip to see Springfield's historic sites. The hotel is not downtown, but it is in a quiet spot close to major roads and some good restaurants. I originally booked three nights at the new Residence Inn next door which provides breakfast, but when I compared costs, I realized that Candlewood was $22 a night less with no breakfast -- it was a no brainer to cancel Residence and rebook at Candlewood. We took breakfast and some dinner items with us and saved money by utilizing the kitchen in our suite; however, we did enjoy a good dinner at Smoky Bones one evening.
Our queen suite was perfect for a 3-night stay. After spending all day sightseeing at the Lincoln sites, statehouse, and executive mansion, we returned each evening to relax in the more than adequate space. The hotel is fairly new and well maintained by friendly staff. My only complaint would be that the work space was a little too close to the kitchen, but I guess that's due to the fact that the work table top also doubles as an eating table.
The TV had decent reception. We had a little trouble staying connected to the wireless internet, but after borrowing a cable from the front desk, we encountered no further problems. We would certainly consider the Candlewood brand in the future, especially for a multiple-night stay.
