I was flown in on someone else's dime, not really expecting much more than a place to hang my hat. To my surprise, the room was quite nice and well situated with amenities-- including a full kitchen (as well as a full-sized refrigerator). Though I could not imagine spending enough time in my room to need a dishwasher, it had one. Obviously, this was a suite and was set up for extended stay guests, but it was nice for a typical hotel guest nevertheless.
There were tea bags available in a public sort of pantry/honor bar area as well as a small selection of DVDs, snacks, and sundries. The fitness room also looked adequate, though I never used it.
I would like to add that the laundry detergent was not the weapons-grade irritant used in most hotels that plays havok with my sensitive skin. Thank you to Candlewood for not giving me a rash as so many "multi-star" hotels have.
The usual boiler plate of wonderful staff and other pleasantries goes here. (It's true, but I don't feel like rattling on about it)
I recommend it if you find yourself in Springfield.
