Great Stay in Bellevue
Posted Jun 23, 2015
We stayed at the Candlewood Suites for 7 days while in Bellevue visiting friends who live just a couple miles from the hotel. We were far more comfortable here than we would have been in a regular hotel, especially since we prefer to prepare our own food. The kitchen in our room was well equipped with a full size fridge, 2 burner stove top, range hood/microwave, dishwasher, pots/pans, cutlery, cutting board, dishes, kitchen linens, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, salt & pepper, etc. The room had a nice sized table with 2 chairs, which was great for dining, working on the laptop or playing games.
The queen bed was comfortable, although quite awkwardly near the wall on one side --- I would much rather have a king bed, but the king rooms when we booked were priced prohibitively higher. There was even a nice recliner in the room. The closet was large.
The bathroom was spotless and the towels are very nice. I especially liked that there was a spacious cabinet and drawer in the vanity, which helped keep countertop clutter to a minimum. It was easy and quick to exchange used towels for fresh at the front desk.
The laundry is housed in a cheery room that is flooded with daylight. Using the washers and dryers is cost free. Situated next door to the laundry is a small gym with a great selection of equipment. I used the gym daily during our stay.
A nice extra is the selection of games, movies, books and small kitchen appliances that can be borrowed during the stay.
