Candlewood Suites El Paso
     This week Hubs and I took the opportunity to get out of our house and stay somewhere new.  Candlewood Suites in NE El Paso is the only national brand hotel in this part of town.  Upon arrival, the lobby was clean and inviting, and the front desk staff offered suggestions for dinner, entertainment and other activities in town.   

        Our room was a King Suite, with a nice size kitchen (Larger than the kitchen we used in Alaska for way longer than a night), recliner, desk, and tv/dvd player. Our room was neat and tidy, and smelled fresh and clean when we arrived.  The bed was comfortable with a mattress that was not too soft of firm, and they offered foam and down pillows to meet everyones preference.
In-Suite kitchen
     The in-suite kitchen has an easy to clean, wood style flooring, that came in handy when I dropped my morning coffee, which transitions into carpet in the sleeping area and natural stone tile in the bathroom.  Both the kitchen and bathroom countertops were a very pretty granite stone. 
Fully stocked with all necessities

Candlewood Suites location
      I was pleased to see a nice guide to El Paso in our room, along with information on local restaurants and near-by attractions.  The location of our stay was perfect for the 4th of July.  Candlewood Suites is across the street from Cohen Stadium, where a lovely fireworks display is set off every year, which we watched form the hotel.  The hotel's parking lot connects to a movie theatre as well as a steak restaurant.  We enjoyed walking to both during our stay.  
Candlewood Suites gym
     Along with a good location, Candlewood Suites offers an on-location gym, business center, and a Cupboard with items like basic toiletries, complimentary coffee (Woohoo) and snacks.       

           The only 2 downsides to our stay at Candlewood Suites, were within our room.  Some of the cabinet pulls in the kitchen had a grease-like film on them, and the photo frames and door ways were a bit dusty, and Hubs pointed out.  Neither of which affected our stay, or our enjoyment of the activities around the hotel.
