So disappointed. I stay here about a dozen times a year. And tonight the service was unbelievably bad with (what I thought an small issue that should be dealt with). Nothing like having the headboard on the bed falling on you in the middle of the night (1:45am) because the GLUE / NAILS failed. Called the front desk and they...

The Clarion Hotel is located at a very busy street, I requested a room to the back side and the noise level was okay. The hotel is old and could use some serious updates, but it was clean and the service was good. The ice machine on my floor didn't work, but the staff was helpful and I got my...

I stayed at the Clarion for three weeks. It was fine for the first couple weeks, until they upgraded my room to the higher end suites on the 9th floor. And then it was fantastic! The staff is very friendly and professional. If you are looking for decent accomodations at an affordable rate. Try the Clarion.

This hotel is dated, had unhelpful check in and shuttle persons working. Our flight was delayed and landed at 3am, and even though 24 hour service is included in the price we PAID we had to call 3 times and wait OVER 1.25 hour for the shuttle to pick us up. The front desk kept blowing us off and putting...

Thank you Sandra P for taking the time to review your stay. I am disappointed to see that we were unable to exceed your expectations. I can understand frustration while waiting for the shuttle, however, as you mentioned, several flights were delayed and our shuttles have capacity for only 11 guests at a time. Road conditions can also affect the...

My boyfriend & I booked a room for our 2 year anniversary and this hotel put a damper on the evening. Upon check in it was extremely busy & they only had 1 front desk attendant working. It took 25 minutes for us waiting in line to be "checked in" only to find our room was not yet ready, at...

The Clarion is perfectly suitable for a traveler, business or pleasure. It is quite large and seemed to have a pretty good conference area. I only stayed one night before flying home, so my experience is limited, but it was a good stay. There isn't much in the surrounding area, pretty industrial and you would need a car or taxi...

I had a very important appointment in Calgary so my mother and I flew and stayed here. Let me start by saying the entire stay was pretty awful. My brother met up with us and stayed too. The front desk staff were terribly rude, the beds were uncomfortable and the hotel had a real skeevy feeling. My brother got stuck...

I do not like leaving bad reviews for anyone or thing. However.. in this instance this establishment has left an incredribly horrific vibe to the entire stressfull enough business trip to Calgary in the dead cold of winter.

I can not recommend the Clarion Hotel and Conference Centre. First, the hotel is not near the airport, (it takes about 20-30 minutes to get to the hotel, depending on traffic, with the airport van) and it is not near the downtown - it is kind of in a "no-man's land". Secondly, their airport shuttle does not operate at convenient...
