    Hotel is non-smoking, but has a strong odor in hallway and room of pot. Nothing worse than being in a hotel you can't wait for the night to be over so you can check out. Area has a seedy feel to it. Elevator seems rickety.More

    I do not recall a microwave in the room we stayed in. The room was somewhat small and there may not have been a proper spot to place one. Whether any of Clarion's guest rooms contain microwaves, I'd ask front desk personnel.
