I chose this particular hotel after reading the reviews of this and the other hotels in the area, since it is the #1 choice. We had a very nice check-in experience with a University of Maryland student and the hotel... More

A hotel is only as good as its staff, and the people at the Clarion are among the best. For the price you pay, this place is golden!

I was at this hotel while visiting the University of Maryland for a student conference. Many people were in the group, and we were accommodated excellently. The staff are very friendly and considerate. I would highly recommend this hotel for people staying in College Park.

This past November I spent a weekend at the Clarion for a Students for Sensible Drug Conference and let me just say the staff and overall facility was amazing.

In my experience, hotels tend to treat students as second class citizens. In this case, they went out of their way to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves. The left the fundome open... More
