We hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at the Clarion on December 12th and could not have been happier with everything! Georgene Vessey was such a huge help in organizing and planning and making our day a success. The front desk staff, bartenders and severs were super nice and efficient. The hotel rooms were cozy and clean and the ball... More

JB, We always appreciate feedback from our customers that allow us to improve the experience future guests have at our hotel, but in this instance your second hand knowledge of the billing of your sister's wedding is inaccurate. The receipt that was recently requested actually shows a credit, the amount they will be receiving not an amount due. And as... More

Hotel is handy and front desk was friendly. Had a dip in the hot tub, had a nice burger and a beer in the restaurant. Bed was awesome, comfortable room. We stay here a couple time a year just because we don't want to drive home. Price is reasonable.

The wedding ceremony was also there in a big room off to the side, it was very elegant. The ball room was decorated very beautiful and the food and service was outstanding... More

I stayed here for a wedding in October, the stay started out nice with a quick check in and friendly greeting. I had a room on the highest floor, the elevator was horribly slow our entire stay and ended up taking the stairs in most cases. The room was spacious and with two wedding parties staying on the same night... More

Last month I had my wedding reception here. We originally chose the location because of the proximity to our home and the price.
